   Arnie's favorite thing to do was to run around and see what he could find. But one day Arnie found something new, though it had been there all along. It was a great big, enormous, neverending wall. He wondered what could be behind it. He was sure it would be new places to run and explore.

   This children's book features a group of seven friends who confront a mysterious and (as the title suggests!) massive wall, and the adventure that results. The book is 8"x8" and 26 pages, with color illustration on every-other page. Recommended for ages three to ten, or grown-ups who are still kids at heart. 1st grade reading level.

   Correspondence of Thieves owes its origin to an email-based role-play (e-play) conducted in 1999 & 2000 between five individuals brought together by their love of the PC game Thief: The Dark Project by Looking Glass Studios. Inspired by this setting, the five authors took turns telling the story from the perspective of invented characters until a complete adventure was told, and then posted online one chapter at a time for all to enjoy.

   In 2005 one of those five contributors chose to rewrite the e-play into a novel, which you are now viewing. This novel greatly expands upon and revises the plot of the original work, while remaining true to the personalities of the five who invented it.

   Morden Wakes Up is a companion piece to my Master of Architecture Thesis, The First Icomde. It's written as if it were a chapter of a novel, (I suggest chapter 2) set within the building I was proposing in my thesis. It's near-future science fiction, written in the style of a detective novel, with a bit of political intrigue.

   This unofficially titled work is based on a pair of very short stories I wrote many years ago, All There is to See and Existences not Dissimilar. It is currently unfinished, though it's written in its entirety. I hope to have it illustrated.
