A twenty-nine-year-old skin-drink guzzling virgin depressed over her career as a pink peeler & embarrassed at her lack of relationship experience, a dueling-scar wolf of a free-pawn mother pained with widowhood, a butterfly of a beautiful boy terrified & ashamed of his sexual awakening- the very thought of a woman’s touch brings tears to his gorgeous eyes.
Their world is imaginary, a sum of chemical-trickery. Lunch-bag babies are grown in labs, mass sterilization has grown an unquestionable norm; memory & emotion may be licked away like melting ice-cream.
By Her-Memory, the Totemkin family are a trio of adoration glued by a mutual squid-ink cloud of love, loneliness, & alienation. Together, with the addition of a few friends & allies, they form Halo Cupcake, a polyglot- a cross-functional team of professionals formatted from a diverse spectrum of expertise, ranging from micro-machine nursing, cybersecurity, to neurology. They compete for free-pawn gigs on the trade-sea, a partition of a web-sticky indulgence known as the Image-Sea, a tickling of pink- a full submergence of all five senses into a universe of infinite possibilities. Enter the 14th Deck, a leader-null & global assembly of infinite rebellion parsed from a boiling pool of contradictory muzhiks united under the notion of upsetting the corruption of consolidation- of power, of money, of prestige. Their personalities range from Grabs a Yeti, a Kulan lady who adores to remind the world that ‘big sister fakes her orgasms as often as little sister’ through clever-jelly pranks that shame & embarrass the prestigious & high, to the bloodthirsty Taaj Originalist Zyzka Gutsk, who’s sickly green banners of dripping intestines are left sunk in the wake of oil fires, rape threats, & babies boiled alive in hatchery soup.
Who could protect our beloved Community from the infinite rebellion of endless robbery, disruption, & dirty anarchy?!
A demonic daughter of an angelic mother.
Molly Radziwill, faith-birth of adored Alphanik Jadwiga Radziwill, is designated the vodoliva of the vanguard polyglot under the Primes- enigmatic Katuma Shroud & Broken Pax veteran Sleepy Devlet, to defend the Community’s stability from the tides of eternal chaos. The Totemkin family will find themselves in their most cheesecake-punching transmigration yet, when their expertise is summoned for to stop the undefinable nebulous huff of 14th, & aid the Radziwills in accomplishing the impossible goal of extinguishing infinite rebellion.
Shrift is a didactic & philosophical sci-fi/speculative fiction, told from a vast & diverse range of perspectives that vary eminently in ethnicity, sexuality, age, spiritual beliefs, & political positions. My novel’s inspirations range from Brave New World to Sex & the City, Marina & the Diamonds, the Wire, Ghost in the Shell, & Catherine the Great. I aim to expose the pink of my readers to boiled lightning- leaving them questioning the fundamental building blocks of the beautiful cry-brain tragic human experience that we take for granted. My word count for the series sums to a glorious 237,491, but my story is partitioned into four movements, seen through the perspectives of four characters. It is split into two novels of 113,681 words & 123,810 words. My goal for the next decade is to complete a seven-novel series, with Prophetic Virgins & Infinite Rebellion, being the first two written.
