Fractured Fragment Friday: What Challenges Will Our Hero Face Now That the “Cats Out of the Bag”?

Time for the sixth story in the Herc Tom, Champion of the Empire series. “Cats Out of the Bag” combined the final return of the Lost Baastards (the routed fleet from “Nipped in the Butt”), the escape of the exiled Empress Isabella, and the return of The Lynx with the introduction a new and powerful … Continue reading

Fractured Fragment Friday: Murder, Catnapping, and Intrigue – All Under the Cloak of “Imperial Purrogative”

“Imperial Purrogative” is the FIFTH Herc Tom, Champion of the Empire tale. It was time to revisit the Rotter Dame, and bring justice to the as yet undiscovered conspirators who had enabled the Rotters to return to Ramses in “Cat and Mouse.” The story introduces a new, recurring character in the mysterious Lynx, as well … Continue reading

Fractured Fragment Friday: A Simple Diplomatic Mission Leaves Herc Tom a Victim of “Baastard’s Revenge”

Fractured Fragment Friday: Herc Tom, Champion of the Empire Finds Himself in an Unexpected Alliance of “Cat and Mouse”

As in all generalizations, not everyone in a group fits neatly into their stereotypes. … Continue reading

Fractured Fragment Friday: Despite His Best Efforts, Herc Tom May find Himself – and the Ramses Empire – “Nipped in the Butt”

“Nipped in the Butt” (I do like double entendre) gave me a chance to expand a little more on the conflict between Ramses and the Baastians (I don’t care how many times you think you have a peace deal with your enemies – it is ALWAYS necessary to remain vigilant; you are in “trust, but … Continue reading
