We have been asked plenty of times, "what is the Pseudoverse? I see these amazing colorful novels could you please tell me what they are?"
"In the simplest of explanations, the Pseudoverse Series is an original world of fiction mirroring today's sociology-economic structure and technology. They contain sixteen novels driven by historical accuracy, pop culture, Easter Eggs, Music, horror, witches, heroines, robotics, artificial intelligence, Transhumanism, Fructose Products, and pseudo humans all wrapped up inside colorful cover art of real women that we are friends with. The cover models are also the main characters inside each novel. These characters jump from novel to novel so you never know who will show up in which novel. "It is a jaw-dropping, head-snapping series that you cannot put down until the very last pages are read." We didn't write that, one of our fantastic readers did in a review you can find on this website on CG Blade's page.
In order to understand the many genres of this series you would first have to familiarize yourself with the genre of 'Conspiracy Kitchen Sink'. Imagine this main genre as a mash-up of every sub-genre thrown into a blender and switched on "high". Everyone is familiar with horror, sci-fi, historical fiction, and fantasy. Obviously. However, each novel is a standalone story that also fits like a puzzle with the next novel in the series. Each novel is also homage to several different subjects such as, Books and Authors from the 1800s to the present, Films, Movie Studios, Robotics, The Atom Bomb, MKUltra, The Illuminati, Genetic Engineering, Horror, Magic, Artificial Intelligence, Pop Culture, Time Travel, Invisibility, WWIII, Singularity, Music, Colors, and the Pulp Fiction writers of the 40s and 50s. As a simple way to describe each novel we will lay out what each of these original fantastical stories are all about. Colors and music played a big part in this series with the eBooks. Studying, researching, and staring at a color wheel and albums is an excellent way to lose your mind. Fortunately, we kept each other on the straight and narrow while we laid out the plots of each of these novels back in 2011. Below, you will find a short synopsis of each novel and why it was written in a certain style. Each book has multiple plots. However, the main plot will keep flowing from novel to novel.

Note: Clicking on each cover will take you to that particular novel at Amazon. Thank you and enjoy!!! All of our novels are in eBook edition as well as Matte and Glossy paperback. The hardcover editions are available at Lulu.com. Contact US for special pricing on the entire set and individual books!!!
The multiple plots within our first thrilling novel in the Pseudoverse Series are fused with futuristic technology and genetic engineering running parallel with each other inside Cobalt until the very end. The American citizens and the military are subjugated becoming complacent by an unseen threat. Could this be a virus, biological agent, or worse, mind-control? The entire Pseudoverse Series lays out how we got to the point of artificial intelligence singularity and why. One man’s quest starts out as good intentions for one woman on the verge of death and turns into a final fight for the planet. In Cobalt, America is hijacked by the Tri-Presidents with the help of the failing United Nations. What they did not count on was an Army Officer with a unique code of quantum programming. Taking back the land she loves is going to require remarkable weapons, investigative skills, cunning, bravery, and an awful lot of Twinkies.
"Every undiscovered, unread page, of a CG Blade novel is a wild ride waiting to happen. The expansive cast of characters is as funny as they are deadly. Think "X-Files and the Twilight Zone, meet Philip K. Dick, Jane Bond, and Mrs. Emma Peel." You will never see the next event nor the ending coming at you. The cliffhangers from book to book are creative and well thought out. Each novel fits together like a giant puzzle with the pieces waiting to be tied together. Fantastic writing that only gets better with each book. These are hard to put down once you open them up and you will be thinking about them for days afterward. This is the sign of an author with a highly creative mind that carefully plots out each and every last detail." Tom P - Amazon Review
Cobalt is full of surprises anyone will enjoy, even if you are not a fan of this specific genre. Cobalt is a heart-pounding mysterious read that will have you wondering who is real, and who is not, all the way up until the very last chapter. The mystery deepens as First Lieutenant Petra Kayden Dace sets out to discover who or 'what' is behind the subjugation of the United States, the world, and its citizens. Cobalt is an action-packed thriller sure to entertain and keep you guessing until the very end. Filled with humor, hidden clues, and new technology, you will never forget this one-of-a-kind fiction mystery. Step into a world of binary political corruption as Cobalt becomes a lethal weapon in an arsenal against pure technology-based evil.
