Former Subud member Sahlan Diver's first novel, The Secret Resort Of Nostalgia, shortlisted for the international Yeovil Literary Festival 2017, has now been published. The novel makes a number of references to Subud, though not by name, and the key idea promoted in the book, the idea of enterprise in the service of humanity, owes a debt to Subud.

"Intelligent, highly imaginative, and gripping, The Secret Resort Of Nostalgia by Sahlan Diver is one of those novels that will appeal to fans of mystery crafted with a good dose of suspense. Twenty-two-year-old Mike Denning has just graduated from England and has landed a great job at the perfect location, a remote island off the coast of Ireland. The weather is perfect, as are his pay and everything, including the wonderful views. Plus he has a boss who is beautiful and young and free. But there is a sinister eeriness about the place that gives Mike the creeps. He can't understand why half of the island is fenced off. The town's only connection with the outside world is through the use of an old telegraph. As Mike begins to check out the oddities of this beautiful place, he notices that he is being watched. But it is just the beginning of an unending nightmare. Can he get off this cursed island?"
