The Tape Project, part 1

Picture a young Mark Twain, newly appointed journalist seated on a teak folding chair on the starboard of the San Francisco as he and dozen passengers slowly roam downstream the Mississipi waters in a hot and humid Thursday afternoon.

During a trip which, as shocking as it might sound to many because of Clemens’ inclination to story telling, actually happened, we learn of the death of a child at the hands of cholera and his burial at the sea.

We also learn about the grieving young mother, and how the deadly bacteria that fulminated her child spread quikcly through the entire ship, ignoring social scales and fluvial ranks, to the extent that even the clergyman aboard became sick with it.

Mark Twain and the Mississippi.

In total, Cholera claimed a total of eight lives before the somber steamboat reached the shores of New York.

Now picture this: years later, Clemens would successfully publish a travel book titled “The Innocents Abroad”, which would inevitably launch him towards worldwide recognition.

In the book, Clemens humorously chronicles his journey to Europe and the Holy Land, from the train excursion from Marseille to Paris, going all the way through the Papal States to culminate in a Pilgrimage on the Terra Sancta.

Mythos: a Silicon Valley Thriller

Today I’m releasing a novella I wrote back in late December 2012 and published in January 2013. MYTHOS: A Silicon Valley Thriller was born from the idea of writing a series of short novels in the style of Rod Serling’s fantastic Television show The Twilight Zone.

Though the “MYTHOS DOSSIER” never happened beyond this first novella, Jack’s story survived the ax and found its way into a new kind of book series which I’ll be presenting later on this year.

Mythos: A Silicon Valley Thriller

Former Silicon Valley golden boy Jack Nash solved problems for a living. Now he must solve one to stay alive.

In MYTHOS, web programmer Jack Nash will take us on a twisted ride down the nine circles of hell while he tries to solve a series of mysterious disappearances in one of the largest corporations of the Silicon Valley.

Sexy. Violent. Gruesome in all the right places. That is MYTHOS, a piece of hardboiled noir fiction you won’t see every day. Picture Tom Clancy collaborating with Lovecraft: the result? A horror technothriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.

But, how did I become a published author? Well, in my defense, I am not a published author, but a self published author. Two entirely different things, really. Allow me to explain.

On the importance of libraries and personal archives

I have been having a sort of academic discussion with a fellow friend and writer about what constitutes into a writer’s archive. As some of you may or may not know, every professional writer keeps what it is informally known in the business as “the files”, which is nothing but a collection of unfinished stories, snippets of research promptly jotted down on napkins and, in some cases, entire chapters ashamedly (sometimes wisely done so) removed from published work that will never see the light of day.

Seventy years ago the definition of “my files’ signified, for most writers, the possession of a metallic file cabinet often found in the offices’ supply shop at a very convenient discount located either next to the home desk or at a corner.

Having just one file cabinet and it meant you were a weekend writer, a hobbyist, someone who was too afraid to quit the day job to launch yourself into the adventure of being poor. Have more than one cabinet, but less than three, and it meant that perhaps you were an academic of some sorts, a “connoisseur”, a person of several interests who was indeed on the way to somewhere.

First Time Here

Javier Cabrera is a novelist, short story writer, essayist and screenwriter, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a child, Javier loved movies such as Forbidden Planet (1956), Enemy Mine (1985), Explorers (1985), War Games (1983), Trancers (1984), Damnation Alley (1977) and series such as The Outer Limits and the Twilight Zone.

He devoured books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, most written by Robert Louis Stevenson and Howard Phillip Lovecraft along with healthy doses of Marvel and DC Comic Books almost daily.

Javier Cabrera in his Buenos Aires studio

Atari and Nintendo were a big part of his informal education, which paved the way for him to become a video game creator. In December 2011, Javier coded and published his own video game with his brother, CYPHER: Cyberpunk Text Adventure.

Gamezebo praised the game by saying [CYPHER’s] well-crafted atmosphere will have you typing like a madman in no time. Gaming Enthusiast named CYPHER one of the 30 Best Text-Adventures/Interactive-Fiction Games Over 5 Decades while Penny Arcade referred to it as a sexy, violent, neo-noir adventure told through text, clever puzzles, and beautiful art.

Besides running the Cabrera Brothers game company, Javier is the Editor-in-Chief of the Online Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazine The Free Bundle for over 16,000 monthly readers.
