A Confabulated Compendium of Anecdotes is a Steampunk speculative collection of tales. The stories, herein, provide a glimpse into the imagination of a most anomalous Author.
Be swept away, if you dare, by sultry maidens with mechanical gadgets, hi-tech flying machines and grinding gears. Peculiar alien forms hell-bent on saving the earth, and a conglomerate of Vamps lead by Count Valdo.
Howbeit, why wait for me to tell you more, turn the book atop and be absorbed in the unputdownable.
Genghis Khan once said, “I am the punishment of God…If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.”
Janus Rion considers himself to be that punishment and the entire world is the transgressor. And like the conquerors of old, Rion has amassed an army of soldiers unlike anything the world has ever seen. Each one a proverbial Achilles on the battlefield. All save one; one who should have died when his master told him to!
He is the Achilles who has no Troy to fight for; he is the samurai with no master… he is the Ronin!
“There are three things I know are certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie, part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are deceitful, evil, and conniving.
The third thing I know—and it is a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” – Eliana
“You’ve come to the Rims. This is the place of High Adventure!”
It all began with One Last Errand (SylverMoon Chronicles, Volume V).
Before Dungias, before JoJo Starblazer, before the games being played to change the known universe… First there was a single young boy touched by Fate.
Nothing is what it seems!
Looking at William, one sees a high school senior, an athlete, and a young scholar,
But the world away from the Human eye is where William struggles. He can’t sleep, plagued by nightmares of being chased by this hideous creature. And during the day, he hears voices. They aren’t always but they are getting stronger.
One last thing… William is human. He’s just not one of the more commonly known varieties. His people are looking for him and they don’t necessarily have his best intentions in mind.
Alexandra has just had her summer plans ruined by her mother who is sending her to her aunt’s home in Provincetown, refusing to let her sail the islands with her best friend’s family. The teenager finds herself in a world of artistic expression, self-awareness and no television! While there, she is forced to face her insecurities and fears for her future over the course of the first “real” summer she’s ever known. Alexandra finds that she is able to learn about herself through art and that when she looks, she can see herself reflected in the love of those around her.
You’re on your board. And whether you are a Barney or a Marley, the wave is coming…
That used to be Genie’s mantra. Little did she know that the wave would literally take her out of this world. Now, faced with a new life, unbelievable dimensions and unexpected dangers, she’s got to pull off the ride of her life, or wipe out.
You have just entered a new realm – a new Universe where there are worlds, races, powers, allies and enemies just waiting to be discovered.
Your place may be with the wielders of Iro… or perhaps as a Traveler… it could be that your destiny lies on a ship flying through the stars… or straining your skills on a battlefield… maybe you’re most suited to hours spent pouring over ancient tomes… or engaged in a game of chess that will shape the cosmos.
Whatever your place – wherever your destination – you will find yourself…
Beyond the Outer Rim
A cop… a fighter… a couple of wannabe Wall-Street suits… all brought together by a Shaman.
What they have in common is simple: they are the fulcrum that will change the face of New Orleans. The city has been split into Quarters, each one ruled by a leader that has no intention of giving ground to anyone else. Gangs roam the streets, amped up with cyber-ware and itching for a fight. Even the digital world is unsafe, as teams of hackers jockey for supremacy. Either a way will be found to bring order to the chaos, or the powder-keg of a city will go up in flames. Can this small group of determined strangers find a way to claim the fuse before it’s too late?
Navigating the choppy waters of life is hard enough… even tougher if you’re growing up without parents. Naomi was making the best of the bag hand she’d been dealt, trying to figure out who she was in a world of bullies, do-gooders, and social workers.
But then she loses the only true friend she had, and a series of strange events start hitting her from every side. Unsure of where to turn, Naomi finds herself in a new state and a new foster home, and once again she has to start from zero.
Before she realizes it, Naomi is on her own and thrown into a world she had no idea even existed. Magic is real, and she’s a superstar.
When everyone wants a piece of the latest attraction, what’s a girl to do?
Taylor Prince, a high school Sophomore, has all the issues one would expect in a young man of this age. He has girlfriend issues, conflicts with several upper class men, and a test in History he’s not quite prepared to take.
He’s also dealing with a few problems that are outside of the norm. Taylor lost his twin brother, Tyrone, to a drive-by shooting – and it seems that everyone in the family is not quite over it – his father was a realtor when the housing bubble burst, and, oh yeah, Taylor’s been possessed by a Dragon! There may be a very good reason why his Anger Management is not going as well as hoped…
