My writings revolve primarily around the universe of the K’Arian Legions, and I’ve amassed a huge amount of information and background notes that I use both to maintain consistency in my stories as well as to create a sense of depth and “reality”.
Whilst I don’t believe that I write with any particular moral in mind, the majority of my writings contain a strong transhumanistic theme at their core. I blend technology and imagination together, creating believable dilemmas and conflicts for my characters, whilst encapsulating the environment in a coherent and structured way to give an added sense of realism to the stories.
I’ve also started to write short stories for web publication, based both within the Legion universe and elsewhere, and trying my hand at writing a short horror story.
I’ll post excerpts of both my stories and my notes files about the Legion Universe here, giving people a chance to see the background that supports the rich and finely developed alternative reality of my books. I hope that people can use this site to gain inspiration to start writing their own stories about the places they imagine about.
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample an empire down.
We, in the ages lyingArthur O’Shaughnessy
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.
