Duth Olec

Biography

Ridiculous author trying to write funny things that make you think, "I want to read more of this." A creator of bizarre worlds, creatures, characters, and ideas (I think that nails down all the noun categories) in the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos, another universe without an Earth. For that reason it is some type of Science Fantasy setting where things happen that probably don't on the Earth we live on. As I like to say, I want to be a professional author and then be unprofessional about it.
In the context of the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos I, Duth Olec, left Earth for several reasons, kidnapped- errr, I mean, picked up a narrator by the name of Wally Plotch from his previous employer as it crumbled, and put him to work writing down these events.
In the context of Earth, that hasn't happened yet.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am always working on what is next! I guess this should be obvious, there's not much of a reason to work on what you've already finished. As of right now I am working on Darmenzi, a book that takes place one year after my first, Slubes. This is mentioned briefly at the end of Slubes; I don't want to give away too much regarding that novel, but in Darmenzi more than one problem shows up at once, and things get worse and then there's a giant fire bird and a wind dragon and oh my goodness the chaos. As it turns out, the prog (in-progress) version of this can be read on my website! While I suggest Slubes is read first, I've striven to make Darmenzi comprehensible without reading it first. https://dutholeccuckooland.wordpress.com/cloudy-cuckoo-cosmos/novels/darmenzi/
Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Pratchett is definitely a favorite. Well, was. *sad* I've aaalmost read every Discworld novel. They're funny, thought-provoking, and British, which I have been told I have a humor akin to. Gee, I wonder why??
Ryan North, while primarily known for comics, has also done a few novel-type things that always turn out hilarious. While not a traditional style of author, we don't live in traditional times anymore. Internet!
I've also got to admire Salman Rushdie for not being afraid to write passionately and unapologetically?
Finally, because I'm weird, another who is technically a creator of a comic: Andrew Hussie. Although what he makes kind of transcends comics at some point. He's weird and ridiculous, something I strive for in my life and writing.
