Posidon's Map

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is the map I've imagined for my story, Mark of the King.  Hopefully I'll start getting that story reposted soon in the Wyvern's library.  The story left to us by Plato names Posiedons five set of twin sons.  He gave the two eldest son's, Atlas and Gadeirus, the Isle of Atlantis while the other eight sons were given diver Islands. As you can tell, coast lines are changed, more of the ocean waters are locked frozen at the poles.  The Mediteranean Sea is not one body, but two separate large fresh water bodies that are still closed off from the Atlantic Ocean.  Not until Atlantis's submergence did quakes break apart the Pillars of Hercules, allowing the ocean to sweep in and flood much of the basin. Some say Mu and Atlantis the same place, but my map shows Mu as the Antartic.   It suffered its fate much earlier when a pole shift displaced it to the present inhospitable position.  The once flourishing Alien race that lived there was destroyed. The burn marks, holes, tears, and jagged edges is on purpose in an attempt to make the map look aged.

Dream Weaver

This story was inspired by a beautiful painting done by William P. Jones called Star Fisher. I commented, that such a wonderful picture deserved a story. William quite graciously allowed me to write the story. I am honored and hope my words as elegant as his beautiful drawing. His picture can be found here. Star Fisher Took care of the first sentence -- Thanks again, Chris!!!!!

Market and Fortune

This is just a short (around 500 words) about a class of people, the Wagoneers, that are found in my story Magic's Secret.  It gives some insight into their background. This is a different world as you can tell from the line about the twin suns.

Nighmara's Cast

Sweaty and shaken, you've woken from a terrible dream.   Nighmara only smiles at your discomforture, knowing full well her creations are to blame.    Big thanks to Jim Bowers and Chuck Gregory for the help on this piece.  For some final polish, I must say thanks to  Ian,and  Kelsy.  I appreciate the crits, and have made edits.

Starfall's Child

Reworked this a little bit.  This piece started as a prompt from a friend, where she held a contest for others to interpret the words of her young son's wonderful little story.  I thought his prompt had quite the fairy tale feel to it, so that was how I expounded on it.  Yes, I do have permission to use the prompt and post my story.

Guardian of Aelfwine Woods

My story is inspired by a wonderful painting by Chris Bell.  I can only hope my story is as magical as his painting.I'm not good at linking, but you can find the picture in my favorites tab and his http address is:http://www.elfwood.com/~bell1973/the-forest-door.2567654.html I've a newer version on which I'm working, just ironing out a few wrinkles and fixing a few flaws.  Hopefully I'll get it posted soon. I was trying to be clever, so brownie points to anyone who can figure out how I came up with the names for my characters.
