Enter the Superverse

Hi. Thanks so much for letting me read this. It was a blast. Here are my thoughts:

When a writer can create another world in your head within five pages, you know he's got it. When the same writer can pull you into the story and make you feel like you're participating, well, I don't actually know what to call that.

Except entertaining as hell.

With a clever trick and skilled writing, Yuan Jur grabs us from line one and eases us into the Superverse, a complex universe of cosmic power, unseen forces and, yes, bureaucracy. Frankly, I felt like I was a character in a Douglas Adams tale for the first two chapters. In a good way!

But it's not just about world-building here. Understanding the Superverse is important, but Jur has a good story to tell, too. It follows Uniss, Dogg and Ben on a trip that, at first, leaves an impression like the magic of childhood. Uniss and Dogg are on Earth to investigate a reset of the space time continuum. They stumble on the young Ben Blochentackle and find their new partner.

Reading Enemy of Existence is a brain-bending adventure that introduces rich characters and action wrapped up in snappy dialogue and some serious wordcrafting. The story can be heartbreaking, exciting, and poignant. The fact that the core of EoE speaks to our nature and our place in the universe just shows the author's sophistication. Jur has a lot to say. He says it well. You should listen.

Quall Assassin A Citadel Tribune News Flash!

Citadel 7's first story, Quall Assassin Crossfire ISBN; 9780994215307 has launched!

Earth Clan.

Today, the newly formed Triporian Alliance Earth Watch Committee (TAEW) had its first damming problem to solve. Their point of distress began today with the unsanctioned publication of superverse secrets by of all individuals, a human being. The Earth Clan author, Yuan Jur has published his first unsanctioned chronicle of happenings outside of Earth's jurisdiction. There will be undoubted consequences for this Earth clan scribe's brash actions.

How he acquired such accurate intel is a mystery, but it makes for some fascinating reading. "It's time we got started," Yuan Jur was recorded saying in an intercepted private interview. "The Earth Clan deserves to know!" he said.

Know what? Who in the Earth Clan is Yuan Jur speaking to specifically? Has superverse espionage struck Earth? How far will Yuan Jur's maverick action reporting superverse events through his Citadel 7 planned series go?

The first of the Citadel 7 evidence files, as the TAEW has labeled them, can now be purchased at the following Earth-net outlets. The Earth Clan will have to make up their own mind this reporter feels. As these short story and novel length exposés of superverse happenings enter the reading Earth Clan public's grasp. One source suggests an Earth Clan publisher called Promontory Press may well be involved.

Reports are, there's more Citadel 7 chronicles on the way. This reporter for one can't wait to see how this new publication will effect both superverse god's senate and TAEW efforts to keep it all under wraps.
