Wow, has it been a whole year already?

sordak and I have been s-l-o-w-l-y writing (in my case massively revising) our stories.

Last year Titans' Travels, the continuation of The Roman View (an alternate history of Ancient Rome) had recently started.

I'm still nattering (and carping) on Make A Wish Upon Tomorrow, and I've been attempting to review books and stories I've been reading lately.

Our site is also 'hosting' (with permission I am re-posting and editing) a series of vignetts by my heart sister under the title of Other-wheres and Other-whens that take place in another reality and involves magic, Fey-folk, unicorns and sentient animals.

I hope some of you will take a few minutes to look over our drabblings and maybe leave a comment. Or mention one (or all) of them to your friends.


IPSTD: The Wave That Broke on the Ingerfell

Posted by caper_est on 2011.04.23 at 09:24
From the universe of my near-complete and long-blogged-about fantasy novel, Three Katherines of Allingdale, here's a later folk-tale of how the most dubious and disreputable of the three - the witch Kit Fox of Maltby - once saved the world.  Sort of.

The Wave That Broke on the Ingerfell

Happy technopeasantry to all!

Naturally, it's late. But for everyone's amusement, here's a story from my "Under the Green Moon Setting. Enjoy everyone, and happy IPSTP Day!

The Last Great Victory of the Green Legion

Well that's all- see ya next year!

Oh, yes, my offering for the pixel-stained technopeasant wretchedry: a 700-word humor column about getting great ideas in one's sleep, more or less.

Oh My Heart, Oh My Soul

Cottington dropped the desiccated pixie’s body into the boiler's holding box and turned the stoking mechanism that fed the fire. A decently dried pixie corpse would give a good six good hours of steady heat. One of the pixie’s wings caught in the mechanism and Cottington grabbed a small poker to push it through to the grate, slamming the holding box door as the pixie flared.

“Charles!” he called, “Open the number two, and watch the pressure on the Professor’s device.”

“Got it, old man!” Charles Porter’s voice echoed from the rear of the hanger. “I know my business, thank you!”
