The Storyteller is an original book series of adventure and space exploration, which seems to answer the persistent, intriguing question present in us all: are we alone in the Universe? Are there other intelligent beings, other powerful civilizations out there? And if they are, then who or what are they? How do they look like? How are the worlds they create and inhabit, and how different are they from us?
This first book of The Storyteller series introduces a mysterious character that people call simply Arthur, Author, or the Holly One. Here is the first part of his story, including the story of his friends and loved ones.
All characters are warm and interesting, young and old, lively and full of joy. They find themselves in interesting circumstances, and they fight, struggle, succeed or fail to get out unharmed. The protagonists are either very powerful, or they are always in contact with powerful beings.
At a deeper level, embedded in the web of adventure, this book explores Life, Existence and the Universe, along with the way people, societies, and civilizations behave everywhere, forming this comprehensive, everlasting world that we experience today. Enjoy!
The most visible trace of the book is the interaction with very powerful beings, those who decide the fate of the Universe.
A stronger plot of the story relates to peoples behavior, being aliens or not, the specific way in which they react in various circumstances, always learning from their experience.
The Captain, Cathleen, takes her share of the action; she fails and succeeds throughout her adventures the way normal people do, and she learns to tame her emotions and instincts, to become more pragmatic, to cope with tougher, more demanding situations. She applies everything to her life, both on Starship Colonial and on Earth, and her achievements exceed her wildest expectations. However, her achievements are irrelevant if she does not fulfill the mission assigned to her by the people of Earth. Is her determination strong enough to fulfill it now, when she has everything she ever wanted?
Jack remains an interesting, puzzling character throughout the book, influencing unknowingly the life of many, accomplishing everything with the innocence of a child.
More characters emerge and develop from among the crew and colonists, and from the people of the worlds they encounter.
Throughout the book, and throughout this whole series, there is a hidden, consistent trace of liberation from ignorant stereotypes, cold prejudices, predetermined norms, and irrelevant ideals. As opposed to real life where the great majority of people live the way it is taught, some of the characters succeed in opening their eyes, grasping this way and understanding a wider truth. And yet at times bondage defeats freedom and they have to accept it helplessly, which makes for the credible, real, complex plot of the book. Enjoy!
greatest moment of Dr. Spencer's life would be a death sentence if he told what
he and some other scientists were working on in a secret underground
governmental facility called XJ7. Rumor has it that Dr. Spencer and a team of
scientists were working on reverse engineering on a UFO that crash landed on a
farm about twenty-five miles from the XJ7 facility. It wasn't the Government
that these scientists had to fear it was the aliens that were recovered from
the crash site about keeping it secret.
As the days passed by and
progress was made on their reverse engineering experiment, Dr. Spencer wanted
to tell his friends and family, but couldn't shake off what the Alien told him
at the crash site. The Alien said "If any words of this rolls off your
tongue you will vanish without a trace."
That was enough to shut any
man up, but as time passes most every human has to tell someone their secret
because it makes them feel like something that important needs to be told to
the world. Dr. Spencer had a big ego, and after weeks of keeping his mouth shut
he decided to tell his wife what he and his colleagues were working on when he

In this third installment of the Kael Jai series, the unknown enemy Kael faced in book two has been unmasked. Now Kael Jai knows the name of his enemy, but that doesn’t make his battle any easier. In this action-packed book, Kael struggles to keep his newly formed government together while protecting the people of his planet. Two of his best warriors are still stuck on Earth, and the virus that has crippled their technology has cut off all communication with them. Kael has no idea if they are even still alive. He sends two warriors to Earth to find them and, if they are still alive, to bring them home. When Aniya finally returns with Eva and Sam, she does not bring good news. Kael learns that he is not fighting just one enemy but many, and worst of all, Sylph has vanished. Kael must now fight to save his loyal Keeper, and his planet, from one of the most deadly assassins Trinoor has ever known.
When the adults volunteer to fight for their country and get ready to board the last few ships leaving Earth for the depth of space, Jim comes up with a plan that will allow him to enlist despite his young age. But that’s only the beginning of his space adventure, and nothing ever really goes as one hopes for.
Jim doesn’t even imagine the epic journey in store for him, and what a terrible curse a soldier’s duty can be. But he’ll learn along the way. He’ll learn that, at times, things can be different from what they look on the surface—and that a trustworthy friend can always be found, wherever you least expect it.
It’s a military space opera of about 150,000 words.
