LEERA (2013)

A few years ago I had an idea for a novel. It was an epic sci-fi post-apocalyptic time travel story that – done the way I had originally imagined – would have taken at least a few hundred pages.  However, I was already knee deep into my work on AGARA and the thought of diving into another huge project was not appealing. Well, that and the fact that I’d long given up on the idea of writing prose fiction. Why? I don’t know. Confidence, maybe.Really though, it had a lot to do with my own mental state at the time. Constant panic attacks are not good for big projects. Especially ones that necessitate a lengthy revising process.

So I decided to make an experiment of it and challenge myself to distill it down to its most essential elements and tell the story as quick as possible. The result was an 11 page future-shocker  comic somewhat reminiscent  of Golden Age adventure comics of the 1930s and 40s. It wound up being printed in a British anthology  but -until now- never made its way onto the internet.

Maybe one day I’ll go back and flesh it out. Make it something more substantial. In the mean time, here it is.

There’s this question…

…that someone spoke to me in a dream when I was about sixteen years old:

“What side of time are you on?”

I still don’t know what that means. It was either a message from an entity from beyond the fourth dimension or it was nothing at all. I thought I could use that to segue into the subject of the “New Year” but it seemed to just go nowhere. Ah well, such is life. A wise man once told me; “Aim for the stars, land in the trees.”

So here we are, in the trees with no complaints.
