Infinitum : an Afrofuturist tale

Tim Fielder (Author, Illustrator)
"King Aja Ọba and Queen Lewa are revered across Africa for their political and military skills. Yet the future of their kingdom is in jeopardy, for the royal couple do not have an heir of their own. When the King kidnaps his son born to a concubine, Obinrin, she curses Ọba with the "gift" of immortality. After enjoying long, wonderful lives, both Queen Lewa and the crown prince die naturally, leaving the ageless King Ọba heartbroken and alone. Taking advantage of Ọba's vulnerability, enemy nations rise and kill the King--or so they think. The immortal King Aja Ọba, realizing the bitter fruit of Obinrin's curse, wanders the earth in mourning, searching for a new kingdom. His journey leads him across time and space, into new galaxies, as he faces harrowing decisions that will determine mankind's physical and spiritual trajectory. Beautifully rendered and emotionally evocative, "Infinitum" presents a unique cosmic experience, addressing issues of racism, homophobia, gender inequality, the encroachment of technology, and the spiritual cost of war, while exposing the history behind ancient mysteries." -- Back cover
