EDEN by FREI is a concept narrative in the here & now about the where, the wherefore and forever.
It sets out from the oft-posed question: what would you say or do if, halfway through your life, you happened to bump into your younger self? A mash-up of invented autobiography and experienced imagination, it then goes off on deliberately wide and frivolously unruly tangents, meandering through observations, self-contained short stories and philosophical reflections to finally arrive at something that resembles a conclusion
EDEN started in random order in blog format under the metanym FREI as an experiment in publishing on 1st August 2015 and was completed three years later, in July 2018. It was then reposted in sequence, and from 1st July 2020, Sebastian will be reading all of EDEN by FREI as a twice-weekly live webcast on the dedicated YouTube channel.
You can read EDEN by FREI here or on Medium or as twelve handsome, compact paperbacks and convenient ebooks in the EDEN miniatures series.
The Snowflake Collector, meanwhile, is the first self-contained story from EDEN to have been published separately, as a picture story book for grown ups, beautifully illustrated by Diego Cassia.
