The Insidious Vine
October 26th, 2019
The Insidious Vine is the first novel from the Insidious Trilogy. If you like your reading matter to be dystopian and to leave you with questions this is the book to do it. The book explores perspectives of truth through the tales of ordinary people - like you and me. A wyrd tapestry of normality where one person is intrinsically linked with another to reveal an underlying fable of reality. Disturbing yet oddly humorous.
"The way this book holds up a mirror to my own life, sometimes quite painfully, makes for not just a good, but a truly extra-ordinary piece of literature. I have rarely come across something as beautiful and unsettling as this.'
Available from Amazon worldwide
The Insidious Sign
23rd July 2021
The anticipated sequel to ‘The Insidious Vine’ explores how meaning is distorted and truth stagnates with rigidity - The Trilogy continues in its dystopian wyrdness.
“There are many truths seeking to reveal the ‘meaning of life’ which, when examined in the cold light of day, lose their essential essence because of the inevitable decay brought about by an insatiable need to rationalise them. The Insidious Sign is the embodiment of one such truth - a symbol of sentient design created to guide the life of others through the representation of divine purpose.” - The Archetypes.
“In this new novel Paul manages to make the mundane aspects of life interesting in a very peculiar and almost sinister fashion - a fascinating well written piece of literature which will leave you asking questions.”
“Paul’s ability to draw the reader into the world of that peculiar species known as the human, together with all its intricate psychological characteristics, in such a creative, disturbing and humorous way, is an absolute delight!”
