alex_exarchoJ got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Retrofuturistic black and white cover for a game-changing mystery novel
Check out alex_exarchoJ's Book cover contest…
Alex Exarchos was born and raised in Athens, Greece, and for the past eight years he has been working for a major international organisation in Frankfurt, Germany. He has self-published, thus far, two books in English: - "MONO", in 2013, which is an idiosyncratic and a bit experimental mystery and science-fiction novella; - "Grey Zones of Savoir-Vivre", in 2017, which is a science-fiction novel set in the near future, and centered around a troubled, but persistent love story, amidst the storm of a momentous political power struggle and the emergence of the first Artificial Intelligence in the history of humanity. Moreover, he recently published in 2018 a science fiction / romance novel in Greek, titled "Danae", via the Greek publishing house ("Alloste"). Other than that, he is constantly writing something, in English or Greek, be it fiction, poetry or non-fiction and I am always keen on embarking on new creative projects. Overall, he is drawn by anything extraordinary, beautiful, magical and groundbreaking he comes across or simply conceives with his imagination, and he perceives it as his mission to flood the world with things which are naturally preceded by the aforementioned adjectives. You may find information on, and access to, Alex Exarchos's entire body of work, in my website: http://www.alexarchos.com
They say that in the beginning and in the end there is only Darkness.And that, at some completely random point in time, a naked man who cannot speak appears on White City’s First Street, with nothing on him, save three images on his mind:The image of a girl; the image of a machine; and the image of a wet, crescent, moon.On the other hand there is a girl, in another White City, so far and yet so close to its sister city.The girl is doing her PhD thesis in sociology, yet she soon finds herself entangled in the craziest of stories; a story fueled by bizarre, surreal and disturbing events, by her quirky dreams and by her interactions with the heir to her homeland’s most powerful and notorious family.And this is just the beginning of Part One of a story as unusual and mysterious as it is addictive for the reader.A story about the eternal clash of the cosmic forces of Order versus the cosmic Forces of Chaos; but most of all a story about the tragically comical, and comically tragic, figure standing in the middle of the Arena where these two opposing forces meet each other with such relentless ferocity:The Human Being
Readers of authors such as Franz Kafka, Thomas Pynchon, Douglas Adams as well as aficionados of David Lynch, as the book is of comparable style to the best and most prominent works by such creators.
