Lif Strand, who wrote the wonderful short “Being Me” https://bit.ly/Lif-Being-Me for DreamForge Issue # 2 has a debut novel coming out on July 28 from Positronic Publishing.
Evolution Device is the story of a British rock guitarist of the 70’s and his muse, a passionate psyche drawn into physical existence by magic. Weave in a supernatural guitar with a life of its own, and the story takes off quickly. This is a stunning page-turner from start to finish, a tale of a rise to fame and of the music that is locked away and unwilling to come out.
I’ve already pre-ordered my hardcover from Amazon https://bit.ly/evo-dev. This one goes on my shelves! You won’t want to miss it.
We are so proud of Lif for this accomplishment!

Evolution Device is an entertaining mix of backstage drama and
spiritual fantasy, imagining a quintessential 1970s rock ‘n’ roll
success story from the not-quite-real perspective of an artistic
muse who makes the music possible. Written with the passion
of a true fan, it’s as unique as a 1959 Les Paul and authentic as
a Stratocaster solo. —George Case, author of Jimmy Page:

This book gave me chill bumps, it was written so well. It pierces
the world of the rock star, the rock band, and the audience of
each. I particularly liked the characterization of the Muse. She,
too, was so real I felt I could touch her. And if I did she would’ve
escaped my fingertips as she does in this remarkable novel.—Gerald Hausman, author of The Evil Chasing Way
Evolution Device is at once a throwback to the glory days of rock and roll and a unique take on the Muse. Add in
a supernatural guitar named Lady, and Lif Strand’s ode to music and the relationships between artists, bandmates,
instruments, and everything in between takes a speculative turn. Strand’s novel personifies a love for art, music, and
creativity in a way that only she can pull off. A page-turner from start to finish, Evolution Device amusingly explores
the interconnection between all aspects of music and art. —Josh Hrala, editor of The Arcanist
