Wishing the Moon

This is my first novel. Cover art by Colton Zimmerman.


Wishing the Moon is about...


It's about a world where you can have as a direct gift from the creator, any unique paranormal ability you can think of so long as no one else alive possesses it. The key words are "unique" and "alive." Read about the rules.

It's about how might makes right and what defines morality. How, when the person with the ability to remove the calcium from your bones says it's now legal to marry goats, no one argues.

It's about how awful it would be to live in a world where paranormal powers really exist, and how that would shape political struggles, religion and society. Especially for those who aren't so lucky.

And finally, it's about being careful what you wish for, because anyone can wish for the ability to visit the moon. The problem is you don't have the ability to return. That would be two abilities and that breaks the rules. So, hold your breath and enjoy the view for a little while.

The covere depicts Le Le, with her ablity to generate cold. Behind her is Valenia, master of water and member of the Council Ra-ken.

Costumes of All Nations


by
Albert Kretschmer,
and Dr. Carl Rohrbach.

 

Have you ever wondered how a Roman senator laced his sandals? Or perhaps, how Venetian ladies of rank dressed in the 13th century?  The book, Costumes of all Nations, published in 1882, delicately draws the clothes, and common items of people from ancient times up to the 19th century in fantastic detail.

An artist friend, John Bieniek loaned the book to me after reading an early copy of Wishing the Moon. I was so taken by the plates and images that I decided to photograph the book and make the drawings available to everyone.
