Waiting for Auberon
A young man finds himself drawn into a conversation with an old woman sitting on a boardwalk bench on a summer evening. As he listens to the story that she tells, he realizes that she may not be all she seems to be.

Long and long ago, when the stars were new and the trees we think of as old were still just tiny seeds and acorns, there lived a Lady and a Lord, and they made their home in a Sacred Grove. They were known to people all across the world by different names. Some people called them Ceridwen and Cernunnos; some called them Asherah and El; some called them Zeus and Hera; but there was one person in the entire world who had a special name for them: she called them "Mother" and "Father".

Tales from the Wilder Forest
The Maple's New Dress
As everyone knows, in the Wilder Forest there live the Dryads, the spirits of the wood, who make their homes in the trunks of trees. What you may not know (and what I am here to tell you) is a secret that the People of the Trees have kept safe for many years: Every single tree, no matter how ancient and tall, no matter how tiny and young, is the home to one of the People.
Not all of them are Dryads, of course, for a Dryad is always female. But most every Dryad has a brother, and those brothers are called the Dru. This is the tale of one Dru in particular. His name is Ottum.
The Sundering of Hyvus
One of the greatest dangers of the world is when a gentle soul has everything taken from him, and he reaches within and finds that all his art, all his poetry, all his craft were merely ways to channel what darkness he carries in a positive way. When Hyvus loses all he has, the world discovers what it is like to feel the wrath of one who was kind.
