About Author:

DuncanSmith

I write music novels books that have their own soundtrack albums Here s how that began A few years ago I wrote a book called The Vortex Winder Then my rock band, Lighthouse XIII, wrote an album of the same name, in which all the songs fitted into the story It ended up like a film musical, but with a book instead of a film This continued with the sequel, The Maelstrom Ascendant and the new book Cultown unrelated to the others I now have three novels, each with their own original rock soundtrack album As for literary genre, my novels have been linked to the following psychological thriller, music, philosophical, adventure, and magic realism My books don t fit neatly into one genre, and that s fine it s fun to mix things up.The music for the books is recorded by my band, Lighthouse XIII We have four albums, which are available as CDs and in digital form The video on this page is for a song called Moonlight Tiger which is a song off the Maelstrom Ascendant album.I live in Sydney and love music, books, and most types of popular culture I try to make sense of the strangeness of life in my Sparks blog , which will have a new entry each week in 2017 If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through , or through my own website vortexwinder,com



Comments Cultown

    A really good read. I was a bit dubious at first, I don't know why but the story line didn't seem to be what I would normally read. A friend recommended it to me.I really enjoyed it! It was an unusual story but was one of those books that you pick up and just have to keep reading.Totally recommend it, the character of Thomas Swan is great, hate him or like him!What can I say, buy it and read it.

    In a famous Seinfeld scene, George Constanza givesout a key piece of advice "You know, Jerry, it's not a lie if you believe it" This could be the motto of Thomas Swan in Cultown, when he forms his group Milinish. When his weird theories catch on, he finds out he can convince others best if he first convinces himself. Before long, he believes every word he says, no matter what. "It's not a lie if you believe it" I don't read much fiction but I'll give this four stars and one more for the music, w [...]

    This was a very interesting and enjoyable book. Interesting in that it is about a Cult and more so as it's told from the point of view of the cult leader.The book details how the cult starts more by chance than by plan and how it and cults in general can grow. The premise of a cult seems unlikely but when you read how events start to steamroll you can see how such things start and grow.What also makes this book different is that it comes with an accompanying CD which has some great music. The so [...]

    I received my copy of Cultown as a giveaway. Initially I found the story quite humorous but the further I read the more I realised this book was not for me. Once the cult moved to Cull in the US I found it hard going. I failed to complete reading it. Maybe I will reread it at a later date!I'm sure this style pleases lots of readers.

    A strange book about people swept up in a religious craze. Thomas Swan comes up with a new doctrine every few chapters, each one weirder than the last. I like the way the author doesn’t let on whether or not Swan believes his own bullshit. We don’t ever find out what he’s really thinking. For instance, we never hear him say: “I can’t believe they’re buying this!” When Swan was penning the extract from Milinish in the New Age, we never hear or see him laughing at what he’s writing [...]

    Cultown was a really good read. It grabs your interest from the start and then takes you on a fast paced journey into the world of cults.I like that Duncan Smith looks at the idea that both religion and science can have cult type followings.This is the 3rd book of Smith's that I've read, starting with the Vortex Winder and then the Maelstrom Ascendant. I like this one the best of all three.The soundtrack from Smith's band, Lighthouse XIII, is also worth listening to. An enjoyable read on a curre [...]
