The Red World trilogy is myth-fantasy. It tells the tale of the fall and rise of an ancient kingdom on the Red Planet, long, long ago. Gods, power struggles, battles and adventure await! If a culture of antiquity could have existed on the Red Planet, if it ever had atmosphere and water and greenery, the land of Hybron would be its Mesopotamia, the very center of all its civilizations. The story spans many years, starting from the birth of a very old prophecy and the many people caught up in its wake to its epic conclusion. This series borrows influences from Dune and the Bible.

My poetry books are short, usually 10-12 poems per book. I especially love to write about nature, emotion and city dwelling. With a little mysticism. My favorite poets and inspirations are Walter De La Mer, Langston Hughes and W. H. Auden.
My first poetry book, written from 1990 - 2000:

SHORT FICTION (fantasy, weird and science fiction)
Every now and then I get an idea for a short story or a small book of fables or tales. I enjoy reading folk tales and fairy tales and mythology and my own fairy tales are shaped and influenced by these old stories. Every now and then I get an idea to write a fantasy or sci-fi short. Character, mood and setting and the natural environment are themes I like to write about. I often give my short stories away for free, at least for a limited time.
