Welcome to Further Reaches
Below are recent innovations in the science fiction short story under my pen name of Jeremy Balfour. You can also find a free recording on Tarot cards and Qabalah and a free Qur'an.
Beauty Fierce as Stars
Here we attempt, within the pages of nineteen short stories, to answer questions rarely asked, and indulge your fantasies. In "Caligula the Mad" we find time moving in reverse, yet where will it end? In one story the close encounter is scrutinized more closely. In another pair of stories, a lonely life proceeds after the final holocaust. On a distant satellite, a lone physicist hopes to survive a dangerous, but beautiful, intruder. A woman looks at the stars and mourns for lost love into old age. A whimsical Greek hero single-handedly defeats the 4th Reich. The interior of the Earth is discovered, followed by a completely comic interlude. Then we have five stories in a cycle, as a modern Sherlock Holmes comes out of seclusion to battle the criminally insane with intrepid ruses and masterful subterfuge. Follows is a deadly race beyond the crumpling of the universe, as a little child assumes the unlikely role of heroine. Finally, two of the apostles have a mysterious confrontation with another world shortly after the Crucifixion.
These are stories that take science-fiction to the next level, and provide unique entertainment for any reader.

"Stars That Fall to Earth"
"Stars That Fall to Earth" is the companion volume to "Beauty Fierce as Stars." Here we go a step further into the fantastic in journeys of delight and the unexpected, including eight stories and three novellas. From a murder mystery and a horror story to unmitigated comedy, this volume succeeds where its counterparts have failed, and truly breaks down the bounds of the imagination. Bumbling stooges face the ultimate alien menace, the final holocaust is reexamined, the secrets of Sigmund Freud are revealed, and the title story is an unparalleled romp through a most bizarre future of good and evil, complemented by the unlikely turn and interludes of rhyming verse. Compelling characters capture and hold a unique fascination, and you will be left wanting more.
