I am an author from Oregon and am currently focusing on a monthly science fiction short story series titled Eternal Nexus. I focus on saying the most that I can with the fewest words and allowing characters to come to life and speak for themselves. My intent is to write approachable science fiction that most anyone can dive into.
Come to the Nightmare
"Come to the Nightmare" is set in a universe where many figures and people from Earth's own history have been thrust together along with varying levels of technology, from the stone age to contemporary times and even beyond. The first short of this series details events surrounding an alliance between Frederick the Great of Prussia and King Karl XII of Sweden as the latter attempts to rout the two others claiming the throne of Sweden: Gustov Adolf and Erik IX.
Dan Jameson is a long time resident of Maragus. Keeping his past close to his chest he works with the Gray Army to help move refugees to safer homes away from war, genocide and slavery. Through the years Dan has developed into a living legend among the Gray Army and refugees. The decision comes down for Dan to transport a newcomer and two Gv'umr, a humanoid race of pacifists regularly enslaved by more aggressive factions, along the way he is forced to unveil his past and find renewed strength as he discovers how he's being used by those in power.
