SOLY: Part Three: Chaoskampf
The Germans have a lot of great words with no real English equivalent. One of them is ChaosKampf. It means, so I’m told, ‘struggle against chaos’ and it sums up the hero’s battle against a chaotic monster often represented as a dragon or serpent.
“Lo: thy dread empire, Chaos, is restored;
Light dies before thy uncreating word:
Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall;
And universal darkness buries all.”
–Alexander Pope, The Dunciad
In the case of “Someone Liche You,” my novel being experimentally published in serial at RedLemona.de, it refers to Kevin Adderly’s flight across a dead city in search of his zombie girlfriend’s mom. Thus is where chapter 3.1 begins.
