I've written a lot of stories, and one thing I've learned is that stories have a life. They want to be read, and they're brought to life by readers. Readers give them meaning, give them substance and fulfill their destinies. Stories aren't picky about who reads them. They welcome everyone. Money means nothing to them - they don't care how much the reader paid and they equally don't care how much the author made. Stories want to live and they want to be a part of your life. I often think of them as like paper boats you place upon a stream. You never know where they'll end up!
"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

A fable about the tensions, interplay and winds of change that move art, public opinion, and government. Take any major endeavor or crisis and there are parallels. A good story that will only come from Indie publishing.

This fantastic tale kept me riveted. A great idea and grand execution. The lead character Darian is a formidable cretin of a man! Yet you are drawn to the story of his life and work due to some well laid writing.
A story with a want-to-know-more feel at every page. A greatly knowledgeable fictional bio that is a great idea and just a great story

I had just recently begun my journey into the land of digital fiction. So much to wade through, so much to think about.
I came across Fixture one night and was enthralled by the theme. It is hard to describe the Fixture, that's a quote from the story actually but it is applicable to the story itself. In this way perhaps we can begin to understand what the Fixture means.
The Fixture isn't done yet, but in an infinite universe can anything ever be called complete? The story is quite readable and I do think it might even give most of us something to think about, perhaps rather deeply. Which is my favorite mode of thought.
