In the mythic future, no one remembers how to sleep or how to dream. No one except a few who are thought cursed and damned to a half-life of exile and madness.
Princess Astra wakes each day from her dreams--strange visions of impossible places she has never seen--to the dread that she will be discovered and cast out from the galactic kingdom of Galatopia.
Fearful of her fate and driven by her longing for new experiences beyond the unchanging perfection of the kingdom's strict Canon, she leaves home in search of places and stories she has never known. What and who she will find were long ago forgotten.

Robert Gryn was born too old, and immediately out of place in the middle of communist Poland. He spent his youth colored by that country's gray cities and empty sentiments. Early on, he found solace in works of fiction, and was soon drawn to those that extolled the fantastic and impossible. The possible just seemed so unremarkable among the harsh concrete and unrealized dreams of the last days of communism.
Later in America, he studied too many subjects, ranging from computer programming to mythology and then worked for a number of years in consulting. His efforts centered on learning the unique languages of each client; the businessman, the lawyer, the programmer, the executive. All the while, he searched for the right voice for the dreams that haunted him in every turn of the eye, every clever phrase, every puddle of water reflecting unknown skies.
His first work, Fields of Rust, is inspired by the Hindu epic, The Mahabharata. Set at the cold end of the universe, human stubbornness, heroic cycles, and mutable causality all play a role in the final conflict to be fought with bare hands and impossible war machines. The sequel, The Light of Murder, will be released shortly.
