Fantasy World Building,
THE MANTIS CONTINUUM leaves behind the grimdark style of the previous story, and it morphs into an eldritch tale of psychic confrontation. Two weird children, Jzuna and Thech, go through a significant upheaval in their happy lives. A unique trio of gay 17 year old lads embark on a buccaneer adventure. A man living alone in isolation is found and helped, but with very unexpected consequences.
All of them suffer loss. All of them go through grief. All of them end up in Teshon City.
There is a cursed village, a trip to paradise, and a painting party.
There are giants, multiple alternate dimensions, and ice cream!
Meet Mikey, he's a twenty-two-year-old librarian and part-owner of Barefoot Books & Lounge. For the last two years and is finally ready to start dating again. Stir in a cluster of loving family members, a brother's crazy soon-to-be ex-girlfriend, and a tickle-crazed stalker/killer. Cover, and simmer till it comes to a boil, and by the time it's finished cooking, hopefully, you've got a recipe for an enjoyable story.
