Love and hope? Risk, adventure, reward? What confronts the human heart in a world filled with challenges. What does it mean to be human? Are we just a beautifully unique amalgam of DNA and chromosomes?
Are we all the same—all around the world—in that we similarly experience love, fear, pride, and joy? Or, is there more—another factor not seen under the microscope?
The twenty-one vignettes in The Sparkzgott Anthology take us on a journey to find the answers.
We travel with a yet-to-be-conceived child into the disparate lives of people around the world—a journey to consider that other “factor” and the differences in perceptions of risk, adventure, and reward that make us each unique miracles of creation.
Prepare for heartbreak, love, inspiration, and revelation as portrayed in the lives of the characters in The Sparkzgott Anthology.—Readers’ Favorite Review—
A brilliant book, a heartfelt anthology full of hope and love...deals with many important contemporary issues, such as gender identity, race, and politics.—Midwest Book Review—
The Sparkzgott Anthology comes from an unusual point of view: a yet-to-be-conceived child that considers the facets of what makes us human.
This examination takes the form of short vignettes of couples around the world who are in the process of creating life via their couplings, perspectives, and impulses. Sparkzgott is defined as "the spark at the instant of ignition—of union." What precedes this spark and the recognitions that accompany it are the subject of a wide-ranging set of examinations designed to titillate, educate, and spark reflections beyond the usual literary format.
The vignette themes blossom a series of touchstones which both explain and explore Sparkzgott, the ironies and inconsistencies of human thought and action, and the motivating forces which lead up to the creation of another thinking human.
