DDA #1 - case of missing century - who is Dierdre Openhouse?

so, the new novel by Lorien Howell (The Dream Detective Agency #1, ...and the case of the missing century) is an extension of the children's short story The Amazing Adventures of Deirdre Openhouse, Dream Detective but who is Dierdre Openhouse.

PLANET OF THE OWLS
this was a 2008 novel Planet of the Owls by Hertzan Chimera and at the end of that (waiting for the angel) is a mischievous seemingly-magickal character calling herself Dierdre Openhouse. She's supposedly the child-like projection of an old woman who lives rough on the streets of Oxford. Who can tell if she is or not, because children lie and that's a fact. And so do old women.

WAR WORLD
Dierdre Openhouse is merely a character in a never-published short story written by the central character Lorien Howell in the 2015 novel War World by Hertzan Chimera. Dierdre Openhouse and her 'sister' Brody Belvedere play a crucial role in the climax of both War World and the competing novel Free Planet by Hertzan Chimera (2015).

So, who is Dierdre Openhouse, and does she exist outside of the narrative world of dreams? Maybe we should ask her 'sister' Brody Belvedere... another strange character who might or might not be related to Dierdre. Hell, there's every possibility that Dierdre and Brody are just refractions of light passing through the same prism. There's another possibility that Brody is another old person lying about her true identity.

We'll all find out once the DDA #1 book's done, surely.

Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age - Dreamer Worlds Lost - 9,600 to 9,500 years ago

9,600 - 9,500 B.C.
for those literally hundreds of people who've been asking me about this over the last few months, "Yes, that's the missing century..."

Have I broken the book by revealing this? Not really, you'd have found out fairly early in the story anyway, the real surprises are (of course) what was stolen along with our misplaced legacy? And will it (or they) come back to haunt us? These will most certainly NOT be cometary fragments but more 'fragments of the human dream' ... it'll all be explained in the book once it's done, some time in 2017.

A LOST CIVILISATION OF DREAMERS?
the foreword of the first Dream Detective Agency novel "...and the case of the missing century," praises the brave research of the likes of Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval and all the other invetigators of Alternative Histories and Lost ante-diluvian Societies; these Magicians of the Gods (let's call them what they really are - these con-men who made those under him do his bidding).

And by 'doing his bidding' we mean Architecture, Agriculture, Religious Worship and Meglithic Structure Building... potentially even High Technology used to cut and move multi-hundred-tonne stone blocks and craft enormous perfectly-symmetrical granite sculptures.

Here's Graham Hancock talking about the Underworld (his term) i.e. those places he contends were buried under ice-cap-freed oceans when the Great Comet/cometary fragments of 9,600 B.C. to 9,500 B.C. struck this planet ... if you think hard about this, you'll realise that' it's not all that long ago.


 

AND IF YOU ENJOYED THAT: here's part two of this series on Ancient-ancient Civilisations, from India to Japan. Of particular interest to those interested in Beaker Culture here at Stonehenge and other Neolithic sites in UK, this second part goes into the 14,000 B.C. ante-Diluvian eerily-anthropomorphic Jomon Pottery. Apparently this pottery is EVERYWHERE in Japan, suggesting that the Jomon were a lot more settled than usually accepted - otherwise how do nomadic peoples transport all their fragile pottery all over their territory? Now I want to visit the Sannai Maruyama paleolithic site in Northern Japan...
