Before the cities left, and plunged our world into a global dark age, there were stories that told that history. Collected here are the works of three authors who have been telling scraps and pieces of what happened. All through the eyes of the people (and animals) who lived it. Some are fantastic, others could be tall tales, perhaps some are downright lies. But that is all why they had to be published as fiction. Because few people would believe it, even as a TV documentary. All highly speculative. And that's why it's called Science Fiction. But its a very human telling. You may even find yourself in here...

How passionate the Nineteenth Century! When daring ideas sparked modern innovations; discontent sparked European revolutions; and need for inspired leadership spurred Thomas Carlyle to ponder the qualities of â€œGreat Men.â€ Yet the American frontier had its own visionaries â€¦ and the Metairie Saga is a tempestuous tale of their daring spirits, devoted hearts and forbidden desires. Inspired by Goethe's "Dream no small dreams," this exciting series often parallels historic European events, while literary details and classic illustrations inspire its pages. Surviving Chicagoâ€™s Great Fire, Galen Metairie returns to Alteza, his familyâ€™s cattle empire in the Territory of New Mexico. But can the love of his young bride surmount the bond her mysterious husband and his brotherâ€™s wife still share? Or will a ruthless renegade prove a greater threat? Because if Moor is involved, the issue is never cattle or land or even wealth; but vulnerabilities â€¦ and one manâ€™s power over another manâ€™s heart.

The year is 2099, SF. The planet is Ecliptic Earth. The population is approximately two and a half billion, a combination of Humanoids, Androids, and Soligrams. The problem is an egocentric and overriding Oligarchy, a dimwitted Dictatorship, and a damaged Democracy, locked in a fierce and blatantly personal fight to stay afloat in a tumultuous, combative, broken civilization. Welcome to Ecliptic Earth. The Glyph Saga: Book Two, Mad at Truth, is the second installment of this series. The war torn region of Maurasia is at the center of this story. After Randu, Rachale, Que, and Gina made their Great Escape from Panga Uno Animo, they find themselves lost and clueless about life outside the silvery Gates. With the cruel onslaught of a natural winter imminent, they shed their royal guises and hide in a salvage yard on the Old New Engle coast. They manage to make many allies, such as Donny, the jovial Soligram owner of the salvage yard, and Jacob, a half-Android Maurasian war hero. They also meet a powerful little Homo radians girl named Viky, and it seems that the PUA would love to get their hands on her. In the meantime, the PUA replaces their absconders, by recruiting outside the NQLC. The PUA also has yet another Lifeform Warfare scheme, attempting to gain the trust of Guandaland or Maurasia, so they can double-team the remaining region.
