Dead News picked up on an Associated Press report that says Robert Hunter is living the ascetic life these days, writing novels in Northern California. According to the story, Hunter has already written one full novel called Doppleganger, which has something to do with the quantum mechanics theory of physics.
“I feel like I’ve got ten books in me,” Hunter says.
Steve Silberman, co-author of the Grateful Dead book Skeleton Key, said, “Hunter really located a traditional sense of character in story line found in English Literature and childhood ballads.”
No word yet on when Doppleganger will hit stores.
