Robert Mitchellabout this book: The remote central north of Western Australia is a lonely place, unvisited. I don’t know where the idea came from, but it appeared in my mind and I built on it. There had been rumours of a race of white-skinned people in the far desert outback. There were rumours of Harold Lasseter’s famed gold reef, found in 1929, and lost again, and there were other rumours. I started writing during our first year in China in 2003, the first year of teaching conversational English to middle-school students. I continued writing for two more years, and dreaming, and finding new ideas, ideas relating to lasers reflected from the sun through magnificent diamonds, lasers used to power the lost city. And there were the vast amounts of gold used by the Khilioi. The reef which Lasseter had found had never been lost. And then the Deka were created in my mind, the lords of the Khilioi, the ones holding absolute power over all others, the Deka with their strange ability to be able to read the thoughts of the people, and able to control those thoughts. It’s a thriller. It’s science fiction, in a way. But it’s a great adventure and, who knows, perhaps it really is based on reality, perhaps there is a lost civilization somewhere out past the back of beyond, waiting and hoping that it will never be found.
