So once again, I have joined NaNoWriMo. I did it before back in 2002 as one of my yearly goals. It is not a yearly goal this year, but I didn't finish it then so this is an attempt to complete that yearly goal for 2002. Then I had no real idea or novel. This year, I do. For another yearly goal, I decided to write and publish an RPG and also do more photographic art for it but have never completed it. While looking at a theme to do photography and RPGs with, I came up with the SS because I do WW2 re-enactment and have access to WW2 uniforms and gear, and flying saucers because it was just over the top. Basically, in their expeditions to Tibet and Antarctica, the occult Nazis actually discovered things, namely an ancient alien civilization and cities where they picked up the flying saucers. From there, you move into the occult being based on the ideas of Willhelm Riech, the science on Tesla, and the reveal that there was actually something to their "master race" which is borrowed from Lovecraft. It was supposed to be an RPG, but I figure I can write a story as the game is supposed to take place in 1948 near the final clean up. I think the idea is fairly original so I thought a novel might consolidate all my IP and world of the setting and this is an attempt to get it all down on paper in a form I can show.
The following is the Introduction to the book as written by our narrator.
No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And in the twentieth century came the great disillusionment.
My apologies to H. G. Wells.
It has finally come to a time where enough of what has happened during the Second World War has been revealed that I can finally write a description of experiences. Because of my experiences in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I was inducted into a secret branch of the OSS and later the CIA. The people I worked for and with sought to investigate the strange technologies and secrets that the Axis had been using against the Allies openly ever since the London Blitz. Finally, enough material has been declassified by the various governments that not only can I describe what happened in such a way that it makes sense as well as passes the censors, but also that, additional resources exist to be cross checked and referenced so that the reader does not think that I am delusional. These words follow my adventures throughout the course of the War, the horrors discovered within, and into the years afterwards as we tracked down Hitler, the final remnants of his SS, and their alien compatriots as they sought to conceal themselves and build up again away from prying eyes.
Those were by far the most dangerous days not only for democracy, freedom and the United States of America, but also for humanity itself. Even though we now exist in a cold war with the Soviet Union and their allies after having divided up the secrets revealed to the Nazis, mankind is at least back in control of our own destiny. The threats of nuclear war and worse that now pose to us are nothing compared to the horrors that threatened us during the fight against the Axis during the Second World War. Humanity has only a glimpse of how closely we came to being extinguished in those days. Even as I describe the plight here with as utmost importance as I can give it, the true staggering magnitude of what we faced cannot truely be stated.
