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 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.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
“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
“This is a book I will need to re-read to be able to more fully absorb its undercurrents and shadows of meaning.” –Netgalley Reader
“An Alice in Wonderland meets a Clockwork Orange twist of Dante’s Inferno kind of book.” –Blogger Ari Augustine
“Top writing from a very talented author.” –Blogger Jason Denness
“I recommend this book to any and all who love thoughtful literature. This is one of the best.” -Amazon Reader
