In-between writing the second instalment of the Vivian Amberville series, I'm writing "God is a Robot" - a humorous sci-fi novel.

We wouldn’t have as much as a bridge in this world without a mind to imagine it. We have built and continue to build this world on the premise: thoughts become things.

Vivian’s story merely extrapolates on that idea. She is a 13-year old, who discovers she can reshape reality in her image. This fantasy book, thus becomes my way of telling the reader: we are responsible for the ideas we breed, and we are responsible for the world we create.(less)

I reccomend this short-story to anyone who can handle a controversial read based on our deep-seated, if humanly, fear of death.

Jump into the Abyss!

It was written as an homage to both Edgar A. Poe and the narrative of Dante's Inferno. It centers around an innocent's man's premature entombment over the festering remains of his late wife.

This particular story stirred a lot of controversy since it... Read more of this blog post »

“As the Weaver, so is the Thread”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“Our dream of happiness is waiting for another universe to collide with our own, and change what we ourselves cannot.”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“And our love goes beyond flesh; it transcends Death's reminder. In the Underworld Library, two books sharing a binder”
Louise Blackwick, Jump into the Abyss!

“As the Weaver, so is the Thread”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“Our dream of happiness is waiting for another universe to collide with our own, and change what we ourselves cannot.”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“A day may come when all hope is lost; when the oceans run red with our blood, and our darkest hour is upon us— and when it comes, that red day of reckoning, we turn, my dears, not to our rulers-in-good-times, but to our leaders-in-bad-times.”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“Vivian’s first impression of Solidago was that she had travelled back in time, but not to a time where architecture had been invented. All houses were twisted out of shape, to say the least. Windows either too large to open or too small to make a difference peppered the city in places one would never dream of having one.

The walls were mostly cast in brickwork by the kind of stonemason whose day job was financial advising. Skewed walls with more bricks than mortar, knotted chimneys keeping the smoke inside and cupping rooftops whose main purpose was to gather rainwater – Solidago had it all and more.

As the oldest civilization of the cosmos, Alarians might have been excellent at healing, philosophizing and weaving into the fabric of reality, but they were very poor city builders.”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds

“By weaving their thoughts and feelings into the substance of reality, the Weavers had ensured anyone writing about them would secure an instant bestseller – which wasn’t particularly difficult, considering the Weavers held the strings on the one holding the pen.

Those who controlled the Pattern, controlled reality.”
Louise Blackwick, The Weaver of Odds
