Short Stories

RECENT:

A Song of the Earth
The story of a young rebellious Elf.
After years of walking in the woods and communing with the 'spirit' of the forest I collected my various impressions, intuitions, and experiences. 
Here I wanted to explore looking through the eyes of another people whose lives are embedded in the natural world.
And how would they see our world.

City of the Dead
This was my first attempt at a love story of sorts.
The two mythical worlds of the Living and the Dead are here revisioned as two cities that co-exist side by side.
The inspiration and vision for this story came in a single flash and plagued me for several years before I finally wrote it down.

Night Sea Journey
The inspiration was to explore what I would like to happen after I die if my mind isn't transferred into an A.I. that is..
Package my body into a pod and send it off to space. It follows the shamanic journey into the underworld.
Part of the idea came from school kids forwarding packages to other schools around the world.
Each school would add something to the box and send it along it's way.

Raven Steals the Light
This story is an extension of Augmented Dreams and explores a character who does not appear in the novel.
It is a hybrid of science fiction and ancient myth.
