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. Told in four psychedelic parts which peak with the fable of a sublingual Huntress as she fights to save her King, THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE blurs the speculative fiction and fantasy genres to explore the fabric of literature, and the boundaries of reality.

I love this book. It was so intense and kept me enthrall from front cover to back cover. I enjoyed it thoroughly. If you like suspense novels and the like this is one for you. Grab you a copy today.
Perfect mix of fantasy and horror! This book drew me in from the cover and the synopsis on the back. Definitely odd and full of surrealism. This book if you want something like you've never read before is for you.
MIND BLOWN! This book is super slow to start, but it was psychologically intriguing and rutting around in the philosophical, so I stuck with it. Around 20% the different characters begin to relate to each other and the plot picks up speed. The first half of the book takes place in 2031 and then switches to unknown times. The writing was engaging and I filled my Kindle with highlighted quotes and I never do this. Now, I'm not saying it was intentional on the author's part, but the story in the second half of the book seemed to evolve from a biblical type narration through parables, fables, folk stories, classic fairytale style, to modern Fantasy; and I loved it. This is a book I will need to re-read to be able to more fully absorb its undercurrents and shadows of meaning. This isn't a book for the lighthearted reader. It is dense, and the themes are psychologically and philosophically heavy. There is also a good dose of spiritual content within both halves of the book, not preachy, but thought provoking. Brilliant! I was approved for an archiving digital copy in return for an honest review.
