Hello, World: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and right here!

The Lightning Stenography Device
The Lightning Stenography Device by M. F. Sullivan Available March 19th, 2018

“Meditations on existence, life, and death are wrapped in dreamy, ornamental prose, and the novel drifts from (relatively) straightforward narrative to fairy tale parable with similarly dream-like logic. This one is sure to please any armchair philosopher.” -Booklist Online


Find it in ebook, paperback and hardback on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, and paperback and hardback at Barnes & Noble. Or, for a little extra, you can buy a signed copy directly from me, assuming you can wait 1-2 weeks for shipping and pay for the time it takes to stand in my small town post office.

Thanks as always for your support, readers! If you read the book and enjoy, please leave a review and tell everyone you know–or those who will love it as much as you did, anyway! The Lightning Stenography Device is a book of which I am extremely proud, and it is a book which I think has the potential to uplift the minds of a great many people. Your positive reviews can help me do that. And if you love this book, I have great news for you: The Disgraced Martyr Trilogy, the three book dark sci-fi follow-up, is already finished and in the editing process. I can’t yet guarantee the first book will be out next year, but if you buy a lot of copies of The Lightning Stenography Device, well–life happens quickly, doesn’t it? See you on Friday for the next essay, readers. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on The LSD.

 Get hooked up with 2018’s most psychedelic genre-bender: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE is a subversive blend of science fiction and fantasy, and a one-of-a-kind literary trip like you’ve never experienced.

The first marketable thought to text device is released for public consumption in 2031. That same year, author Cassius Wagner will have a seizure. At least, that is what the novel says: the novel to which he awakens in fragments one morning after a late night of writing. This novel.

Terrified to have a prophetic manuscript unfurling at his heels, his desperation to evade his fate prevents him from considering that his lover and editrix, Katherine Beauvoir, might be wrestling with a destiny of her own–one which seems to concern the discovery of a human skull.

Told in four psychedelic parts which peak with the magic-rich fable of a sublingual Huntress as she fights to save her King, THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE is a mystical, consciousness-expanding voyage for readers of Umberto Eco and Paulo Coelho as much as fans of Philip K. Dick or Black Mirror, and is sure to leave them questioning not just the boundaries of literature, but of reality.
