In, The Mediator Pattern, J.D. Lee takes you into a slightly different modern world. A simple patent purchase in the 1950’s results in the modern day corporate city, Belisco-San Jose. The city boasts all of Belisco’s latest breakthrough technology, such as the fax machine, the electric typewriter and the tri-ox system transport vehicle. With innovations abound, San Jose is a modern day Utopia complete with 24-hour shopping, smoking and non-smoking zones, guaranteed food, work and income, and reliable, clean transportation. All provided by Belisco.
But things are not entirely as they seem in San Jose. It is here that Marcus Metiline, a jaded, chain-smoking patent mediator, begins his trip down the rabbit hole. After taking a job with Belisco and meeting with a peculiar doctor beyond the zoned limits, his world begins to unravel. As he searches for answers to the increasingly strange events around him, Marcus finds that the fate of the world rests with him.
He’s been told exactly what he needs to do… But is something bigger guiding him?
The author brings you, the reader, on a fantastic and visually appetizing journey into the perceptions of the human mind, the representation of self and the influence that can be achieved by the most seemingly unimportant of things. Like a muddled palette of paints, everything that is held as true, provable, and tangibly existent will bleed together in The Mediator Pattern.
Targeted Age Group:
I would say that when writing in the Science Fiction genre one needs to be careful not to simply jumble together old scifi concepts. It’s important to be original. However, since Science Fiction takes some rather high-brow thinking to conceive truly original concepts and technology, many author’s fail at attaining an original world, or they succeed in an original world but fail at weaving an original plot.
I also think it’s somewhat difficult to balance setting and plot and character in scifi without sacrificing one for the other. It’s much simpler to write a story in a world everyone knows than it is to conceive an entire reality. In no way am I saying that Science Fiction is better than any other genre, simply that it has it’s difficulties when compared to some.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
AVOID ADVERBS! Knock them out of your vernacular and you’ll notice your word count doubling as you attempt to describe your characters movements through proper verb usage instead of qualifying your verbs.
Make time for your writing. Just write. If you wait for the right time it will never come.
J.D. Lee is an Author of fiction based in Los Angeles, Ca.
I draw influence from thinkers such as Philip K Dick, Orwell, Zeno, Pythagoras, Tesla, Edward Leedskalnin, Gödel, Hofstadter, Stephen King. I love anything that makes my brain tingle, from super heroes and recursive patterns to hauntings and quantum mechanics.
While focusing on my own cosmological theory and economic models, I have begun introducing my ideas of existence in story form. My entirely original works focus on understanding the universe, science, and the perceptions of self and reality. I like to play with paradoxes and cyclic thinking. I want my readers to experience my stories, not just read them.
I am currently pursuing an education in Economics and Physics and I consider myself to be an “acosmic pan-solipsist”.
“By intertwining his growing knowledge of scientific fact and philosophy with threads of fiction, J.D. Lee weaves intricate literary tapestries that display engrossing plot lines and baffling outcomes.”
