Kex is the administrator of the Eidon Academy, a college with an interdimensional portal on campus, and the intellectual center of a recently seceded Southern California.

Roberto and his wife Sasha are busy acting out a bad campus novel, with infidelities and academic intrigues, when the known universe undergoes some fundamental changes.

Kex is more than a human being, it appears, but also an avatar around whom mandala-like emanations revolve, frequencies whose meaning Roberto must discern if he is to legitimize his new Department of Cartography . . .

Q&A with Robin Wyatt Dunn

Q: Hey Robin what's this one all about?
A: Howdy, this is my fifth book! It's 36,000 words, so either a short
novel or long novella, as you like. A MAP OF KEX'S FACE. Kex is the
administrator of this crazy university in a seceded Southern
California. The books follows Roberto, a weird alter-ego for yours
truly, who's having trouble adjusting to academic life as a professor,
and trouble adjusting to the altered laws of physics that some of the
college's quantum experiments have created.
Q: What the heck.
A: Yeah, crazy.
Q: What do you do when you're not writing?
A: I'm finishing an MFA at Chapman University, in, you guessed it,
Southern California. I defend my thesis in exactly one week . . .
although by the time you read this, I'll either be a totally awesome
success or miserable failure as far as that goes, so wish me luck
retroactively!
Q: What do you plan to do with that degree?
A: It's actually a terminal degree, so with any luck I will teach
other writers at college! It's a great pyramid scheme, really: you pay
the money in, then you get the money back out (less!).
Q: What's the meaning of life?
A: Dunno.
Q: What else do you want to tell us?
A: Help us fight for a democracy! There's never been one in human
history! That was my stump speech.
Q: You're weird!
A: You too!
