Jake (Going Home)

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Jake’s life is a merry jaunt around a militant mindset of misusing impossible science.

He’s a seven thousand year old teenager, an extraterrestrial marooned since the Bronze Age, waiting patiently for us to advance in science and social graces.

He needs a way back to the stars but he won't risk giving us anything too dangerous. That is, until he loses the formula to manipulate time. More

About the author

Storytelling has always been among my favorite pastimes. Movies, Stage plays, songs and fairytales; I love 'em all. To be wrapped in the pages of a fantasy adventure is inarguably among the greatest and most absorbing mind trips one might take, and all that's needed is a good book and a light to read by.

Fiction has a special attraction. The mind sees and feels and lives with the characters through all of their passions and exploits. How can one truly ride on the wings of a dragon except in a fairytale? How better to travel through space and time than in the comfort of an overstuffed chair?

Fantasy, you may have guessed, is my personal favorite. The only things that are real are the only things that really matter; how we think, how we feel, how we cope with all the chaos when life spirals out of our control. We have heroes to inspire, villains to hate, and breathtaking scenes that can only be imagined.

It isn't the stories so much as the characters that involve us. By learning about them we might learn something of ourselves. That's what great storytelling really is; exploring foreign ideas and strange beliefs in the safety of familiar surroundings. And, the best stories will force us to think. That's a good thing when so often reality discourages it.

For those who enjoy reading as I do, there are worlds to discover and many stories yet to tell.
