The Ultimate Fantasy Novel
TO FIND AND WAKE THE DREAMER
Ibrahim Chess, suspected terrorist and rational man, confronts a crisis as the tyrant state moves into the age of shoot to kill. This is the ultimate fantasy novel. If you want to have your head totally bent out of shape, this is your best chance to do it before the sun explodes.
The full text runs to 76 chapters and about 199,000 words. It may be bought as a printed book (over 700 pages) from amazon.com. It may also be purchased for US $5 as a PDF-format computer download from lulu.com -
Warning: this is no-holds-barred fantasy fiction. Includes coarse language, murder, torture, ultraviolence, excretory functions, chumbly wheels, suicide scenes, an extended interrogation scene, a three-meter condom gloopy with elephant ejaculate, a girl getting branded with a red-hot iron, and, worse, literary language, and invented words. Additionally, the text occasionally employs archaic terms which the modern age has very little use for ("mercy", for example, and "justice", and "the rule of law"). The book also contains references to both the walrus and the hippopotamus. It's a book about those extremely dangerous reproductive mammals known as human beings, never too far away from the next bottle of beer or vodka. Need I say more?
If you don't find at least something seriously disturbing in this book then you are a seriously disturbed person.
TO FIND AND WAKE THE DREAMER is subtitled "A Book of Death", and aims to live up to the title.
Quote from a satisfied reader:-
"This book really bubbled my brain but I am a better person for having read it. Now I can die happy."
Quote from the proud author:-
"This is, quite simply, the best fantasy novel ever written. Accept no substitutes!"
