This unconventional and breath-taking tour de force does not have a “plot” in the ordinary sense, though one could describe it as a quest for the Star of Bethlehem. It reflects the... More > author’s fascination with old books; indeed, this volume comprises a straightforward record of the excavation of "historical" minutiae and “forgotten” manuscripts, which, when assembled WITH the manuscripts’ contents, IS the novel. It knits together a transcribed oral memoir, newspaper clippings, and myriad letters and journal pages from across two millennia, interspersed with the author’s own ironic observations. Those unearthed documents are presented in a series of prefaces, introductions, forewords, and afterwords that (with tongue firmly in cheek) challenge the structure of the conventional novel, while flirting with the crossover and steampunk genres, and including a cameo appearance by the Great Detective. If you like this sort of thing, you may find it “stunning” as did genre authority Gary Lovisi.< Less

At once broaching cosmic ideas worth pondering (in the tradition of the Wachowski’s The Matrix, David Lindsay's Devil's Tor, and Arthur Clarke’s Childhood’s End) while offering a... More > literary confection to be savoured (think Nabokov’s Pale Fire and Rérez-Reverte’s The Club Dumas), this uncompromising and unconventional epistolary novel of beginnings is intended to be VIEWED as well as read. Eschewing a “plot” in the ordinary sense, this book can, nonetheless, be described as a quest for the Star of Bethlehem. It knits together unearthed oral memoirs, newspaper clippings, and myriad letters and journal pages from across two millennia, interspersed with the author’s own observations. These documents are presented with an abundance of literary apparatus that (with tongue firmly in cheek) challenges the structure of the conventional novel, while flirting with the steampunk and crossover genres, and including a cameo appearance by the Great Detective himself—30 years after The Crucible of Life.< Less
