Dasnoe Monster: A First Look?

It’s Apex Predator Thursday here at David Meyer Creations and you know what that means … another document from the ill-fated Dasnoe Expedition of 1904! This week, we get our first glimpse of the strange Dasnoe Monster that reportedly attacked Professor Joseph Dasnoe’s expedition, killing six students in the process. In other news, the first Apex Predator book, Behemoth, is coming along right on schedule. While you wait for it, why not check out my latest Cy Reed novel, Vapor?

The Dasnoe Monster: Revealed?

We’re pleased to release the third document of our Dasnoe Expedition series today. The Dasnoe Expedition was led by famed zoologist Professor Joseph Dasnoe. Back in 1904, he received permission from the Corbotch Foundation to visit northern New Hampshire’s vast—and largely unexplored—Vallerio Forest. Accompanied by numerous Highforth College faculty members and students, Dasnoe set forth on September 24, 1904. Just four days later, he was forced to cut the expedition short when six students fell prey to a pack of animals, widely reported in the media as wolves. Professor Dasnoe spent the rest of his short life trying to convince an uncaring public that the creatures who’d attacked his expedition weren’t wolves.

Rather, they were something else.

Today, we’re pleased to share the so-called “Dasnoe Monster” photograph with you. It’s the second of a two-part message Prof. Dasnoe sent to President Teddy Roosevelt roughly a month after the attack. You can find the first part here. Unfortunately, the Dasnoe Monster image, along with the accompanying text, was defaced by an unknown party shortly after being received. Please see the curator note for more information.

Our Apex Predator site is still growing. So, make sure to stop by and leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you!

Cy Reed meets Captain Jellybones

Today, we’ve got another Cryptic page for you. It’s titled, “Cy Reed meets Captain Jellybones” and reveals that the Infinity has struck a blow against Manhattan … the apparent kidnapping of eight children from some of New York’s wealthiest families. What will Cy Reed do now? In other news, have you read Vapor, Cy Reed #4, yet? If not … why not? Get your copy today!

Cy Reed meets Captain Jellybones

We’re releasing our ninth page of Cryptic today and as you’ll see soon, things are really picking up speed. Cryptic, as most of you know, is our working title for Cy’s personal journals during the time period encompassed by Chaos. This week’s entry, “Cy Reed meets Captain Jellybones,” was written after Cy first broke into New York’s closed-off subway system. It features a flyer Cy collected just outside the 51st-53rd Street station complex. As you can see below, the flyer depicts characters from Captain Jellybones, a popular Internet cartoon series. As of today, we have yet to locate the person or persons that created this flyer. However, we do know that Captain Jellybones‘ creators had nothing to do with it.

As always, enjoy! And if you need to catch up on old entries, make sure to visit the Cy Reed world.

Monster Hunter Teddy Roosevelt?

Last week, we announced our brand-new Apex Predator site and revealed the first document from the ill-fated Dasnoe Expedition of 1904. This week, we push forward with the first of two photographs, sent by Joseph Dasnoe to famed monster hunter Theodore Roosevelt. Also, while you’re waiting for Apex Predator to launch, why not check out Vapor?

Monster Hunter Teddy Roosevelt?

Over the last eighteen months, our team of dedicated researchers has been pulling together any and all documents related to the infamous Dasnoe Expedition of 1904. In the process, we’ve compiled an incredible treasure trove of old photographs, letters, and other items related to this extremely strange period of American history. And as we prepare for the upcoming launch of Behemoth, the first book in the Apex Predator series, we’re taking the opportunity to release those documents to all of you!

This week, we’re publishing the first of a two-part photographic series. We’re calling this particular photograph, “Monster Hunter Teddy Roosevelt.” It represents Joseph Dasnoe’s second attempt at luring fabled monster hunter Teddy Roosevelt into the isolated Vallerio Forest in search of mysterious—and ungodly—creatures. Incidentally, the “curator note” at the bottom of this photograph was added by our research team. It will make much more sense when we release the second photo of this mini-series.

