Here is what one reviewer had to say about “Wear a Flower In Your Hair“:

“It’s a visceral. It’s gripping. It’s soul-stirring. As Sadie Mae Glutz recounted her life in her own words, I felt the full gamut of emotions. This is an American tragedy of the highest order. A mirror maze of contradictions and red herrings.
Yes, this is a bold and uncompromising vision from Kaden Brown. A master stroke of creative writing. You owe it to yourself to check it out. It’s not easy reading, but then again, it’s not meant to be. Two thumbs up from me!”

Shadows of Humanity and Life

Posted in Immortal Forever with tags , , , on August 2, 2015 by Kaden Brown

After such a long break I thought I would post another poem from “Immortal Forever”.

This is about the vampires (those immortal forever) and is paralleled with the Immortal Regiment campaigns in the former Soviet bloc, and which is especially poignant in Zelenograd, the main setting for Immortal Forever.

This is “Shadows of Humanity and Life“:

We are here, amidst the stench that is you all:
Shadows of humanity, a vanity of ego that none dare see.

From the dark dank depths of horrors past,
Memories of man that we seek to show.

To the death of mothers, of fathers, and joyously forgotten children,
We struggle to live what we no longer recall.

Beside the streams that once ran blood red – and still do in our head.
Amongst the burial mounds, trapped tourists on our graves.

We are here, on these monuments of death;
Too many names, just slogans and intent.

A future struggle we want to avoid.
We are here amongst you. Ageless, faceless. In fear of your monochrome memory.

From the families we have forsaken,
From the friends we have forgotton.

Of confidence to tell you our lies. Those we call friends.
Those we devour in a jealousy of life.

Full of fear.
Our secrets unbound.

Our names live forever, etched in eternal stone.
Yet long abandoned we dare not use.

With ribbons and flags and music and cheer, you remember once a year.
The deaths they believe, afraid to behold.

Still, we are amongst you.
Our shadows of life you cannot see.

With Svetlana, Misha and Lucy…

Sadie’s Making Me Nervous

Posted in Sadie Mae Glutz, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2015 by Kaden Brown

81exuOGJ9EL__SL1500_

With two previously published books, both in the paranormal or ‘urban fiction’ genre, you may expect me to have become accustomed to feeling nervous or anxious prior to launch.

Oddly, I previously never gave such nervousness much thought. Maybe with those books – mere candyfloss compared to Sadie’s meaty and gut-wrenching story – which were longer and more “story-ish” there was not much of me invested in them. So maybe, I never even felt nervous in the run-up to publication…

With “Wear A Flower In You Hair – A dialogue with Sadie Mae Glutz” there is a lot of “me” in the book. Surprisingly it does not really tell a story that will sweep the reader off their feet. It is not a flowing romp through the joys and wonders of immortality, or a hazy battle set-upon the mangled crest of some hill, or a happy and tearful exploration of love, dance and loss.

This is Sadie’s story. It is an interview and as such Sadie guides where it takes us and the interviewer. She doesn’t have a happy story to tell. It doesn’t have a happy ending, nor does the story even make the reader or on-looker envious and wanting more.

But in the horror of her story, amongst the philosophical gems Sadie espouses, in the matter-of-fact analysis of all things related to life and death, in there somewhere is me. “Wear A Flower In You Hair – A dialogue with Sadie Mae Glutz” is a story of personal calamity and twisted perversion that maybe reflects how I feel. How angry I am that I lost people, angry that my universe is not what it should be. Daring to hope that maybe there is a universe in which the feelings and dreams I have can be real.

Not that slaughtering dozens of folk is my thing. Nor even is the belief that happiness derives from pain. No, my pain – and perhaps humanity’s pain or unhappiness – is reflected in the warped excesses of Sadie’s intelligence, that her searching for happiness derived instead a negative image of what we all (or usually all of us) desire from the society in which we live.

Whilst normal people want peace, love and happiness and will do anything to make those things real, Sadie on the other hand, is so damaged by life that her core values are destroyed. Instead of peace, love and happiness she wants the opposite. To her, society is corrupt and built upon lies which destroy people. To defend her thesis as such she has built a sumptuous belief system that offers an alternative hypothesis on how to create peace, love and happiness.

I suppose that in searching for my own solutions to the problems of achieving peace, love and happiness there is a little bit of my own beliefs in what Sadie is trying to do. I feel for her. I can see why she did what she did. I can understand her frame of reference, why she feels that the universe has slipped. I know those feelings that broke her. The loss of faith in parents and the world is enough to destroy any kid’s mental health.

So with so much of me, of my experiences tied-into this book, of my pain, and my mental wanderings, Sadie reflects me to a certain extent. The only difference being, I would be mortified to kill anything knowingly.

So there-in lies my odd feelings of anxiety over Sadie’s story, an interview that overtly seeks to find out her philosophical raison d’ĂȘtre for mass murder. Her interview with Deborah tells her story as a horror. Yet it is the hidden evolution of her thinking, the reasons for her madness that are me. And having that made public – no matter how allegorical – is a nervous affair. Maybe people won’t realise?
