Description: Sign Changes is a novel about ideas and the ways they have changed us. It is about the way you came to understand the very words you are reading now. About the origins of symbol use. Kpol and his tribe struggle to survive an ice age 100,000 years ago and adapt to new ways.
In 16th century England, a young boy leaves the countryside to learn to read and print books. In the near-present computer age, a man and woman prepare for the bombs they fear will fall. And in the distant future, a new form of life comes into existence. What connects them all?
Reviews: "Sign Changes transcends fiction. On the surface it's a combination of Science Fiction and Historical Fiction, and any reader of those genres will be pleased. More than pleased! But, below the surface, at the heart of these exceptional tales & characters, is so much more.
Great thinkers throughout history have devoted their lives to the study of our world. Aristotle. Plato. Ben Franklin. Locke. I don't say this lightly; but these are the people I am reminded of in this work. Their keen ability to discern, their scope and reach.
Hopkins takes us on a journey unlike any other; it's obvious that he has devoted time to being a student of humanity. We see the full spectrum of mankind, a landscape of action, thought, and evolution. Yet, always in a manner understandable to the reader. What we have is an explanation for the advances of gesture, thought, words, symbolism, and the spread of knowledge in the middle ages ... what made it all possible.
It's the way things really could have happened: distant past, recent past, and present. In regards to the future element ... it's what still might happen."
