The Dreaming Void Character List

One of my favorite authors is Peter F. Hamilton.  I listen to a lot of books on audio while driving, and he has so many characters and so much going on in his books, that I find it useful to reference a character list.  I couldnt find one for TDV so I decided to make one for myself.  SPOILER WARNING: my character descriptions may give clues/hints to plotlines in the book…

This list is Commonwealth Characters Only.  Within the Void will be another post, also, I think I might arrange the list by planet and faction for a future post.  If Im missing some characters/pertinent details please post in comments (I know Im missing some important aliens – will add later).  This does not include Temporal Void Characters.  That will also be a future post.

My Other Mother

Oh yes – my other mother… or part of a possible series concept called “Men-types that raised me in the absense of my father…” which would likely include Tommy, Doctor Who, John Cleese, Danny Elfman… and my all time #1 – Tim Curry. How I love you. Kisses.

And, I might add, it wasnt easy being raised by Time Lords, Manic Brits, Transvestite-Butler-Legendary Demons, Deaf-dumb-and-blind kids (who sure play mean pinball) and musical geniuses – but I think I turned out OK.

So elaborating on this idea a little bit… Doctor Who taught me non-violence and quiet perseverance… Danny Elfman taught me that there is always room for one more… and that no one lives forever… Tommy taught me about Jesus and messiahs in general (and messiah complexes – always fun)… and that Jack Nicholson shouldn’t have a singing part in any movie ever. John Cleese taught me that you cant knock a nail in with a hamster… (very important) and that when your brain hurts you should put a dipie on your head.  I use that remedy to this day. Tim Curry taught me that when I get hot and flustered – I should use a bit of mustard… and that, in truth, even when there are other possibilities, the Butler DID do it.

More Ferarum Update

If you’re reading… I just want to let you know that I’m struggling with the end of this story. I still consider myself a new writer and writing serially is incredibly challenging (as reading serially often is, especially when the author has no update schedule). 

This is just a little reminder that this will probably be a better read when the story is complete. Thank you for understanding.

More Ferarum is Endless Torment

I am so sorry I’ve done this to myself.  And to you, those who have patiently stuck by me for YEARS as I struggle to write this story where basically nothing happens and people don’t just SAY what they need to say.

I’m sorry.  I’m sorry for how this story is going to end, because I know I won’t do it justice.  I really didn’t know what I was doing with this story, but I went ahead and did it anyway… and it reads like a story that doesn’t know what it is.  At least to me.

Maybe a little down the road, after the dust has settled, I’ll be able to clean it up and set it right.  Maybe.

Right now I just can’t stomach the idea of ever having to read it again.

Haha. Sob.
