It’s time for Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday. To find other great authors posting snippets from their work (no more that ten sentences each) click on the logo above.
Jarn’s Journal is the journal of a human-like alien, Jarn, who was stranded on Earth roughly 125,000 years ago. He has contacted a group of our ancestors, and at this point he has been in Africa for almost five years. A longer version of this post is on my main blog; the entire Journal to date is on my author site. And if you’d like a summary of why Jarn is an important part of the back story of my science fiction, have a look at this posting from the World Building Blogfest. Warning: major spoilers!
Year 5 Day 50
I vouched that WildDog is Songbird’s child. (And Giraffe’s, though I am determined not to say anything that will puff him up any more than does being guardian to such a fine boy.) But Songbird still regards Rain Cloud as her shaman, and herself as a part of Rain Cloud’s group. So Rain Cloud accepted WildDog as a part of his clan, and I vouched that he was born into that group. And we both held him aloft between us for the recognition by the whole group. I hope that as he grows older he will not be treated differently because I took a part in his Naming.
I counted fifteen other children being Named, rarely more than one to a group. Rain Cloud’s group counted two including WildDog, and one other group also had two.
Could I ask for reviews from anyone who has read any of my books, especially Horse Power? My Amazon and Barnes and Noble pages look awfully bare.
