Publication: The Sands of Erebus
Posted 5/30/2006 10:28am [from Drew Gardner]

This novella is a young, American Aikidoka's search for wisdom and spiritual fulfillment. His sensei has spoken to him in a riddle: "A soul is both clarified and invigorated where two kinds of saltwater meet ten thousand gallons of fresh water." Will Jackson ever make sense of this? From the chapter entitled Sushi Sympathy: "Though it lacked a blade, the jo was clearly formidable in its own right. He was walking out the door with it when his roommate, Paco, said, "What's that for? Are you going hiking?" "No, it's a practice weapon for that martial art I told you about," Jack responded. "Oh it's for that akita, then?" "No, it's much to heavy for a dog to fetch, it's for EYE-KEY-DOE." ..."Aikido is the martial art of peace." "Mira, that's one of the most oxymoronic contradictions I've ever heard. Now, in the least literal sense, take that broomstick and go break a leg at your class. Tell me more about this uhkito someday." To view the synopsis and a brief biography, and for purchasing guidance, kindly visit http://www.publishedauthors.net/sands/index.html
