Wow, today is the feast of St. Mark, a very fitting day on which to make this announcement:
The second installment of my great Saga, De Bellis Stellarum, is now available!
It is called The Black Hole in the Basement, and you can obtain it here.
Just in case you would like to know a little about one of the major fountains of my inspiration for Quayment in general and Weaver's in particular, please visit here to see more about the great Loome Theological Booksellers, the used bookstore housed in a former church in a small town called Stillwater, Minnesota...
Thus, when you read in The Black Hole in the Basement about how a certain "Doctor in Pennsylvania" inquires about a book
by Martène... well, that bit wasn't fiction. And no, I did not ever get the book, because they weren't able to locate it...
Which is a good thing, because if they had, it is almost certain that none of this would have happened.
But if you are curious about whether Loome's has a black hole in their basement, that is beyond my ability to answer.
Note: I have no connection with Loome's except as a VERY satisfied customer, and a friend of some of those who make things happen there. I am sure you will find it so should you visit or do business with them.

Annuntio gaudium magnum...
The story called
The Wreck of the PHOSPLOION
that is, the long-awaited
edition of the introduction to the great Saga
De Bellis Stellarum
has been released!
You can buy it here.
The next installment, called The Black Hole in the Basement, is already in the works, and will come out soon, God willing - and there's LOADS more to come. Fresh, exciting, cool adventure - in the line of the old "Boys’ Books" enjoyed by Chesterton - built to exacting medieval standards (which are FAR HIGHER and TOUGHER than those of the 21st century) using a vast array of literary inspirations united with over 30 years of experience in computer science and software development... Wow, and not only that, it's fun to write, and even more fun to read, as well as pointing in the One Direction That Matters.
But for now, I must get back to the writing.
You see, "Someone has to do the hard jobs."
See you in Quayment!
