Strange Stories from the 7th Hall
by Richard Engen
Strange Stories from the 7th Hall is a collection of short stories taken from the authorís five previous works composed of narrative poetry, prose, and art with drawings, writings, maps, and diagrams. This innovative blend of historical fiction and creative non-fiction takes us on a journey through time and space to the visionary extremes of ancient Chinese metaphysical diagrams of the I Jing (Book of Changes), the Former Heaven He Tu (Yellow River Drawings), and Latter Heaven Lo Shu (Lo River Writings), and the authorís own Geometric Lao Zi, creating a comprehensive harmony and a birdís-eye-view of the destiny of earth and our solar system.
