Humour

I thought I better start writing after a long absence. The part of the brain which growled and went to sleep in one corner of my brain, just woke up and am trying to feed it. This is based on a joke from Soman, my cousin who used to make me sleep by telling me bed time stories when I was very young. That now puts him in the 'ancient' category. Sorry, bro! (He is a member here). This is a new one from him told to me when I visited him in Kerala, India, last year.

Sci-fi

This is an interlude in a book called Goddess designed as a link to another series of parallel world stories called MUTE. Goddess is the fourth book in a series of nine called the Nexus which is an area in an alternative near-future Wales with five pentagrams of ancient stones in the post-idustrial landscale that form the Nexus, a point about which the various parallel worlds of this particular Creation rotate. Amy Lewis is one of a gifted family who can move between worlds and spaces but here, she has yet to master her power and ends up in the arid world of the Mutes which is a climatic disaster-zone. It's a link but also a taster for MUTE which i hope to finish in 2012....

 Fiction: The Devils Tide (Section One in Rough Draft) - by flyboy (1763 words) - Date online (22-01-2010)
Historical

In the late 1500s Lincolnshire experienced a very high tide that broke the Banks of the River Witham and drowned many people - it all happened in a few hours. A famous poem was written about the incident where a husband and his mother were stranded on there farm house roof. The husband's wife and two children were drowned in that flash flood tide. In the middle of the night fate brought the bodies of the mans family back to the farm before they were swept out to sea forever. The story I am writing is about life cruelty and murder in the time of Henry IIIV and just after his death. How the husband is set on revenge for one death and is unknowingly responsible for the loss of his family. Revenge reaping a bitter harvest.
