I tell you how much I like this? There is satire, menace, allegory, myth and fable, also some tight writing anyone would be proud to have written. It takes genuine talent to get all that stuff in a piece of writing without bashing people over the...

you could actually start from "The sun blazed". All the expository back story is a dense amount of telling about the characters. You could show a little all the way through.

and how I write (I know, we're all different) I'd keep banging these out and then edit when you've completed a narrative (arc or spiral, who cares?) This is all sufficiently intriguing for me to persevere. If Tim needs to go, get rid of him later...

When I was first posting on ABCTales (I think) BJD was around too. I know he was when I was an editor. He must have gone away for a while. Any comments, though very insightful and worth following, were sometimes really, well, not fluffy. I know...

Almost everything you do has me thinking of gothic cathedrals and mediaeval buildings. Perhaps it's the ring o' roses I hear. Nice nod to the grumpy Librarian, too.

Yep, the no-win situation of low-self esteem. "I can't be any good because...

All the best science fiction, this is our own present and reality viewed in a fun-house mirror. I'm going to read part two now. This is a great beginning. The voice is believable and distinctive. As it's 1st person POV you can get away with a...
