After more years than I want to admit, I am finally releasing my novel for people to read and comment on. If you wish, I ask you to read my story and distribute to fellow science-fiction fans. I am curious what people think of the story and the overall flow of the novel. If anyone knows of an agent or editor, I would be in your debt if you could pass it on to them for consideration. I am willing to re-write, edit, or change aspects of the story to improve it or make it more marketable.
You can download this PDF with the link below. I do not have a smart phone or one of the many electronic book readers and would be curious on how it appears and translates into the various formats:

Digging through all of my old notes and boxes of APA stuff, I came across a very detailed character sheet. This baby has it all, but it is 4 pages in length — if you taped it up correctly, it would be a nice double-sides 11 x 17 sheet!
This character sheet is provided as a PDF here: PA4_Csheet
Very early last year I wrote a simple little game of monster vs. monster, I called Monster Fandango. It wasn’t a very complicated set of rules, but it did have some varying strategies. I am revising the rules to a 3rd edition and renaming the game to “Phantasm Phandango” to commemorate some recent events with the game Advanced Phantasm Adventures.
I will hopefully be posting some updates to the new game, which in some ways will be streamlined and in other ways will see additional development.
My hopes is that the simple little board game can be used prior to TRPG game days, while waiting for all the players to assemble — an always fractious period where people often can splinter off into other games or waste considerable amount of time not gaming.
Just a working template for a character sheet. This sheet provides all the basic entries needed to be filled out for a character in Phantasm Adventures.

With the recent flushed success of Phantasm Adventures, I am back into writing some new ideas for the long dormant game. I am hoping that I can get some feedback from anyone interested in playing the game again.
I still think the game needs a more comprehensive description of the lands of Monokan, as well as a thorough timeline. I am also thinking of creating more creatures & monsters to flush out the limited bestiary.
What thoughts do anyone have on TRPG (table-top Role Playing Games)? How many still play? How often?
After discovering my spoils of original 3rd edition manuscripts, I also found a box of a dozen other rules that I had been working on from 1987 to 2000. Most of these games are half complete, and often in such a chaotic order that even when I looked at them I could not make heads or tails out of them.
I also found startling enough, some royalty free artwork which I planned to use as covers to my games. They all look very nice and must have come from a single artists — I am unsure who, but I do remember either buying or finding them with the condition that they were royalty free.
In the coming months, I am hoping to resurrect some of these games and put them up. It will be a challenge to support them, and even more so interesting to see if anyone even takes a look at them.
The internet can be such a great audience, but it is also like trying to find one person in a Colosseum of 200,000 people — shouts and waves are simply lost in the sea of bodies and indiscriminate voices.
I ask everyone who comes visit here to spread the word and to find use for these little treasures. I am more than willing to answer questions.

Here is book 2 of the 3rd edition of Phantasm Adventures, in all of its glory. I hope you will click on the below link and download the pdf to read through.
It has been many years since anyone has really thought about generating a character and playing the game. I would be more than happy to answer any question concerning the game.

This is the first book of the 3rd edition rules of Phantasm Adventures. It contains all the rules to generate and equip the character. It is a rich source of fantastic material that covers race, clans, social hierarchy, skills, background options, and equipment.

This is not the third book for the 3rd edition rules, but more like a prequel to the 3rd edition. It fits into the overall scheme of the game, with some additional rules that are not present in the 3rd edition.