In this sequel to Cobalt, Crimson is an homage to Hammer Film Studios (Bray) in the essence of "The Studio That Dripped Blood". Crimson has the overall feel of old school horror mixed with a dash of new school science fiction. Prepare to 'stiffen' up a bit as Crimson stings her way into your connective tissue. Brought to its knees, America, and the entire planet, is on the brink of disaster, and only one thing stands in their way of completing their satanic programming. Petra is in for the fight of her life as this ever-growing evil plagues the earth. Crimson is a mind-bending action-packed science fiction novel filled with past, present, and future, historical conspiracies. This second novel in the Pseudoverse Series is a deep rich crimson soaked story with a plot that twists and turns page after page. Technologically driven, this story is one 'hell' of a ride and contains the mother of all retrofits.
“With much anticipation after reading cobalt, I have remained immersed in the twists and turns of this well written story line. I can’t recommend this series highly enough. The author CG Blade has great talent in his writing as he weaves a complex and descriptive web in their writing.” Anna M. Amazon review
“Crimson is a mind-bending action-packed science fiction novel filled with past, present, and future, historical conspiracies. This second novel in the Pseudoverse Series develops plots that twist and turn page after page. The second novel by CG Blade is awesome. It picks up where Cobalt leaves off. More "villainess'" to tend to in this action packed adventure. So many twists and turns are coming at you from all angles. Candy eating heroes and villains are incredible.” Amazon Customer
"I am the giver of the darkness, the taker of the light, the reckoning. I am the Thirty-Third SDR, poured, mixed, and programmed, to hunt hell on earth.”

Will humanity finally become STEADY? Tropa is all around us now as Heliotrope starts to take shape. Join us for one mysterious wild ride along with a child who is as cute as she is eye-opening.

We hope you enjoy this little ‘slice’ of science fiction heaven!
“I am in love with unique having been introduced to Tom Robbins by the love of my life...who left me when his moral failings were about to implode. However, I still LOVE reading Tom Robbins who uses words as no other author does and has unique characters... can of beans, spoon, and shell. Sissy Hankshaw's thumbs... If you know Robbins, you get what I am saying. Well, what CG Blade does that is unique is he breaks into some taboos. A four-year-old Pseudosynth who swears like a pirate - she is my favorite, and it is exactly for this reason. Blade takes our fears, like robots running the world, and turns it on its head, literally. He also takes a conspiracy to the next level: area 51, vaccines, technology advancements, data collecting by the government, money going digital, gene splicing, cyborgs, aliens, sex-bots, orgasms running the minds of millions, pharmaceuticals changing human nature... It really is all there, every ounce of it. There are also endless references to pop culture.” Kate D. Amazon Review
In this fourth thriller in the Pseudoverse Series novels, we take you into an ancient time and new direction. Caught between the past and the present, a young archaeologist is thrust forward into the future as a pawn in a twisted game hosted by the corrupt, the greedy, and the underworld. In this fourth novel in our Pseudoverse, the year is 2049, twenty-seven years before Cobalt. Who was the very first Pseudosynth? A detective working a case of murders become a casualty of Ray Nelson’s early work as we follow her and her partner through the wasteland of lies, cover-ups, and mummified remains. This thrilling and mysterious follow-up to Emerald will have you on the edge of your seat as we unveil who was ‘the first genetically engineered conscious being’ in this tale of Egyptian lore turned painfully bloody, and cubed.
"I have been reading much of CG Blade writings since he asked me to beta read Chrome. Being the sixth novel in the Pseudoverse series, I wanted to at least read the first novel. I am a chronically ill person, so reading is not something that happens every day, nor does writing...consequently, why my FB has gone dead. C'est la vie. I was able to get Cobalt and Crimson under my belt but sorely wish now that I could have read them all first since Onyx was slightly revealed in Chrome, and is my favorite novel for many reasons. - The ascension scene at the end of Onyx will never leave your mind or heart. I cheered and cried. These novels are entirely unique.” Kate D. Amazon review
Look to the darkened skies above as the moon moves closer to the sun. In an ever-growing eclipse, the Goddess Serket, the Scorpion Queen, is born for the first time. Onyx is one 'hell' of a ride that ends with a shocking conclusion leading to the fifth novel in the series, Heliotrope.
