Brujas de la Noche (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
26 chapters   —   updated Feb 06, 2020 05:29AM
Description: ***Spanish Edition*** Pocos lo saben, pero, debajo de nuestras ciudades, en medio de los bosques y montañas y hasta bajo el océano, hay otro mundo, un mundo lleno de magia, lugares fantásticos y criaturas mitológicas e imaginarias. Por casualidad, me enteré de él, y mi curiosidad me llevó a explorarlo. Hoy, me arrepiento de no haberme controlado, de no haber ignorado ese conocimiento y continuado con mi vida normal. Porque, aunque haya visto cosas increíbles más allá de la imaginación de la mayoría de las personas, conocí también a las Brujas de la Noche y las terribles verdades sobre la condición humana y el lugar de la humanidad en el universo que trajeron con ellas. ¿Cómo volver a una vida normal después de todo lo que vi? No sé si es posible, pero este relato es un intento de paliar los terribles efectos de este conocimiento, un primer paso en dirección a la normalidad. Tal vez compartir todo lo que descubrí, la simple idea de que este conocimiento no es sólo mío, me pueda ayudar.
Witches of the Night (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
26 chapters   —   updated Jan 24, 2020 05:33AM
Description: Few know this, but, beneath our cities, in the midst of forests and mountains and even under the waters of the ocean, there is another world, a world full of magic, fantastic places, and mythological and imaginary creatures. By chance, I became aware of it, and my curiosity led me to explore it. Now, I regret not having controlled myself, not having ignored this knowledge and continued with my regular life. For, though I have seen incredible things beyond the imagination of most people, I also met the Witches of the Night and the terrible truths about the human condition and the place of humanity in the universe they brought with them. How do I get back to a normal life after everything I saw? I don't know if it's possible, but this account is an attempt to mitigate the terrible effects of this knowledge, a first step toward normalcy. Perhaps sharing everything I discovered, the simple idea that this knowledge is not only mine, will help me.
Bruxas da Noite (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
26 chapters   —   updated Jan 08, 2020 05:43AM
Description: ***Portuguese Edition*** Poucos o sabem, mas, debaixo das nossas cidades, no meio das florestas e montanhas e até sob as águas do oceano, existe um outro mundo, um mundo cheio de magia, lugares fantásticos e criaturas mitológicas e imaginárias. Por casualidade, tomei conhecimento dele, e a minha curiosidade levou-me a explorá-lo. Hoje, arrependo-me de não me ter controlado, de não ter ignorado esse conhecimento e continuado com a minha vida normal. Pois, embora tenha visto coisas incríveis para além da imaginação da maioria das pessoas, também conheci as Bruxas da Noite e as terríveis verdades sobre a condição humana e o lugar da humanidade no universo que trouxeram com elas. Como voltar à vida normal depois de tudo o que vi? Não sei se é possível, mas este relato é uma tentativa de atenuar os terríveis efeitos desse conhecimento, um primeiro passo em direção à normalidade. Talvez partilhar tudo o que descobri, a simples ideia de que este conhecimento não é só meu, me ajude.

O Godungava by Joel Puga
"A quest to find the Godungava-a story of many creatures, that Seidus loves to imagine about. I really enjoyed the book. Seidus, Iriáris and there companions search for the artifact among dangerous places and unimaginable creatures they come across."
The Godungava by Joel Puga
"The Godungava is a fantasy novella heavily influenced by the world of Dungeons & Dragons. The storyline is fairly well-paced but tends to get bogged down during the fight sequences which I feel are a little heavy on the description of the individual " Read more of this review »

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”
J.R.R. Tolkien
