I am hoping that a number of cults will ban my book. If that event happens, I think maybe my message will take off… “ Pierre S. Freeman
(PRWEB UK) 31 August 2013
Pierre S. Freeman, occult whistle-blower and author of The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, has felt a bit light-hearted recently. Freeman’s new short work of fiction is called, ““Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum,” Part I, ‘Mayhem on the Astral Highway.” And guess what?
He is giving it away for free.
Readers who know his serious work attacking the validity of a so-called ancient Rosicrucian group, wonder why he chose to write a book of satire.
“I have grown weary on picking on just one little cult but also a bit tired of being so serious and somber about it. It may seem so very unexpected, but there is really kind of a fun side to cults- I think, a basic absurdity about what they say and how they act. So in order to deviate from my general platform of dark and somber warnings about religious cults, I decided to create a work of fiction that basically satirized the cult phenomenon. I wanted to take broader strokes in my writing.”
Mind Slaves tells the story of actor wannabee, Roger Bloomfield, who takes a nosedive after being kicked out of the drama department at NYU. Dejected and sad, he falls into the hands of Rebecca Towne, a seeming nurse, who is, in reality, a recruiter for the Holy Ancient Mystical Operations Organization’s Rosikrucian Collectorum or HAMOORC, an organization run by the Imperatrax, Master John Proctor.
Why is Part I called, ‘Mayhem on the Astral Highway?”
“Well, I can’t say much about that? My readers will have to take a ride in the story to find out what it’s really about. For the moment, the ‘ticket to ride’ costs nothing. I am giving the book away for free. Suffice to say that I have developed a cult that really puts first things first. HAMOORC’s Imperatrax is a man who reluctantly but very comprehensively prizes the sacrament of ownership. You could say that he puts a new, gargantuan twist to the idea of ‘entitlement.’ His sacred mantra, uttered only in the presence in his most cherished disciples and neophytes is PANTON IN MEUS ALVEUS, an ancient Latin phrase, meaning “Everything in My Basket.” Our hero, Roger Bloomfield, will inevitably find out how big that basket really is.”
Why free (For 30 days)?
“I want to truly see if a thought-provoking, hopefully hilarious, satire will shake up some of the neophytes or prospective cult members to take a good look at what they are into or the road they will ultimately embark. I am hoping that a number of cults will ban my book. If that event happens, I think maybe my message will take off- and I don’t care if people get out of cults because they are scared to death of the consequences or because the cult suddenly appears in its true light- as something quite ridiculous and puerile, as well as damaging.”
