Ex Nihilo

Ex Nihilo is a science fiction, short story suite. What does that mean? It means that it’s made up of a series of short stories, some of them short enough to be considered “flash” literature, some of them not so much, who all share one universe. In this universe, a galactic empire called the Heart controls the galaxy, through culture, language and knowledge. In Ex Nihilo, I pay homage to many of my favorite science fiction tropes and genres. However, most of the reasoning behind writing this was just to get it out there; it was bothering me too much inside my brain. Select parts of this story suite have also been translated into music:

 

Here’s a short intro before you read:

“Love is the ark appointed for the righteous,
Which annuls the danger and provides a way of escape.
Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.
Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition.”

This Too Shall Pass
Felt You
Bear With Me
Sleep Is A Thing of the Past
Staying Away
The Waters of Excess
Language. Heart. Culture.
Endless Wind
The Language Makers
The Legate of Terra
(Interlude) Stars Serenading
Unsullied
Free, Free, Free
Throw Your Fists Against The Wall Of Time, O Merlin!
A Longing For A Home
To Blind The Galaxy or Holding On To Names
Heart Surveying
In the Throes of Gust Unseen
The Cloak
Golden
Through And By The Words
Severance
