Daimones “On the Gods and the World”

Daimones is not your usual post-apocalyptic story. It has been a disturbing read for many readers, but for a vast larger group of discerning readers it has been quite a discovery.

The trilogy has sold in excess of 10,000 copies to date. Maybe you’ll be one more after this post?

Happy reading


Daimones (The Daimones Trilogy Book 1)


“These things never happened, but they are always.”


Deorum naturae neque factae sunt; quae enim semper sunt, numquam fiunt: semper vero sunt.



TIME REPORTED LARGE numbers of animals deaths, from thousands of birds found lifeless in two U.S. states in the deep South, to the one hundred thousand dead fish in arid locations such Arkansas.

Strange deaths had caused alarm among naturalists and environ- mentalists in all nations. Birds fell dead from the sky. Fish washed up on shores and rivers across the whole planet. People, however, had other things to care and worry about. Mainstream media focused on economic crises, financial scandals, sovereign states at risk of defaulting in the Euro zone, the Arab Spring, and the global war on terror.

The link was there. We were the sapient species on earth, clever enough to connect the dots no matter how far apart they were. We should have done our job to connect them. But we were too busy, too preoccupied with other facts to ask ourselves: What the hell is happening?

Nature’s red flags went unnoticed and animals—scores of them— kept dying. We kept living our own lives…

Do Not Stand By My Grave And Weep Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in […]

Form Versus Function

The unreadable book. It is always the unreadable that occurs. —Oscar Wilde, The Decay of Lying  People toss around the word unreadable a lot—invariably about something they have, by definition, read, at least in part. By “people,” I specifically mean people who read for a living, or part of it. It’s one of those conversation enders, a condemnation […]

The Self-Published Writer’s Hubris


I understand… Sometimes we should just raise shoulders, and move on. But sometimes it is just a tough one. One aspect of self-publishing that really ruffles me up—and it does so because it hurts all independent authors—is the oddball writer who has quite a peculiar vision of what entails publishing, being read, and the care and sweat […]

The Technology of Trailokya ~ By K. Williams

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 11.30.52

Technological advances usually follow a need based origin. Rarely is anything created simply because it can be. In the hit television show Star Trek, we see this theory carried out. The tech used on the ships and in the lives of the character all have purpose. So, creating a world where sci-fi roots are overshadowed […]

Of Godlike Power – Mack Reynolds

In Of Godlike Power, Mark Reynolds quipped on the consumer society (at the time of the novel, they used to call it “affluent society”) by placing in his bulls-eye the organization of work and leisure time—thus also of culture—in the capitalist system, its inequities and absurdities, the squandering of resources, brain, and so on. This “critique” is conducted by […]
