Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- In Between Life and Death Are Extraordinary Worlds and Bizarre Realities

NOVEMBER 2012:  Original, fanciful tales of psychoses, psychics, neuroses, and revelations not explainable by common sense biology comprise the context of Oddities & Entities, the latest in a genre of supernatural writing by Roland Allnach.

“ I have a feature on my website where I talk about the creative considerations I put into everything I write,” commented Roland Allnach during a recent interview with Pacific Book Review.  “For this book, it started while I was walking across a parking lot at night, and my shadow was curling around me as I passed the lights in the lot.  From there it didn’t take much to start wondering what the perception of the shadow would be if the shadow had an intellect, an awareness, of its own,” he said. This form of abstract perception is philosophically explored in his writing, lending itself to reveal different perceptions upon multiple readings.

“ I wanted to work with several themes in Oddities & Entities, and one of them is the uncertainty that resides in shifting states of existence,” said the author.  “That may come across as a rather detached idea, but I think it’s something that has a direct translation into everyday life, and the way in which people segue from one phase of life into another.” Allnach goes on to explain, “As people mature, the shift from the insular life of a pre-adult to the responsibility and  accountability of adulthood is perhaps one of the greatest shifts we endure.  So, the use of characters who are making that transition opened two creative possibilities: one, to touch on the more normal aspects of growth to ground the characters as accessible, flesh and blood people; two, to also take that process and use it as an open door for the characters to renegotiate their presence in the world with the varying states of bizarre awareness that blunder through their lives.”
As a tribute to the acumen of Allnach’s writing, nothing you expect to happen, happens.  The author keeps you thinking and turning the page over and over.
