About Warren Adams-Ockrassa

Sometime about 14 billion years ago, a point in space erupted into a five-or-so-dimensional black hole. From there, the rest is history.

Today, I tell a lot of stories. Some of them are of The Twenty. Set largely about 2500 years in the future, these stories tell of life in a post-diaspora human space wherein our own Earth is lost in the mists of time, but lives and loves play out in myriad fantastic environments among twenty or so colonized worlds.

Other stories are of more local and immediate interest. Some are poetic, short articulate insights into the life of, say, a camera; others are of near-future events that borrow from common tropes but play with them in unexpected ways. My influences include PK Dick, RA Wilson, HP Lovecraft, Douglas Adams, Delany, Le Guin, Tiptree, Clarke, Niven, Bradbury, Pratchett, Ginsberg, Burroughs, Sagan, Tyson, Gribbin, and Dyson. Make of that alchemy what you will.

Nothing here is probably like anything you've ever quite read. If you've got a yen for the odd, you'd do well to look here. This is a ship that plumbs space, time, body, and mind. Welcome aboard.

About the Series: Tales from the Eastern Shore
Spanning centuries, each of these stories is also a stand-alone narrative that describes the lives and times of the people living in and around Peed's Vale and the township of Burlingham.

Reviews

Review by: vengerofthelight on March 13, 2018 :
To the writer of ''Wolves and Cougars,'' Warren Adams-Ockrassa:

I've just finished ''Wolves and Cougars.'' I'd like to say that I enjoyed it, and I'm glad for the self-awareness presented in the afterword. Nearly every criticism I could muster was addressed therein.

I'd also like to say ''thank you.'' Your book gave me pause to consider gender identity in a way I hadn't before; in short, it engaged my mind, which pleases me. As always, I enjoy your writing, but beyond the visceral gratification of admiring sentence structure and diction, this particular piece gave me something other than the work itself to think about.

To anyone else reading this review: I urge you to keep an open mind, and suspend your disbelief. This is a story told for the sake of the story, and -- to quote this story's author -- is ''a story that needed to be told.''
