Another novella! (And a few minor updates)

So it seems at this point; I’ll do anything to avoid revision work . . . which means I’m pretty much writing away on anything that isn’t my book.

After a short foray into science fiction, my feet are once again planted in the world of Noman. It all began as a joke with a friend, who has these scrabble pieces on his fridge. Every time I’m visiting, I’m playing around with those things, to the point of absurdity. Long story short, I wrote down eleven silly names, and then said I’d write a short-story about them. And then I did. This time, we follow the life of a young boy named Theden, who after a certain string of events, has the sudden urge not to die. It’s a tale of love, revenge and all those classic clichés, with a heavier Greek tragedy flavor than anything I’ve written. (Click the book to read . . . you know how this works.)

Happy reading, and be sure to leave me some feedback in the comments, whether you like the novella or not! (Minor updates follows below)

One Thousand

Another short-story is up and running.

This one is set in The Valley of a Thousand Snakes, far west in Noman. Seld Griffiths, a braham (outisder) is trying to prove his worth with the Akash Brotherhood, crafting explosives and duelling. It turns out he is far better extracting poison from Snakes, though. Things complicate when Seld starts sleeping with Prince Iben, who’s to be married to the beautiful Alyssha in only four short weeks.

It’s a good thing he’s comfortable around snakes…

Breaking in Twa

One of my first short-stories is done with all the revamping and editing necessary, and is now available on this very page. It’s eighteen pages long, and follow Michael and Cassandra as they search for a mystical device in the dark and all-engulfing underforest. No one has set foot down there in hundreds of years, and the forest doesn’t seem to enjoy their presence. Still; they’ll need to persevere if they want to un-end the world.

Coming soon!

Well, I’ve finally made my way onto the internet. As you’ve probably guessed, my name is Robert Bishop; and I’m the creator of The Fall of Noman series. For the past four years I’ve been working on “Awakenings”, the first book in the series. The book is currently going through its second revision, and I plan to post chapters here for feedback once I’m done. I’ve also been writing drafts for part two – “Frostbites” and part three – “A Hole in the World”.
In addition, I’ve written several short stories, among them, “Breaking in Twa”, which will be made available on this very site soon.