Our Apex Predator site is still growing. But make sure to stop by and leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you!

Cy Reed Visits ShadowFire HQ

You’ll find the latest edition of Cryptic, “Cy Reed Visits ShadowFire HQ,” below. Cryptic, as a brief reminder, is our working title for Cy’s personal journals during the time period encompassed by Chaos. This week’s entry begins shortly after Cy exits ShadowFire HQ. Much has changed … for one thing, he’s been saddled with Beverly Ginger for a partner. As most of you know, this marks a major turning point in Cy’s life, although he didn’t know it at the time. More importantly, Cy comes across a brand new symbol, not far from Diane Blair’s apartment. Freshly painted and ominous, it hints at dark times ahead, both for him as well as for the children of Manhattan. As always, enjoy!

The Dasnoe Letter: Welcome to Apex Predator!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Apex Predator site! Behemoth, the first book in the Apex Predator world, is still in production. But in the meantime, we’d like to whet your appetites with a little taste of our newest acquisition, a treasure trove of letters, photos, and other items straight from the ill-fated Dasnoe Expedition of 1904. First up … the infamous Dasnoe Letter, reporting on the existence of ungodly creatures in the mysterious Vallerio Forest! And on a side note, have you bought Vapor yet?

The Dasnoe Letter

As I mentioned earlier, today marks the official launch of our Apex Predator site. Apex Predator’s origins lie in the private—and gated—Vallerio Forest. As some of you already know, famous zoologist Professor Joseph Dasnoe led a well-known expedition—reporters of the time compared it to the Lewis & Clark expedition—to the Vallerio in 1904. The expedition ended in awful tragedy and Professor Dasnoe spent the rest of his rather short life working to destroy the Vallerio and everything in it. Today’s document, the recently-restored Dasnoe Letter (Professor Dasnoe’s first letter to then-President Theodore Roosevelt) hints at the ungodly creatures that once inhabited the Vallerio. You can read the Dasnoe Letter below.

At the moment, the Apex Predator site is pretty bare. Expect that to change as we head toward Behemoth’s launch date. So, stick around … there’s lots to come!

Cy Reed Battles Ryan Standish

In this week’s edition of Cryptic, Cy Reed battles Ryan Standish! Plus, Cy experiences a dark premonition. And have you bought Vapor yet?

Cy Reed Battles Ryan Standish

Below, you’ll find the latest edition of Cryptic, the working title for Cy’s personal journals during the time period encompassed by Chaos. The title, “Cy Reed Battles Ryan Standish,” is a bit of a misnomer. This particular entry was written just after Cy and Ryan faced off at the Explorer’s Society. It also features Cy’s second character sketch, after Diane Blair. In addition, it mentions the Infinity as well as an interesting statement, that appears to be a very dark premonition. As I’ve mentioned before, I haven’t had a chance to peruse Cy’s entire journal yet. So, I have no idea what happened between him and the Infinity while he was in New York. But from what I hear, we’ll know soon. That’s all for now. If you need to catch up on old entries, make sure to visit the Cy Reed world.

Bought Vapor?

Vapor, the fourth novel in the Cy Reed Adventure series, is officially on-sale! Thanks to all of you early purchasers, it’s currently sitting at #8 on the Pulp Best Sellers list and #14 on the Men’s Adventure list. It’s also the #2 Hot New Release in the Pulp category.

Cy Reed Encounters Diane Blair

In “Cy Reed Encounters Diane Blair,” Cy attends an anti-treasure hunting speech given by former love, Diane Blair. But it’s not that simple. Especially since it’s been three years since he last saw her.

