The Beast And The God-Woman

(16,500 words)

Beast Cover (600x900)The greatest terrors come from within.

 

Yili never questioned the Gods’ decrees, as handed down to the people from the elders.  Do not tarry long on the beach, for there lurks the Beast.  Do not venture beyond the breakers, for the sea holds nothing but death and man lives on the island alone.

 

Until the day a strange object approached the island, borne by the wind and waves toward Yili’s home until it broke apart on the reef and deposited a woman and a man, who could only be Gods themselves, onto the beach.  The Beast wants to destroy them.  The elders distrust them.  And Yili finds himself helplessly drawn to the God-Woman, at the risk of all he knows and loves.

So You Want To Be A Dragon Slayer…

(10,700 words, Completed 30 September 2011)

82 Light Years away on Alcor Five, great flying beasts called Reptus Volans, which closely resemble the dragons of European legend, sit at the top of the food chain. They are so dangerous and exist in such great numbers that the Colonial Allocation Committee forbad colonization of Alcor Five by humans. Thus the planet went untouched and largely ignored until entrepreneurs formed Dragon Safaris, Inc. Using state of the art space portal technology, Dragon Safaris transports hunters and adventurers, along with specially trained guides, to Alcor Five. There they do battle with the great beasts, seeking to earn the title Dragon Slayer. When I saw Dragon Safaris’ commercial on late night television, it rekindled the sense of magic and adventure I used to have when I was younger. I could not resist. I needed to go on this journey and pit myself against these dragons. I convinced my two oldest friends, Vinnie and Carl, to come along. This is our story.
