The hardworking team at FOREWARD Magazine emailed Mountain Top Publishing and asked if Sir Charles would like them to represent the novel FLYLAND at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany.
Sir Charles pondered this request and decided it might well be time for FLYLAND to make an appearance at a major book fair and agreed. A single copy of FLYLAND was USPS’ed to FOREWARD Magazines’s office in Michigan, oddly enough the very state of Sir Charles’ birth, and from there was packed in with… Continue reading
Who knew that flies were literate? Who knew they had such a big story to tell about the daily destruction of the earth mother. FLYLAND will be ignored for a time simply because of the plot formula and the vehicle chosen to tell the sad tale of the desecration of our planet is not nostalgic enough–but who better to tell the tale of our decomposition and decay than the inglorious fly? At the same time, human arrogance being what it is, I believe it will take the average readership time to come around, and probably not until… Continue reading
Ostensibly translated from the original fly text by debut author Sirtup, this four-volume book is a satiric pun fest featuring flies as the heroes.
Who knew? Flies are not only sentient but literate and have been for eons. Fecal the Fly comes from royalty. His grandfather, the Great Fly, is a randy oaf and one of the rulers of Flyland. His father, Imago, disappeared after the assassination of Great-Grandfather Vloid Da Kine and Mother Fecaletta. Imago now roams the earth as a fly holy man known as Phat the Bodi. Against an absurd backdrop replete with Machiavellian intrigue,… Continue reading
The truth will enslave you, especially here on the earth mother.
“The putridity of our world is ripened by our questionable faith…this foul oasis on which we have been spawned is rife with blight and disease! Death, decomposition and trash proliferate…the malodorous feast invites us. Yes, my flock…it grows…like luxurious black mold. The mounds of garbage multiply while the iniquitous areas of pristine nature dwindle…there is no order in this world but the order of filth and swarm…the degradation and putrefaction of all things…there is no natural order…there is only the unnatural order of growing… Continue reading
Flyland—Gad truly shed his disgrace on thee! The birds are on the front line for suffering from the pollution of the beaches and the seas. Books attempting to deal with the issue are not popular nor are they considered mainstream. Fiddling like Nero while the planet is destroyed is mainstream– thus the vision of Flyland and the idea that the planet we are destroying is an alternate universe–not our own—prevails! Ah, even the discovery of the written words of the flies is ignored and the carnage of the innocent thrives.
The Book of Flies was found in the cave Chavet, near the Pont-D’Arc, on the Ardeche River in France.
The minuscule book of fly scripture was encased in the petrified scat of a long extinct cave bear. The Bhuti Fly characters were carefully photographed in exact order from the delicate tanned fly wings extricated from an air bubble in the petrified scat. The Bhuti Fly letters were scribed, according to the text, by a race of royal literate flies that died out many millennium ago. Scientists believe that early man, the ancient cave painters, and flies communicated regularly and that… Continue reading
The truth about fly literacy….Fly scribes busily writing down the characters of the Bhuti Fly language.
Our best scientific guess is that the ancient flies dipped their pulvilli’s, the small appendages something like fingers at the end of their forelegs, in red madder root ink and then drew the Bhuti characters on the tanned fly wings using their pulvillis like quill pens. Our team photographed the text characters to break the code of the fly alphabet. The photographs were printed out on white copy paper and the Bhuti Fly characters were aligned in order. A series of notebooks were arranged for the review of a contingent of Eastern European linguists and Navajo Native American code breakers.… Continue reading
The story Flyland that has created such a disruption in our scientific community was translated from the ancient Bhuti Fly language, the written and spoken language of common flies. The original fly text was deciphered by a team of Nobel laureate researchers and world renown linguists working at the Lawrence Livermore Labs located in Berkeley, California. The ancient fly text known as The Book of Flies Text was magnified, photographed and then transposed by the team. The translation and texting took a bit over five years to complete.
Flyland as an archeological find revolutionized scientific theory on modern… Continue reading
MANDUR, India — Outside Bangalore’s last official landfill, the garbage trucks regularly lined up here for hours, their burdens putrefying in the afternoon sun. A stinking mountain of trash, the landfill has been poisoning local waters and sickening nearby villagers. Another dump site was in even worse shape before it was closed recently after violent protests.
“Oh my brother and sister spawns, we bask in this foulness” said The Great Fly. “The mounds of garbage multiply while the iniquitous areas of pristine nature dwindle…the toxic air and the polluted water…from The Sermon of the Great Fly available… Continue reading
