The Guardian of the Lake

"Good morning Loki, isn't it a beautiful day?" said Syrus, in his unusually happy voice. "Syrus, I have found that most mornings here are beautiful, but then I'm partial to waking up in Kambarington" replied Loki.

Sitting on the porch of the cabin, Loki was enjoying the first rays of the new day. It promised to be a warm day, and with the absence of clouds rain was not going to factor into the weather. Loki liked sitting here in the morning, watching the dawning of the new day in the little hamlet that made up the valley of the Lake. The Druid Lake hamlet was made up of folks of all races that decided to join Loki here and to make a go of it. These were his friends, his neighbors, and his family. The hamlet started with four families traveling to this valley to assist Loki in his task as Guardian, and has since grown to forty families from all walks of life. Life in the valley was good. "Good morning Loki, isn't it a beautiful day?" said Syrus, in his unusually happy voice. "Syrus, I have found that most mornings here are beautiful, but then I'm partial to waking up in Kambarington" replied Loki. Though it had been over ten years since he had first returned here, Loki never seemed more at home than he felt in this land. Drake had just arrived up the hill, coming from the main road, leading to the Guardians home, puffing from the long incline. "Not even summer yet, and it's hotter than a devil's convention in Las Vegas. Not sure I'll ever get used to the weather here." "Drake, you know the weather here is just as it was back in Pennsylvania, just not as extreme" chided Syrus. "I, myself like it. And besides, there are no driveways to shovel, and the grass is easy to keep after." "Gentlemen...you know that we do not speak of life on the other side" reminded Loki. "Besides, now that you are both here, we need to discuss the issue of the hamlet, and how to handle its expansion."

The midnight shadows of Renaissance Venice conceal intrigue, romance...and murder. "Combines historical context with lush sensuality and nuanced wit." — Publisher's Weekly Bianca Salva's love of science has led her to defy the conventions of her day and illicitly practice medicine among the poor of Venice. She's managed to keep her pass time a secret—until she is discovered over the lifeless body of a young courtesan, by the last person she'd ever want to see. Ian Foscari, Conte d'Aosto, is known for being rich, handsome...and heartless. Finding Bianca over the dead body, he concludes she's the murderer. Yet for reasons he cannot explain, her protests move him. He offers to give her one week to prove her innocence, but she'll have to move into his house and be his prisoner. Her other option: the authorities and certain death. Bianca has no choice but to agree to his maddening terms. She's furious at having to cede her hard won freedom, and unprepared for the effect of his presence on her, for the longings he awakes in parts of her body she's only studied in books. As Bianca struggles to focus on finding the killer, Ian fights his own battle between the undeniable attraction he feels for her and the painful scars of his past. When their mutual attraction blazes to life, they are both dazzled by it's force. Passion burns through their reserves, teaching them both to trust again. Love again. But this fragile alliance is soon tested. Lured into a web of scheming and betrayal, Bianca and Ian find themselves in a race against the clock to save their lives, their hearts, and the city of Venice itself.

They soon encountered a planet with two suns whose Triped inhabitants had perished from suicide & madness. While the professor wasn't affected, the Zoromes, unable to defend themselves, succumbed to the same strange malady, eventually leaving the professor alone and despondent, in a crippled Zorome ship.

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.

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...
