In 2009 I published a novel in Swedish, "Antropolis".
"Antropolis" has a symbolical quality to it. You know, like "Metropolis" or "Heliopolis". Literary qualities aside, the title shines like a beacon: Antropolis.
If you read Swedish you can buy the hardcopy here. But I guess few of you read Swedish. But as for the plot, here goes...
"Antropolis" relates how a certain Jenro Klao restores the ruins of a city and names it Antropolis, dedicating it to art, science and the humanities. Crystal technology and spirituality are the key words to the new age. When the story begins it's the year of 2165 and the city is thriving, but the forces of spirituality and technology now seem to clash in this utopia. Jenro Klao then decides to leave the city to its own measures for a while, going on a trip to olden times, to Faustian cities and metropolises teeming with combustion cars and scudding clouds.
The title and concept of Antropolis is what Guillaume Faye would call an idea thrown in the face of history. It doesn't have to be correct or consistent in itself; the mere symbolical and poetic qualities of the title is sufficient to make it a classic.
Antropolis has, as intimated, a certain Gestaltkvalität. It's archetypal. We're heading for antropolitan times by default. We're heading for times with crystal technology, innate spirituality and dance. Gone are the times dominated by fear, repression and brainwashing. Antropolis shall triumph. Look around, look out your window: it's antropolitan.
The ISBN code of the book is 978-91-633-3887-8. The number of pages are 205. Here is the pdf available free online.
