The universe has its own love story, and it operates by the laws of surprise— divine surprise that is, where realities are created and destroyed for reasons that humanity develops and maintains.


StoryTellers are the agents of this cosmic work, moving through spacetime to collect the Stories of the universe, and occasionally to minimally tend to the catastrophes that may occur due to intergalactic perturbations. Vaks is one of the last remaining, and he may be the last one that you would wan...

MORE MORE TIME

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, In : New Book Release 
“Max yawned and began to stretch, stopping short when the pain in his neck shot down his arm. He walked back into his room, sat on the bed, and then lay back, pulling the sheet up to his chin. He rolled over onto his left side. His head sank deep into the pillow, and he closed his eyes. The events of the day receded into the darkness. His breathing deepened and slowed as exhaustion took over. The room was quiet. A mourning dove cooed outside his bedroom window. Just as sleep was about to ov...

THE STORY OF ELAINE OF CORBENIC

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, April 24, 2015, In : New Book Release 
Corbenic's valley lay hidden, in a corner of Lystenoys close by the sea, and it was not wholly by chance that any man found his way there, including Launcelot.

It was spring when he came; the hills of the valley were verdant, the gorse yellow all about, and the evening mists fragrant.  She was not looking for love that day…

She was Elaine, daughter of the fisher king and of the lineage of the grail keepers, and the mystery of the grail, the sacred cup that lay within Corbenic's walls, was in ...

KEYS IN THE RIVER

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, August 10, 2012, In : New Book Release 


“There are keys in the river.  Life is one long river, a pretty voice sings.”

Sometime during mid-1994, I started writing essays, poems, and short stories to help me pass the O-level English exams which I had failed a couple of times in the past. I never thought I was writing pieces that would be read; rather, I began writing simply as practice for this important exam, a rite of passage to higher education in Zimbabwe.

The works, however, continued to develop and evolve, as if they were st...

Alive and Aware, Living Life as It Really Is

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, June 4, 2012, In : New Book Release 

ON MY BEHALF was never meant to be published. It was merely a journal for my venting. Nothing formal. My intent was to bring my life to light to myself and hopefully band-aid some old gaping wounds.

As I was writing, however, I had an epiphany. I thought ever-so-reluctantly: What if my story mattered to someone, even helped them to realize things about themselves that would have otherwise been swept under the rug and ignored? Wouldn’t that be worth publishing? It suddenl...

AMMON'S HORN (Savant 2011) asks implicitly:  When male verses female ego, in a case of love verses lust, which is the greater jackass?


When the threat  is a sexy little bitch ready to bring the financial world down about the world's ears, and her mentor is the god Apollo (Phoebee) in human guise; when the wager with his sister Didi (Aphrodite) says Phoebee will bed the bitch or, failing, spend a year as lackey in a Hollywood cathouse; when an army of acolytes on either side includes a scienti...

MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, In : New Book Release 

Not many people have had multiple wives AND husbands, as I have had, so MY TWO WIVES AND THREE HUSBANDS may be an eye-opener. Mae West once said to me, “I owe it all to dirty living!” and in her case, as well as mine, it’s not just funny, it’s true. That is, if “dirty” means “unconventional."

I believe people were meant to enjoy life, and I've tried to share my sense of joy, discovery and wonder in this, my love story. In addition to my human loves, I was also been ensnared by t...
