Stories from Another Universe: Featuring a Story of Missed Opportunities

The stories in this book originate from another reality called The Autherens.

Come and explore this world, starting with “A Story of Missed Opportunities.” This special tale takes place in Melswith, and tells of the love between a lecturer and his student. Follow their love story that brings you along to other places and beyond. The twist at the end allows you to decide how it ends.

Reader participation is encouraged in Johann Kassim’s writings, so be prepared.

The Autherens is filled with stories emanating from all different genres. One quirk about the author’s books is that there is always a cavalcade of other interesting things within.

In this book, readers don’t need to decide on one main story. You can skip about and enjoy the tales from many angles. Instead of starting at the beginning, read a short story in the middle, or read a poem, and then come back to the main story when the mood strikes.

This is one time when reader’s choice is given priority over author’s authority. There is romance, fantasy, and transformational verse. There has never been a book quite like¬†Stories from Another Universe.¬†Don’t wait any longer, come explore this new universe!
