About the Book:
Genre: A Comic Murder-Mystery Conspiracy Thriller.
So, my previous novel "A Meaningless Sequence of Arbitrary Symbols" teaches the reader how to be a Game Designer. (http://am-so-as.webs.com/)
This novel "Cosmographicus Mysteriosum" teaches how to be a Transmedia Writer.
It's: a parody of The Da Vinci Code meets Richard Dawkins, I guess. And I guess maybe I will throw in some filthy sex scenes, like `50 Shades'.
The gist is, a guy, Oscar (23), and a girl, Bongo (23) meet when they co-discover a dead guy, while browsing in a public lending library. The 2 fall madly in love, through the police investigation And they set out as amateur sleuths, solving the mystery/strange cover-up that ensues...
And - just for fun, I'm using some stuff I discovered here:
Anyway - they stumble over a massive conspiracy - by a secret sect of Theological librarians, to cover up: Science. (Funny.)
About the Author:
Joe T Velikovsky is a novelist, feature film, videogame, TV and comix writer. And a Judge for the national Writers Guild.
So, my PhD thesis is on: Philosophy, Creativity, Narratology and Screenwriting.
Some novels I admire, and writers who weave a Philosophy into their work:
Douglas Adams - absurdity of the cosmos/
Terry Pratchett - ditto/
Walden – Transcendentalism/
Fight Club – Anti-corporatism (anti-Marketing)/
The Name of the Rose – Postmodernism, etc/
The Da Vinci Code – The Church conspiracy/
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert M Pirsig – ethics/
Catch-22 - Heller - the absurdity/insanity of war (and human communication)...
Anyway what that all means, who knows...
