Miles Beckett: The Future of Stories

Newsarama has an interview with EQAL CEO Miles Beckett, which was conducted at ComicCon. The rather lengthy interview covers everything from the early days of lonelygirl15 through Level 26.

So, there is the LG15 universe... where there is this mythology, like I said, of this blood trait – trait positive – they are positive for this trait, unnamed, that lets them live longer, and if you take the blood out of their body and put it into your body, you can live like an extra fifty years. So around the turn of the century, Aleister Crowley, the famous occultist, made this discovery. He discovered ancient Egyptian documents that some Pharaoh had discovered before him. He figured out a way to test for this blood trait and so he set up this secret society called the Order to scour the planet for these girls because they realized that if they could keep finding these rare girls, drain their blood, and put it into themselves every fifty years, they could live forever. And they created a fictional religion called the Hymn of One which is like a front for the Order. They don’t really know what they are doing but they are kind of operating on behalf of the Order.

The article can be read in its entirety here.


  1. That interview was very rambly and hard to follow.

  2. "And, like, I was writing every week for LonelyGirl 15, and then having to go back and – like, we had all this – it’s like Lost, actually – literally, we had stuff like, you know, these injections she was getting and I’m like, like aw, f***, what the hell were these injections now? I have to figure out what that was about. It was hard."

    That right there pretty much explains LG15's plot...holes.

  3. Miles your doing it all wrong *facepalm*

    I wonder if he even realises how deep down the black magic rabbit hole Crowley was. When kerrang radio planed to air a recording of a ritual he performed they had to put it off several weeks out of the listeners fear of the effects of broadcasting it xD

  4. He sounded like ValleyGirl.
