INDEX FOR ALL THE NANOCORP SAGA

An on-going, interwoven series of stories based on the technology that

created Sid, but eventually involving all of Russell's characters

but completely out of his movie.

He's set about 'collecting' his counterparts from other

Russell movies for some purpose only he knows.

THE CAVERN OF DEEP HARMONY

Marshall Sinclair, a Russell-illustrated character first found in "A Strong Tower",

gets his own tender love story. He's a PhD professor of English Lit who happens

to have been born blind. But lest you think it's all books, there are escaped convicts,

collapsing gully walls, daffodils, hostages, a lovely inn by a lake, and then a novel within a novel with

Morgan Kent, another Russell-illustrated character, who arrives in Virginia in 1774.

INDEX FOR:

ALL THAT'S LEFT OF ME

This story is based on the experiences of my great, great grandfather,

Jonathon James McDaniel and his younger brother, William,

during and after the Civil War. Jonathon was in nearly every major battle from the

first at Manassas (Bull Run) to almost the last. Every place, every person,

every bit of weather is as it was or as close as I could get it, and along the

way are two beautiful love stories.

FIND ME !!

A modern Atlanta ER doctor is suddenly confronted by a badly-injured man who appears

on a gurney, wearing a gray uniform, and looks at her not only as though he knows

her, but loves her.  He gasps out, "Find me!" and then disappears.

INDEX

 

NOTE: I was not all that fond of how Steve behaved in his movie so this story

is me making myself like him better, giving him reasons for his behavior, helping

him get past it.  As the first 13 chapters of this were written some years ago and

if you read them then, you've probably forgotten their content, or if you're

just going to start the story for the first time, go to the index and reread so

the new chapters will make sense!
