...was something I did out of necessity. Posting about evil, demons, devils, and the entire demonic realm etc. I've learned by now is not good for my health. I really feel this stuff because I know what it feels like, so of course it does not feel good, but anyone who is serious about the entire spectrum beyond the physical universe can go ahead and read the book: The Devil's Canyon by Mark Price.

Needless to say, it's not a feel good tale; it's the devil's canyon for christ's sake; and it was the real deal. If I was into self promotion, I would post the Writer's Digest review, but that's not what this is about. This is about the one person who might truly understand all of it, or most of it. Some people understand parts...if someone does read it and thinks they understood, then send me a PM because I would be very surprised.

So I'm putting this out there as sort of a hail mary challenge with very little hope for success. But mostly because I feel like I keep repeating myself for deaf ears at this point in the forums. I mean you gotta really want to know the truth before someone can tell it to you with any real hope of understanding (available at amazon-dot-com etc.).

Good luck, and good night.

Whenever i see the title of the book, i keep seeing "The Devil's Crayon".  :P

So, what you're saying is that the book is the truth.

I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

Eighteen years in that god forsaken canyon. I have been accused of using crayons for the cover art, and they were part right. I mixed a few crayons with acrylic when I first moved there. I had no idea about the entity or the symbolism at the time. To answer your question: fictionalized to protect the guilty.

I will have to pick this up, I love to read when in my travles, it makes the time go by. I also like to be "In the Know" if you know what I mean.

I think people should network more with thier information, as to keep it to themselves. But that's just me....

Sounds like a good read. Whether I believe it or not will have to wait till I've read it. Sadly, I don't have the 10 to spare for it just now. I'll see if the library has a copy though.

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

Yeah, you could ask a library to get a copy and then check it out. One person read the whole thing in a single five hour sitting (have coffee or alcohol handy). It's much time condensed with minimal descriptions (I got criticized for that).

THANKS, I like to think of it as badass and essential. I walked away from my Hollywood connections decades ago(actually North Hollywood), but if there is an aspiring producer/director out there: think Jeremiah Johnson/One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest/The shining/The Exorcist/ETC. and you got the idea...

You own the rights...can you publish it on-line? I'd like to read it.

This sounds interesting, I'll try and see if I can find it at my local library.

"All I say is that I think it is damned unlikely that anything like a central cosmic will, a spirit world, or an eternal survival of personality exist. They are the most preposterous and unjustified of all the guesses which can be made about the universe, and I am not enough of a hair-splitter to pretend that I don't regard them as arrant and negligible moonshine. In theory I am an agnostic, but pending the appearance of radical evidence I must be classed, practically and provisionally, as an atheist." ~ H.P. Lovecraft

I'm not sure I understand why people don't actually like to own the physical book anymore. I'm reading Clive Barker's Mister B. Gone at the moment and could never imagine reading that on a computer screen. My book is sort of like that: a kind of possessed entity--The Devil's Canyon being that physical entity. Harmless to read about yet it does exist. But there is much more to it than that of course...

It's all going Kindle and books on mobile phones! I have a few books on my mobile, but you can only read a 'text' portion at a time, which is annoying as your finger gets sore from scrolling down constantly. But... that's the future Mister Price.

By the way, everyone, Mark's book is worth a look in ! Grab a copy if you can.

Simply because it's not available in all countries, I check out Amazon and I can't get it. ;)
