In 2670 at the age of 22, Taverna Glass authored his one and only book, “Chasing more witches“. The book quickly gathered both acclamation and condemnation and quite unexpectedly scooped up the 27th century equivalent of the Booker prize.

Dealing with the issues of alienation and true existential doubt, the book superficially plots the course of attempting to solve a mystery of external insecurity. At its heart, however, it asks the reader to question their own identity – their own confidence in themselves being conscious, thinking entities. Many have called this work a journey into the depths of insanity.

Glass showed great promise as an author and despite the disturbing nature of Chasing more witches it remains a popular book today with outright sales still numbering in the tens of thousand per standard annum and pickup in the millions.

Tragically, Glass committed suicide under mysterious circumstances a scant 18 months after the publication of his opus magnus. He was found dead with no physical sign of violence on him, no poison or disease in his system or other perceptable form of injury, in a locked room. The suicide note in his own hand remains to this day a common reproduction image seen on undergraduate t-shirts.
