about me

Writing free fiction,
That is: "free" as in freedom,
And "free" as in beer.

Reading books is nice,
But writing them is better.
Haikus are fun things.

Stories About Things

Aelius Blythe

Thoughts and memories and stranger things....

Stories About Things is a collection of very short stories about... things. ~~~~ Death preserved forever in drops of maple syrup – a name just out of reach – a bear’s growl – a door that leads to… nowhere, and a man who walks through it. ~~~~ These are the stories of things: some just this side of reality, some just that side of… somewhere else.


Skyland 1: Abominations

Aelius Blythe

Nine ships are a dying planet's last hope. But flying is an affront to the heavens and the Sky Reverends will not allow it.

Destroying the ships–the abominations that fly into the holy Sky–is a great honor, one Harper would gladly give his life for. The Sky Reverends instill in their followers one lesson: the Sky is sacred and flying is an affront to the Heavens. Raised by a Reverend, Harper Fields learned to obey and agree.

But he doesn't agree. Not really. And in one daring moment he chooses not to obey¬–instead, boarding the ship he was meant to destroy.

Just read Snow White, what a unique presentation. I especially love this line: "The only thing you can trust is what you see in your mirror." Will be reading the rest promptly... view book

First of all, thank you very much for the in-depth commentary on The Haven! Now, onto my impressions of Traveler... What I like about the beginning, what made me keep reading it was the juxtaposition of the mystical-sounding message appearing an iPad instead of ye olde yellowed parchment or we... view book

You have a really nice voice. Only read the first chapter so far, but it's going on my shelf and I swear I'll come back for the rest of it soon! view book

Somewhat intriguing. Different age for a protag - 13 is in between the normal choices - but different is interesting. The story's moving **fast** at this point, and fast is good, but hopefully some more about the main character will come out. Sometimes speed sacrifices characterization. I'... view book

I like this. Interesting images. I didn't finish reading, so I'll come back as soon as I get a moment. Only one thing for now: the tense switches (past-present) are a little awkward. If a book's not in present tense, it feels weird to have a line all of a sudden switch to it (outside of di... view book
