THE CAUSE & THE CURE AUDIO BOOK VERSION



Well, having had a bit of unexpected extra time on my hands, (!) I’ve put it to good use and have narrated an audiobook version of The Cause & The Cure. I hope to have this available on Audible (and iTunes) soon. In the meantime, however, if anyone would like to get a copy from me direct, I’d be happy to mail out an mp3. It clocks in at just over six and a half hours in length.

The audiobook is priced at £8.00. The easiest thing would be to pay by Paypal, and the e-mail address you need to find me on there is mark@markdevlin.co.uk (If you don’t use Paypal, however, we could do things by BACS transfer. Just drop me an e-mail to arrange.)

URBAN ANTHEMS SAMPLE-FEST, FIRST FM, EASTER MONDAY


Just about the only thing that's not cancelled in the coming weeks!

I'm pleased to say I'll be doing another Urban Anthems Sample-Fest on First FM on Easter Monday from 7 to 10pm. I'll be paying tribute to the lost art-form of sampling, by playing a load of familiar rap and hip-hop tunes, plus the original records that were sampled to create their memorable beats. 

When words fail, music speaks.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 154: SANTOS BONACCI/ CHARLIE FREAK - WHY LAPSED VEGANS FAIL



Why is there such a trend towards former vegans, who say they embarked on that lifestyle out of love and compassion, turning back to eating animal products and bashing the values which they once espoused? Is there validity to their claims that a plant-based diet ruined their health, and eating the animals they once said they cared about is the only way to restore it?

Here to address these issues - and no strangers to the controversy and polarised opinions that this topic ALWAYS creates - are former guests Santos Bonacci and Charlie Freak, who come at the subject from a spiritual and metaphysical standpoint, as well as from a practical nutrition stance.

Charlie ends by observing that 'coronavirus' is a direct anagram of 'carnivorous.' This won't be a coincidence.

Santos’ website is here:

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 153: BRANDON MARTIN - SEED 4 & THE FAKE-ASS PUNK SCENE



Brandon Martin, a truth and freedom activist and proprietor of the Skatopia complex in Ohio, guests to talk about the Seed 4: Growth event happening there in late May this year. Brandon breaks down the various components of the event, with talks and workshops covering the subjects of Natural Law, anarchy, human consciousness and the occult.

He goes on to address what he describes as the 'Fake Ass Punk Movement' - a music scene that is supposed to be all about personal sovereignty and rebellion against authority, but has become anything but. We also touch on a few other issues affecting the truth and freedom communities.

TRUTH TRIP SOUNDCLASH, EPISODE 5 - CHARLIE FREAK



For the fifth episode in the series, we welcome back the original guest from the first show, Charlie Freak of the Freaksense TV YouTube channel, and author of the Most Important Rock Albums in Music History e-book series.

Charlie selects another eight tracks whose lyrics and sentiments resonate truth with him, and explains in great forensic detail the messages that he feels the songwriters had encoded into these pieces of art.

This is a deep conversation lasting well over two hours, and contains vitally important information for real seekers trying to make sense of this life experience. Listening to the whole show - in segments if necessary - comes highly recommended.

A video version of this show is unable to be loaded on to YouTube since that platform would ban it instantly on ‘copyright’ grounds. Charlie is therefore creating a visual version, which will be uploaded to a separate platform. Check back soon for more information on where to find that.

In the meantime, Charlie’s YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/user/1Canadianpeach

His book series can be accessed here:

LABI SIFFRE: SOMETHING INSIDE (SO STRONG)

WORLD BOOK DAY: THE CAUSE & THE CURE


As it’s World Book Day week, I trust I may be permitted a quick plug for my new novel, The Cause & The Cure. The sleeve blurb for it is below.

It’s available via Amazon & Barnes & Noble, but if anyone wants to get a signed copy from me direct, they’re free to drop an e-mail to markdevlinuk@gmail.com, and we can arrange. I can mail to anywhere in the world. 

In a world dominated by digital technology, reading a physical paper book becomes a revolutionary act! (or something like that.)


THE CAUSE AND THE CURE

Mark Devlin

1990; Oxford, England, and the respectable facade of the City of Dreaming Spires is being shattered by a series of brutal murders. Police chief Neil Lowe needs a quick result, especially if it allows him more time in the cafe. Rookie constable May Pearce is left disillusioned by what appears to be an orchestrated cover-up at the highest level; this is not why she joined the force.

Radio reporter Verity Hunter has noticed that the choice of victim suggests a far deeper motive than that of a straight psycho-killer - a particular breed of retribution is at play - and she stumbles upon another aspect of Oxford hidden from view - the world of “elite” secret-societies.

Her boyfriend Keith is on the same page, and his consulting of the direct-talking consciousness guru Max Zeall makes him realise that there are spiritual components dictating the way things are playing out. It’s these very same forces which provide the opportunity to restore justice and balance.

A crime thriller set during a time of great cultural change, (the last days of Thatcherism, the Poll Tax riots, the fall of Communism, the first Gulf War, Acid House and Rave culture,) gets taken to uncharted territories through allegory and metaphor, and the narrative’s interplay with spiritual teachings. As such, The Cause & The Cure can be read on many different levels, according to the reader’s own consciousness.
