I spoke to Dawit Muluneh the author, who is also a Deacon to the Ethiopian orthodox church. His love for religion, languages and his country is to be commended. And he’s still learning, not making it easy on himself. But Dawit feels that he has more to learn, more to say and more to teach others.
He learnt about the history of his country which he left when he was seven. When the calling came, he returned to Ethiopia and lived in a monastery as he studied the religion. Through study and reading books, he learnt about Ethiopia’s rich history. Surprised with what he discovered, he’s adamant that others will learn about the Untold History of Ethiopia. Dawit is very open and passionate to the cause and what he wants his books to portray.
He’s a Deacon and an author on a mission.

Elliott Mason debut novel was The Arlington Order, which takes two major events in history in the Civil War era, orders for the assassination attempt on Confederate President Jefferson Davis, and the mystery of the gold treasure that vanished without a trace. Moving on 150 years later two historians stumble on clues. (no spoilers)
His second book is an exciting thriller adventure, but you’ll have to watch this episode of Behind The Pen, where I chat with Elliot to find out more about it.
Elliot Mason grew up in Southern California. He graduated from USC in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in history, and went on to complete his master’s degree at Azusa Pacific University.
For many years, he was a featured and contributing writer for several websites, blogs and trade magazines. In late 2019, his first suspense thriller, “The Arlington Orders”, was released to much critical acclaim. Featured on radio interviews, podcasts and television shows, Mason’s work struck a chord with the public as it touched upon many of today’s hot button topics, making him one of the most in demand new authors.
His eagerly anticipated follow-up novel, “The Legal Killer”, was released in the spring of 2021. It’s controversial subject matter has already created a buzz among fans and critics alike, and will certainly be one of the year’s most talked about suspense-thrillers. In addition, he has two more novels in the works due for release in 2022 and 2023.
Mr. Mason still resides in California and is currently active in writer’s workshops, book readings and signings and other appearances.
The 10th book in the amazing Pseudoverse Series is now released.
Welcome to the deepest, darkest part of your mind, Pseudos! A probe sent into space is back on Earth, taken over the planet, demanded all of the women travel back to planet Kepler425b, all the while manipulating all life on Earth including A.I. and robots.
Fire asks the questions, “where did we come from, and how did we get here? If humanity found out that it was about to be put to the ultimate test, how would the entire planet react?” This sequel to Ice is about love, compassion, understanding, and of course, humans and robots living together in the 22nd century. If we could cohabitate with artificial intelligence and conceive children, would we risk everything to carry on a legacy? Can we meld with A.I. and still be human? Once we reach the age of Transhumanism, we can never go back. Would we want to if we knew that our ancestors were once―? There is no denying the truth once you know it is for real.
Fire combines all of the elements that most conspiracy theorists hold dear to their hearts, such as robotics, A.I., alien Intervention, Egyptology, and solar alignment. We wouldn’t forget to include time travel, prognostication, and many other subjects that would fill the halls of a science and historical fiction museum. Starting where Ice left off, Fire will breathe chaos into a world that is overrun with Robokopias and send you on the roller coaster ride of your life. If you don’t believe a novel can be this much fun, try to put this baby down once you have started reading. I hope you enjoy the madness that is the Pseudoverse as your favorite characters, and some new ones, come back to try to save humanity from a twenty-seven-year-old mistake.
Pseudos, welcome to the Blade Zone. You are about to get your brain assaulted seven ways from Monday. This novel deals with two subjects that most people love to talk about quite regularly, artificial intelligence, and ancient aliens. I hope you find this take on these subjects entertaining and thrilling. I have melded both of these subjects together because I believe one day we will find out that one has to do with the other, and we were right all along about most of our theories on these subjects. There is just too much evidence on planet earth to ignore the facts. As our antagonist says to Ray Nelson in this novel:
“At one time, humans were smarter than they were today. Look at how long it took you to become technologically perceptive. If humans have been here for thousands of years, why did it take you only two-hundred of those years to go from steam power to developing artificial intelligence? I will tell you why. You only have broken the barrier of your brainpower at around twelve percent. Imagine what you could have done with the fifty to seventy-five, or even eighty percent that you started with.”
I want to share a quote with you about Artificial Intelligence:
“Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence – in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement – wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league.” —Eliezer Yudofsky
I sincerely hope you enjoy the novel that has been one year in the making. Robotic Love, CG Blade

