THE RETURN OF INANNA
Can dance liberate a world where poetry is weaponized?
A new generation of science fiction that holds on to humanity, its ancient history and willpower in the face of new opportunities and disasters of the world such as artificial intelligence, global epidemics and nanotechnology; and carries the torch of new beginnings and hope… In his new novel, Sabri Safiye takes the reader on an extraordinary journey that extends from outer space to the hallways of world civilization! It questions the likelihood of remaining “human” in an advanced world order controlled by a single centre. A surprising encounter in a space capsule opens up a striking and enlightening path, both for the transmission of ancient knowledge from the past to the future and for unraveling the mysteries of the dance of the Goddess Inanna…
