Do you appreciate irony?  I love ironies and if there’s one literature that really got me interested in this literary device it was the Bible.  In this book New Testament scholar G. K. Beale look at the various irony found throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.  This is an excellent work on Biblical Theology and certainly I want to read more of Beale’s books.

Update On The Yarn Spinner

Well, I expected to get more done during my hiatus as far as actual writing goes.  Still, I did get a lot done on figuring out some foundation on the new subjects in the game “GlymyreScape”.  There are higher metals than steel in the world of Whoelterran.

“Glymyre Tales” starts posting again the fourth of February with a schedule of one and two panels twice a week.  Hopefully, I won’t teeter on the edge of burn out like before.

I haven’t forgotten the Glymyre Song novels either, and plan to work on them more regularly than before.  With The Good Lord’s Help, I’ll remember enough to keep the story congruent.

Glymyre Projects


Today, I finished page 41 of the first issue of Glymyre Tales.  It’s scheduled to post next Monday and I’ll be spending the rest of the week working on “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide, as well as the first of a series of novels called “Glymyre Songs:”.  All of these projects are going to be linked with the GlymyreScape system so it seems a good idea to work on them at (roughly) the same time.  This also helps prevent me from burning out and appears to be keeping my ideas fresh.  Course, even when these books are published I won’t be done.  The Good Lord Willing, lots of graphic novels in the Glymyre Tales series will be drawn up, lots of books in the Glymyre Songs series will be written, and The GlymyreScape Tome of Encounters will be published.

I have a lifetime of work to do.

Working On a Couple More Projects

Hey!  Well, if some of y’all wondered why I’m doing a biweekly (sorta) schedule on Glymyre Tales, it’s cause I’m working on a couple more projects.  True, putting webcomic pages out faster would probably get me a larger audience, but (for me) just working on one story presents the danger of burning myself out.  A webcomic is also notoriously hard to get paid for your work unless you have a lot of viewers really early.  Yet, that isn’t the real reason I put these creations out.  It is a labor of love.  Still, these projects all fit together and they need each other to be complete themselves.

One of the other projects I’m working on, is the second book in the GlymyreScape series called “The GlymyreScape Game Master’s Guide”.  It has more advanced instruction in the GlymyreScape game, of which The GlymyreScape Player’s Manual only has the basic rules.  Right now, I’m working on the ‘super metals’ forged by the Dwarves, Juanian Elves, and Stadthent Gnomes.  This book is still considered a supplement to the player’s manual, so you’ll need to read that one first.

The third project I’m working on, is the outline of the first novel in the “Glymyre Songs” series.  It will follow the adventures of Chimfaidar, Chirard’s human friend we met on page 7 and 8 of the first issue of Glymyre Tales.  I plan for the volumes of both series to come back together at both their stories end.  But not to worry; I’m planning on a lot of volumes for both.

So, that’s why I’m slower with the updates, but I think these productions will be that much better for it.

Thanks for reading.