A little bit about CG Blade and his backstory… “Great novels comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable.”
Soaking up every English class in two colleges, he remained steadfast to writing the Pseudoverse Series for the past twenty years. Readers are very familiar with the “jaw-dropping, neck-snapping plot twists” in the Pseudoverse Series of novels. Lightning strikes CG Blade’s powerful creative side regularly, as he never stops writing between novels. The Pseudoverse novels are a “mash-up” of historical fiction, science fiction, horror, and plenty of dark humor and sarcasm. A love of the series “Fringe,” “Universal and Hammer Sci-Fi/Horror” films, and the great minds of authors such as Huxley, Orwell, Dick, Lovecraft, Nelson, Bradbury, Heinlein, Wells, and many others, are the foundation for CG’s writing. CG Blade’s style and technique is a derivative all his own turned upside-down as he takes you through a world of New Order using technology as the ultimate master race.
Author, creative writer, Transhumanist, Pseudosynth, and former robotic engineer and programmer, CG is an avid science fiction reader and lover of twisting, ever-turning plots. Taking the reader down many thrilling cyber roads and mysterious paths, his narratives rely heavily on past and present scientific, historical research, and the human condition. Melding the past, present, and future, these stories are carefully mixed and stirred with music lyrics, real people, historical fiction, and the potential of artificial intelligence run amok. Fused with satirical commentary and the first musical “Grindhouse” intermissions in novels (Including poetry), he continues his fiction writing with Amaranth, Gold, Amber, Copper, Radium, and Turquoise, and Granite. He currently lives in Ohio with his wife Jackie, and their two rambunctious but lovable cats, Jeri Boo, and Bullet.
“Science fiction’s message should be subtle. Like a robotic finger pushing through your skull, poking around, waking you up.” CG Blade http://www.pseudosynthpress.com
“The Pseudoverse Series has everything you love in one set of fantastic novels! These are the most gripping, twisting, turning, and well-written series of futuristic historical fiction novels you will ever lay your hands on. You will be asking yourself, “why didn’t I come across these sooner?” The cliffhangers from novel to novel suck you in like no other series you have read in a long time. Kudos to CG, and his extensive research into all things scary, including “politics by mind-control.”” – Karen S. – Amazon Review

What do time travel, invisibility, ruthless assassins, mind-control, insanity, witches, artificial intelligence, drones, a plague, and a blue dog have in common? Indigo!
From the incredible imagination from author CG Blade, here is a novel that is one-third science fiction, one-third horror, one-third fantasy, and 100 % astounding historical fiction. During the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s.
“Inside Indigo, we introduce you to Harmony Gemma Wells, Granddaughter of the infamous science fiction writer H.G. Wells, kidnapped for programs initially devised by DARPA and the CIA called Bluebird, Artichoke, MKUltra, MKDelta, and MKNaomi. These mind-control experiments go horribly wrong very quickly for the victims of these heinous experiments deep inside their satellite lab in Moscow. Will Harmony escape and finally find peace of mind and possible retribution as ruthless assassins are sent to track her down using her own ‘invention,’ MOTT? The Russians unleash a monster upon themselves as Harmony’s genius, Steampunk attitude, DMT, invisibility, her dog Chronos, and her own broken psyche in the aftermath of these experiments all help guide her towards her ultimate goals, vengeance, and possibly sanity.”
“Indigo is a continuation of the Pseudoverse series. The time travel main character, Harmony, and her dog, Chronos, experience have sad moments, funny moments, and moments that make you stop and really think. When she showed up, in a previous novel, to save the day, I wondered what her story would be. If you liked the ideas behind “V is for Vendetta,” then you will find this novel to your liking. Much like “V,” Harmony starts…or perhaps ends…her time travel journey as a test subject captured off the streets and tortured. Her Vendetta against those who want to suppress others, and against those who abused her, and now pursue her through time, keeps Harmony moving through time, making friends along the way. The idea that we often are so intent on getting even for wrongs done to us that we can miss whole chapters in our life is very clear in this novel. Sometimes a person can become so driven by an idea or goal, that they miss out on life.
Take a wild ride with us as we introduce a brand new cast of colorful characters, Harmony’s dog Chronos always at her side who likes to “take a bite” out of evil, and a government agency who might or might not be who they claim to be. This is the incredible, raw, gritty, and enthralling mind-ripper, Indigo.
This book is an homage to H.G. Wells, Nikola Tesla, and three great actresses who have made science fiction and horror what it is today.
