Alas, the Folly of Man Sci Fi Featured Novel Feb 2005

An anthology of tales on the struggles of individuals within societies. It could be a small group of revolutionaries fighting for their ideals. The survivors of some apocalypse seeking to rebuild civilization, or just survive. What if history had gone differently and now the old nobility found themselves along with the fae creatures redundant in the modern steampunk world of corporate greed? Or it could be one small girl run away from home and just trying to survive to see tomorrow. These are the stories of those who must fight down their own roads as worlds swirl uncaring around them.

We accept the laws of man and civilization as the natural order of things. Taking for granted that enforcement of those rules will be made by the millions inhabiting planet earth. But what happens when those millions are gone? Are simply too busy to care? Or no longer have the power? When your thousand people need what the hundred strangers across the river won't share? Or when you stand alone against twelve who value your shoes more than your life?

Welcome to the new natural order of Alas, the Folly of Man.

An application will automatically appear when you add/create a character for the novel. Please be sure to indicate which storyline location the character is for.

The following areas are open:

St. Alphonso's:

Centered on the Niagara River of North America is a modern civilization of city-states gathered together under the Great Lakes Confederation. The aristocracy is different, having limited powers of regeneration from a genetic mutation. When aristocrat unions produce 'freaks', fast regenerating but sterile near immortals, they are sent to the Society of Justice to be trained as healers or warriors.

Twist Barbie:

An alternative steampunk history where a strange Atlantic Ocean island chain connects the many lands of the fae to humankind's 21st century. Here the nobility never faced revolution & overthrow while nation-states never emerged to topple them. Instead of great wars as the industrial ages advanced corporate greed slowly, if respectfully, pushed that nobility aside. While as much as possible doing their best to assimilate or just ignore the creatures of fables who also find themselves increasingly out of place in the world of PDA's, electronic banking, and multinationals.

The War:

One person's tale of personal struggle during the fall of the American empire. Set against a background of war and strife as the United States no longer finds its positions unchallenged in the world. Nor even its own borders sacrosanct. A runaway as a teen who tries to run from the new American war along its southern border. Only to find that same war her one best hope of escape. Can she find a way to ever run from what follows?


Mouse Adams Sci Fi Featured Character Feb 2005

Once again Texas has become a country unto itself... Don't Mess With Texas! The people here are as diverse as Texas is large. Portions of Texas have maintained a high standard of technology thus having a fairly good lifestyle. Other areas have a hardscrabble way of life and can barely survive from season to season. There is a great deal of mistrust between the "Haves" and the "Have Nots".
