They look soft, insubstantial, but they are hard as stone,
    thank you so much @ayatinstitute – and my apologies for the tardy response: i've been travelling for a bit (though not, this time, through the solar system... ;-) )

    thanks @fudgetusk for the differentiated response: this, in many ways, is exactly what, if anything, the story means to achieve. a personal, individual reaction. and yours, in so many respects, couldn't be more perfect: a qualified appreciation with quite a bit of resistance to it, at first, maybe even resentment (anger?) at elements of it, but then you make it your own and find references and resonances that i couldn't even think of. and

    is possibly the best compliment i could wish for. i don't care whether one percent of one percent of potential readers ever read this story, or a few more or a few less: if one or two feel this is unlike anything they've read before, my 'job', as it were, with this piece of writing is done. thanks!

    The Ice King Now Also on Kindle and as ePub

    Hello Friends

    For those of you who like to have your short stories in a neat tablet reader format, The Ice King is now also available on Kindle and as ePub (for iPad, Kobo, Nook, among others), and of course if you'd like to own it as a handsome paperback, you'll find it here, or, if you want to avoid Amazon, you can easily order it through your local bookstore (ISBN 978-1-64255-445-8) or find an alternative online provider here.

    Obviously, you can continue reading it here, though the text has since been polished up a bit and corrected in places, and as I can't edit old entries on this forum you'd have to head over to EDENbyFREI for the latest and (I hope, if not last) currently best version.

    Thanks for your continued support & interest and

    Enjoy!

    FREI
