Meet The Archivist

My mom always said I was her costume child. She’s right, always has been, always will be -but don’t tell her I said that. Okay? So it only made sense to write as a storyteller within my universe. The Archivist. As the only Archivist left is my job to record the stories of those living within the Legends of the Fall universe (We’re rebuilding the order right now. We’ll post applications later.) Anyways, each story has its own hero or heroine, along with a supporting cast of characters. Soon enough, their stories will collide. But not now. They’re not ready. I’m not ready. Before I picked up the persona of the Archivist, I was always making up stories. I remember playing in the home repair stores or being on a construction job site and transforming them into space stations, rebel bases or the surface of an uncharted world. I filled them will stormtroopers and starships, dragons and knights. Over time stories, and writing, became a sort of Jungian therapy for me. It helped me process the chaotic emotions and conflicting circumstances I found myself in. It kept me alive. Kept me sane. Yet one day, I realized my characters, my invisible friends, and the places they lived were bound to me. Bound to my mortality. One day, I’d slip away, and I’d drag them into the afterlife with me. That terrified me. That’s when I knew I had to share my stories. It started with my wife. I opened up to her. Shared the world I had lived in since I was a teenager. Then I shared it with my children. I realized that those characters and places now lived within them. That in some small measure, they’d survive me. Now I’d like to invite you on this crazy adventure. It’s not for everyone and that’s okay. I hope that if these stories speak to you, if the words I write make you feel something, then you too will open yourself up and let these characters and places find a home within you as well. And maybe one day, under a bright sun, you’ll tell others your own stories. Cheers, The Archivist

Tethered Worlds: Unwelcome Star

For fans of Dune, the Honor Harrington series, & Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series “…one of the most fully imagined sci-fi worlds I have ever experienced outside of Frank Herbert’s genre-defining “Dune” series.” –D.A.Cartier Jordahk thought he was average. He was wrong. He thought his planet too far from the centuries-old stalemate line to see any action. He was wrong about that too. To save his world from annexation he must retreat with his eccentric grandfather, seeking help from the farthest planets. But what can stop the domination of mankind’s supreme star-spanning government? There is an ancient technology with the power to break the conventional–but it can also break the user. And only a special few can wield it. But Jordahk suspects his grandfather knows more than he’s telling…

Meet Gregory Faccone

You might think part-time mystery man Gregory Faccone has lived ten lifetimes. He’s baked in 130° deserts, and on a dark, rainy night, driven a remote road carpeted with frogs (true story, really). He performed a long tenure developing electronic entertainment with the biggest names including Warner Bros., Paramount Studios, Electronic Arts and Sony. He created content for popular franchises from science fiction (Star Trek), to superhero (Superman); even a medical drama (ER). But the written word lasts, and forms a close bond with the reader. So Gregory created a unique science fiction universe. The foundation for the “Tethered Worlds” series took two years to build before the first installment, Unwelcome Star, was written. Gregory is influenced by Arthur C. Clarke’s axiom: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Jump into Tethered Worlds and go on an adventure based in the centuries to come. While technology advances, the nature of mankind remains unchanged. It continues to wrestle with flaws, and is preserved through selflessness and nobility.
