The Greatest Fear of All

.

.

Did you ever get the impression that the same people have run this planet forever and will go on doing so? Not in a conspiratorial way I mean, but the same character types have always come to the fore. This world rewards certain traits that are anathema to many of the rest of us. Maybe it’s because they do the work that our deepest thoughts and fears do not want to admit must be done? If they do something drastic, it’s not our fault -it’s theirs.

.

Whatever the reason, who cares? Don’t you think these types get enough press and publicity? At times, even publicising their atrocities and misdemeanours along with their achievements (if only to be ‘fair and balanced’) can sometimes do more to puff up their image than anything else.

.

As a lie leads to another greater lie, to a web of tangled lies, so too with deception and political wrangling and killing and death. The progression from one to another can often easily be charted in an ever-growing throat-grabbing addictive blob of Despair, Fear and Negative energy. Stories of great people (or even not so great) not mired in blood and violence tend to be less linear (“he did this in 1903, then moved to another city, got married and didn’t pop up again until 1922, when he did xyz.”)

Ooyay is a conscious escape, not only from the horrors of the world as we know it, but also from the type of people I feel have sucked the world dry to their own ends and advancement. It lends no flame of publicity to violence or violent ideas, yet is a thoroughly engrossing, fun, adventure such has never been seen before (even if you’ve heard that before).

Professor Crastinator is a man, who, thirty years ago has lead a kind of new Rennaissance, reforming the world, re-shaping it to his own way of thinking in many ways. Of course he is quite mad (has there ever been such an influential individual who hasn’t been?) and this madness is reflected in the world he has helped create. Now Marcus Crastinator is 89 years old and wants everything to stay the same, but when his little doggie goes missing he finds himself being catapulted through his greatest fear again and again in order to find him. CHANGE is what the Professor fears most of all and CHANGE is what he must endure if he’s ever to see his Ooyay again.

You can buy Ooyay from any online bookstore. Or a signed copy from here.
