Alien Covenant - deleted scene - David explains his research and future plans for a Queen

I mean, "I'm not sure if/how the following deleted scene from Alien Covenant could have been woven into the plot somewhere..." it kinda puts a long-stop to the action (derivative corridor airlocking ret-con that it became) of the last reel. It certainly couldn't have come before the scene where the Facehugging begins...

This David-speech needed to be said, "Somewhere," in the final moments of Alien Covenant. Or maybe as an edited GENESPLICE into the flowing climax of the narrative, somehow. Building and revealing the details of David's encroaching mind-mutiny.

It's just too good to have been neglected... you know, if you have any faith at all in the fact that 'David designed the Xenomorph' as a genetic warrior i.e. weapon for Weyland-Yutani.

Personally, I still think the SPACE JOCKEY or GANESHA-LIKE TRUCKER from Scott's original Alien should have been a genomorph hailing from a planet/race of such who trade the human genome across the developing galaxy, such is its fantastic potential for CANCEROUS mutation.

Make (what we now call) 'humanity' the star of the show, would have been 'my interpretation' of any Alien Prequel -- man among the giants of the universe. Make it Giger-sexy, a Caligula space opera. Don't bother with 'a Queen' as the xenomorph can clearly BE all it wants, make all it wants. Thanks to the captive human genestrokes...

Make it an aeons-running human-trafficking story that ended with a 'space trucker' SCHINDLER'S LIST-LIKE hyperspace-unfolding and soft-landing his eggy-cargo exodus/legacy of human DNA on LV426. And have it done with. Fuck it, I'm gonna write this re-timeline Giger-nostalgia into my next Hertzan Chimera story CUNTLAND CHRONICLES. It's gonna bite! Sordid-tasty, real nasty!

Hertzan Chimera - Bukkakeworld and Planet of the Owls - tenth anniversary editions?


Released simultaneously by Silverthought Press of NY, I'm very tempted to re-issue the 40,000 words novels Bukkakeworld and Planet of the Owls via Chimericana Books in these special TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION covers some time in 2018.

Hertzan Chimera novel - Drivers passing in the night - mainstream romance product?

you know, the other day, I nearly (seriously) thought about writing a straight i.e. mainstream, romance novel using the writing voice of Hertzan Chimera.

For it was to be
About partial/sporadic reincarnation
And the retention of the LoveDrive across
Billowing aeons of spatial race...

Still might...

Free Planet - eradicate profit - reverse ownership

"Over time, those things that we own tend to own us..." Wendy the Renegade, in Hertzan Chimera's novel Cuntland Chronicles.

The dreams begin again:
If you wait for something long enough, your unconscious brain will start telling you how you should get on with it.
And this has happened every novel I've written. Since the early works such as The Fountains Institute trilogy, through the 00-ies novels Yoroppa, View From A Stolen Window, Bukkakeworld and Planet of the Owls, right up to the latest Free Planet and War World dual/duelling trilogies, dreams have been the way these books have been structured.

After three years of structural and thematic thinkage on the subject of the next Hertzan Chimera novel, the dreams have started again, in earnest. Now is the time to be getting on with the next part of HC's literary journey across the ZenSual universe. One must listen to this inner, dreaming, consciousness - it's how and why we got as far as we did in such a short (historical) time frame.

Your semi-conscious brain knows what's good for you - it's a survival mechanism - like renouncing the ridculous top-down or insidious reverse-ownership mentality of For God and Country. The brain just knows, deep inside its electric collagen, what's right for You The People and what's right for You The Free Planet.

It's too easy sometimes, once you cut out Profit via Patent from your planetary diet, to remain a cheerful healthy and creative race of individuals well into the future.

Fuck those arbitrary borders.
Fuck those arbitrary rules.
Fuck secrecy in all its forms - information is your friend.

forthcumming Oxford novel - from Randall Revisited - to Cuntland Chronicles

best cover concept to date... :)
gah, I always liked the concept of re-visiting the (United States-era) dream-planet of Randall.  And finally I decided to get on with it...

But was I really happy with the proposed title of Randall Revisited?

Did I really want what might be my last Hertzan Chimera novel to come across like some sort of soft scifi loosely based on an Evelyn Waugh homo-romp aka The Sacred & Profane Memories of Charlie T Driver?

Was I happy that Hertzan Chimera's lasting legacy would be mispronounced around the book-review world by some camply lisping podcaster to Wandall Wevisited... I mean, we've all seen Monty Python's Life of Brian, right? Woger?

A Hertzan Chimera novel about cars and fucking and intergalactic mind-fracture needs a meatier title, right? Hence and therefore. From this day forward. Til death do us part. The next i.e. forthcumming, Zensual fiction Hertzan Chimera novel is to be called CUNT LAND chronicles.

Let the reading world take heed... and beware.

Randall Revisited - Hertzan Chimera - new cover concept

I've had another look at the Randall Revisited cover and I wanted to let the reader really understand what's going on here... that of an Oxford that's linked to the stars in ways that we don't understand as the book opens.

Message to all the government assassins of Randall:

"You are nothing to me. Less than pointless. Worthless pawns in a worthless game. I will wipe you from the face of this Earth and you won't even know why...
"Let it be known, I am coming for you in the safe garages of your safe towers and you will all pay for your corporate crimes against what once was.
"Mankind will rise from the ashes of your metal world, once again, master of his own destiny.
"All gaming will end.
"All time will stand still."

