For four thousand years, the sky-dwelling Aehirim were out of contact with the ground. Now, a secret organization called the Faemor and their mind-control technology threaten the Aehirim’s... More > stable government as the leader of the Faemor plots her rise to power. Rohui, a young newspaper editor and activist attempting to expose the Faemor, has never been the best at looking before he leaps. With angry conspirators giving chase, Rohui decides it’s up to him to save his civilization by making the plunge to solid ground, seeking the Slumbering Demon, a mysterious power which may be nothing more than an ancient myth. Tagging along in Rohui’s quest are a restless farmboy named Wilder and Wilder’s rambunctious younger sister Kieri, both curious about this atmospheric interloper and the world he comes from.

Another selection of strange tales from Australian Poet, David Lewis Paget, the Master of Narrative Poetry. Following on from 'The Devil on the Tree', this is a selection of 60 poems, all in strict... More > rhyme and metre, each one dealing with another facet of the strange quirks of humanity in story form. The supposition behind this book is that after a cataclysm in which 99% of humanity is swept away, the survivors receive a visit from a Magi, astrologer or seer. Curious about the history of civilisation before the disaster, they ask him to provide tales of people from the past. He collects them together on a regular basis and tells them a story each night. These tales vary from Gothic horrors to the conquest of space, to magic and myth. All the foibles of human nature are revealed to them, representative of a 'civilised' society. Each poem is designed to entertain. Even readers who normally dislike poetry are entranced with these. The book runs to 172 pages, and should be read curled up in a chair in dim light.< Less

Before we too into the Dust descend;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and -- sans End! —FitzGerald version which philosophy I totally agree with, although, The search for the ultimate truth sublime Of all that is leads us wise through its clime, Both within and without—a swelling quest; For then we know this place for the first time. —Austin P. Torney So, herein, we’ll meander on through life’s curious magic-shadow show, with my new quatrains, along with Omar transmogrifications.< Less
