Like Sci-Fi? Read My New Online Fiction Series.

Do you like Sci-Fi? While I finish up my next novel, I have started an online fiction series called Forbearance. Picking up from the canteen scene in Bellicose, we meet Keius Minjen, a postal marine, as he tries to survive the battle planet Guna to exact revenge and one day liberate his homeland.


Sign-up if you want me to send you news about upcoming installments of Forbearance or my other writings.

During the High Imperium, as the Tawmerik Dynasty failed, it became quite the rage to study human history and archaeology. Unfortunately, it was also a time of patronage, and archaelogical and historical research was often sponsored by a patrician family with certain political aims or goals in mind. Particularly popular was the writing of “grand histoires”, often with a coauthor of the patonizing family. Much misinformation was generated, or perhaps it wasn’t we just don’t know. However, we do know that later scholarship, particularly archaelogy on Earth and on Fasantauri, has discredited many of the works of this time period.

Chief, most famous, and most infamous among these works is Human History by R. B. Muzgersun. A sycophant of unparallelled, talent Muzgersun managed to get his history accepted as a standard primary educational work on many of the Imperial worlds. His often fictional accounts have become embedded in the popular conception of human history, often overwhelming the true obscurity of the past. In particular, his ridiculously detailed stories of figures like Kazam-Re, L. R. Helsmunt and the Helsmunt Institute, Phurnando Letalles and Hugau-bmilanoj Stepivan Shersite d’Mibashura, and groups like the Imudring still color much scholarly work today.

Fortunately, Muzgersun did not stop there. Working to establish an even firmer grip on the intellectual life of the empire, he inadvertantly created the environment for later intellectual advancement. As an imperially appointed president, he helped bring about major changes in the Librarian Society that made it far more effective as a venue of scholarly discourse and recognition. He also garnered much funding for rennovation and upgrades at the Galactic Library Of Language And Culture.

Somehow, his skills failed him by the end of his life. Even as his textbooks were being distributed as “official” history on dozens of worlds, he was arrested and eventually disappeared into the horrible murder and injustice of the Engle Pogroms.