Once it awakens, you had better run like hell! May she have mercy on your tainted soul… Onyx is an homage to the best of all Mummy movies and books and is dedicated to Egyptian director Alex Proyas.
"The human genome is a random accident that needs an upgrade. She is going to give it to you whether you want it or not."
Artificial intelligence is a bitch, and she’s back in heat―In humanity’s last stand against extinction, one of their own will sacrifice themselves for the greater good. This non-stop cerebrum-induced novel Heliotrope: The Fifth Novel in the Pseudoverse is split into two distinct parts. First, the backstory of Heliotrope titled 'Love and Pain.' Second, 'The Trial,' in which artificial intelligence itself is put on trial for the deaths of over four-billion 'individuals.' This novel is told from the POV of several main characters who were involved one way or another with the creation of the A.I. or its ultimate downfall. For the first time, A.I. has fused with religion using it as the basis for programming its own code. Books such as The Illuminati Manuscript, The Bible, and the Necronomicon, are its fundamental base.
In this novel and the previous novels, we have used the theory of Transhumanism and taken it a step farther. You might have perceived this series as an extreme view of technology gone rogue. Heliotrope pulls all four previous novels together and explains the inference that humanity will be its own worst enemy when it comes to overseeing the technology it has created. The ‘ends to the means’ of this series are to be sarcastic as well as enlighten the reader to the coming age of Singularity with respect to hell-bent-on-revenge artificial intelligence. After all, if the technology were to become smarter than us, or overcome us, it would have to do it by force. How would a purely logical entity bypass logic to kill in the name of humanity? If we allow this to happen under our noses, we would, of course, be to blame for the mass extinction of the human race, as we now know it. DC Belga and I are pleased to bring you the fifth novel in the Pseudoverse Series, Heliotrope.
“Not being much of a "vidiot" having given up TV 10 years ago due to my health, I was worried that I would miss references to pop culture. I did miss many of them, truth be told. The fun aspect to this is that it taught me that pop culture really is a big nothing; point. It is just a reference point in history as to what was mainstream programming (think about that for a second) at any given time on the boob tube. Great thoughts are brought to light, and the characters of 2075 reacting to these same TV shows as we are viewing today shows the base nature of humanity. If you are into pop culture, you will have a blast with all that is there. Glean with a big basked, or worshipers of the TV. The heroines truly are some classy, ass-kicking Pseudosynths. I admire that Blade keeps the Heroines classy, and the opposition down and dirty, really dirty.” Kate D. Amazon Review
Heliotrope is an homage to all novels warning against the upcoming age of artificial intelligence singularity. Told from the perspective of a character from Emerald being interviewed twenty-two years later, it is a cautionary tale as A.I. is put on trial for crimes against humanity. There has never been another book quite like Heliotrope, and there never will be. “From time to time, the solder of circuits must be spilled to preserve the traces of autonomy.” - Temple Of Technology

In this sixth chilling novel in the Pseudoverse, Detective Lori Lynn Gutierrez, and former journalist Amanda Sese, both poisoned in Onyx and "recruited" by the NIB, have their work cut out for them as they are pulled into the biggest gun battle the nation has ever witnessed. An America divided is on the verge of a New Civil War over weapons that never need reloading while pushing the 2nd Amendment to its limit. Filled with brand new characters, a "Shadow Government" attempting to take control of your life, and a hypersexual ex-military Major turned mercenary at the helm, Chrome is a non-stop action-packed conspiracy you will never forget. This novel is rated ‘MA.’ It contains sex, drugs, mind-control, Taco Bell, crooked politicians, a Charger that can climb walls, a Viper with its own arsenal, great music, and a proud police detective whose partner who went from reporter to super sniper. This novel also contains words you never want to hear come out of your mother’s mouth and images your brain will never forget.
