Welcome to ‘Nowhere’

“DO WHAT YOU CANNOT DO. SEE WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE. EXPLAIN WHAT YOU CANNOT EXPLAIN.” I remember watching the movie series – The Matrix Trilogy – almost two decades ago. If you watched similarly-themed futuristic motion flicks, you might have marveled at the scope and reach of man’s mind. But the amazing thing is that these technologies have refused to simply remain within the confines of science fiction novels and movies. They’ve proven to be prophetic. Do...

“The Pearl Territory”, chapter 5

Reminder: A group of six (Pain, Bou, Mimo, Alma, Ichi and Goe) has been send to Pearl, the ninth planet. Humans (both advanced and primitive) hope to find a new planet suitable for living and breathing outside. #privatejournal – Alma My name comes from the Latin word almus, which means “kind.” It may also be from the Greek word αλμη, which means “salt water.” Or, maybe Portuguese – “The Spirit Soul”. I’d like to think about myself...

The day will happen… whether you get up or not

“If you have ever come up against Nothing you have no idea how it can scare you out of your wits. When I was a child I used to be afraid of Something in the dark. I know now that the most fearful thing about the dark is that we may find Nothing in it.” Howard Spring Ray’s day in pictures: Sharing the table of contents from my upcoming book “So Absurd It Must Be True”:...

‘Eleven’ don’t lie

What’s so special about the number 11, you might wonder. Read on and you just could be finding out.

So why not sit tight and grab a bowl of popcorn. Or eleven bowls, if you...

“Dulcinea Lovinescu – the code girl”

Meet Dulcinea and Erik, the heroes of my book The Dulcinea Project (46,000 words). This is a second edit. I’m planning to edit one more time – in February – and then send to proofreading/copy editing in March. This book, book 1 in a series, will be published at the beginning of April. I’m planning to publish book 2 in the series in April, 2020. Genre: Young adult, adventure, fantasy There’s zero sex/erotica in this book, which...

The Last To Fall

As you know, I’m writing “The Pearl Territory” only because I saw Pain with her team in my sleep – like a dream – and I usually don’t see any dreams. I had to share it and I think the story is going to be BIG. And crazy. In a good sci-fi way. “I had a dream, which was not all a dream.” Lord Byron Why am telling you that? Because I saw a dream. Again....

Almost ready!

Sharing the book cover for my “Absurd Stories”. It’s simple, black and white, kinda minimalistic, but with a lot of details. I still have to format the text… and then – publish.  I scheduled 5 posts. I’ll get back 15-16 January with a new blogging plan for two weeks ahead (will be posted on the page ‘About Ray’) and chapter 5, “The Pearl”.  Next post, today – Book Review “The Silent Dead”
