The Amazing Adventures
of Sara Corel
A novel by Toomey
Midnight Madness -- Alex as author tries to answer e-mails and get some work done in spite of Sara.
Originally published on the Aurora Universe website.
Denny's -- Toomey writes a letter to the Aurora Universe Writers' Group about struggling with
characters way past any normal human's bedtime. S.T. Mac, keeper of the Infinity Bridge
website and author of the Lillith of Velor stories, turns the tables. Toomey
strikes back. Stay tuned...
The Last Scribe -- A
poem of sorts, written for the Aurora Universe, about the Last Scribe of
Velor. It might not make a lot of sense if you don't know what a Velorian
is, or anything about the Arion Empire. But you might like it anyway. Oddly
enough, it's the most accessed page on the website.
Protector -- A virtual reality tour of the Cryptoalien
facility where Sara Corel was manufactured.
Close Encounter --
The author has a chat with a Cryptoalien. You should read the previous story
first, or it'll be even more confusing...
Proper Waffles --
Forget about spinach. Or kryptonite. There's only one thing that'll get any
superhero's attention. (They don't have to count calories...) Here's how.
The Man In
Black -- Villains are where you find them -- or where they find you. Here's a
slice-of-life encounter with the kind of guy you love to hate. (True story)
Summer -- In Which I Undertake a Mystical Journey to
Return an Innocent Child of Darkness to Her Home In a Far-Away Land, Stay
In the Home of a Witch, Converse with a Mermaid-In-Training, Travel to the
Edge of Space, Dine at the Passion Cafe, Board a Mighty Dreadnaught,
Reunite with My Long-Lost Sisters, Touch the Grave of My Father, and Wash
My Hands In the Father of Waters Before Crossing Over Into a Future of
Uncertainty. (In progress)
Telling Stories -- It's a midlife
crisis of a rather different sort, as the author succumbs to the inevitable.
I've received an astonishing number of letters from readers,
more than I could possibly reproduce on the website. Usually, it's
considered to be pretty good if an author gets one percent of his/her
readers to drop him/her a note. I've heard from about three-hundred
different people so far (some of them dozens of times), so I either have
thirty-thousand readers (unlikely) or everybody that reads Susan
drops me a note (also unlikely). The total volume of email (and my
responses) exceeds that of the book. I can only put up a few of them. I'll
try to add more when I get the time.
I'll take requests if there's something
you really want me to tee off on. Hey, fairness and honesty 'till it hurts --
Anime -- Not
really a review, but some musings about a bit of popular culture in response to a letter
by AK of the Aurora Universe Writers' Group.
Kiki's Delivery Service --
Culled from a series of letters to the Aurora Universe Writers' Group, a
review of sorts and thoughts on the art of storytelling.
Origins of Susan -- This is an e-mail I sent to author Sharon Best, who maintains the Aurora Universe,
outlining my proposal for the Susan story. It basically sums up what I'm
trying to accomplish with it.
Another Book? -- As soon as I get this writing thing down a little better, I'll probably
want to try my hand at something a little more mainstream. Some reminiscences from my own
life should provide plenty of material.

and lots more, including his own amazing photomanipulations.

stories and others, including DKS, Kathy, Marlen, The Girl's School and
