Be intrigued, be very intrigued. The Moogh will have you laughing, crying, and above all intrigued!

Lane has created a fantasy world that somehow remains tethered to real life. Real life is the quagmire of our existing failing capitalist and communist socio-economic and political systems that deplete our natural capital and unsustainably skew scarce resources into the hands of a small percentage of the global population.

The fantasy is the antidote, that longed for utopia of the long future where human beings are 'in sync' with their environment and fat bees are numerous!

What is the the Moogh? Well I won't give the game away, because that's where the intrigue lies. As our adventurous odd couple Sperrin and Tarp track and report on local events which shape the world, we are reminded of Local Agenda 21s - 'think local, act global'.

The events they experience play out across the globe, they are our eyes and ears as we welcome the literal greening of the planet - but I've said too much already. Get your copy of The Moogh to unravel the deceit to get to the truth. The truth will out - and so will the Moogh.

Maybe the Moogh’s young heroine, Maggie Tarp, is a barbed reference to the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the American Government initiative to transfer US$700 billion of public money into the hands of the greedy, elitist bankers who caused the GFC. I wouldn’t be surprised, because Guy Lane’s fiction writing shows him to be a cerebral world-watcher who tells a simple story as a way of communicating the complexity of today’s 'fractious' world.

The moogh was a real romp in a very believable future for me. The themes were entirely relevant to modern times but the real appeal was the cheeky, irreverent way in which such societal catastrophe could occur. I think the Moogh demonstrated our disconnect from reality and our utter inability as a society to come to terms with a manipulative media and our own shallow needs. It was a satirical and often poignant reflection on humankinds inability to blend our consumer society, our ecological ignorance and our basic desire to strive for a greater good. It's so nice to be reminded of these inadequacies as well as our potential - thanks guy lane.

The Moogh is like the Lorax for grown ups. For me the hidden take away is that we need to not only plant the seeds, we have to invent them!!!

The Moogh is an easy, fast paced novella with a serious message about the state of our planet and the life on it that is slowly being extinguished by the actions of one particular species. The plots take the reader through many of the business and lifestyle behaviours that are sometimes knowingly destroying nature and disrupting society for profit, but also touches on many that unknowingly contribute to the decline of nature and society. Highly recommended for anyone looking for good fiction with a message.

The Moogh is a wonderful and interesting character, with his appearance he can help to improve the people's consciousness about our environment and nature. Just with his present and exotic looking occur, people show attention and follow their natural curiosity to experience the Moogh. With his positive influence to the humans it is a fantastic symbol for all life which surround us and it should be handled mindful and respectful. If we take a closer look and time to explore deeper the micro and the macro from our unique beautiful nature, than we understand the message from the Moogh.
