Air for Fire

by David Major Paperback, Kindle, epub. This is a collection of nine short stories and 23 poems by David Major, author of The Day of the Nefilim. While the Nefilim was a meandering trip through some of the world's great conspiracy theories, Air for Fire is a collection of short tales that happen in every timeline but this one. Shameless historical revisionism, a chronic disregard for physics, all in orbit around a thoroughly judgemental and conservative core, mean there is something here for steampunks, mythpunks, clockpunks, and all lovers of history, true or otherwise. • Air for Fire • The Princess Aslauga • The Tower • Berthezene • The One a Dog Runs To • All That The Thunderer Wrung From Thee • Rhakotis • Feeding the Beast • The Serpent, the Horse • More >

As for Napoleon’s death on the roof of a burning library outside Borodino — I’m absolutely sure that that happened -D.M. More >

The Day of the Nefilim

BY DAVID MAJOR Paperback, Kindle, epub. The premise of The Day of the Nefilim, is simple: take a good-sized sampling of the most popular conspiracy theories and new age thought forms that the culture has to offer, put them in a blender, and hit the switch. From the resulting goo, create a sequence of events which begins with the arrival on earth of a time-travelling, aether-surfing ship crewed by a collection of ingrates and leeches (not literal leeches, metaphorical ones), while at the same time, in a coincidence of astronomical proportions, the Nefilim home planet, Marduk, is reentering the solar system after its 3,000 year orbit around the sun. How this plays out, and what a few of the locals have to do with it, only time can tell. It seems that the New World Order might not be so orderly after all... More >
