Dr. Tim Shoemaker is a haunted man in a fallen world. A trailblazing engineer renowned for his lifesaving medical devices, he is tormented by a tragedy that engulfed his soul three years before. Meanwhile, he battles to stay afloat in a ravaged America trapped within the grip of the Triantarchy, a cabal of ruthless feudal lords consolidating their power in the wake of a catastrophic economic collapse and the horrors that ensued. One day,Tim’s world is jolted by a mysterious call for help from an old friend and colleague, followed in short order by a bequest of bizarre family artifacts from his ailing, bitterly estranged uncle. As Tim wrestles with the twin conundrums, he becomes ensnared by a web of mystifying dream visions, some drawing him into an eerie and otherworldly realm, others into a canvas of memory he has long shunned. Desperate for answers, he digs deeper, only to discover a shadowy family history long consigned to the mists of oblivion, alongside nightmarish omens of an inscrutable force. What does it all mean? And can Tim discover what links the unsettling riddles before they overwhelm him and everyone in his midst?

From the author:

Echoes of the Mystic Chords, Book One of The Leibniz Demon Trilogy, is a genre-crossing metaphysical thriller joined with a cosmic dark mystery – a synthesis of fictional tapestries and enigmas explored by the likes of the Wachowski Brothers in The Matrix, H.P. Lovecraft, William Faulkner, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and the great philosophers and spiritual thinkers from antiquity to modern times. The novel blends thought-provoking and mind-teasing elements from visionary and other speculative fiction, sci-fi, horror, psychological thrillers, high-concept manga/anime, and magical realism. Ultimately, however, Echoes and the trilogy it's spawned represent a decade-long, passionate literary effort baptized in the fires of a harrowing personal trial and the insights that so often crystallize with it.

Conceived while I was battling a devastating respiratory condition, Echoes sprang from an intriguing line of metaphysical inquiry posed by Proust a century ago: What is the essence of this evolving time machine we call “memory,” how does it shape our world, and what does it imply for life, love, consciousness, and civilization in this often messy and uncertain world? From this foundation, the book’s rigorous underlying mythology was forged from the vast treasury of ideas, many untapped, by imaginative philosophers such as Teilhard de Chardin, Kant, Plato, Maimonides, St. Augustine, Newton, and Vernadsky. Above all, the novel owes a profound debt to Leibniz, guided by both his own groundbreaking discoveries and the fertile field of innovations that have sprung from his work – from the philosophy of mind to computer science to the mind-bending notions of digital physics.

All these inspirations were distilled into a highly personal story anchored in an unsettled world in the near future. The tale unfolds over the span of a single week that unearths puzzles stretching back eons, plunging the protagonist into a frightening landscape that nonetheless teems with the haunting, gothic beauty of a dark mystery and menace lurking somewhere unseen. The many riddles and lush atmospherics permeating Echoes gave rise to a unique iconography with a mystical feel, enshrined in the novel’s rich stock of artwork and visual allusions. I was fortunate to work with a talented, dedicated team to realize this artistic vision and render all facets of the work in accordance with the highest professional standards. Echoes is the first book in a three-volume odyssey, and it would be my pleasure to take you along on the journey.
