The inspiration behind this book traces back to a pivotal moment in Don Edward Cook’s life. It was the spring of 2009 when he enrolled in the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, Canada, embarked on a creative endeavor that would shape his literary journey. As part of his capstone project, he produced an 11-minute short film titled “The Last Atlantean” (2009). Though the film didn’t secure accolades in festival circuits, it garnered attention on IMDb’s MovieMeter, rising to an impressive ranking among millions of films. Despite initial setbacks and a failed attempt at breaking into the film and television industries, Cook’s passion for storytelling persisted. Encouraged by his father to expand upon the themes explored in his short film, Cook delved deeper into two parallel lines of thought.

The first track of exploration led him to investigate the geophysical possibility of a global deluge, drawing inspiration from biblical accounts such as the story of Noah’s Ark. Concurrently, he delved into the mythology surrounding Atlantis, a legendary civilization believed to have met its demise in a cataclysmic flood. Merging these disparate yet thematically linked narratives, Cook embarked on a journey of speculative fiction. Drawing parallels between ancient legends and contemporary societal challenges, he crafted a narrative that served as both a cautionary tale and a reflection on the human condition. In “Ithyanna,” Cook invites readers to ponder the echoes of the past in our present reality. Through the lens of science fiction, he explores themes of societal decay, environmental peril, and the enduring quest for redemption. With a nod to literary predecessors who used speculative fiction as a vehicle for social commentary, Cook infuses “Ithyanna” with thought-provoking insights and philosophical musings. Rooted in his Christian faith and imbued with a sense of urgency, the novel transcends genre boundaries to offer a compelling narrative that resonates with readers.
