Zachary Harper- Leviathan

Raised on a stiff diet of poetry and classics, Zachary Harper is returning to a form of literature long abandoned. Writing long poetic works, faery-tales and parables, Leviathan is his first full work that combines the lyrical voice of Samuel Coleridge with the intense story-telling of George MacDonald.

Product description:

The day Leviathan, Serpent of the Heavens, sent Death to collect Beauty's soul, the vengeful Hero is swayed to confront God himself and demand payment for the wrong done. A parable of modern man's response to the guilt and pain of death, Leviathan is an old story but retold.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Though short in length, Leviathan provides a philosophical depth many of our modern stories lacks. Like much of the classic fantasy literature, children enjoy it for its story, while adults enjoy it for its meaning.

Q: Why did you go indie?

In this day and age, there is no need to please an agent or publisher in order to release a book. Without the restrictions of more formal bonds, I am able to write what I will as I will it.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

The Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Samuel Coleridge, George MacDonald, G.K. Chesterton

Zachary Edward Harper
