Return of the Mood

My personal cerebral phenomenon

Cerebral Phenomenon

It’s that time again. When my sense of smell and taste gets overwhelmed by something that doesn’t actually exist; it also carries an emotional signal – a Mood.  So it’s a smell, a taste and an emotion.  Weird huh?  I get them every now and then.  There are a couple of different flavours. One that stems from the my first experience of it back in 1981… when I was reading James Herbert’s The Fog – a smell like burned cheese.  But this one I’m going through now is very different and is my utter favourite and was first encountered back in 1989, the month I started writing, aged 19, the same month the Berlin Wall fell. It’s an incredibly evocative experience, invading everything  and creating The Mood. Very hard to describe in any kind of words.  It just… is.   This one lasted for just over a week, mainly whilst I was away in Sicily (got back couple days ago) so it brings a bunch of very nice and positive memories into the folder of memories now associated with the times I’ve experienced this odd personal phenomenon.

EDGE { novel } In the near future, a prolific inventor is close to burn out. Desperate for a break he grabs an opportunity to go snowboarding in New Zealand, thinking it will refresh his mind and spirit. But a malign and alien force is oozing back into our reality, older than humankind and growing strong as it emerges after centuries of absence. Zen Dow snowboarding and ski resort, perched in the foothills of the volcanic mountain Ruapehu, is about to experience mind-shredding consequences as one of the Great Old Ones returns. On the other side of the world, an unscrupulous concept scout scrambles onto the trail of a new technology that has vanished from the corporate R&D labs. Quickly out of his depth, it becomes a race to track down the missing components before competing corporate agents kill him. David J Rodger’s trademark relentless narrative pace is here in palm-sweating abundance, delivered in a tense action-packed novel that blends corporate espionage, with a creeping, spine-chilling horror.
