Readers are tossed between a corrupted futuristic world and an exotic fantasyland of magic and romance in the new novel Known Afterlife by Trey Copeland. Stalling and Steffor inhabit different worlds, yet they are connected. Antuim, Stalling’s advanced world, is ruled by an ancient and merciless theocracy. The pervasive grip of stratification and elitism paralyze man’s ability to grow, dream, and aspire for a better existence. Armed with motive and technology, Stalling Alterian stands ready to impose transcendence upon a stagnant society. Meanwhile, Steffor wages an altogether different battle to save his utopian world – an arboreal planet known as The Provider. As a Guardian of The Provider’s Citizens, Steffor exists to protect against an ancient and once believed vanquished enemy. The two adrenaline-fueled narratives form the parallel tracks of a roller coaster, all while racing towards an inevitable if unimaginable collision. Born in 1969, Trey Copeland was hooked on science fiction the moment he watched his first Star Trek episode (a rerun of The Enemy Within). Trey folded in a love for fantasy upon discovering Dungeons & Dragons during his early teen years. Since, he has stoked his passion for speculative fiction with the greats: J.R.R. Tolkien, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Douglas Adams, Frank Herbert, Tad Williams, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, L.Ron Hubbard, C.S. Lewis, Piers Anthony, Terry Goodkind and many more. The works Trey admires entertain while sharing a vision. Trey currently resides in North Carolina with his loving, supporting, and patient wife, where they both do their best to prioritize raising their three boys. Known Afterlife is available in softcover (ISBN 978-1-62137-237-0) from Virtualbookworm.com, Amazon.com, and Barnesandnoble.com.
