Nova Aera: A micro-novel

August 2023, Syllble Books, 114 Pages

In 2015, Nova Aera was a technological marvel, a shining city in the sky. But beneath its gleaming surface, the city was rotten to the core. The corporations and dark entities that ruled the city thrived on the suffering of the poor and working class. The government was a dying oligarchy, more interested in protecting its own interests than in helping the people.

In 2065, people began to leave the cities in search of a better life. They left behind the corruption and oppression of the old world, and set out to create a new society based on equality, reciprocity, and balance. They learned to live in harmony with nature, and developed magical abilities that allowed them to connect with the world around them.

By 2115, the people who had left the cities had created a new society that was a beacon of hope for the future. They had shown that it is possible to create a better world, one that is free from oppression and exploitation.

This book is a gripping story of hope, resilience, and the power of the human spirit. It is a must-read for anyone who believes that a better world is possible.

To be free is to have another government: another authority, an authority that wants you to meet your potential. In From Without So Within, Yvonne wants her dystopian society to meet their potential and she is dedicated to showing them where it is.

Yvonne also examines the influence that our environment can have on our mental health. Through self-discovery, love and rebellion Yvonne takes on a new sense of what it means to be Panduphorian. Once Yvonne takes on her own sense of who she is, she begins a mission to show each world what the other is like and dares them to imagine a world that is without the authorities, a world that is unified and one.

Golden Veins: Collection of Short Stories by Fabrice Guerrier

When we are faced with choices in life, sometimes we do the right thing and sometimes we do the wrong thing. We face loss like we face danger and we accept what happens always with some degree of fortitude. Whether it is our own impending death or the death of someone close, a fight to save honor or just to survive, everything we do has its own consequence.

Imagine a world where humans are drugged through the water they drink in order to pacify them. Would you adhere to the control for a more peaceful life, or rise against it?

What lengths would you go to in order to escape the racism of the 1940’s south? What dangers would you be prepared to face? Could you really change deep seated opinions and beliefs?

These stories and others are explored in Golden Veins, a collection of 10 short stories that indulge in several genres, from sci-fi and fantasy to magical realism and horror. 

Each tale carries themes such as slavery and morality that are set to challenge your thinking and opinions in ways that may surprise you, often giving a different slant on how huge historical events affect the humblest of lives or simply how one person deals with the particular hand that has been dealt.
