Review:ing Welcome to the dark ages yet again.

But not really. This is just some reviews I make about certain books that were published that themselves are -based- upon ”Welcome to the dark ages” which was built by the JAMS in august 25, 2017.

I cannot review on Amazon; mostly due to giving ”Sak samma” or ”Whatever” great reviews and praising myself for the translation to Swedish of ”Whatever”. I am not sure this is the reason, but I cannot -at the moment- review books or anything on Amazon. For this and other reasons – I HATE AMAZABA.

But whatever. I will review some titles anyway and just do it here on my blog. So here we go. The first book to be reviewed is…

”Whatever (WTF trilogy)” by Andy Gell.

I must confess that I read this for free and online at:

WHATEVER

My second confession is that I really just read it while translating it to Swedish. It was being read while translating one could say. And it was!

So I just read it and totally enjoyed it. At the same time I struggled with translating it to Swedish and making it totally gender neutral.

It was a labour of love and somewhat a hassle. But all in all a great way to remember, relive and have another look at ”Welcome to the dark ages”. ”Whatever” and ”Sak samma” are works of fiction but they work oh so well.

The book in question seems to know more than most about what was going on in 2017. It also seems to refer to or know quite a bit about the ”Illuminatus trilogy” but so did ”2023”.

All in all it is a really nice play and made by one of the 400 for the 400 and whoever needs some nice clean and discordian entertainment.

The second piece to be reviewed is:

”Together (WTF trilogy)” by Andy Gell (and others).

I must confess that I myself wrote part of this book and well, it is a great one. And it is also quite a task to read. It is really a inside job and written by several people. It has some clear connections to both ”Whatever” and ”Welcome to the dark ages” but it also works stand alone. I think. I cannot be sure.

It is a book that takes some work to get through. It is not an easy book. It is at times annoying. I found myself at times counting paragraph just to double-check that paragraphs really -were- 23 words long. Trust me on this: They are.

It is really a challenge but I felt happy when finishing it and even more creative. The boost and energy from ”Welcome to the dark ages” are far from over for me. For this I am very happy.

I have started to translate ”Together” as ”Tillsammans” which will be a real challenge.

In other news: I published my own play. Based on ”Welcome to the dark ages”. Also based on ”Whatever”. And based upon the zine ”Between the click and the bang”. Probably based upon or inspired by ”Together” as well but hey, whatever.

I also wrote a Mu book as page 257.  As you were.

There is more to tell…
