Blissfully blinded by the loping of Pan
twister of the cankerous root and
evoker of too-steady loins -
Come up shrieking, angels and devils of light!
The path is illumined by the lasting spheres
of kindled vision and apotheosis -
The ores of hell flow in my tangled veins.
Who cares for the scorched wing
or the well-trimmed ego?
Burst forth both laughing and weeping
and the bedrock of Far Arden
will crack beneath your tread.

-To awake from the dream is to stride in glorious awareness through the landscape of waking nightmare. Sweet wakefulness, torment and progenitor! The eyes that never flutter will be perpetually speared on burning iron rods.-

Free Giveaway of The Mask of Tamrel - July 20th to July 24th!

Greetings all! It delights me to announce that, from July 20th to July 24th, the 'Mask of Tamrel' is going to be absolutely, utterly, 100% free on Kindle. If you know anyone who you think would enjoy a dark/epic fantasy romp, please let them know - also taking out a Booksy ad to spread the word.

A colossal thanks to everyone who has already read 'Tamrel' and provided their insights; the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Work on 'In the House of Madame Heretia' is nearing completion - currently on the final read-through/edit. Expect the second volume of The Magistricide in late September or early October, in correspondence with the flaming of the leaves and the crow's plutonian flight.

Peace with the exception of generative conflagration,
