Imagine a time several thousand years hence when God recreates the world from the ashes of the mess we leave behind; imagine that in this new earth, evil and good are obvious. Now, imagine that a man from our time goes to sleep and dreams he is in that time - and the dreams are so real that he can not tell if he is dreaming he is here and really there, or dreaming he is there and really here. This is religious fiction with time travel (of a sort) and big bad monsters and world-threatening plagues deliberately created by evil villains and a young man who is also God.

This series started off being a trilogy (Black, White, Red) with a beginning, middle and end. Then Green came out, which answered some of the questions left hanging from the trilogy -- but it turned a straight forward story into a circle, looping back into itself. If you read the trilogy - avoid reading GREEN until you can find it in the omnibus edition, as that one has both an alternate ending for Green (which is much better than the ending in the stand-alone version) and the ending published in the stand-alone version (for the completists). Barnes & Noble had the omnibus edition on their clearance tables (at both Memphis-area B&N stores) within the last week of December 2010 at a big discount. The Memphis Public Library only has the 3-in-1 collection and the individual books, not the omnibus 4-in-1 edition.
