Only to them was given the gift to plow the flesh that spread out all over the earth, with the implacable iron of their thoughts... and yawn before the ephemeral harvest of their rotten desires.
Gloomy workmen of the most sinister prophecies, those that sow hunger in the imagination to know what will bloom beyond the end, and the dark decision to journey toward that end.
Some of them, are patient prisoners of the paradise's light; projected through the fragile consciences in spiral of blood, held by pillars of dying flesh. Skillful and quiet, they avoid the enervated souls of the light: shallow essences, that get satisfied with any paradise; and fear any hell. Determined, they are not afraid to drain their inner cup, and lost themselves in the rapture of their being.
Everything evolve. The universe, its laws, the light, the darkness, the good, the evil, the human being. And everything can does it, thanks to the faculty of the imagination. But the imagination it's something hidden and needs to be explore by the creative beings, no matter if they are humans, angels, demons or gods. The greatest field of the imagination is the Dark Energy. That's why the Dark Energy not only expand the universe, but the imagination too.
My literature is my personal exploration through the Dark Energy of my imagination that runs parallel to the cosmic Dark Energy that push forward the universe. Of course, always keeping in mind, that the mystery is more important than the revelation. In that way, each one of my prose poems, stories or thoughts, it's a thin ray of light out of that infinite mystery, of that infinite Evolutionary Darkness.
And the revelation in the light's showcase of that tiny part of it, only makes it more mysterious, more dark.
- Odilius Vlak
- Odilius Vlak, is the pseudonym of a guy whose real name is Juan Julio Ovando Pujols. He was born and still lives in Dominican Republic. The pen name turned out to be his spiritual name, because it was chosen by his soul, and not by two pieces of rotten flesh, namely, his parents. As a writer he likes to explore the dark aspect of the imagination and place the result in the light's showcase with a fantastic attire. So far, his main way of expression is the prose poem. Some may be very lyric; others, very narrative. But, all of them being a kind of philosophic declaration of why the Dark Fantasy should be loved. He has two unpublished books, of which several samples will be show in this virtual temple: Plexus Lunaris and Bottonless Tombs. Currently he's writing the first story of the book "Chronicles of Tandrel". It will be a universe builded in the same way that "Zothique the Last Continent", by Clark Ashton Smith; that is, showing the whole feature of it, through a series of tales. He also run a Blog in spanish devoted in part to the sacred figure of Clark Ashton smith: the «High Priest» of the Dark Fantasy.
