Author’s Summary

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.

Short Description

Get hooked up with this psychedelic blend of fantasy and sci-fi. A young woman unravels the mystery of a new device and the ominous story it produces in this fairy tale within a psychedelic thriller within a literary novel.


Turn on, tune in, drop out.
