Novels. After Shock One. After Shock Two. A look at what happens after the Big One. How do people deal with such an enormous loss?
When I first embarked on my first story about these remarkable people, they were not on the surface, but heading towards the Center of the Earth. On a mission to find and eliminate the source of the Big One, an earthquake so devastating that it struck down all the major cities of the world.
The story followed a team of Special Forces who bravely go into the interior of the earth, not even sure if they will find a way inside, let alone a way to their goal. Brave men and women dedicated to discovering the truth and righting the wrongs that were cast upon our fair earth and its people.
We followed their trek into the interior, pursued by the knowledge that the Earth soon would face a life extinguishing quake if they didn't reach their goal.
Enroute they face sabotage, monsters that shouldn't exist, alien forces that are remarkable in their savagery and cunningness.
But even in the midst of so much destruction and sabotage, they find a measure of friendship that endures the ongoing challenges of their mission.
Four stories into the trek, the brave team has lost friends, faced death, been wounded, and faced a dark and horrible ending beyond the love of the ones they left behind.
By the fifth story, two of the Special Forces have been lost, and are supposedly dead, but it turns out they have survived, unknown to their friends. In their saga they face certain death and a friendship totally unexpected and unusual in any and all ways.
And still the story moves on, following the Special Forces as they continue on what has become to them a trail of death into the unknown.
But in my newer stories, After Shock One, being the first, we follow what happens to the citizens left behind. How do they cope with the ongoing afteshocks of the Big One. How do they cope with a civilization that is not only been shattered, but must rebuild from scratch.
In these stories, which leads to After Shock Two, we follow a few personalities who must not only survive a horrid experience, but summon the courage to help others less fortunate than themselves. Both stories are about heroes and heroines. People who care deeply about life so much, that they refuse to give up!
I"ve put a lot of thought into the above journeys, and at this time I am working on a new series based on the above ones, which will trace the Big One back to its roots. Where did it all begin? Why?
Meanwhile, I will continue to follow m brave teams exploring the inside of our planet in their desire to save the world from utter destruction.
Science fiction at its finest and perhaps even a prediction of what could be if we don't change our ways and our attitude towards Mother Earth.
Next post is my theme music for After Shock One.

Movie Serial. Golden age serial, The Lost City, Chapter 8: Human Targets. More fun and mayhem. Sci-fi and fantasy!
The thing about watching these oldies but goodies is how fraught they are...in today's terms and views...with politically incorrect attitudes and ways of dealing with people we no longer find amusing, kind or beneficial to partake in.
For example, the old cowboy movies which almost always showed the Indians fighting for booze and weapons and always on the warpath and after our women...
Mmmm. Sounds like some attitudes people in modern times have had towards other races. Or still do!
But I am not here to judge bad decisions, but rather to show how even in the worst of times for many, there are some sparks of good to be had.
Song of the South remains one of Disney's finest films in terms of animation and music, even though it wrongly pictures the contentment of slaves, held by their white masters. It focuses on the magic that a black man gives to a young boy and helps open up his eyes to a much larger world. So even then, there was the stirring of hope for the future, when the races would get along.
Disney has gone so far as to bury this movie in its vaults, to pretend it never sanctioned such thinking. But we know it wasn't so much that they hated black people, but they just didn't understand the equality of man at that time in the fifties and forties. Much has happened since then. Some good. Some bad. But overall the human race has made some progress, ever so slowly towards the balance that all within their heart of hearts hopes for.
In this serial we see the black race portrayed very savagely at times, and again, a silly portrayal created by the bias of some who lived in those times, and didn't want to see the equality of souls in all men and women.
Yes, there were savages in Africa. But were there not also savages in America? There is no country's or people's history free of barbarism and violence.
We just hope in the future that mankind outgrows its pettiness and tendency to judge and be harsh to those that we don't agree with.
Meanwhile, jumping off my political and soap box, here's another chapter of the Lost City.
The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Chapter 24: How Tarzan Came Again to Opar. Building to a fantastic conclusion!
