About the author:
The idea to write a novel came to me in 2013 when I worked in TU Dortmund as an early-stage researcher. Being a huge fan of Tolkien, Le Guin, Philip K. Dick and German-Scandinavian mythology (which I read when I was 7 years old), I came to form my own vision of а fictional world I would like to be part of. Having an early version of the first two books, I relocated to Yerevan in 2016 to continue working as a programmer. Informational technologies and quantum mechanics have hugely influenced me and my story, which the reader can see in all the terminology and mechanics of the book. Right now I am working on the second episode, which is a direct continuation of the first book and involves Aneralt, Ernärt, Kronos, Enigam (a.k.a Eotta), Tiamand as well as some hidden and mythical characters.

Here is a short sample from the book:
A lone shapeless asteroid soared through the interstellar vacuum. Its crystal core suddenly churned and boiled, and hundreds of malformed bubbles rushed to the smooth side of its surface. Breaking through the crust, they shot up into the dark, but instead of catapulting into outer space, they fell back, accelerating, as if attracted by a significant gravitational force. After a few bounces, they lost their momentum and stopped. Then slowly, as if moving along an inclined surface, they rolled toward the common center of mass, merging into a formless essence. The strange new-born creature began to consume millions of ideas stored and collected in each of the essences, from different constellations and galaxies. One such idea concerned a tiny faraway planet, Terram from the Tee-Ezerk galaxy, where the first true Kakhard had once dwelled.
‘The Omnigods of Terram are accelerating the local informational strength… Again…’
‘Strangely, they have all chosen the same human puppet to pump with it…’
‘But maybe it is not as strange as it seems…’
‘Maybe it’s all a part of the phenomenon we have recently discovered…’
‘That’s why it is necessary to keep track of the human…’
‘And if we are right…’
