It’s becoming more and more obvious that Corporate Profit and the monetary system that drives it allows mankind to commit the most unholy crimes ever fostered upon humanity.  Corporate Profit is control.  Corporate Profit is secrecy.  Corporate Profit is ruthless.
But without ‘money’, there’s no method for generating a momentum to continue to push technology as far as it will go under a military-industrial agenda.  Who says so? And also, there’s the ‘Sword of Damocles’ threat of Eugenics associated with the corporate agenda.  I personally find the Eugenics pill the most difficult to swallow but history is telling us that’s where we’re headed so that the Banking Elite can enjoy their planet.  
And that’s what they truly believe, that it’s their planet, that they have the right to it.  Not anyone else.
So, cancel Money (most of it’s fiat money anyway, based on debt and tending to hyper-inflation), cancel Profit, cancel Private Ownership and Patents, cancel Countries, cancel National Insurance numbers because all these invented concepts increase the likelihood of our demise as a planetary species – our mass murder.  
But how can such a liberated civilisation contribute to the proper use of the planet’s resources.  What is the aim of a planet of willing intelligent people helping the world be a better place? Where’s the fun in that?
We need to seriously consider the possibility that Progress can exist without Corporate Profit, that we as a people can cooperate on Free or Open Source projects that help mankind to live in creative harmony.  Take away the incentive, release the guilt; destroy the agenda, secrecy and horror of controlled corporate contemporary life.

Oxford, UK-based artist/writer Mike Philbin has been at the helm of the Chimeraworld series from Chimericana Books from its inception five years ago. It was intended as an antidote to the dull, grey horror-genre franchise that has stained our retail shelves in lieu of good horrific escapism. The ‘genreclectic’ themes have been:

#1 twenty three bizarro tales
#2 twenty three tales of total madness
#3 twenty three tales of spiritual decay
#4 twenty three tales of traffic mayhem
#5 twenty three misfit tales.

Yes, there are twenty-three writers from all over the planet in each issue of Chimeraworld. A unique feature of Chimeraworld #6 (twenty three tales of leaderless resistance) is that You The People are an active part, this year, and space is given for YOU to note down how you helped affect a real change on this planet.
Military industrial complex, detention camps for dissidents, rfid chip global tyranny, false flag terrorism, biochemical attack, martial law on our streets, total surveillance state, the suppression of knowledge is power . . . following a mass awakening, the global elite are annihilated.

Chimeraworld #6, contains stories depicting the world after the coming revolution, as mankind returns to a life stripped of Capitalism and Mass Media Propaganda. A world without the Google-fuelled glare of the bankers dictating every move you make. A world of travel, a journey through real freedom. An uncensored world of chaos, uncertainty and anarchy. A world of social and spiritual enlightenment; no money, no banks and no business loans.
This is the story of how yourself and your family get by once everything you know about Modern Society has been eradicated, when the Global Elite’s power grab has been exposed and has failed in spectacular fashion. What was your part in the revolution and how did you contribute to new world disorder?

Chimeraworld #6 is a testament to the awakening of mankind, stories about immersion in the galactic melting pot – hardcore experimentation, dimensional travel, body-swapping with alien races, DNA bartering, galactic superheroes, real cultural exchange. New morality, new belief systems, new family, new social life, no more wars, creativity is king, liberation from the daily grind. Stories from Alex Severin, Tina Starr, Paul Pinn, Andrew Hook, Danny O’Connor, James A. Stewart, Arley Sorg, Robert Guffey, Sheri Fresonke Harper, Justin Oldham, Thomas Henry Dylan, Mitchell Warren, C. C. Parker, Jeff Drake, Tim Lieder, Aaron Polson, Scott M. Sandridge, John Walters, Peter Diseth, Kevin James Miller, Richard Marsden, J.W. Ocker and You The People.

Chimeraworld #6 comes out from under that stomping corporate jackboot and shows the six billion free people of this planet how they won!

Chimeraworld #6 (new world disorder) is available now in American trade paperback format 6″ by 9″ trade paperback from Chimericana Books.

Writerly Update 10/12/09

I finally got my computer fixed and now in the process of playing Catch-up yet again. Sigh. Just when I thought I was on a roll…. 😦

Due to the possibility of the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccine killing millions of potential readers, Mike Philbin decided to release Chimeraworld #6: New World Disorder early. It’s available now.

“In the near future, the world awakens to the corporate threat of the New World Order: a leaderless resistance defeats the global elite. Stories from Alex Severin, Tina Starr, Paul Pinn, Andrew Hook, Danny O’Connor, James A. Stewart, Arley Sorg, Robert Guffey, Sheri Fresonke Harper, Justin Oldham, Thomas Henry Dylan, Mitchell Warren, C. C. Parker, Jeff Drake, Tim Lieder, Aaron Polson, Scott M. Sandridge, John Walters, Peter Diseth, Kevin James Miller, Richard Marsden, J.W. Ocker and You The People.”

I perused a couple stories when I got the PDF to proof my little tale, “Transhuman”, and I have to tell you it’s some of the most emotionally powerful stories I’ve read in a very long time. Fortunately, the PDF arrived and I was able to proof my story before my computer got whacked by a bunch of viruses.

Also, “A Nighttime Business Arrangement,” will appear in the upcoming anthology Dreams and Screams. So that makes two nice anthos this year for you to get.

And, last but certainly not least, I’m this month’s Featured Author for Issue 5 of Digital Dragon Magazine, so be sure to check out my humorous little tale, “ASSP on Europa.” 🙂

Oh, and I moved. So in addition to getting my reviews for Withersin caught up and F&T updated, I also have to notify a few people of my new address.

And sign a couple contracts.

And…

You get the picture.

Also, I had a minor role in the audio play, Night at the Ballet: Giselle. I play one of the gravediggers. 😉
