My Untitled Novel Project, Part 1

The Time: Now
The Place: The Kremlin

Vladimir Putin has assembled all of his most trusted Communist Party leaders. Standing at the head of a long conference table, Putin dims the lights as a video screen blinks to life behind him. On it is a map of Europe. He leans forward.

“Thank you all for coming here on such short notice.”

The others smile small, tight smiles. Some nod, others simply look straight ahead. They were all summoned out of their beds mere minutes ago.

“As you know, it is our Russian destiny to put our stamp on the world.” As he speaks, the Russian hammer and sickle appears on the view screen above every European capital. “What most of you don’t know is that our destiny is now. It begins tonight.”

The assembled men shift slightly in their seats, glancing at each other out of the corners of their eyes, careful to maintain the smiles on their faces. None want to appear disloyal.

Putin pauses. He looks at each of the men, mentally cataloging which he can trust and which will “disappear” this night. After a deliberately long silence, he gestures to the screen.

“And this is how our dominion begins.”

The picture on the screen changes, dissolving into recent news footage. Now the smiles of the men fade. They openly stare at each other. They have seen the news footage before. It is from a recent Japanese tragedy, and all of them are afraid of what it may mean. Of what Putin may mean.

“This, comrades, this is how we will rule the world!” Putin presses a button, and the video freezes, with one single, terrifying image lighting the darkened room. It is reflected in the glasses of the other men, on their shiny medals, and in their fear-struck eyes.

It is Godzilla.


Hey, what do you think? Is this a winner or what? Didn’t that have you on the edge of your seat? I don’t want to give too much away, but crazy ol’ Putin has found a way to control Godzilla, and he going to use him to destroy the world. Will he succeed? Can he be stopped? And what the heck do Gummy Bears have to do with it? You’ll just have to wait and find out!

(It might be a long wait. That’s all I wrote.)


He’s a bad man!

    Samuel L. Jackson would be good in this. Or Liam Neeson. Or both. I say this because they’re 2 of my favorite actors who can make almost any film great just by appearing on the set. Even though both of them DID appear in the Star Wars prequels – But I can forgive that.

      I think they are both great actors and I’m fans of them both. I say Samuel L. Jackson plays Putin and Liam Neeson plays Godzilla.

        ” Say ‘ what ? ‘ again, tovarisch, say ‘ what ‘ again ! “. I saw the scene in ” The Deep Blue ” where the shark eats him, & I half – expected him to rip the shark open. 🙂
        Liam Neeson – The very 1st thing I saw him in was ” Darkman “. Only he could bring the tormented, genius scientist to life. They tried Arnold Vosloo, & I wasn’t really sold.

          I’ve never seen Darkman. I keep saying I will but I just haven’t done it.

    This deserves some serious attention. I think Paris Hilton should make a cameo appearance when she is kidnapped from a Moscow hotel and her brain is transplanted into Godzilla and reprogrammed by a mad Russian scientist played by Val Kilmer. Watch this space!

      I think that’s an amazing plot but I wonder if audiences would believe that Paris Hilton’s brain would power a lightbulb, never mind Godzilla.

        What about Miley Cyrus ? Oh, that’s right, she has her own storyline, ” The Invisible Talent ” / ” The Incredible Shrinking Public Presence “. 🙂 Count our blessings.

          I really dislike her.

            Join a very LARGE fraternity. I’d rather ** drink ** lunch with Charlie Sheen AND David Hasselhoff then spend an hour with her. My uncle & aunt knew Billy Ray. He’s riding Miley’s coat – tails, what’s left of them.


            • bmj2k August 9, 2015 at 3:49 am #

              OK, lunch with the Hoff is a must do before I die! I remember some years ago, when Miley was just breaking out of her Disney show, you could already tell she was on the wrong path and that she’s end up bad. I read in more than one place that not only was Billy Ray using her to get his career going (lot of good that did) but if he was any kind of real father he’d be stopping a lot of her behavior. He’s not in Dina Lohan territory, but he’s no good.

                He blames the Devil & Hollywood for his dodgy parenting when he just needs to take a look in the mirror.
                I’ll tell David Hasselhoff you’ll be out there.
                BTW , I think Sheen – Hasselhoff would make a great reality show.

        Yes, that is a potential flaw. Maybe you can have a nod to Frankenstein and they were supposed to use Schwarteneggers brain because Putin like Kim Jong Il is a closet Terminator fan but the KGB messed up and got Paris Hilton’s by mistake,

        I’m only putting in these Hollywood types because (1) you need that to sell it to the masses and (2) its’ not too early to be thinking about the movie version.

        PS–Let me know when you the schedule that lunch–would love to join you!

          I like this brainstorming! And while I’m thinking of Hollywood, how about the title Godzilla Star Wars Episode IV: A New Godzilla Hope. I think that’ll grab some attention.


          • T E Stazyk August 9, 2015 at 2:54 pm #

            I’ve been thinking about a title and you nailed it! Of course you’ve made a lot more work for yourself because now with the Star Wars link you have a whole new cast and plot line to weave in-infinitely into the past and future!

            But it opens a lot more possibilities. Like instead of Godzilla being spawned by radioactive waste in the ocean he could be the result of a prequel incident that will be covered in “The Princess Leia Memoirs: Chapter 69–Me and Jabba the Hut–The Real Story.”

              That’s good. Really good. And what if some freedom fighters from the future send Terminators back in time to stop Putin before he uses his Dark Jedi powers to take over Alderaan?

                I think it’s time to Crowdfund this idea!
