Alif the Unseen

Alif the Unseen - G. Willow Wilson This story combines ancient mythology and the somewhat mystical world of the internet, and births a metaphysical work that is simultaneously tangibly graspable, and at the same time, vaguely mirage-like. In reading it, I found myself on the one hand, drawn into the plot, while simultaneously, marveling at the author's imagination and ingenuity. Calling it 'Alif' -- the Prime, is another stroke of brilliance. The zero-point, the origin, the 'state' where all potential lies.