Cy Reed Encounters Diane Blair

This is Week 6 of Cryptic, our title for Cy’s personal journals during the time period encompassed by Chaos. I’ve entitled this entry, “Cy Reed Encounters Diane Blair.” Not the most exciting name, to be sure. But looks can be deceiving, especially since Cy and Diane were once very close. It ends abruptly and I’m sure many of you know the reason for that! Plus, our first character sketch—Diane—is revealed! No news on the Infinity this week but according to Cy, Diane will feature prominently in this adventure. You can read it below. And if you need to catch up on old entries, make sure to visit my Cy Reed world.

David Meyer Creations

The name change is still in progress! But lots of new updates. Starting off, I completely reworked the home page, the Cy Reed page, and the About page.

So, why the new name? Although I write books, I don’t see myself as an author. Rather, I view myself as a storyteller, capable of working in multiple mediums. David Meyer Creations reflects the fact that I’ll continue to write novels. But I also hope to branch off into new and exciting areas. Cryptic, is my first effort in this direction. In the future, I hope to take my characters and universes into graphic novels, films, and video games. Anything and everything is on the table!

Ready for Vapor?

Vapor, the fourth novel in the Cy Reed Adventure series, is done! I expect to begin the publishing process very soon. Keep an eye out for it … I think all of you are really going to like this one!

I’ll announce it officially later this week but if you want the preview, you can see it at the Cy Reed world page.

David Meyer Creations

My web presence has undergone about a dozen name changes over the years so get ready for one more …David Meyer Creations. I bought the domain last week. It’s rather long, but it’s a better reflection of what I’m trying to do here, namely build a number of exciting worlds for you to enjoy! Currently, I’m running two worlds … Cy Reed and Guerrilla Explorer. Apex Predator, my newest world, is next!

Apex Predator

Speaking of Apex Predator, I’m excited to offer the first teaser for this strange and terrifying world. You can see it first here. More is coming soon!

Vapor

Vapor, the fourth novel in the Cy Reed Adventure series, is still undergoing final edits. The cover is done and the formatting is largely complete. I’m still hoping to get the book into your hands this week, but it might get delayed a week or two depending on how final edits go. Again, no promises, but we’re working very hard to get this done and into your hands!

Cy Reed Investigates Infinity Prophecy

This week, we look at Cy Reed Investigates Infinity Prophecy, the fourth page from Cy Reed’s journal. Get ready to learn some intriguing clues about the Infinity, which appears to have been plaguing Manhattan since the sixteenth century. Plus, more website updates and the countdown to Vapor continues!

Cy Reed Investigates Infinity Prophecy

I’m pleased to release page 4 of Cy Reed’s journal, which I’ve entitled, Cy Reed Investigates Infinity Prophecy. As you’ll see below, Cy Reed Investigates Infinity Prophecy is a continuation of last weeks’ entry. It’s the second half of a newspaper article from 1916. It provides some curious details about the Infinity as well as about the long-forgotten and mysterious disappearance of eight Manhattan-based children. I don’t want to give too much away, so go read it for yourself! And if you need to catch up on old entries, make sure to catch out my Cy Reed world. By the way, I’ve tentatively titled this edition of Cy Reed’s journal as Cryptic. At the moment, I’m adding page numbers and going through the process of reformatting old pages. Eventually, I’ll publish this story as a Cy Reed Journal paperback book and maybe an e-book for those of you who prefer hard copies or e-readers.

David Meyer Creations

I’m currently refocusing this website around the various worlds of what I’m currently calling, David Meyer Creations. That name, by the way, changes on a week-to-week basis! Anyway this week’s updates include general speed improvements to the blog page. Also, I’m rebuilding the front page to focus less on my individual books and more on my worlds, namely Cy Reed, Guerrilla Explorer, and the upcoming Apex Predator.

Vapor

Vapor, the fourth novel in the Cy Reed Adventure series, is currently undergoing final edits. I’m hoping to get the e-book into your hands the week of April 6. The paperback shouldn’t take much longer. No promises, but I’m working hard to make it happen.
