About M.R. Tapia
M.R. Tapia resides in Northern Colorado. There, he battles normalcy daily, testing the Universe’s backbone and mankind’s sense of comfort with his fiction: ‘The Die-Fi Experiment’ and ‘Sugar Skulls’.
Micah DeAtta awakens with Death seated across from him, whetting his sickle. Micah has no choice but to converse with Death in order to figure out his own demise. As their conversations become a battle of wits, Micah is forced to relive prominent deaths of family and friends before learning of his own. Each death happens in real time, each correlating with the nine levels of the Aztec underworld. Before it is said and done, Micah will have been forced to face his fears, his losses, and the fact that although life may be too short, Death is forever.
