"Dibb - the dream notary" is a satire, taking on
religion, forced atheism, capitalism and hard handed governments. Set in
a fictional world, it
brings back the feeling of post WW2 eastern Europe.
The writing is inspired by Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy), and the recently departed Terry Pratchett (The Discworld series).
God and the Devil both believes the final battle is at hand. To ensure victory, come Judgement day, they need the "One Soldier".
A vague prophecy tells of this soldier and how to recognize him. The prophecy does not, however, tell on whose side he will be on. Nor of the time of his arrival.
Impatiently God decides to create the "One Soldier", upsetting the entire fabric of space and time.
Add to that a Fate with obsessive compulsory disorder, Death asking for prolonged sick leave, and of course Dibb, the man created by God to fulfill a prophecy that may very well throw the world into perpetual darkness.
All set in a world where religion has been banned for centuries, and dreams are being kept in jars and scrutinized by a paranoid government.
But all will be fine. As long as Dibb stays away from the poodles....
The money I'm raising is for a new laptop, and also to allow me to take a year off, so that I will have the time and energy that I need to make this happen.
The idea for this book have been brewing in the back of my mind for many years, and story-lines, characters and twist to the story have been bouncing around, and are now ready to be put to the paper.I also hope to get in touch with an illustrator to help me make the project even more vivid
