Greetings, Dear Readers.

This is a quick update for you, Hermes readers.

Hermes has not been around, that I’ve seen anyway, for almost a year.  I do know he was, and hopefully still is dealing with a recurrent malignancy, a cancer that often proliferates rapidly once it reoccurs, as was the case.  Good thoughts to my friend and co-writer.

If you would like to read a new story, or a series of new stories, then, by all means come visit Revolutions Universe.  A link to this Universe has been added to the Links section on this page.

Status Update

Posted: February 10, 2012 by Hermes in Announcement

To all my other faithful readers:

Thanks for your concern. The past few months have been a bit trying
here. My medical condition had worsened for a time, but I am on the
mend. There was a period of a month or so where I was unable to
concentrate long enough to write. Whereas that is getting better, my
efforts to date at continuing the stories have been far below the
quality I demand for you, my readers.

As I have said in the past, I will not release a chapter in a story
until I am happy with it. It is my fervent hope that I have a chapter
out sometime in the next week.

Thank you all again for your concern.


2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I will be taking a couple of days off from this story to work on others.  Chapter 5 was a major undertaking and I need to allow the synapses to recover.  I hope you enjoy the story so far, there’s more to come.

Hello again Friends…

I wanted to address a couple things.  First off, Chapters 1-3 of Dream Lover are now available at

Second, I have received correspondence from a reader who expressed concern that I may have too many stories in progress.  Please allow me to say that writing is an enjoyment for me.  I get pleasure from sharing my musings.  However, it’s not a science. As you all know from my previous posts, I have been dealing with health issues.  Unfortunately, at times, these issues preclude my being able to concentrate sufficiently to write.  However, these situations are rarely permanent.

Currently, On WordPress, I have 2 stories of my own that are ‘in progress’.  Dream Lover and A Squire’s Tale.  In addition, there is a story that was written by another author that I have been given permission to write follow-ups to called David’s Northern Adventures.  Dream Lover came about only this week after a very long period where my health didn’t allow me to write.  It actually came to me in a dream and I felt compelled to get it written.

A Squire’s Tale is at a point where any other writer may feel has come to a conclusion, however I still have more to tell in that story.  I have been working on the next chapter, but I have not been happy with the results.  I would rather delay posting a chapter than publish what I feel is far below what you, the readers deserve.  Be assured you will see additional chapters in that story fairly soon.

The correspondence also made reference to one of my completed stories, “Speedo Boys”.  When I finished that story, I stated that I “MAY” at some point revisit the story and create a “Book II”.  I have been outlining possible plot lines for this, however, I will not guarantee that I will be posting any of that sequel at any point within the next 30 days.  But, again, you never know.  A writer writes what he feels at the time.  Trying to force writing in a particular story usually winds up putting out a quality of work I would not feel comfortable with.

Thank you all for your support in the past, and I hope I can continue to earn it in the future.  For now, please enjoy Dream Lover.
