Aurelian, an exile from the militaristic nation of Akkahellonia, finds himself lost in the jungles of a rival nation and, following a brush with death, is brought into a subterranean world where the residents have all been changed by a machine thought lost a millennia ago. After falling victim to the machine and its possessor, Aurelian must summon the will to overcome his physical limitations and utilize a curse of blood in an attempt to escape from the valley and return to the surface world.
Here is the first story set on the water planet Triton and its Celestial Isles. Inspired by the myths and legends created by pulp fiction masters Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and H.P. Lovecraft, the Triton Tales blend science, magic, and adventure as they tell the stories of the heroic men and women who struggle against extra-natural forces seeking to corrupt their world.

About the Author
E. David Anderson is originally from Maine, but currently lives outside of Baltimore with his wife and daughter. He likes heroes who have the inner strength to be good in a time when morally gray characters are more popular and wishes he didn't have to drive an hour away to get Korean food. He obsesses too much on football and not enough on cleaning the house, and between tutoring gigs he manages to squeeze in a little bit of writing to validate the college degrees he isn't using. His influences include Steinbeck, Faulkner, H.P.Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the magical-realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
