Dowsing for Publication



Back in 2001 when I was in the United Kingdom taking a course to be an NLP Trainer, I was writing the novel Dowsing for Intelligence. a comic story about psychology and terrorism. Unfortunately, very soon after we returned from England, the 911 attack rendered terrorism very far from humorous, so I shelved the book. Now that I am retired, I’ve updated it. Both because of changes in technology and politics, we are hardly the same people we were 14 years ago. I am offering it on Amazon Kindle, perhaps the easiest way to publish. I describe it there in the following manner:


This comic fantasy is about the bits of the nineteenth century that are still with us, a kind of reverse steampunk. One of the chief characters is a gypsy dachshund, named Django, who trots the globe with an unemployed scholar of Victoriana. Traveling through Roma mentalism to New Age and beyond, they seek a dowsing weaver/healer and flee fashion terrorists. Humming in the background is a mass-murder mystery running from Jack the Ripper through the holocaust toward the apocalyptic terror that might come. Imagine The Da Vinci Code’s Robert Langdon using The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to track down “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”
