Alternity, my first published novel:

Alternity, an Alternate History Novel







Amazon, BN, Borders

The above question forms the basis of Alternity, the first installment of a trilogy. The novel’s title is derived from “alternate” and “reality,” and describes the world created by Walter Bayer, a graduate student of physics at the fictional Adams University, and Lieutenant Colonel Adam Halstead, a military history instructor at West Point, when they travel back in time to November 11, 1918.

November 11th, of course, is Armistice Day, the final day of World War I. Halstead travels to chaotic post-war Germany and, after murdering the would-be Nazi dictator, assumes his victim’s identity and begins to implement plans for world domination.



And click here for an early version of Alternity, written when I was a freshman in college:



THE WANDERER (SEQUEL TO ALTERNITY)



History museum curator Joshua Carter meets up with a man who claims to be exactly 2,000 years old (2,000 years of history plus the 30 years he lived before he leapt back in time, and minus the 30 years before his time travel arrival point of AD 30). "Cartaphilus," as the stranger calls himself, tells quite a tale that covers over 700 years...

SHORT STORY DESCRIPTIONS



"Twelfth of Ninth"

As one of the two characters explains, it’s a “story about a man and his date who asks more than her quota of one personal question.”



"Loco"

Henry Bacon is a freshman at Adams College who flees its upstate New York campus in the spring of ‘94 after a roommate reads his diary (or “journal,” as Bacon insists to other characters on more than one occasion). He runs after narrowly avoiding commitment to a psychiatric ward and ends up in Manhattan, where he begins a new life and recaptures a small part of his old one.







LONGER WORKS

Here's a description of Farewell, Manhattan, another full-length novel:



Farewell, Manhattan is a novel about a young and ambitious Manhattan stockbroker named Brian Michael Wharton who makes his fortune pushing Internet-related stocks in the early and mid Nineties, and who uses his newfound wealth to pursue his vision of the American dream. Wharton pushes the stocks AOL, Dell, Intel, Microsoft, and Playboy before and as they skyrocket in value (okay, so Playboy is the playboy's one misfire), and he spends his resulting hefty commission checks pursuing the "high" life in locales as varied as Manhattan nightclubs, Paris, and the Hamptons. The work covers the years from 1993 to 1997, a stretch that spans Wharton's graduation from the fictional Adams College, his brief-yet-dazzling Wall Street career at the firm of Davis & Channing, his outward rise from humble beginnings, and his inward descent to an ignoble end.



Here's a description of Evening Star, a science fiction novella:

Evening Star is the saga of Ergos, a planet inhabited by ten billion souls which is dying from pollution and a depletion of natural resources. High Speaker Lolthi, the ruler of the planet, proposes to his Council that the Ergosians colonize the nearby planet of Azura by means of a giant spaceship (the Destiny One), and puts his own son, Erthi, in command of an exploratory mission to that planet's surface. But Lolthi's plan triggers a violent reaction from the Ergosian military when it learns that the High Speaker does not intend to take his many enemies with him...
