Relevant Science Fiction has often been used to comment the present. Fosshaug does this, and he does it well. (...) A novel that at its best almost erases the passage between fantasy and realism.
— Leif Ekle, NRK
Lasse W. Fosshaug has written a novel that manages to entertain, and at the same time take its reader dead seriously.

Everything beyond the sea

Alt etter havet takes place on two levels: We meet the protagonist Ivan Ivanovitch as he arrives in our era after a journey through time from a relatively close future. He quickly finds lodgings in a hotel in town, and work in the local aluminum factory. Everything is going according to plan. And while life goes along as usual in the little village, with payday beers on Fridays at the Chinese restaurant, downsizing at the factory and football matches on TV, the reader gets to know more about Ivan's life before he ended up in a village in Norway – and you start to sense what direction the world as we know it is going in.

This is a book about the little people in the big story. About the individual's role in space and time. The book reads as a thriller, with an innovative mix of worker's novel and dystopian sci-fi, and the reader is challenged to reflect on the role technology plays in our lives.
