The Empyraeum Collections; a gathering of poetry and short story. Introductions to the world of The Empyraeum, the world where Alexander was not just Great but he was Eternal. Explorations of three to four distinct worlds, timeframes and storylines which, as the series progresses, turn out to be one story, linked in the least expected of ways. Essential reading before the Novellas! No spoilers as such, they just make more sense that way. Are you ready for the most complex web or tales you have seen in a long time?
Collections Alpha; The Wondering Wanderer - Collected Worlds
A collection of poetry and short story beginning the journey into a world where Alexander the Great never died but went on to become immortal and conquer the entire world;
1) Embodied; in a string of natural disasters following the 1,500th anniversary of Alexander's disappearance, something truly sinister is occurring. At each catastrophe, a mysterious figure is seen emerging from the chaos as if a part of it.
2) Seeker; What does the Seeker seek? In a far corner of the galaxy, the mysterious passengers have a much deeper secret than any on the Belmorrah can imagine.
3) Trinity; in the background of all out war around Earth two mysterious beings try to learn how to deal with a too fast-changing world in the depths of terrible grief.
The very start of a complexly interlocking series of characters and events which cross time and space throughout the period of 2,000 years during which Alexander went unexplainedly absent. Weaving together with poetry to tell one larger tale.
Collections Beta; The Wakeful Dreamer and Other Journeys
The second in the series of collected works set in The Empyraeum Universe, a world where the Boy King did not die in Babylon but somewhere in the Himalayas discovered immortality;
"I watched Alexander die in Babylon, I filed past his bed as he breathed is last with the rest of his army; that iconic moment really took place but then, it did not. I remain immortal and have watched what you would consider Modern Western Civilisation come to be. I met Caesar, I met Jesus the Nazarene on the Via Dolorosa before he was crucified ( I was that roman soldier), I fought in many of your wars, I smashed down the gates as we liberated concentration camps and saw unspeakable horrors. I watched your world become and also that it never was; I have lived in both worlds. I have lived as a lost, wayward immortal without answers or purpose and I have stood beside the man who united the world - from sunrise to sunset - into one Hegemonic whole."
