Tom Callaghan For Akyl, Aizat, and Kairat No change. No exit. A minor flaw. You diebut start up once more. It all repeats, just as before. Aleksandr Blok Chapter 1 We uncovered the last of the dead children in the red hour before dusk, as the sun stained the snowcaps of the Tien Shan mountains the color of dried blood and the spring air turned sharp and cold. Seven small bundles, tightly swaddled in plastic bags, all buried in a hurry, just a few inches under the soil. They lay huddled together ...

But the characters exist only in the imagination of the author and are not based upon any real persons. They are delineated as they are for purely literary reasons.

Paul Gallico The Snow Goose With drawings by Anne Linton The Great Marsh lies on the Essex coast between the village of Chelmbury and the ancient Saxon oyster-fishing hamlet of Wickaeldroth. It is one of the last of the wild places of England, a low, far-reaching expanse of grass and reeds and half-submerged meadowlands ending in the great saltings and mud flats and tidal pools near the restless sea. Tidal creeks and estuaries and the crooked, meandering arms of many little rivers whose mouths ...

P. J. Mann AQUILA ET NOCTUA Foreword This novel is a work of fiction however, there are historical references to a particular period, and some clarification has to be made. The novel starts with the end of the third Jewish war 135 CE. In 70 CE, Jerusalem had been completely sacked by Emperor Vespasians eldest son Titus. The Romans wrapped up a horrifyingly bloody suppression of the Second Jewish Revolt ca. 66 CE, which ended in 73 CE at the final siege at Masada. The city was razed to the ground ...

This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents either are the product of the authors imagination or are used fictitiously. As you might have guessed, Rex and Leif are based on us as teenagers and Bleak Creek is loosely based on our hometown of Buies Creek. And Ben is a tribute to a very close friend. Otherwise, the rest of the book is strictly a result of our wild imaginings. If there is any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead or undead, events, or locales, it is ...

Thankfully for me he chose to set his brilliant novels elsewhere, though he did once write a scabrous short story about the city. That story was called The Unnatural History Museum. We found ourselves discussing it and Philips equivocal feelings towards his birthplace one night in September 2015. We were in Edinburgh, having just driven there from Stirling, where my onstage interview with ...
