Ong’s Hat FAQ
I have a review/interview section here, but some people have expressed being overwhelmed with the number of links on that page. Admittedly, it is a lot, and I am overwhelmed at the prospect of organizing and categorizing this batch of links. So, until I get around to doing that unenviable organizational grunt work I have put together a FAQ.
Hopefully, this will serve as a quick, easy-to-digest, and concise resource for people who want to know what the Ong’s Hat ARG was. As you might be able to tell, I am tired of talking about, arguing about, and listening to endless speculation about a project I started over 30 years ago and concluded over 20 years ago. I’m on to new projects, and I will no longer conduct interviews about this subject.
Statio Numero Now In Pre-production Phase
As I mentioned in a previous email, I have completed writing Statio Numero, and Statio is moving along in the pre-production phase. It is now officially copyrighted and registered with WGA. I will be announcing casting calls sometime in the next few months.
A bit of a teaser here- The three parts of the complete trilogy contain a cipher, in three parts. Once uncovered and deciphered the message must be interpreted correctly, which in turn will divulge GPS coordinates to a geocache. There will be several items in the cache, among them, a bag holding 100 troy ounces of silver. (pictured below)
Also included in this and other secondary geocaches (the continental US only, sorry) will be several signed first editions of a few of my books, etc. This should kick off in late 2023 with the release of the full interdisciplinary version of Statio Numero. I want my last public media piece to be memorable.
I hope you all are doing well.
