James Kracht is an artist, electronic musician and designer. Having worked extensively in the visual arts for over a decade, he has turned his attention to speculative science fiction. This is his first novel. Shimmerism is a pure example of the 'written exquisite'. Intense character development suspends the reader in a reality of cool music, weird alien lifeforms, mind altering drugs (or sensory enhancing), and awesome galactic operations dealing ultimately with total military control of all colonized planets.

The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change and Military Conflict from 1500 to 2000, by Paul Kennedy, first published in 1987, explores the politics and economics of the Great Powers from 1500 to 1980 and the reason for their decline.

The year is 2167, and Simon Shadow is nearly killed by a crazed co-worker's explosive suicide. Leaving Earth behind, Simon embarks on a quest for freedom-to Reetar, a distant planet recently colonized. Upon arrival, he finds a city bristling with rival religions. Within days, Simon offends the Unholy Mass, a powerful and sadistic religion. His life threatened, he realizes the only way to save himself is to become a rival faith-Shimmerism. On the far side of the planet, meanwhile, a lone starship crash-lands. The survivors begin their own quest, searching for a fabled city of spirituality; and above them all, in orbit, a powerful military force keeps watch, laying waste to anyone foolish enough to threaten the balance of the Great Experiment-the ruling philosophy that governs humanity's colonization of new worlds. The Rise and Fall of Shimmerism casts a speculative eye on a vast human population whose profiteering fringe blazes its way across the next great frontier, caught in a violent cycle of soulless spirituality. An epic future-history replete with phantasmagoric drugs, strange music, and savage ironies, the book ultimately touches on the evolution of human awareness-and the first confused glimpses of a malevolent new reality.

Engaging. Kracht manages to weave a tale of ultimate cynicism, humor and adventure. A page turning, Sci-fi epic, that spans across the galaxy taking the root of religion with it. At least five different sub-texts circumvent the protaganist on his quest for a new life. Of course, whatever planets human beings decide to colonize in the future; religion is sure to follow. Shimmerism is a pure example of the 'written exquisite'. Intense character development suspends the reader in a reality of cool music, weird alien lifeforms, mind altering drugs (or sensory enhancing), and awesome galactic operations dealing ultimately with total military control of all colonized planets. And then of course their are the spiders, ah, yes....the spiders. Excellent job James.
Very Old Chap
This book is written in rather an old-fashioned way and is difficult to understand due to queer wording. In spite of the great exaggeration it makes entertaining reading, and brings to light the life, habits, dress, ideals, and manner of worship of the people of the year 2167.
