Part of a series of images from the shadowy fringes of the Internet.  Visuals that stir my sense for the eerie and macabre.

If you look at the gallery of images by Montreal based photographer, Sofia Ajram, you’ll find yourself instantly dragged (willingly & seductively) into a universe of paganism and the female principle in magick.  Ajram’s images conjure up echoes of the five eerie photos of the Cottingley Fairies taken by Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths at the start of the 20th Century.

This image really strikes me because of the beautiful sense of magic (positive in nature) that exudes from the sleeping, dreaming, spirit-travelling character.  The room, the whole setting, possesses a story.  And at the heart of the story, it’s as if her physical reality is being warped by the deep gravitational pull of distant galaxies as her mind tumbles through space and time to journey amongst the immortal architects of this construct we call a world. She has become a conduit to the physical defying powers of the Elder Gods – allowing a backwash of esoteric light particles to flood into the room. And to invade you, the casual voyeur of this remote moment snapped by a digital camera, to seep into your consciousness even now as your eyes scan words on this screen, your brain registering the fact that like a neurolinguistic virus, the idea has been planted, the seed taking root within the creative / spiritual centre of your mind – so that the magic (positive) will carry forward through different places and a universe of different people. Look at this image and have a wonderful day.


God Seed a sci-fi dark fantasy novel by British author David J Rodger

Available in Paperback or Kindle

Paperback : from LULU & Kindle: US ($), UK (£), DE (Euro)

GOD SEED { novel } In the near future, a documentary film-maker is covering mercenaries engaged in corporate espionage. A nervous executive wants to smuggle stolen data to Cairo. Yet events rapidly and frighteningly escalate out of control. The film-maker finds himself battling for his life and his sanity as a new and dramatic story unfolds, dragging him across the globe…and beyond. Fascist extremists, Islamic terrorists, corrupt government officials and a religious sect that worships a nefarious avatar of a many-faced God of the Outer Void, become fused into a gruesome knot of lies, treachery and mass-murder. David J Rodger’s trademark gut-wrenching rendering of a dark and edgy reality, and relentless narrative pace, are here in palm-sweating abundance, delivered in a tense action-packed novel that plunges you uncomfortably deep into crawling chaos festering and feeding on the membrane of human existence.
