  1. The Pecman is correct about media moving into the digital realm. I feel the issue here isn't if some of these things will exist or not. They certainly will remain to some extent. Books won't completely vanish, neither will other forms of media. To even think so would be foolish, and overly simplistic. There will always be a place for most all types of media as long as there's technology to support them. There are still artists producing art using old polaroid technology, vinyl records won't completely disappear (and as has been stated above are having a small resurgence), some film makers s
  2. Dear TSOI Readers, I don't mind if not all (or even many) of you don't access the audio file. In fact after a quick listen many may chose to continue reading instead of listening to the work. That's really ok with me. Some readers prefer the quiet act of reading. I think it's one of the best ways to stimulate the mind and the imagination. Like adding pictures of characters, the spoken word can violate the images readers have in their minds as to the look and sound of the characters. And that's a bit of a sacred thing between a writer and their readers. I too enjoy the act of reading, but so
  3. Dear TSOI readers, I am engaging an experiment in creating TSOI audio files. An audio file of The Scrolls of Icaria's CHAPTER 33 from Book 2 is currently available on the TSOI CHAPTER PAGE . BE WARNED that if you listen to it without reading any other parts of TSOI you will be opening yourself up for some spoilers. Please let me know what you think, and if it's something that you would like to see regarding past and/or future chapters. Jamie Click HERE
  4. ?& also Chapter 16 of Book 2 of The Scrolls of Icaria for TOSI readers!
  5. Very nice work TR, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It?s amazing how the truth is much more incredible then fiction. I?ve always been amazed that many gays don?t know this true story and I?m glad you brought it to light. The fictional Wizard?s Imperial Legion of Icaria that appears in TSOI is based 100% on the real fighting unit who fought so valiantly that they had to be completely slaughtered in order for them to be defeated. I?ve always held the story of the formation of the Thebian fighting unit and their bravery in high regard, it?s one reason I ?modeled? my own fighting troops on them. It is sa
  6. I enjoyed all of the special and well written Halloween stories in this weeks Awesome Dude posting, but this story was my absolute favorite. Maybe it appeals to my activism, but I thought it was the BEST of all of them. Thank you for writing it and sharing it with all of us. Jamie
  7. Here?s how I look at the issues of ?scrolls? that you bring up. When I first envisioned writing this story the mental image I gave myself was as follows: I set up my mental construct based on the assumption that many years have passed since the time of the original story. In the far distant future, Jamie returning from one of his long voyages visits one of the scholarly academies of Icaria. While there, a young scholar doing research on the formation of Icaria and it's history cautiously approaches him. Although slightly fearful and not wanting to appear bold and forward, the young Icarian ne

    Thanks for the feed-back everyone. It makes me glad to hear that you enjoyed it. I did this a while back as a Christmas piece. It was fun to write and although it doesn't have any Icarians in it, it does feature a little boy with wings... funny I always seem to find a way to put wings on my characters.
  9. A delightful and heart warming story. Well written. Just the thing for the holiday season. A great plot twist. Artfully done so the twist wasn't easily guessed or an immediate give-away. I throughly enjoyed it. Thank you
