Draft Blurb For “Immortal Forever”

Posted in Immortal Forever, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Immortal Forever – a literary fiction

Moving to Zelenograd, a small city northwest of Moscow, is a new start, an opportunity for career progress. Svetlana, a militia member seconded from the capital is excited and proud to be serving the socialist cause.

Her husband Anton, is absent in the east, crime is rising, and Khrushchev’s reforms are taking their toll. All is well until she crosses paths with unsavoury Soviet deputies exploiting their new freedoms, and a criminal underworld invigorated by endemic corruption and dramatic social change following the official denouncements of Stalinism.

immortalforever_promo_colorSvetlana battles to hold true to her ideals as those around her fall prey to the gangs and social liberalisation. She seeks solace in new love, whilst pressing for greater investigation of the crimes that rock the city.

A deathly darkness is approaching that she is unable to stop, without betraying the very people, and the very system she has sworn to protect.

A startling literary fiction that commentates on the defence of Stalinism in the face of an onslaught of freedom for which even the most devoted will give their soul for just one taste.

Counter poses the viciousness and attractiveness of liberalism with the order and discipline of a dour socialist society struggling to maintain itself in the face of external forces.

A subtle expose of Soviet life and the struggle of one woman to keep mind and soul together.

A critique of the competition between socialism and liberalism by way of a vicious and blood-soaked vampire novel in which  one woman’s life and family are destroyed, at the same time giving her hope, before crushing all her dreams and her soul in a nightmare of violence and gore.


Immortal Forever will be available in a couple of years time – so don’t get too excited just yet. At roughly 500 pages the novel will also have its own twitter page @immortal4eva (https://twitter.com/immortal4eva). The picture above, will probably be the cover, or I may use an original picture based on an idea represented in a previous image (you may find it in a previous posting, or somewhere in the right-hand menu column).

Poetry From “Immortal Forever”

The future dark paranormal (Russian vampire fiction) “Immortal Forever”, which will probably be completed in about five years, will contain quite a bit of self-penned prose as well as some by other authors. The following is a brief poem from the draft manuscript.
 
FYI, I hope to be performing this poem in person at an upcoming poetry meet of The Dead Good Poets Society in Liverpool. There is a teeny bit I am not happy with, to do with how one line reads related to another, but I’ll dwell upon that and maybe change it. It is all in how the poem is spoken. The poem title is a working title only. Don’t forget, the book has a very morbid and dark theme…

“Regret and Anger of Being Immortal Forever”

 

Places to be yet never seen,

Amid the blue skies a bleeding red stream

Towers of life with a tower of death,

No mortal can recall when my heart has been.

 

Let me sleep for a thousand years.

So tired, to run from the burning sun,

and a long ceased breath.

With blood red tears, into the day we have never seen.

 

Of places we imagine, yet only unseen,

A torture unlike the deep night we’ve carefully done

Still waters of blood and the stench of death,

Where you once smiled – this never-ending dream.

 

No friend nor kin we have ever been,

As moths to the light, the dead come to that bleeding red stream.

Those hills and those mounds, we have our death,

Revenge shall be ours, a heart no longer beating.

“Immortal Forever” With Svetlana Vladimirovna Kollontai

Posted in Immortal Forever, Update with tags , , , , , on January 23, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Places to be yet never seen,
Amid the blue skies a bleeding red stream.
Towers of life with a tower of death,
No mortal can recall where my heart has been.

В15525

Thirty seven kilometres north west of the Kremlin lies the city of Zelenograd, established after the Great Patriotic War, a formerly closed Soviet city and now home to modern Russia’s high technology and research industries. It is also the home of Lana (Svetlana) Vladimirovna Kollontai wife of Mikhail and mother of Valentina, who died in the mid-1950’s in mysterious and bloody circumstances.

Somewhere the truth about what happened to Lana’s family is waiting to be told.

Somewhere, maybe even here amidst the ruins and memorials to Soviet dead, or maybe in the bars and cafes of Moscow the truth is waiting to be told.

Or maybe, in some other distant locale, maybe across the mountains and the wild seas, someone knows the secret that can resolve her horror, her calamity, the truth is waiting to be told.

Zelenograd_-_Shtyki_Memorial

The base of the Shtyki Memorial includes the inscription: “Here the defenders of Moscow, fallen in battle for the Motherland, remain forever immortal.”

Only a strong heart and determined mind can uncover a truth that none will surrender, for the price of knowledge is immortal forever.

Lana knows that the truth is waiting to be told, or so she thinks.
