An Australian author, based in Queensland, has published his debut novel that examines how humans interact with the ocean and its inhabitants. Through a unique pair of stories, Lucaz Abrams demonstrates the majesty and mystery of the sperm whale as well as the intimate access that modern technology, particularly virtual reality, offers to those who wish to explore the ocean remotely in his novel, “DEV-OCEAN.”

Abrams’s fascination with the evolution of whales as well as his proximity to the Great Barrier Reef is demonstrated in his fluid descriptions of marine life and the mysterious, sometimes ghostly, underbelly of the ocean. A key theme of the book, Abrams emphasizes the importance of conservation efforts in regard to marine life and marine mammal life.

“We only vaguely know what’s happening down there in the deepest, darkest abyss where only a few dare to go,” Abrams said. “It all tempts our curiosity and imagination.”

The book’s first story exhibits a wide range of emotions as a seafarer encounters a sperm whale during a mid-ocean fog that obscures the real world. In the second story, a young surfer dives into a virtual reality-style reef exploration game for that ultimate scuba experience with true-to-life interactions and drama that stretch his bravado to the limit.

“DEV-OCEAN” will grip readers with its spontaneity, spirit of adventure and graceful approach to examining marine life.
