Not an avid fiction reader, but having known the work of Arthur Versluis (mostly non-fiction), I decided to have a go at his early novel, “Telos”. The back drop is somewhat a cross between Huxley, Orwell, and “Running Man”; but, Versluis has other intentions. Although his characters are somewhat ill defined/developed, we have to forgive him, as the novel was written when he was 28, and just embarking on his literary career. The overall plot is, therefore his strong point. Versluis’ objective is to inform the reader of the doctrine of cyclicity, as exists in Hinduism, and in Mayan thought, not merely as entertaining reading, but because Versluis believes in the idea. So, in a nutshell, the dwellers in the decaying, futuristic, techno state of Telos, must discover a salvo for their impending demise. Ultimately, through a series of somewhat “accidental” encounters, his characters discover that at the moment in which one manifestation reaches its peak/extreme, it does not “die”, but is immediately born to another state of being (analogous to utmost Yin/Yang theory).
