Never before Seen Publicly – Come See

Feast Your Eyes on the trinkets I bring before you tonight!

Strangers, Followers and bloggers alike!

Happening here, happening now! Is the first peak at a story you wouldn’t read this early if I never was granted permission to share it.

THIS IS NOT A SCIENCE FICTION STORY – but i highly recommend reading it and providing any feed back.

Before you do read it, i do remind folks that this is original work, and basic rights are protected even by me sharing.

Ironically this is the first short story I have posted in sometime; says something about a possible alteration in my title.

“Anon of Brastalon/TiitledUnderReview”

Prologue:

He struggled to regain his footing. Once he got to his feet he continued to run. He heard yells and shrieks of agony from behind him but he fought the urge to look back; he knew he couldn’t bear the sight he would see and he couldn’t risk getting tripped up again if he hoped to survive. About thirty paces to his right was the edge of the plateau; the massive plateau on which the Capital city stood. The city itself was barely visible. It was the only light in the sea of darkness that surrounded him. He continued to run. He glanced to his left into the trees and saw nothing but darkness. He felt so alone. The darkness consumed everything; he could barely see his feet as they hit the ground. The Capital city seemed to be moving away from him as he ran. He ran until his legs could carry him no more; yet, felt no closer to the city than when he began. Eventually the screams behind him subsided and he felt a fleeting sense of relief; not for his current situation but because the pain that reached for him at every scream had finally ceased. He doubled over breathing heavily. He was still in shock from what had just happened, A caravan of not even two dozen men? And Acridian merchants at that!? He thought as he tried to regain his breath; How could this happen? And so close to the Capital City? It was like something out of a nightmare: they came straight from the shadows. As he thought, he noticed the silence around him. It made him shudder. He continued to recount the experience; They struck before we even saw them. I swear if I—. He didn’t have time to finish his thought before he felt a sharp pain directly below his left shoulder blade. The source of this pain carried enough force to put him on his knees. He struggled to breathe as his torso remained awkwardly upright, supported by his knees. Gravity pulled at his body and provoked it to turn with the bulk of his weight. As he rolled onto the ground, there was a loud ‘snap’ of the arrow in his back breaking under his weight and lodging itself further into his body; which sent a sharp pain through his chest. As his life faded away, the last thing he saw was the sigil of a red scorpion on the chest of a dark hooded figure. The figure reached for something and the Acridian closed his eyes and exhaled slowly. The last thing he felt was the touch of cold metal caressing his throat… and all was silent.”

Soon to come!

Hello Everyone,

As you know, or hopefully knew, you are following what originally started out as being a short stories blog, with lengthy short stories posted on a monthly basis. (Yes, they were generally long.)

As time progressed this blog has grown, and as of 10pm (eastern standard) tonight I’ll stop being lazy and make it my own domain. To celebrate this very very late mile stone, I will featuring a small piece from a bigger story that belongs to fellow writer, poet, and friend of mine.

It’s exciting stuff, and it will be good to get in touch with my roots again. I.e posting a short story! 

So thank you everyone; for the traffic, the few people inspired enough to hit the “like button” and those even fewer who comment or message me their thoughts/comments. It means a lot. I know there aren’t thousands of you (yet) but to the many who activity flow through my website you make it enjoyable to keep the tradition going. 

And as alway, stay tuned! 

Ideas #4 revisited!

Hey Folks!

In a surprise (just so you know this is a random fact) walmart accidentally sold me four tables for the price of one. It was pretty interesting to discover that when I arrived home.

Back to the topic at hand! 

As those of you who are following this flash back with me, or those many who motivated the beginning of this; here is another section to the mystery of Erum and the village!

Part 4 of the Ideas

As always! Stay tuned!

Continuation off My last Post

Hi All! 

Welcome to another “Ideas” Feature that a few followers said should be revamped or at least reposted! 

Ideas Part 2

It was fun to tease people with this great idea! Maybe whenever I take a chunk out of TMU, I’ll take a crack at finishing it. Or if by popular demand then I will work on it sooner. 

Stay Tuned As always!

Holy Smokes! I’m writing. Part 2 or 2.

Well I spoke a little soon on the whole writing. I conceded on the fact that I would not be getting anything close to what I would have liked. I managed to pump out about 4000 words though. So there is a start.

Also I intend to start optimizing my break time at work with small attempts to crack into finishing up the short story “Rogue Intelligence.”

Stay tuned!

Rogue Intelligence Update!

So I drifted off to check on my ghost writer! The story has come along well. A few touches up here and there will be needed but thus far I enjoyed it.

To me the ending is everything, it is the last thing you leave the readers with. I want to leave you all with either one of two feelings. The first being a modest “wow” factor or the other leaving you upset and craving for more.

Both thoroughly please me! So feel free to express both when needed. EPD the end of January!

Stay tuned tomorrow for what I find to be some of the greatest concepts of writing.

Keys to the Universe “Tireh Defense Force”

As usual! Welcome my friends to another feature from the Terran Myth Universe, or the TMU.

Origins:
Following this is an continuation from the original posts’. Tireh – Part 1, Tireh – Part 2

On this post I will cover the almost lost elements that I forgot to publish weeks ago.

The Tireh Defense Force Options:
Or in a general summary their Mercenary Department.

Years after the creation of their accelerated cloning program, The Tireh quickly found themselves with a vast surplus of clone soldiers. In response to wasting resources on servicemen not serving the Tireh began including a defense package option for the faction or factions that purchased their gates. This was the furthest they were willing to go into the mercenary type of businesses in regards to regional conflicts between lawfully accepted factions.

Lawfully accepted means that they are accepted to be a legitimate government. Not pirates or large criminal forces.

The Defense Force package was a great success, most Tireh “mercenaries” focused on local defense of the systems that homed any of the Tireh Jump Gates.

The Defense force was expanded to include its ability to act as a Disaster aid force and as a peace keeper against pirates (when requested) for defensiveless solar systems.

The Tireh would go on to create its own task forces within the Defense force to contract for these options. Becoming one of the largest military powers in the galaxy to own the smallest amount of territory.

Stay tuned for a continuation of the TDF!

Keys to the Universe “Upcoming Post”

Following this is an excerpt from the original posts. Tireh – Part 1, Tireh – Part 2

Their Defense Force Options:
“Due to their vast Network of gates, the total unknown, the Tireh had to look for unconventional ways to supply its need for a military. Their governing body felt they needed to be able respond to threats, defend their gates and patrol any number of systems, without spreading their resource to thin.

Their answer came to this predicament by the creations of an accelerated cloning program, which would offer them countless of service personnel to meet their needs. As long as they could supply them.

They eventually had over whelming number of clone servicemen in their fleet, and vast amounts of warships with no assigned duties. So the Tireh then created another business, and it was almost mercenary in its method of operation. It also was Subjected to a lot more restrictions than a normal mercenary business. The Tireh took to supply the option of a Defense Force to parties that purchased gates from them. It became a major success.”

Following this post will be the indeptt post!
