Do you ever really understand these blogs?
Club Lighthouse Publishing is proud to present “Kima” by David Arrayet “The operation was a success, but the patient died,” came to mind. Faxed memos traveled back and forth between Montreal and New York. Heavy guns from Head Office were coming in—members of the Board. This was a disaster: an inexplicable disaster. The surgical team had been the best that money could buy. The implant, designed to discreetly be attached to several parts of the brain with the help of nanobots, had indiscreetly attached itself to numerous parts, and had, without any apparent reason, taken over the brain itself. It was transmitting more telemetry than it should, and on dozens of wavelengths. Grace’s brain was operating, but in more ways than normal, and in some ways that made no sense at all. Drawing from his own experiences as a multi-talented professional, the author has created a future where the hero is educated in many disciplines, but lacks the direction. The heroine uses herself as a guinea pig to get herself out of debt, and ends up becoming a powerful, albeit less advanced being. Grace Michaels is a comatose slacker whose mind is linked to that of a pre-Columbian woman named FISHBASHER. In the years their minds are linked, Grace teaches Fishbasher and her primitive tribe, science and history; enough to give them the power to secretly influence human history. Written in a conspiratorial reportage style, it follows Kima as this secret country scams aliens, sets up black market deals in China, buys slaves, babies and spies, remaining invisible to all but its own and a handful of intimidated world leaders. The resolution is positive for the main character, Kima. In the end, time has passed and Kima has entered the 21st century and seeks to meet their founder (and to some degree goddess) Grace: a person now far less advanced than anyone in KIMA. Kima is about the place, its people and its culture. Born October 11, 1953, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, David has had many professions. He currently still resides in Montreal.
