 Fiction: Artistic Foil. Pt 2 - by scrollop (523 words) - Date online (01-09-2006)
Humour

Part 2 of the life of a London gallery owner. Of course, comments on my little dabblings are more welcome than golden trinkets falling from the sky. Please continue on from Pt 2. This part is more an exposition on the protagonists character rather than any real plot development (which comes next) so I hope you don't find it mundane. It forms part of the opening chapter of a novel. --------------

 Fiction: Inequality - by Inebriatedky *NEW AUTHOR* Welcome this new UKA author (3035 words) - Date online (28-08-2006)
Sci-fi

I'm a casual writer - this is a story I wrote on a whim about a month ago. It's the emotionally wrenching tale of a normal guy who accidentally discovers that 1 equals 2, and the horrific consequences thereof. It's not quite finished, but ends on an exciting cliffhanger - I'll try to resolve it some time. I know what's going to happen, I just haven't written it yet. Any comments, no matter how harsh, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sci-fi

This is only the first of three parts of the first book of a trilogy (IE., there's another two parts to this book, alone). I am interested in feed back - its a sci-fi, for sci-fi fans who are of a post teenage bracket and wanted the Star Wars films to be made for us and our bachelor friends rather than eight year olds and their families. The premise is set a thousand years in the future and mankind has spread into the galaxy, but has not yet encountered intelligent life. So the story opens. Bit cheesey as an opening idea, but it gets darker and nastier later on. First chapter just lets you get to know life in the third millennium and then the plot starts kicking in. Am thinking of re-writing the introduction, but let us know. Cheers much, Gaz.

This is the one I read at UKAlive. It's essentially a character study, with (hopefully) tragi-comic ovedrtones. I have included an audio version but it isn't the live reading because I don't think I did a particularly good job at UKAlive. This is a "studio" recording.
