The Unwritten Book: Xellex
“Xellex is a vastly rabid bit of xenophoric indulgence, in which we find out exactly how a Salock warrior is like a hot fudge sundae, that strawberries have nothing in common, and why we will never know anything about the universe, no matter how much we learn about it.”
– Constance Duke: author of The Users Guide to Infra Quantum Reality
Praise for Xellex from beyond the Greater Connectivity – “. . . sex, drugs, ultra-violence, and enlightenment – what’s not to like?”
– Kid Death
“. . . I have prowled the anthergopolic streets of the Trenches. I have partied with ConZombs on slack time. I have left my mind among the pebbles, at the bottom of a pool, in a cave called Dragon’s Mouth. . . .
– Tuvan Poet Laureate Bo Cažytbiree
“The few, the proud, the other ten to the minus four percent. I count myself in their number.”
– Jonathan (Johnny B. Bad) Zellen: Quadrant Primus, Azural Quadrant
The night air held an invigorating hint of autumn briskness.
Here, within the galaxy’s central disc, seething energies undulated in the heavens, adorning the night with a shimmering glamour. The sky was filled to the brim with stars, like crystals that had condensed from the supersaturated void, and the pale blue light of Xellex’s triple moons shone down upon the genius and depravity that mark the passage of man.
Somewhere between the glittering corporate towers of the Ozone, and the concessionary apocalypse of the free zone Trenches, lies the transplanted heart of an ancient mystery. In all the nine quadrants only one lost and desperate soul has the wile that is necessary to save its dying light. But he is to find that this irreplaceable human treasure can only be redeemed by the homicidal grace of an insane god.
“The death in the Trenches runs deep.
Come have a taste.” -- ZuZu maBlackna
Warning: This novel contains graphic descriptions of SEX, DRUG USE, VIOLENCE, and potentially unstable* SNACKS FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION, that have been adapted to entice the metabolic substrate of consciousness with neurolinguistic and neuroimagic caresses, and has been designed to evoke the emotive force of latent archetypes to penetrate and temporarily dispel the overgrazed feedback loops of habitual mental forms.
*Approximately .00004% of the target demographic will experience a state of spontaneous generalized epiphany due to subliminal neuropeptide entrainment by a cascading series of nonspecific effectors contained in the elemental symmetry of this novel. This is normal, and a desired effect of the artifact.
