“Free people don’t live in cubicles!” —Big Richie before he caught the wave that ended his life.
Some people just knew how to go out in style. Tim had never been one of those guys. Tim was always a planner. The plan was to get into college, graduate, and find a well-paying job. That plan was coming together nicely until he saw a presentation to get paid to play The Etheric Coast. At his graduation ceremony. After watching the company’s employee recruitment video, Big Richie’s words had a whole new meaning. He could spend his life going from a cubicle at work to a one-bedroom apartment and back again… Or he could take a leap of faith by entering a virtual world of unlimited possibilities. And get paid.
A lot of religions and traditions had some kind of “other” world, a primeval world, unmarred and unstained by human corruption. In the Judeo-Christian tradition it was the Garden of Eden. For the Druids and Celts it is Annwn. For Louisiana vodouisants it is Guinee. All of the Gates of Eden books are based on a particular mythological or spiritual tradition. While the magical systems are fictional, they are based on rites, lore, and mythologies unique to these traditions.
There is a lot of overlap between traditions in these books–what the Druids call one thing, the Voodoo Mambos call something else. There may be many “Gates,” but ultimately there is one Eden, one Annwn, one Guinee. One humanity.Enjoy This Deal
Humans think he’s a freak, he just wants answers about his past… but answers are hard to find in a world that’s slowly drifting into chaos. As a child, Veric saw his parents burned alive by dragonfire. All they left him is a mysterious box with a broken symbol. Over twenty years later, he still doesn’t know what’s inside the box.
To understand his heritage, he must retrieve a magic orb that is buried deep under the mountain. There are many obstacles on the way: a storm, hungry orcs, visions, a lunatic centaur… but, most of all, he is forced to face his greatest fear, at the peril of his own life. “Of Dragon Bones and Ashen Tears” is the first episode in a 12-part high fantasy series that veers progressively into epic.
