Binge-Worthy Reads: Aliens In Athens

And they are disguised as Asians. No really. That’s the backstory of Patty Jansen’s excellent Ambassador series.

Political space opera in an explosive five-book series.
Political space opera in an explosive eight-book series.

The story starts in Athens, that’s why it piqued my interest. There’s a sort of Masquerade going on, with alien refugees silently living on Earth, disguised as Asians. (They are of a pan-human origin, hence the similarities with us, and there’s a hint of Earth being an ancient colony.)

It’s been only a few years that the lid has been torn off, everybody knows about them and we are both fascinated and suspicious of them. They have of course star-faring technology, and it all culminates into the explosive event you see on the cover. Yes, that’s the Athens cityscape.

The story follows a young Ambassador to the alien species. Despite the importance of the mission, he is rather expendable. We are thrown into the deep end, the world feels lived-in and very complex, which demands your full attention as you read.

Ambassador: Seeing Red Description

24 October 2114: the day that shocked the world.

Young diplomat Cory Wilson narrowly escapes death in the assassination of President Sirkonen. No one claims responsibility but there is no doubt that the attack is extraterrestrial.

Cory was meant to start work as a representative to Gamra, the alien organization that governs the FTL transport network, but now his new job may well be scrapped in anger.

Worse, as Earth uses military force to stop any extraterrestrials coming or leaving, as 200,000 extraterrestrial humans are trapped on Earth, as the largest army in the galaxy prepares to free them by force, only Cory has the experience, language skills, and contacts to solve the crime.

But he’s broke, out of a job, and a long way from Earth.

A Matt Damon political thriller meets Total Recall action with Avatar otherworldliness.

There’s something different about this omnibus. We are constantly updating it with all the other books in the God Complex Universe. That’s correct, the omnibus is getting bigger all the time, updated with our new stories. There is a delay in the update (a few months). The price keeps going up, but everyone who purchased it early will keep getting the new files. If you haven’t already, turn on your DLC settings on Amazon so that the file is always up to date. On other retailers, just delete the file and redownload. If you happen to encounter any difficulty at all, just send us an email at mythographystudios@gmail.com and we’ll sort it out.

That’s why this book is important, because it represents the whole body of work. But it also rewards dedicated fans like you, while being an experiment at the same time (We haven’t heard of any other publisher doing it).

Does this evoke the right feel for you? Please comment on this post, we want to hear from you.

Summer Of 2016 Is The Time We Went Full Cyberpunk

People said this picture summed up the events of this week perfectly.

agazeuswnzaiynvrxrzi
It would be funny if it wasn’t so bad.

I say it marked an entire era.

The pure irony behind it is staggering. This is:

  1. A grainy, smartphone shot
  2. Uploaded on Twitter (A massive equalizing communication tool)
  3. Of someone playing an augmented reality game (Pokemon Go)
  4. In front of a line of riot police
  5. Because a person was killed by the police while a woman streamed the whole thing on Facebook Live
  6. And because a police drone was deliberately used to blow up and kill another alleged offender during a standoff.

I mean, if someone had written that story in a novel somewhere, they’d have called it far-fetched. And this is real, it’s happening now.

Notice I didn’t say “a black man” on point 5. I said a person. Because that person was killed in front of a woman and a small child, and that just shouldn’t happen. But the dialogue on this is enormous, I don’t want to touch on that.

Yes, this photo is a chapter-break in our history. We have a full-scale dystopia posing as utopia, civil rights violated, technology both liberating and influencing ourselves, our minds, our decisions.

I worked a bit on a couple of news channels, and have a unique perspective on what things mass media want to show or not. I can’t actually write examples, but trust me on this: The media shows what it wants to. But you already knew that, deep down.

Also, with technologies like Live-U (multi carrier video broadcast from a mobile unit through any and all available cellphone companies) and Youtube, and Twitter and every person carrying a computer in his pocket, media has become more instantaneous. If the shot is there, the news channels will want it. A news crew carries top-of-the-line equipment worth easily 60-70 thousand euros, but if a kid on his iPhone got a better shot of the news-story, the news channel will broadcast the latter. Doesn’t matter if it’s shaky, doesn’t matter if it’s grainy, dark, out of focus. It will play, because it is valuable as news.

One day we had some faulty equipment and in our frenzy, we joked about having the weather guy just live-stream through Skype.

Then we got the go ahead, and we just put him through just like that. Fingers crossed and praying the line won’t drop.

And if you don’t care what we do in tiny little Greece, here’s the same event in USA. “Twitter’s Periscope Becomes a Lifeline for Democrats After Republicans Turn Off C-SPAN.”

But it’s not just news. Our lives, what we care about, the events we like are getting online right now. Periscope and Facebook are becoming our allies (now that’s ironic) in world events. Facebook’s safety check feature worked despite Turkey’s blackout, and band Radiohead is helping fans live-stream their concerts.

There is no conclusion to this post. Read the linked articles and make up your own.
