W.Wm.Mee’s ‘LEAR’ is a fresh look at a very old story; ‘the foolish old king that gives his kingdom away to his grasping, money grubbing children.’ A tale that seems right out of today’s ‘Fake News’ or the ‘Dr. Phil’ show --- BUT WITH A TWIST! The main character tells the tale ‘in his own words’ (along with some rather ‘creative editing’ of the Bard’s play tossed in.)

If you take the spanning saga of Outlander, subtract the time travel, sprinkle in the brooding nobility of Poldark, set it a few hundred years back, add a dusting of Downton Abbey, shake it all together with the flamboyant decadence of baroque-era Venice, and set the scene on the shores of Croatia—you have The House of Baric trilogy. It all begins with Part One: Shields Down. Enjoy this tale!

“The Lord” is a 5000 word short story which narrates a secular explanation for the traditions in the period of history between Abraham and Moses. It hopefully respects the sensibilities of the three major religions that hold this period to be governed by the supernatural. The story is part science fiction and part speculative religious history.
