„Ab heute fremd"? Einige werden sich fragen: Wer, wie, used to be, warum? Doch Ahne ist angekommen im 21. Jahrhundert, und er möchte so schnell wie möglich weiter ins 22. Jahrhundert. Das aber geht (noch) nicht, denn die Technik ist da noch nicht so weit. Schade eigentlich. Ist es deshalb nun ein technikkritisches Buch geworden? Jein! Es ist überhaupt ein kritisches Buch geworden. Es kritisiert alles und jeden und gibt ganz nebenbei auch Antworten. Dazu benötigt es allerdings weit über hundert Seiten gefüllt mit Kurzgeschichten, Zwiegesprächen mit Gott und Strichzeichnungen.
