Los Angeles was Atlantis once, and it's set to become the drowned city again. The people who might be able to stop it from becoming a myth are an unruly bunch - a disconnected, ridiculously wealthy rapper W-2, an angry screenwriter-turned-car thief Sonia, a mysterious astronaut coming back to Earth from Mars, and a deranged stranger with a completely different story to tell. Against them: insane cultists, rogue National Security Agency operators, something large and terrible in the Ocean, and time itself. No pressure.
Ales Kot is a writer of comics, video games, films and prose. His graphic novel debut, 'Wild Children', arrived to rave reviews and commercial success in July 2012. And since he's writing this bio:
Hi, this is me, showing myself to you. I write stories that are alive inside me because I believe in love and because stories are communication and communication is how love moves.
I write all kinds of stories; the umbrella term of "speculative fiction" is probably the most fitting one, if you want such a thing.
Kot has been described as "one of the most mental writers of the last hundred years", "a national disgrace", "a master of propaganda" and "the star child".
I made up most of the previous sentence.
Come with me. It will be a journey.
