Creating Worlds (using as few words as possible)

Come meet a woman so audacious she became an author! Come, marvel at her combinations of sounds and syllables so symphonic they supply simply sumptuous stories! This is wicked Wendy Nikel, the wizard of words who creates worlds out of imagination and yarn! She’s produced two novels (one of which I discuss here), and you should heed her words!

And here she gives us her best words on creating worlds… words I might myself stick under my tall, tall hat and use! You see, this Nikel knows of what she speaks! She may even know more than me! (She probably does, but don’t tell anyone!)

Without further ado… Wendy Nikel! Continue reading “Creating Worlds (using as few words as possible)”

Good Samaritan

Ah, no tours today! Well, no talking about tours. Instead, why not visit another world with me? Yes, actually leave the confines of the Midway and soar to another place! Dare you? Dare you come with me? Ah, but this world is not my own!

This is part of a larger world, termed “Bible A.D.” by its astounding creator, one Lydia Eberhardt. Why I, this very showman you see before you, knew her long ago. Well, not long ago. She’s not that old! (And neither am I. Stop laughing, kid.) But now she weaves worlds with words, casting spells across your imagination, and yes! You get to taste her newly-created earth right here! Yes, we on the Midway would never want you going away hungry or claiming we weren’t treating you fair! By my tall, tall hat, allow me to show you the superlative work of that alluring Lydia! 

You can visit her world yourself in Ruth A.D., and Esther A.D. But like a magnificent magician, she has not one world up her sleeve, but many! Check out Beast or Global Warning for more.

But now, step behind the curtain! Come, come! See what world this creator has conjured, savor its sweetness, and try for something a little old, a little borrowed, but brand new all at once… Continue reading “Good Samaritan”

One Earth: Slightly Used

Course you’re not the only one buying worlds! Why, plenty of fancy, big-name people buy worlds! We’re all looking for a new one, after all! Why, look here, it’s the incorrigible Anne Clare, the Neat-O Naptime Author.

Yes, kid. Neat-O.

Get away from me, kid. You bother me.

Well, enough from me. Read the words of another satisfied customer who buys worlds! Or maybe one specific world. One that’s… slightly used. I’ll let Anne take it away.


Hey buddy, you look lost. What outfit are you with—you one of the new guys from the 36th?

Ah. Oh no. He got you too, huh?

Well, welcome. Settle in. Yeah, I know, it’s muddy. You’ll get used to it. Continue reading “One Earth: Slightly Used”
