“The Imagination Thief” (novel)

THE IMAGINATION THIEF, A NOVEL BY ROHAN QUINE:
e-book (including films and video-book and audio-book) available here; and paperback available here.

The Imagination Thief is about a web of secrets, triggered by the stealing and copying of people’s imaginations and memories. It’s about the magic that can be conjured up by images of people, in imagination or on film; the split between beauty and happiness in the world; and the allure of various kinds of power. It celebrates some of the most extreme possibilities of human imagination, personality and language, exploring the darkest and brightest flavours of beauty living in our minds.

This novel is illegal, immoral and fattening, all at the same time. It’s wayward, it’s no proper reading for the innocent of mind or the fragile of ears, and it probably shouldn’t be allowed, like a triple-chocolate cake containing an entire bottle of Wray & Nephew over-proof rum (63% alcohol by volume)…

READ MORE, i.e.: (1) What’s it all about, in a nutshell; (2) But what will the Gentle Reader get from reading it?; (3) Why did I write it?; (4) What messages does it convey?; and other unmissable treats…
