9780692259719: The Automation: Vol. 1 of the Circo del Herrero Series (Volume 1)

The capital-A Automatons of Greco-Roman myth aren’t clockwork. Their design is much more divine. They’re more intricate than robots or androids or anything else mortal humans could invent. Their windup keys are their human Masters. They aren’t mindless; they have infinite storage space. And, because they have more than one form, they’re more versatile and portable than, say, your cell phone—and much more useful too. The only thing these god-forged beings share in common with those lowercase-A automatons is their pre-programmed existence. They have a function—a function Hephaestus put into place—a function that was questionable from the start...

From the Author:

If Tumblr and Epic Poetry had a novel-baby, it might turn out something like THE AUTOMATION.

From the Back Cover:

"It's a tour de force and other cliche things!" -Someone paid to blurb
"Don't read this if you don't like footnotes." - A librarian with a pissed off patron
"[Insert Blurb Here!]" -3rd Person we couldn't find.

Book Description S.O.B. Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 376 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.The capital-A Automatons of Greco-Roman myth arent clockwork. Their design is much more divine. Theyre more intricate than robots or androids or anything else mortal humans could invent. Their windup keys are their human Masters. They arent mindless; they have infinite storage space. And, because they have more than one form, theyre more versatile and portable than, say, your cell phoneand much more useful too. The only thing these god-forged beings share in common with those lowercase-A automatons is their pre-programmed existence. They have a functiona function their creator put into placea function that was questionable from the start Odys (no, not short for Odysseus, thank you) finds his hermetic lifestyle falling apart after a stranger commits suicide to free his soul-attached Automaton slave. The humanoid Automaton uses Odyss soul to reactivate herself. Odys must learn to accept that the female Automaton is an extension of his bodythat they are the same personand that her creator-god is forging a new purpose for all with Automatons The novel calls itself a Prose Epic, but is otherwise a purposeful implosion of literary clichs and gimmicks: A Narrator and an Editor (named Gabbler) frame the novel. Gabblers pompous commentary (as footnotes) on the nameless Narrators story grounds the novel in reality. Gabbler is a stereotypical academic who likes the story only for its so-called literary qualities, but otherwise contradicts the Narrators claim that the story is true. THE AUTOMATION is a this-world fantasy that reboots mythical characters and alchemical concepts. Its ideal place would be on the same bookshelf as Wilsons ALIF THE UNSEEN and Gaimans AMERICAN GODSthough it wouldnt mind bookending Homer, Virgil, and Milton, to be specific. And, yes, B. L. A. and G. B. Gabbler are really just a pen name. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780692259719
