Lord's Bane

This tier gives you access to the first book in the Code Wars series — Lord's Bane and the chapters will be progressively uploaded. This story tells of another world far away in which humanity first developed. At this time in its long history, a young and well-loved noble is persecuted by an increasingly cruel bureaucracy. The goals of the regime are hidden, but the custodians of the ancient druidic culture help this young man break the hold it has on him and sets the scene for a clever rebellion.

Features

  • I've written seven scifi and spec fiction novels that are quality literature with groundbreaking thought and a responsible yet exciting world view. I'll be uploading chapters progressively from these books, one book at a time, and will also provide various articles about writing but also about the world in general. I'll cap that off with a new well loved photo each time I log on or upload.

Hi, I did have some samples of my work on this public post area but having much of it in this area  reduces the navigability of this rather awkward site. Please request some short samples if you're not sure about committing to funding me, but I will include the planetary intro, here, as a very short sample, below.


Ellaras

Ellaras is a brilliant blue world orbiting a solitary yellow star at the outer limits of our galaxy. Four small islands spread over the vast oceans are home to a remarkable people — a people very like us although much fewer in number. The most significant difference lies in their capacity for telepathy and other mind powers, which they know simply as Mindcraft.

At one with both the land and their vast oceans and well guided by the druids’ reverence for the nature spirits, these people were for the most part fair and content until after near a hundred thousand years of chronicled history, the brazen philosophy of Trans-Alchemy mysteriously rose to the fore.

Its deceitful proponents brought war to, Altora, the home isle of the traditional ruling Tzars, and then to the rest of Ellaras.

In the end, the High Council of the Meccanat murdered the royal family of Desea, seized control and tore down the great palace. In the absence of the Tzars, many things changed and fear began to rule.

The post above is the prologue to a new project I'm working on. It's a fan fiction version of the Lord of the Rings which I'll put from now on on the $5 tier. Initially there aren't too many differences, except that the Archers are halfelven folk rather than just little men with more grace and magic than hobbits. Also, two of the initial party of four are female. Further in, the story will change significantly with the driving idea that the magic of the one ring is not innately evil (how can it be, really?) and that it can be purified.