Hope you'all enjoy this:

Go to your local amazon toilet, to dump your mother load of cash... go on, go on, go on.

Hertzan Chimera - Randall Revisited - new cover and opening words...

Message to all the government assassins of Randall, "You are nothing to me. Less than pointless. Worthless pawns in a worthless game. I will wipe you from the face of this Earth and you won't even know why..."

Hertzan Chimera - 2016 novel - Randall Revisited

it's gonna be about Organic Sex Machines i.e. you and I, transplanted to that special place where horror and art are THE SAME FUCKING THING.

Q: wasn't Hertzan Chimera supposed to be co-writing a novel with Rachael Kozak called Venomist this year?

A: I had a lot of contact last year with the very talented Mz Kozak about this proposed co-work (ideas flowed back and forth on certain technical issues or narrative concepts) all the time explaining that I had time in 2016 and we could explore Venomist some more then. Well, I received the first few pages from Mz Kozak and I have to say, "She's gotta do this on her own," it has her voice, not mine, and it's a very special, unique and exciting voice that all who're interested in chemical-realms and spiritual-realms and ancient-history-realms need to experience for themselves.

Randall? I wrote a book called United States back in the day and it featured a brief visitation to a psycho-horror concrete-chase car-sex world called Randall ... that's what it's going to be about, Revisited. A seering road movie with a distinct whiff of nitroglycerine about it. Or just a forlorn building who lust after some decent garaging.

"There's this lovely little car I've had my eye on for a few weeks now, name of Wendy." ref: The Getaway Girl, one of the original HC-story inspirations for this novel.

Hertzan Chimera - Free Planet vs War World - how the dual/duelling trilogies might have looked

We all know how the final covers for the dual/duelling trilogies Free Planet vs War World turned out and while I'm very happy with how they turned out (and the books themselves feel totally superb in weight and formatting etc) a small part of me still hankers for an earlier incarnation of the novel covers.

Some time prior to the final edited versions of all six component novels (FP: custodian liberator reaper, WW: tandem watcher kumiko) I did a rough&ready mock-up of the prospective covers using the decadent artwork of Mike Dargas but couldn't secure the 'right to use' as I had with other covers I'd done.

I wanted, so wanted, these to be the covers because they said, "All I ever wanted to say," about Corporate Mind Control and highlighted the two sisters at the heart of the narrative resolution. We try our best, we move on...

based on the 2008 Bukkakeworld + Planet of the Owls image

Hertzan Chimera - The Fountains Institute - three early novels by

click cover to purchase Kindle
just released now in Kindle Exclusive, three early novels by Hertzan Chimera:

Hertzan Chimera's 2015 releases, the dual/duelling trilogies "Free Planet vs War World", have an intimate connection with The Fountains Institute. These three early Hertzan Chimera novels, written in the 1990s, show the origin of The Fountains Institutes mind-body experiments that led to the "Free Planet vs War World" duality. 

1) Jane's Game
2) Twilight's Last Gleaming
3) The Hoo-Hoo are Coming

Mad, madder, maddest... these (surrealist (ranting (raving))) early works are (seriously) just for the Hertzan Chimera aficionado... you've been warned.

Free Planet vs War World - heavy paperbacks arrive - 2008 to 2015 update

in 2008, Silverthought Press of New York published my (45,000 words each) genreclectic novels Planet of the Owls and Bukkakeworld under the name Mike Philbin.

FREE PLANET (690 pages)
Patent. Profit. Power.
The Custodian Liberation is battling the forces of G3 or Global Gambling Game to secure your rights to your world.

WAR WORLD (620 pages)
Deception. Danger. Dreams.
G3 or Global Gambling Game are ruthless in their pursuit of profit but what secrets lie behind their power of control? 

Not necessarily a Samhain-inspired relevance but fitting, I guess, having reverted to the 'back from the dead' Hertzan Chimera writing name, I've just received the Chimericana Books paperback versions of my 2015 titles Free Planet and War World. And they're massive. I mean, I realised they were 210,000 words each. I should do, I wrote them both over a period of three years. So I know what went into them i.e. the word count is not a surprise. But they're so much heavier than any other books I've ever written, literally (the proverbial) weighty tomes.

TRIVIA YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE SPOTTED: Oh, look, how the upper 2008 image contains PLANET and WORLD, as the lower 2015 image contains PLANET and WORLD. Is this history repeating itself? Is this like a Time Loop where the Author is Sentenced to the Writing (and Re-Writing) of the Same Book time after time. Life after life. Left then right, above is below. Again and again and again, until he learns... until we all learn.

For those who care, here's the special "Free Planet vs War World" promotional website, with synopses and samples galore. Enjoy. Live. Be.

Josh Keyes art inspires a Free Planet vs War World pictorial series.

I once had the idea of using Josh Keyes artwork as the covers for the Free Planet vs War World novels, but for several logistical/financial reasons I decided on the more graphical full cover designs in the post prior to this one.

Still, Josh Keyes work inspired my dalliance a little further, and with his permission I created these stark moments of realisation scenarios for your enjoyment.
