BELVIDERE, Ill. - Oct. 27, 2013 - PRLog -- Twenty years ago Doug Shiloh began work on a vast multimedia creative project as a protest against World War III. The first part of the many layered project will be released in 2014. And it's sure to be a Kickstarter favorite.

"The whole thing is a big creative project, with many layers, and one I take out and look at and go back to work on other projects," Shiloh said. Lately he's been readying the ebook, audiobook and reissue of his 2008 satirical novel "Pookoo."

The alumnus of Middlebury College's prestigious Bread Loaf Writers' Conference recently put on iTunes and Amazon Chapter 12 of his audiobook, titled "The 6-Foot Lobster" and in some ways, that project couldn't be farther than his dreams of preventing a nuclear war. http://www.amazon.com/The-6-Foot-Lobster/dp/B00FK9EN4K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1380761569&sr=8-3&keywords=doug+shiloh

"I'm a storyteller, with many things in Life to relate to people," he said. "And this is one thing.

"The Japanese Fukushima nuclear disaster put my project back on my own radar," Shiloh added. "Man has to have a complete hold over its nuclear power and its nuclear arms, and that tsunami showed our vulnerability. I think a lot of people have become complacent over the dangers of the atom, and many who aren't aware of the lessons to learn from Chernobyl, Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

Shiloh, who has worked for several newspapers including a Gannett-owned paper, producd two "Centerstage" cyber chats on AOL in 1995 and 1996 with Lt. Col. Fred J. Olivi, co-pilot on the Nagasaki atomic bomb mission that ended World War II. He interviewed Manhatten Project scientists, and more. He even served as a PR specialist to Olivi over 18 months, as well as doing the final edit of Olivi's non-fiction book about the war time mission.

The idea began long ago, when Shiloh grew up during the Cold War. His late father was an engineer who worked on nuclear submarine manufacturing projects, and that background would have an effect on young Shiloh.

In 2005 he and songwriting partner La Verne J. Pink performed at the Rockford, Illinois "Hiroshima Peace Day Remembrance" event as headliners.

"All of this became good research for a large story that still looms over Mankind," Shiloh said.

Shiloh would like to see the project as an evergreen project to create awareness, as well as a scholarship fund to help college students become peacemakers. The 2014 ebook and paperback will be used to send copies to world leaders, such as at the United Nations, and "troubled countries" to show that the nuclear option, in war, is never the answer.

"There are many, many more levels to it, including a feature film script which might be made through Kickstarter," Shiloh said.

He may be found at Twitter and Facebook, and participants and backers who want world peace are encouraged to contact Shiloh.

"This will be a global project, continually occuring over many years to come," he added.
