Written in the grim and melodious style of Edgar Allan Poe, "Jump into the Abyss!" follows Chase Chaperone's descent into the Abyss of his soul. This Halloween special edition explores themes such as "death", "justice" and "absolution", in a forlorn world set outside the reach of modern civilisation.
“Reprobates” is an exquisitely written narrative of Life after Life, centred on Marc Whitehouse’s journey through Limbo. Its style is heavy on allegory, at every step teeming with Underworld intrusions of the sacred into the profane.
Set in a world where humans are long extinct, 4 unlikely robots will embark on a journey to answer: Why have the humans created us? An original post-apocalyptic story with an all-robot-cast, where the very meaning of "life" and "existence" is put to question.
Louise Blackwick is a Dutch jungian-nietzschean writer, author of science-fiction, fantasy and psychedelic thrillers. Blackwick is particularly known as the author of the international bestseller, Vivian Amberville, an epic fantasy saga with a unique magic system where people can “Weave threads of influence into the very fabric of reality”. Blackwick is also recognized as the creator of a new niche subgenre of science-fiction: NEON SCIENCE-FICTION.
Blackwick is a long-term pupil of the psychoanalyst Carl Jung, her writing digging deep roots into jungian concepts like: individuation, synchronicity, archetypes, shadow-work and the collective unconscious. Her body of work is distinguished by the presence of jungian themes, ideas and imagery which Blackwick superimposes over popular genres like fantasy, science-fiction and psychological thrillers. Louise Blackwick maintains a Jungian Writing Series for her Patrons on Patreon. Here, she goes in-depth about Jungian and Alchemical influences in writing.
For philosophical views, Blackwick draws inspiration from the giants of old - among which Nietzsche, Wagner, Goethe and Schopenhauer may hold the most resemblance. Other influences include André Breton, Edgar A.Poe, Franz Kafka, J.R.R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.
"Vivian Amberville - The Weaver of Odds", the first novel in a series of five was released in 2017 and was received with critical acclaim by a score of metacritics, most of whom have compared her narrative style with C. Paolini, J.K. Rowling and E.R. Eddison.
Upcoming books include: the highly anticipated sequels "Vivian Amberville - The Book of Chaos" and "Vivian Amberville - The Empire of Sand".
