Hi. I’m Aelius. These are my books.
In a world where anonymity is banned, holding an alias is a serious offense and nicknames are guarded like gold.
Richard is hopeful when his spaceship crashes on an inhabited planet. But with his friend hurt in the crash, and medical supplies on this planet strangely expensive, hope begins to fade.
It’s a bad day when your spaceship crashes. But if it’s a ship fueled by carbon emissions that runs aground on one of the most polluted habitable planets in the galaxy, your day might just be a little bit better.
Of course, if some people want to clean up that planet, it’s a bad day for carbon-emission-fueled-spaceships.
Death preserved forever in drops of maple syrup – a name just out of reach – a bear’s growl – a door that leads to… nowhere, and a man who walks through it.
These are the stories of things: some just this side of reality, some just that side of… somewhere else.
“striking and evocative writing…unusual characters and plots — a doctor obsessed with time travel, a widow consumed by grief for her late husband, and a man addicted to maple syrup.” From A.M Harte, Editor-in Chief 1889 Labs
“Aelius seems really at ease writing fiction, happy doing it and if you don’t like it you can go read something else.” From Douglas Lucas freelance writer and Clarion West alum
Skyland is drying up. Nine ships are set to leave for a new colony. But flying into the Sky is an affront to the heavens and the Sky Reverends will not allow it.
Destroying the ships – the abominations that fly into the holy Sky – is a great honor, one Harper should gladly give his life for. The Sky Reverends instill in their followers one lesson: the Sky is sacred and flying is an affront to the Heavens. Raised by a Reverend, Harper Fields learned to obey and agree.
But he doesn’t agree. Not really. And in one daring moment he chooses not to obey–instead boarding the ship he was meant to destroy.
