In a ‘thank-you’ of sorts to everyone who has willingly decided to follow my blog, there is a new page entitled ‘My Followers’. Despite its slightly cultist overtone, a link to every person’s WordPress is available in one convenient location!
I have finally focused long enough to check out the work of J. Michael Edwards. With a site name like ‘Temporalis Intersectus’, how can it not draw in one who has a degree of partiality to science fiction?
The story in question is ‘Terra One’, a serialised story with the generous chance to contribute to the future of the storyline!
At this point in time, there has been two days of action.
Day 1 begins with a mysterious woman in a coffee, playing a game of cat and mouse. There is a teased endgame, but it is kept vague enough to keep you interested.
We move on to two focal characters, Flynn Archimedes and Trinity Byzantium, docking their space freighter with the ‘World Ship’ Terra One. A bit of unsuccessful wooing leads on to an unexpected greeting.
From there, the next two scenes detail a visit that one would expect from such a greeting. The progress of the passage is the tease of an antagonist for Flynn.
A supposedly bit character from Episode 2 gets involved, helping develop herself and Flynn’s and Trinity’s visitor.
The day finishes with Trinity heading out for a night in the clubs, as one would likely have a hankering for after an extended trip into the Solar System.
JME’s writing style is enjoyable for the way it tells much with minimal words. Each 300-500 word episode develops the plot further, with each enticingly giving a little bit more characterisation of the scene’s focal character.
There is not too much in the way of scene-setting, but half the fun is letting one’s own mind fill in the scenery.
I look forward to Day 2, and recommend that you head on over for a read of JME’s work. I believe it will be worth your while =)
