An encyclopaedic novel of the magic and mythology of our time

Confessions of the Gods

Author: David Seals

Publisher: Moonlit Press

Category: Novel   Level: Advanced


"The definitive story of what Roswell and the UFOs are really about, in 550 intensive pages of mythology, history, and personal memoir. It's all still very hard to believe, but that's probably what the whole thing is really all about. Seals is convincing, if hard to follow sometimes, in his erudite information packed into the thrilling personal ordeal of his family. This large and difficult work takes the whole Roswell Mystery into a brand-new and very exciting level."
NY Times, Sunday book review section

CONFESSIONS - "Autobiography regarded as a form of prose fiction; or prose fiction cast in the form of autobiography."

ENCYCLOPAEDIC FORM - "A genre presenting an anagogic form of symbolism, such as a sacred scripture, or its analogues in other modes. The term includes the Bible, Dante's Commedia, the great epics, and the works of Joyce and Proust."
- Dr. Northrup Frye, 'Anatomy of Criticism'

"Powerful and poignant, 'Confessions of the Gods' is a heartrending literary treat."
- Dominique Sessions, Apex Reviews

"David O'Brien Seals is the best classical mythographer and poet since Robert Graves and Gore Vidal."
- The Paris Review

Other Works by Seals include the novels 'The Libyad', 'Sweet Medicine' and 'The Powwow Highway' {which was made into a 1987 feature film by George Harrison's Handmade Films} -

"'Sweet Medicine' is a comic masterpiece."
- Booklist

"'The Powwow Highway' is irresistible, inspired, and deeply satisfying."
- Los Angeles Times

"'The Libyad' - Daring and dangerous scholarship of Judeo-Christian-Muslim religions and their relationship to the original Biblical histories, told with an erudite pagan imagination. Highly recommended for the adventurous of heart."
- Alexandria University Press

People have been trying to destroy the Sacred Peaks at Flagstaff for centuries, with the railroad, Riordan family loggers, Babbitt family merchants, miners, cowboys overgrazing the public lands like their own private pastures for the hooved locusts of cattle, and now tourists and skiers, racists who want to get rid of all Hispanics like they tried with Apaches or Navajoes, but Mother Earth is retaliating against them. She is burning away a lot of the worthless Forest Service exploitation of the Peaks in 4 huge fires at the summer solstice, circling the town. People build roads and campfires and biker businesses, and then cry they're losing their adolescent playgrounds to the fires they started in the first place,

There's a brief excerpt about the Iroquois/Huron 'Alliance of Peace' Konsonionnwe and the Prophet Deganawidah, from my unpublished 1995 verse history 'Armorica'; short blank verse excerpt from the 2000 verse-novel 'The Libyad' about a Jihadi peace-warrior from Libya imprisoned in America as a terrorist.

Major section with 11 chapter-length, epic narratives in 10-syllable blank verse 'The War in Heaven', from 'The Creation Myth', detailing the gods and goddesses of today trying to deal with the human destruction of Mother Earth:

"The Void, " God said, "was not my father's fault.
Neither is it philosophy, Athene, my darling girl,
nor particularly evolutionary the Species Merger.
Cronos must pardoned be, if ever we're to win,
and mankind reduced in pride to its former place
in animal status equal to the kingdom of Plants.
No, I see your astonishment and hear your cries
for merciless war as heretofore we waged of Old,
and I understand. Forgiveness will not come soon.
But come it must if ever reconciliation arrive
in heaven and on earth, begun unavoidably
long before there was The Beginning without end,
ere even of gods unthought were We
or It we call Evil and Good themselves. Yes.
'Tis vain for us to say immortal even are We,
or I, or You my children conceived in liberty.
Yes, I'm not so great to know a circle's ending.
I'm not so wise to judge Disobedience's beginning
in the Infinitude of an animate Wheel Immanent.
Are you? Is Cronos, whom we like to label Satanic?
Not I. Oh no. Defeat in many things has proven me
unproven invincibility, unconvincing, poetic grammar.
Doubtless I am not, but vulnerable to learning, yes.
Grandmother, I love you wherever you are, desirous
of growth, willing to fail, yearning Beauty."

The complex collection continues with another long, rhymed paean 'Mountain of the Dead', about how good pagans can take over the Sacred Flagstaff bioregion in Arizona and return the land free and peaceful as Mother Earth always wanted it. It is the solution and alternative for a better, ethical civilization that John Lennon prayed for in his song 'Revolution', and which the BIBLE FASCISTS continue to pray - for destruction of the Earth - in their churches.



Author's Notes:

As a Memoir and Philosophy of the Pagan, this is a 554 page 'encyclopedic appendix in prose narrative; formerly titled ' The Hymnodies of Thoth: Slayer of Argus, Healer of Death', covering my personal birth and involvement at Roswell especially, and the arrival of the gods in the 1940s to combat the daemonic forces trying to destroy our beautiful Earth.
