I began writing horror stories at age eight after stuffing myself full of comic book dread. I now see myself as one of the heralds of coming good (an expression first coined by G.I.Gurdjieff). There are many of us and our aim is to uplift and inspire hope in others that the world will not end in apocalyptic dystopia (dyspepsia, maybe), but turn out pretty darn well in the end. Of course, in the meantime...
In the meantime, read my novel 'Letitia Unbound' for a thrilling adventure with plenty of chuckles.

All Queen Letitia wanted was a different life, far from the tiresome fetters of reigning over ramshackle Melloria,the world's smallest absolute monarchy. Little did she know she and her family would be hurtled into a maelstrom of defeat, degradation and downsizing, that would turn their world upside down.

  • Coming Home (Dicky's Story) on Dec. 13, 2012

    14661657 Trevor George Before reading Coming Home (Dicky's Story), I noticed it had already garnered several five-star reviews. What's with that? I wondered. Then I started reading it and stopped wondering. This is a stellar work of fiction. Former rocket scientist Sarah R. Yoffa has launched a moonprobe of a masterwork, with a sparkling array of characters and a storyline that rolled me along in its variegated vapor trail. After a little hesitating at the start (after all, I don't read rom coms or faithwalk stories), I found myself increasingly excited by what the book was telling me - about myself and my fellow earth-dwellers. What really turned me on and had me WOWing all the way to bedtime (no, not the sizzling sex scenes between Leah and Dicky, scrumptious though they are, nor the origin of Dicky's name - cute!), was the skill with which character, plot and theme are so seamlessly woven together. It's one thing to honor Balzac's dictum for the novel: that it reflect the human condition, but to portray so vividly how we could be and should be, as the author had done, is nothing short of breathtaking. Does the book have any flaws (other than minor editing ones)? Is the Pope a Catholic? No, don't answer that! The inclusion of Hebrew in the dialog is not only germane to the story, but shakes us readers out of our comfort zones and gives us words to circumvent our cultural hang-ups. Isn't Yih-hoo-deem a better word than Jews and Hashem a better word than God? Our habitual words mean so many different things to different people that the use of eev-reet to purify our perceptions of people, cultures and the Source of all that we are is dope. (This book brings out the Dude in me!) If you read Coming Home and disagree with me and all those other 5-star reviewers, then the world deserves to end on 12/21/12, or any time soon. So buy it, read it (as many times as you can) and be of good cheer. The world will go on to greater glory - with or without a Great War in 200 years time - thanks to books like this
  • When Minds Collide (Phoenician Short #0.1) on March 27, 2013

    Shorn From The Dead When William Harrington, Director of Security for the Community on an arid planetary colony, shows up at the research lab of his husband Andrew Caine, he's not a happy cowboy. He's come with a cease and desist order to shut down Drew's lab. Drew has been making Ronningers, Artificial Lifeforms (ALs), by fusing human bodies with nonhuman brains, and the means by which the cadavers are harvested has created a rift between the spouses. Drew's delight at reuniting with Will after a long, chaste absence, plus the fact that they've known each other for over two hundred years,cuts no ice with William. The man he once loved has become, in his eyes, a murderer, a killer in vitro. Drew, whose freckled face and copper-colored hair contrasts with William's tanned features, long dark hair and dapper clothing and who is excited to tell Will about his Ronninger design, is thrown by his husband's stern accusion. Drew claims his corpses are defective humans who as Ronningers will labor usefully for the colony, their unthinking, unfeeling bodies performing basic tasks. William wants to replace the Ronningers with Proctors: living, brainwashed people of his and Drew's design, and the conflict between Drew and himself is not mitigated by Drew claiming Stafar Baghendi, the Colony Administrator, approves of his Ronninger project. The story develops through moments of tenderness, bigotry, crisis, danger and agonizing hope, culminating in an amazing combination of the best of all the main characters in a dazzling finale. Friday Baldwin's story of life, death and resurrection under the auspices of science will spark in you the desire to continue exploring the Phoenician world and learn of its terrors and wonders. A truly mind-blowing experience.
