“I could see why Archimedes got all excited. There was nothing finer than the feeling that came rushing through you when it clicked and you suddenly understood something that had puzzled you. It made you think it just might be possible to get a handle on this old world after all.”
Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

Veth'amar (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Paris Ise is the charming and attractive director of Wellspring Port Authority on the planet Kanm Grey, in the jurisdiction of the Old Estruvian Empire. Accepting into port what at first appears to be a derelict spacecraft, the Nasib, she soon discovers the charismatic captain is an actor and manager of an unusual acting troupe. The mysterious Monsieur Zeami Nogitsune quickly ingratiates himself into Wellspring’s high society. But as the number of disappearances of colonists at Wellspring Harbor begins to mount, one of whom is Paris’s assistant, so too does the mystery surrounding the odd company of actors. As Paris sets out to learn what has become of her young assistant, and other missing colonists, she discovers her own life is also in peril. Set against the lush backdrop of an intergalactic lands-end resort, the mystery shrouding the disappearances begins to deepen. As Monsieur Zeami and his company put on their first play, Izutsu, Paris finds it to be disturbingly parallel to that of her own life. And like Monsieur Zeami’s life-sized Bunraku puppets, no one is immune to the perils that await them. Yet, even as the colony’s Chief of Police, Darius Eparin races against time, he orders a quarantine of Wellspring Harbor. But it may already too late. For instead of finding new terrors in the outer reaches of the galaxy, they learn that an ancient one has followed men into the furthest reaches of the new space frontier.

Description: The mining colony at Drumwall Fortress on the planet of Cumaro was the ideal assignment: pristine, wild, and beautiful; with but one deadly flaw; Lord Banyon, the local tribal chieftain of the Mautlaut. Two years prior to Father Andrew's arrival, his predecessor, Father Menlo, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Now, a Mautlaut runner brings a message from Lord Banyon - written in flawless English. Could Father Menlo still be alive? Based on the works of St. John of the Cross' the Dark Night, and St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle, Drumwall is a science-fiction free-fall into a barbaric world where a Carmelite priest's faith is pitted against man, the elements, and his own psyche. Echoing the Book of Job and the Psalms, Drumwall is a mix of Carmelite Spirituality and the Old and New Testaments. Drumwall is not just a look into the future, but a monumental recall of the past. Drumwall is a step into the supernatural realm of Christian mysticism, and its ultimate outcome in the life of one man. Based upon the works of St. John of the Cross' the Dark Night of the Soul, and St. Teresa of Avila's work, the Interior Castle, Drumwall is a science-fiction free-fall into a pristine, barbaric world where a Carmelite priest's faith is pitched against man, the elements, and his own psyche. In it are contained echoes of the Book of Job and the Psalms. This is truly a story for those who are familiar with all of these works. For those who are not, it is still the thrill of a life-time, never to be forgotten. Drumwall is a mix of Carmelite Spirituality and the Old and New Testaments. This story is not just a step forward into the future, but a monumental recall of the past. What was old is now new! This is an exciting read for young and old alike, and an exciting step into the supernatural realities of mysticism, prayer and their ultimate outcome in the life of one man. Drumwall is now available at Lulu.com, in download, paperback and hardbound, and at Amazon.com with Kindle options.
