Notes from An Alien

What Is Visionary Fiction?

When I published my last book—Notes from An Alien—my Best Friend said it was “Documentary Fiction”… 

I still think it fits that description.

Visionary Fiction Alliance

However, I’ve joined an Alliance—The Visionary Fiction Alliance—so, perhaps, Notes from An Alien is Visionary Documentary Fiction?

One of my main characters had this to say in the book’s Prologue:

“My name is Sena Quaren and this book is a story told in ‘notes’. Even though some readers may think it is a novel or a history, its form is difficult to classify in what are called genres.”

Wondering what Sena would think of this explanation of Visionary Fiction:

Characteristic Features of  Visionary Fiction:

  • Growth of consciousness is the central theme of the story and drives the protagonist, and/or other important characters.
  • The story oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal events, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices.
  • The plot [or story] is universal in its worldview and scope.

Let’s see:

Growth of consciousness is shown in the story of three planets’ people seeking a sense of Oneness.

Metaphysical plot devices abound.

The story is Universal since it shows aliens pursuing what earthlings should be doing

The book’s for sale but also you can grab a free copy.
