(From the publisher):
In Krohn's production, fable-like contents serve philosophic and metaphysical ends, while on the other hand its scientific aspects may be viewed jointly as a subgenre of fantasy and fable.
Tainaron consists of a series of letters sent beyond the sea from a city of insects. Tainaron is a book of changes. It speaks of metamorphoses that test all of nature: from a flea to a star, from stone and grass to human. The same irresistable force that gives us birth, also kills us.
