Forest Path

Leanne stood beside Barry and Greg in the entrance room, all of them dressed in the same white long sleeved tunic, that came down to their knees with a series of five buttons down the front. The room was washed in a white light and highly polished white walls and floor. They faced three air locks that took them out to the outside. The area around just outside this room led the arena of Mayors. Each new Mayor was chosen through this process, all applicants where put to the test and those that survived and came out victorious became the next Mayor. Leanne’s family had won the challenge five times in a row. Barry and Greg were her challengers selected from the population that the computer had selected as either a potential mate or as a replacement. “This challenge will determine your fitness […]

Change of thoughts

Hi guys, Thank you so much for staying with me for now a whole year. I have played around with a lot of different themes and ideas to carry this blog forward. My purpose was to showcase my writing and to help people come to discover my writing. I read a lot of blogs and research constantly trying to discover the best way to build readership and to let it be known that I have great works of fiction for people to discover. I came across a post that talked about the blogs that most authors do, they pitch a this is how I write and give out tips to other inspiring authors. Which is great there is certainly a market for that. I myself have learnt a lot from these sites, but that is not what I want to do. I want […]

Sparking Imagination Again

I remain quite impressed by the artist Lisana Gabriella‎ especially her work in the Science Fiction genre. This weeks images, featured to the left, depicts a cyborg woman sitting on her bed surrounded by computers and guns. Apart from being strikingly beautiful this woman has, like before raised many questions. As I mentioned in an earlier post, here, questions can lead the imagination down some incredible paths. The discussion around this particular picture mentioned the obligatory amazement at the artists work and skill. A few dared to talk about the fact that she had a collection of guns not just on the wall but on the bed with her. What struck me was that she was connected to either the computer or the gun by two wires that came out of her lower arm. Both her arms and seem to be mechanical in nature however at the joining of skin to machine it seems rather smooth, […]

Sparking your imagination

There are some great artists out there. I am always amazed at the mind of an artist. I came across Lisana Gabriella while on Facebook and the caption that she put on it really triggered off a series of great questions in mind. Lisana said that the picture depicted space faring amazons. My first question was would space faring amazons really look like that? For starters they are naked, the buildings in the background are domes that are strengthened by honeycomb struts. Two answers sprung into my mind, space is cold but without wind resistance the shape of the buildings would matter little, if they were the landing craft. Another idea sprung to my mind, what if they where not space farers, but these where the amazons at home, they are most certainly alien. It could be that they the women are those […]
