The City of the Drowned Short Story -Book Review

Finneas Ryder Book Review Short Story The City of the Drowned Nick Alimonos 2006 I was excited to receive this short story to review this month. I had read some of Mr. Alimonos’ work before, but admittedly it was just in bits and pieces and I had never completed any of his full works. It was not because I didn’t appreciate his style or concept, it was because I wasn’t allowing myself time to read for pleasure. Well let me say this off the bat, that was a huge mistake on my part. I have to say that the science fiction and fantasy genre has always been one of my favorite styles of writing. I enjoy the true escapism that the genre allows the reader when it is well thought out and written. The City of the Drowned is a perfect example of this. This piece opens with a prologue that gives us a look into the background of our female protagonist, Thelana. I had a bit of difficulty tying the prologue into the main …

Happy Nude Year! Wait…what? It’s not even Christmas

So, it is official, I am declaring December 1 the beginning of my new nude year! For the last few years I have spent the majority of my time, and my energy, caring for others. Mind you, this is not a complaint, I am a natural giver and it brings me great joy to be able to take care of someone else. However, somewhere along the way, I started giving too much of myself away.  I lost touch with the real me. I had forgotten what made me truly happy; the things that made my soul sing, even the simplest things like being clothes free at home, having a circle of like-minded friends, reading for fun.  Told ya, simple. Then, I woke up.

Naked Crow -Review

Naked Crow : P. Z. Walker Published January 28, 2014 What would you do if your friend were to disappear? You would do everything you could do to find them wouldn’t you? What if that same friend was a naturist, and disappeared at a naturist resort and you weren’t a naturist? That adds an interesting twist, right? That is the situation that we find in P.Z. Walker’s “Naked Crow.” Josy, a dental hygienist, and naturist, disappears on a regular weekend visit to her local resort “Mighty Oaks.” Her friend Sheila is our main companion on this journey of discovery; not only the one of trying to find her friend, but also one of her understanding and embracing naturism. We are also introduced to a supporting cast of characters from Mike, the “caveman” who both works and resides at Mighty Oaks, to Wendy, Sheila’s friend and Mike’s love interest, as well as several others. The story begins just before Josy’s disappearance, so we are introduced to the relationship that she and Sheila share. We also learn that …
