The Gorge (The Others Book 1)

by Joe Zeigler

Four young orphan girls look forward to the annual winter migration of their early civilization hunter/gatherer clan with happy anticipation. But a ceremony, whose purpose is to guarantee the continuation of the species, crushes their plans. Little did the girls know that their participation in and acquiescence to The Breeding would result in them becoming outcasts with little prospect. To rise above the stigma, they must take control of their lives, confound expectations, and become independent of those who would control them.
The Gorge is an early civilization action adventure with a sinful side that centers around the migratory traditions of several groups: The People, who have been here since the beginning of man; The Others, who have assimilated themselves into this world to effect change; The Raiders, whose purpose is to pillage and plunder at will; The industrious Cliff Dwellers; The Lowlanders, whose society is based on an agrarian economy; and The Traders, who barter for and with the materials necessary for all groups to survive.
The People as a whole are the main character of the story and the changes that can start in a whole civilization from the actions of one or a few individuals.
God has instructed The Raiders, the most spiritual of the groups, to practice polygamy and to “bleed the sheep”. These habits introduce the conflicts between groups. The conflicts between men and women are inherent – for now. But, things are changing.
Nature also plays a significant role: flooded rivers, deserts scorched by heat, and animals driven by hunger. The characters in the book face the challenges and hardships presented by both man and nature.

Odd Ends: Short Stories

by A.K. Sinquefield

Five short stories from the author of “How to Make a Superhero (by the New Burg Police Department.”

“The Cat Stared Back” Why do animals stare at us? Or worse, why do they stare at the empty space behind us…
“Worth It” It’s common for teenagers to harbor a desire to rebel against rules, society, the accepted standards of beauty. In a world of black and white, of gray monochrome where color is forbidden, rebellion is a rainbow.
“Meet Bob” Bob’s life sucks. So does yours. But that’s okay. At least you don’t have a pet duck.
“Evolution” Millions of years and natural selection shape the course of a species’ development. Science shapes it in a single lifetime.
“A Traveler’s Tale” It’s not all fancy gadgets and shiny machines with blinking lights–time travel is real and it happens to everyday people. Every day. For no apparent reason. What do you do when you pop out of your shower into a busy London street, decades in the past and clad in nothing but soap suds? You introduce yourself to the first guy you see, save his life, and hope for the best. And try not to start a zombie apocalypse along the way.
