    Much as an interview flatters the inky soul of an author, I feel I have done enough interviews, and prefer to avoid new ones, especially if the approach is too general. For instance, I do not want to explain what one of my books might be about: if I could have done so in a few lines, I would not have slogged for years to write an entire book. As such, again, I prefer interviews where the interviewer has a clearer idea of what s/he wants to cover, and specific bones to pick.

Finally, I fear that with the years I have become convinced that the literary world is no different from the wider world – the world of neo-liberal capitalism – that so many major and significant writers bravely protest against. Their protests are necessary and genuine. But they are finally useless, not because all such protests are useless, but because they do not apply the same principles to the literary world. I have always felt that your protests work in larger spheres only if its principles are applied to your own specific sphere of activity. If you are a major academic, you need to look at what is happening in universities, and act accordingly, to the best of your ability. If you are a major writer, you need to look at what is happening in the literary world, and act accordingly. There is no point protesting against the one-percent culture of global or national capitalism when, in your own sphere, you gain from or effectively enable a nexus and a structure that is exactly the same of that one-percent culture. It is time to opt out, even if that means that one will have less visibility than before.

My apologies are to those who do not agree with me on such matters. I am sorry, but that is what I have chosen to do: try to write with writers and readers, maybe even with critics, but not play ball with powerful magazine and paper editors, agents, TV and radio hosts, marketing experts, publishers, ad people, society types, more society types, yes, even some top academics, who, with very few exceptions, share that one-percent nexus which is the bane of our globe. <</

above the underground by nya g fleron front book coverAbove the Underground

A Sci-fi Novel by Nya Gregor Fleron

Above the Underground is about a young woman Sera, who comes to New York in year 2042 to study. New York has become an underground city since the Final War in 2020, where most of the East Coast of the U.S. was obliterated by bioweapons. NY is still a prominent city tightly governed by a mysterious group of people ‘the Ustodians’ who are running the city under very strict guidelines. Her real journey of the mind and spirit starts when Sera begins to dig under the surface of this apparently well-functioning city.A number of events and encounters of people throw her unwillingly into a reality and a city, which is much different from the New York she first encountered and gradually her experience of the world expands to new dimensions.The book is about a woman’s and a city’s empowering awakening. Even in the darkest of places a light exists. It is not essential to find the light, it is essential being it.

“There were no rays of sunlight coming in through cracks or windows, bringing a little warmth to the place.There were only endless street tunnels and railways stretching and winding like big fat snakes, sleeping in their domain, waiting to smell their prey and devour it. But they said this was now the safest place in the world to live, since the division of powers in the world had shifted and the weakest had taken the positions of the strongest.”

Part 1, Chapter III

alchemy-circle"There are three gates of liberation if you like, three cities much like the ones associated with the Goddess you have been named after that unites the chemistry experiment: the material, astral and causal. You get a chance to mix those together in your alembic and boom a wedding of chemical proportions is what we are looking at."
Part II: Chapter 15

lovers"By impulse, she looked above her. On the branches of the peppermint tree, birds had gathered. In the invisible spaces that she could see when she called herself back to the state she had been in at Helena’s house, she saw beings smiling to her. They had gathered around Kama and Lalita, wherever there was space. She could see their faces at the very back of the garden, where the star jasmine spread its stems. With the sound of the birds above and the earth vibrating underneath, she knew they all urged her to let go, to feel the earth and sky sing to her, to let her take in the glory of it all."
Part III: Chapter 33
