Here’s an unadvertised FREEBIE just for my subscribers. For the next five days Oct 17 through Oct 22, I’m giving away my award winning novella, Crystal Night, a story from The Prometheus Saga.
Now if you don’t know what The Prometheus Saga is, let me explain.
In the Prometheus Saga, now releasing Volume Two, sixteen authors unite to interpret how an alien presence would interact with the human condition over a time period that spans from the dawn of man to the present. The stories cross genres and genders, allowing for entirely different narratives and insights on historical events and the human experience.
An alien civilization landed a probe on Earth at the dawn of mankind. This probe, a form of artificial intelligence, can morph into any human form, take on any human identity, either male or female. Its life spans hundreds of thousands of years. Its mission is to report everything it can about us to its home planet. What this humanoid observes and learns over centuries of human existence will be interpreted through each short story in the saga. The alien probe is as mythic as Prometheus, the Greek Titan who was said to have brought fire to mankind.
The short stories in The Prometheus Saga have won numerous awards including multiple Royal Palm Literary Awards from the Florida Writers Association in the Best Short Story category & two RPLAs for Best Novella.
BERLIN, NAZI GERMANY, 1938.
On the eve of one of history’s darkest moments, a Swedish bartender with unusual talents accidentally uncovers a woman’s hidden past while working in the heart of Nazi Germany. Crystal Night is a tale of intrigue and mystery with a twist of science fiction that follows ordinary German citizens as they struggle under the jackboots of marauding brown-shirts, the dreaded Gestapo and the infamous SS. Can the Prometheus probe as ‘Johann Nilsson’ remain detached during this ugly piece of our history, or will it become an accomplice as the Holocaust accelerates?

THE VIETNAM WAR, 1968
My newest science fiction novella from Volume Two of The Prometheus Saga. Hidden deep in the jungles of the Central Highlands, a garden of orchids with medicinal properties attracts a mysterious Chinese student. When Viet Cong guerrillas raid a nearby hamlet to steal elephants, the stranger, known by the locals as the Orchid Man, and a boy from the village are taken to the VC’s jungle camp. A large battalion from the North Vietnamese Army arrives. The camp in the rainforest is targeted by a US helicopter assault. The abducted pair become trapped in the crossfire of a brutal and deadly firefight. Many years after the battle, the involvement of the Orchid Man in the Vietnam War has created an enduring memorial in the heart of the Vietnamese jungle and left emotionally charged marks on the lives of everyone affected. A story of desperate survival in a time of conflict, as seen through the eyes of an alien.
