What if Stanley Kubrick left behind more than just his classic films? What if he also left behind an elaborate puzzle cleverly buried within his films, which would lead the player toward a treasure th... at could change the course of human history? GOLD MEDAL WINNER: Reader's Favorite Book Awards 2017: Best Fiction Audiobook WINNER: National Indie Excellence Awards 2017: Movies & TV Category A thrilling page-turner, thrilled with mystery and puzzles designed by a cinematic genius. Jennifer Bosworth, Author of Struck and The Killing Jar [Puzzle Adventure, Suspense/Thriller, Film/Movies, Conspiracy] Fifteen years after his death in March 1999, Stanley Kubrick has apparently arranged a hand-selected announcement that his films are far more than they appear to be. As UCLA's resident Kubrick expert, Professor Mascaro was the recipient of Kubrick's package. Inside is a reproduction of the famous photo Kubrick took for the cover of Look Magazine following the death of FDR. The image to the right has become emblazoned in the American zeitgeist. On the back of the photo is a message written by Kubrick that reads: Follow me to Q's identity. Mascaro is stumped and asks Shawn Hagan, his brilliant but socially awkward film student, what he thinks that might mean. Shawn takes the photo and studies it with his only two friends at school-Wilson Devereaux, an infamous former child star bent on becoming a respected director, and Samira Sami Singh, a graduate film student with a dark, rebellious past. The friends initially come up empty, but upon discovering a missing piece of the puzzle Mascaro strangely decided not to reveal at first, Shawn realizes that the answer to Q's identity is hidden within the dialogue and imagery of the first film Kubrick had complete control over- Lolita. The clues lead the friends to an old hotel in New York, where a mysterious package has been held by the concierge for twenty years. The package contains the next clue in the puzzle as well as a filmed message from Kubrick himself that confirms the construct of the elaborate game. Unfortunately, the friends also learn that at least two other groups have recently uncovered this first part of the puzzle, which puts them a step behind. By the end, Kubrick will have proven his genius to be unmatched, when the game takes the player far beyond the boundaries of reality and sends him into the darkest realms of the human mind in order to make it to the final stage. This climactic set piece is surely the most difficult and diabolical puzzle ever created by man. Shawn will have to face his own demons and reconnect with those who care about him in order to receive the great treasure that is Kubrick's final legacy and gift to humanity. Like Kubrick's films, this book dazzles. A fascinating mind-bender that any movie fan will geek out for. EJ Altbacker, Author of Shark Wars and Handy Andy Saves the World KUBRICK'S GAME by Derek Taylor Kent Evolved Publishing presents a mind-blowing, often comedic, sometimes tragic, always entertaining look at an extraordinary What If? adventure.
