Description

When my children were very young I would read to them most nights using a well-known tranche' of fairy tales as the basis for the stories. All too soon there were no stories left to tell. The only alternative was to create my own stories. To my great surprise the children loved them. One story in particular appealed and after numerous iterations, formed the basis of this particular series of novels. To make the most of this story I would encourage readers to clear their minds of all things possible and try to imagine a most mysterious and wondrous place. The planet was positioned in the slipstream of where two massive galaxies collide; the unimaginable forces at work causing gravity, space and time to behave in the most unbelievable manner, creating the art of the possible from the realms of the impossible. It's within this unique, volatile environment our tale is set; known to 'astroquants', (inter-galactic space travellers to you and me) as the 'Void Perpetual'. The planet is called Noov and Noovians are completely oblivious of their planet's rare position in the Void Perpetual. Indeed they would say their world was the epitome of peace and harmony, with a climate so perfect, the subject of weather is never discussed; there would be no need! Even the most common courteous phrases, such as, "Nice day isn't it!," or "turned out Nice today," would have no meaning at all on Noov. Anyone viewing Noov from a vantage point deep in space would not share the Noovians idyllic description. For a start, it has two suns around which it orbits; mini black holes abound, enticing anything and everything in their path to enter with no promise of a safe return; whole planets seem to appear, disappear then reappear in different astronomic locations, with no sense of timing or logic! On Noov itself, weird and wonderful creatures abound; strange, worldly wise inhabitants who reputedly live for an eternity; no evidence of life beginning and no sight of life at an end! And, because of Noov's unique position in time and space, individuals who hold the right 'key', or who stumble accidentally in the right place and at the right time, find they are able to move between distant worlds through invisible, inter-dimensional openings .... 'magical' gateways by any other name. This is the setting to this particular series of adventures, which centres on a sinister secret and the struggle for a whole community to come to terms with its past, deal with the present and fear for its future. Central to this and future tales is one family, who cannot and will not accept the cards that fate has dealt them. The adventures highlight the strong bond between family and friends and like an emotional roller coaster, will transport you from the dizzy heights of utter joy to the very depths of despair. Join with me if you are inclined and share the wonders of this particular tale with the unique people on Noov.show more
