Konrad Ventana's Award-Winning Post-Lux Trilogy Examines Creativity and Human Achievement for Postmodern Readers
LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Post-Lux Trilogy by Konrad Ventana has received both Editor's Choice designation and Rising Star kudos from the publisher. This astonishing series of ultra-contemporary novels is positively Post-Lux—postmodern, post-enlightenment, post-perspicuous gems of literature for the savvy postmodern reader. Each of these three novels examines a vital aspect of creativity and human achievement, rendered accessible through the exalted and protected Art of Literary Fiction. Each book of the trilogy is designed to be separate and distinct—differing in plot/theme, narrative voice, characters, setting, and scope of the high-minded action/adventures. Each book of the trilogy stands alone as a "good read," yet together they form a transformative ensemble for aspiring individuals.
Book 1: "A Desperado's Daily Bread" follows the trail of an outlaw biochemist and peyote roadman through the subterranean New-Age territories of the American West, while exploring the value of an enlightened individual in a troubled society. "Think of us in your time of need, whenever the torrents of darkness rage. Remember the outlaw desperado, riding with the wind and the thunder, riding beyond the boundaries of discretion, riding evermore to your emotional rescue."
Book 2: "The Unbearable Sadness of Zilch" investigates The Lost Love of the Latest Hollywood Tycoon, revealing the intemperate impulses of the femme fatale, the passions of movie directors, and the allure of the casting couch, while witnessing the fall of an empire that has become devoid of inspiration. "No one is innocent ... not in this town. In this town the apocalypse has come and gone, lifting the veil of innocence like a great velvet curtain in an old movie house, where the only victims that don't return for the sequel are the gods themselves, struck out long ago by the big blue pencil. In this town, every man, woman, and child takes the limits of his or her own field of vision to be the limits of the world."
Book 3: "Questing for Uberjoy" takes the reader to the remote Himalayan Mountains of Nepal and Tibet in an attempt to rescue a kidnapped Peace Corps worker and the schoolchildren in her charge. Seeking help from intrepid special operations mercenaries and unorthodox mountaineering guides, the covert rescue mission not only targets the missing, but the meaning of life itself. "I fear that Joycelyn Eberhard, your Uberjoy, as you call her, may have fallen prey to a monstrous evil that has emerged unheralded, not only in Nepal, but in the entire region. That is, the problem of human trafficking—particularly of girls and young women—to indentured servitude and brothels in India and elsewhere. Each year, from five thousand to seven thousand girls and women are trafficked from Nepal to India alone for the commercial sex trade."
