Introduction: A small message for you, the reader…

When I was a young boy, about 6 or 7, my dream was to be a scientist and an author. I believe that writers like to tell stories with characters that mirror what they wish they had become or who they would like to be; this is certainly true in my own writing. This book is a dedication to those dreams and that passion. I believe what makes a true scientist, is the continual pursuit of knowledge and rational thinking. It has nothing to do with an inflation of ego, but everything to do with evidence, humbleness, and hard work.

I wrote this book in the hope that I could create one solid story involving: science, horror, fantasy, romance, and supernaturalism, all coming back to a truth we all try to shy away from: the inevitability of death. I had my doubts in writing this, worrying who would like it and who would not, but at the end of the day, you have to love your own art and if you are proud of it, then that’s all that matters, right? Having said that, of course I hope you love it, as I have loved writing it!

I have so many people to thank for supporting me over the years as I wrote this and I love you all. As Kevin Smith said, “Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering. A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the cartoon you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life. If you discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever.”

I hope these words will resonate with you, as they have for me. I could ramble on forever, so I will stop. I hope you enjoy: “Death is Nothing, When Considered.”

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King. The author will keep you engrossed until the very end and by that time you will feel so strongly for Clara and the other characters that you will never want it to end...like ever. Thrandu...

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. In this story characters are introduced and developed allowing you to really get into them. Next the story is develop...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
