Imagine a future where the printed word is dead.

With a nod towards Ray Bradbury, this book pays homage to literature – in its widest sense – and the place storytelling and the written word has both within our culture and our own self-awareness.

Secrets are for keeping, in the dark places…

“Humanity built its monolithic spires of hopes and dreams and tried to believe that the whole sordid mess actually meant something.” Terapolis is an urban sprawl of global proportions. The vast city state has smothered whole nations, liberated humanity from the tides of history; the place is ripe with secrets…

Here, billions of people live only to give themselves to The Gestalt. An esoteric technology, said to unlock the secrets of creation, it offers humanity the chance to realise its most-cherished and forbidden desires. For Silas Morlock, enigmatic Master of MorTek, The Gestalt is his greatest achievement, but little time remains to fulfil his purpose and save Mankind from itself; death gathers, an ancient struggle between good and evil nears its peak.

On the other side, the Incunabula; bibliophiles who refuse to stop peddling the items most poisonous to the hold The Gestalt has on human minds.

And then there’s Adam, the misfit dreamer pulled into a conflict beyond his understanding. His own desire will take him on a terrifying journey into the heart of darkness. Poor Adam, he will learn the secrets of Terapolis; if they don’t shatter his mind, he’ll become the unlikely saviour for good… or ill.

It’s a struggle played out in the shadows, where the lines are blurred, and nothing is quite as it seems. For the lost souls embroiled, the stakes are the very highest.

Author

Mark works in Manchester, UK, writing about England’s social housing system. No, this isn’t property journalism; some days, it’s more like he’s chronicling a real life dystopian nightmare (send help).

The subject seems to agree with him, though; he’s been covering it for years now.

That’s the thing about his writing; he seems to have a reputation for the dystopian. Maybe he’s earned it, but there’s more to his work. Mark covers a lot of ground. Fiction, yes, but articles and essays, too, on a whole range of topics.
