The Prometheus Saga Anthology

Earlier this year the author consortium known as The Alvarium Experiment published its first series of unique short stories called The Prometheus Saga. Each award winning author wrote and published their stories independently around a central premise:


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.

This series of stories was received with great enthusiasm by critics & readers. Four of the stories were recipients of this year’s Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Awards:
“Lilith,” by Antonio Simon, Jr., won 1st Place for Published Short Story.
“The Pisces Affair,” by Daco Auffenorde, won 3rd Place for Published Short Story.
“Manteo,” by Elle Andrews Patt, won 3rd Place for Published Novella.
“The Strange Case of Lord Byron’s Lover,” by Parker Francis, won 1st Place in General Category, and was also 1st Runnerup for Published Book of the Year.

Readers clamored for publication of the entire set as a complete anthology and the Alvarium authors obliged.

As an author, my overactive imagination fills my mind with three dimensional puzzles of stacked what-if questions that cry out for answers. You can find me fueling my creativity amidst the chaos of a very busy life in my writer’s den where I dream up whimsical adventures that range from the satirical to the macabre which I then blog about on
