A world of elves, dwarves, trolls, ogres, goblins, and where the laws of science have been skewed. It will take an archaelogist from Earth’s future with his trusty — and now fairly sarcastic computer — who’s having difficulty convincing anyone that he doesn’t do magic, to find his way back home. He is discovering the truths of this work as he seeks his way back home — when the world around him seems to have other plans…

The Future of the Novel

At Highmage’s Plight/DHR2Believe.net, we believe in people and creativity. We have already assembled these materials to get this online novel off the ground. Having worked in the publishing field, we know what the problems are and have an “novel” approach for where reading a book can go in the future. And should this site take off, know that we will also help support the members of Writing.com and nonprofit organizations.

Barry Nove is D.H. Aire’s partner in the DHR2Believe.net experiment. Over the course of a conversation about the future of where publishing seems to be going, and being a fan and “closet” writer like D.H., Barry suggested that D.H. offer the Highmage’s Plight series online. He responded, “Yeah, right, and how am I supposed to do that? You’re the organizer here, not me.” Hence, DHR’s staff went into action. Barry asks only, “Hey, this is an experiment, all suggestions for improvement are welcome.” Barry Nove’s published urban fantasy short stories also appear in Separate Worlds’ Flights of Fantasy, Vol. 1, his story Immortal State will appear in the debut issue of Atomic Avarice (September 2012), and his story Nowhere to Go But Mars will appear in the forthcoming Zharmae Anthology (trade paperbook, February 2012).

Recent Review:

Flights of Fantasy was a very interesting read for me. It was past, present, and future. It was fantasy and reality. it was child-like but adult. The stories changed so much from one to another but wove together beautifully. The authors have a unique writing style that is very entertaining. I highly recommend Flights of Fantasy to all readers with a keen sense of adventure. Kudos to Mr. Aire and Mr. Nove. You did well.”

Darkness welled, shattering the image, as a voice shouted across the depths of darkness. “FIND HIM! DESTROY HIM OR ALL MY PLANS WILL BE IN RUINS!”

The other voice whispered softly, ‘You will come. Answers you shall have. You are the cusp of paradox and the only hope for my world.’

George physically shook, feeling as if part of him had been ripped in half. “What’s happening to me?”

This time there was no answer.
