Crank is the working title of an experimental novel about the creator of a successful television show called FRAYED. The show is conceived as part LOST parody and part interdimensional esoteric A-team, and is heavily influenced by prominent conspiracy theories. It stars a team of Marines who have stumbled upon a gateway to other dimensions: Bob, the leader; Mike, the smart-alecky rebel; Lily, the hot girl; Oscar, the jive talking black guy; and Gordon, the nerd.
The creator of FRAYED slowly loses his mind over the course of creating the television show as he believes that his creations have come to life and are trying to kill him. The first four episodes of FRAYED are linked below.
EPISODE ONE: "The Bilderberg Hotel"
EPISODE TWO: "The Owls Are Not What They Seem"
EPISODE THREE: "BOHEMIAN GROVE"
EPISODE FOUR: "Apep, Set, Ma'at"
