The Birchwood Cub

Jon Dixon

The Birchwood Cub is a bit of an experiment, and is an attempt to write a 'folk-tale' from another culture, in this case the Elfen, the non-human race to which Caeci Wolfsong belongs (see 'Of Mist and Marshlight'). The elfen were created over the course of several years in the 1970s, both as another race of characters in the Dungeons and Dragons games that I played a lot at the time, and later, in my writing, as a useful way of exploring humanity through the eyes of a non-human character. Over the years I created a huge 'back-history' of the elfen culture and mythology, of which this story is a fragment. It is the kind of story that story-tellers have been handing down through the generations in every time and culture. I was very influenced by the tone of old Russian folk-tales when I wrote this short piece, particularly by a small volume of Russian tales for children, told by Alexei Tolstoy and published in the U.K. in the 1940s by George Routledge & Sons.

Prophecy of Hope (Prologue) Book 1

Christopher Sillett

This is the prologue for my self-published book Prophecy of Hope, Book 1.The prologue introduces Volotron, the all mighty powerful sorcerer, and his servant Ominious, the frightening Soul Collector.Note to readers, this is an uneditted version of the prologue.  I did have the whole editted book, but because of multiple hardrives crashing all the one time, I have lost the complete editted version of the entire book.  Luckily it was already published with the editted version on disk.  I just haven't had the chance to put it back on the computer.

Snippet 2: On Orcs

This was just to see if I could write a decent combat scene with a secondary objective to see if I could interleave action with some other scene or more informative segments. Let me know if it worked. As always, comments and crits are much appreciated. 26/11/2008
