WINOC THE TRAVELER

No title

By Docmars, author of Adventures in the Pirate Continent

Dec 14, 2017: winoc is a man attempting to make his way in the barren, unfeeling world. Do you read fantasy books? It’s a tale of exciting adventure fantasy, it’s a tale of a self-made man and it’s a tale of people dealing with trauma and how to survive all the beautiful, thick, lovely fantasy coating.

TOUCH

No title

By Docmars, author of Adventures in the Pirate Continent

Dec 14, 2017: Boy, this is a depressing one. In a good way. It’s about several kids who have suffered abuse forming, gaining super powers. Until I read it, I didn’t really get how good of a metaphor that is because superheroes are people who have odd, traumatic experiences that happen to them and they now perceive the world in a fundamentally different way that not all people are like just people who haven’t experienced what they’ve experienced can’t. That is a powerful metaphor that I think a lot of people really experience but, oh, man. This was part of a swap and I like this quite a bit but I’m having trouble reading about these sorts of things. It’s great. I love it. I’ll definitely go back to it at some point but not for a while. I will recommend it wholeheartedly.

EXISTENTIAL TERROR AND BREAKFAST

No title

By Docmars, author of Adventures in the Pirate Continent

Dec 14, 2017: This is the type of story where you get up and you stare at something for a while in a way that never really occurred at you to stare at before. Existential chair breakfast is an interesting and odd little odd story of Malcolm, a simple, lonely man who lives in a simple, quite lonely world, who, one day, when staring at a piece of toast, comes to the realization that his entire life is pointless and terrible and awful in all those ways. If that sounds funny to you, then you’re on the exact right wavelength for this sort of thing.

I found it funny. It’s real funny, actually, in a lot of ways, that only an author who can write really funny, bleak things can truly kind of get. It gets the great, terrible fear that the world is for a lot of people, and I would give this a solid recommend.
