Lives Of E


It can be hard to accept something as real when you’re convinced it’s not.

Erik had never heard of quantum computers. He had no interest in that sort of thing. When a woman he isn’t interested in tries to seduce him during dinner, his best mate mentions that he is building one. Desperate to escape the awkward situation, Erik insists on seeing the prototype.

That turns out to be a really bad idea.

A series of unfortunate events ends with Erik getting electrocuted. Subsequently, his life starts changing in every conceivable way, starting with him waking up in bed next to the woman he was trying to avoid the night before. Convinced that he went to sleep alone, Erik begins to doubt his ability to trust his own mind. Each new day is worse, presenting him with a completely different life every morning—subtle changes at first, although soon they veer to the extreme. Reality as he knows it becomes warped beyond all recognition.

Has he lost his mind? Is he living with multiple personalities? Or is this a never-ending lucid dream of alternate lives? Erik’s quest to understand what’s happening to him turns out to be nowhere near as difficult as finding a way to make it stop.
