A Dreamer's Knight

By Michael James Wilbur All Rights Reserved ©

Fantasy / Adventure

Foreword - Through the Eyes of a Dreamer

What you are about to read is only a story. Some people feel compelled to find meaning in everything, even if there is no inner meaning to be found. It is for those people that I say again that this is only a story, nothing more, nothing less.

Many will read this and the books that follow and conclude that it is about the young knight, Mikaen. They will compare his troubled life on Earth with the struggle of individuals in any society where people are persecuted for being different. They may believe the good things that result from his arrival on Vinta are elements of Karma, or Luck, or perhaps even Fate. As this is not the case, I again say that this is only a story, nothing more, nothing less.

Others may believe this story is about the Dreamers of the Elsewhere Incorporate. Dreamers could in this instance represent the will of the Creator as they move around the mainstream spreading happiness and battling against the forces of darkness. While this is an interesting concept, Dreamers are not angels, nor would we ever want people to think of us as such. The very idea of Narrator Number Two as an angel is alarming, to say the least. This is only a story, nothing more, nothing less.

Some will think this story is about flying bunnies. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I've already had environmentalists send me glowing letters of praise for writing about flying bunnies, or 'fiona', as they are known on Vinta. There are fiona in this story, but there are also many other animals. This is only a story, nothing more, nothing less.

Perhaps the strangest of all are those who think that this tale is completely true. The events depicted within this book are indeed a part of history; some of the people who read this may even have been involved. Still, to accept the words of any history as pure truth can ultimately lead to trouble. History is only a story after all, and what has already passed is just that: the past. As such, as you read what follows, keep the following statement in mind:

This is only a story, nothing more, nothing less.

-Alan T. Tryth
