New Professionally Published Edition! Features greatly improved cover art and graphics, better maps, new appendices including a recurring character list with descriptions and first appearance notes, proofreading by six editors to eliminate every typo, and professional editing including chapter breaks.
Kellaran is a mighty world many times larger than the Earth, its technology is almost entirely magical, and it is home to many modern and advanced societies. The humans, unicorns, dragons, elves, dwarves, giants, gnomes, selkies, and gargoyles each have their own powerful nations.
Many fantasy novels have central events that are supposed to affect the entire world, yet they are only described as affecting a part of one continent. The Nexus Of Kellaran Series is a story with true global scope; an epic of world-changing events, all interacting in a frantic global crisis.
It's a story that is cheering and emotionally uplifting. It seldom seems emotionally dark, though it sometimes deals with tragic events.
The magic in the story is self-consistent, and is as consistent as possible with real physics and physical constants.
This novel contains adult themes, and deals with issues of sexuality. It is not recommended for those under 14 years of age.
Many of the readers of this fantasy series also loved this author's science fiction series. Even many who had never read or enjoyed science fiction before were so impressed with The Nexus Of Kellaran Series that they then tried The Rational Future Series, and loved it just as much. The Rational Future Series; People Of The Tiger, Hunters In The Sky, and Victory Or Extinction are available now.

This review is from: Blessings Of A Curse - Metric Pro. Edition (The Nexus Of Kellaran Series)
This book was incredible. A I read it, I was immersed in another world. The main character's evolution from a total neophyte to an accomplished master kept me riveted, and I was hooked. I have also read the second book in the series and I am anxiously awaiting the final book. This book, series and author will expand your horizons. Please give the book a try and you too will come to know what makes his writing so addictive.

This is my first review I've done and it's mainly because I haven't felt compelled to until now. Grave unjustice would be done to this incredible author if someone doesn't comment on how f-ing awesome this book truly is. Let me put it this way, only two books have I read that I enjoyed more than this book! Truly a modern masterpiece.

read the metric version before realizing the usa version was free as well and had to bear through the metric version. Love the book and would have loved chapters, just to be able to give myself a stopping point between reads.

About the Author
Wayne Edward Clarke is an author, sociologist, musician, and inventor. Over the last few years I've spent most of my intellectual and creative energies in writing science fiction and fantasy novels. I’ve been a hard sci-fi fan my whole life, but everyone else I know who’s an avid reader are all fantasy fans. Over the years I’ve borrowed all their books, and learned to love that genre as well. My science fiction influences include the old masters; Heinlein, Asimov, Niven, Bradbury, Clarke, etc. Also William Gibson, Iain M. Banks, and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. My favorite relatively unknown author is Daniel Keyes Moran, and if you like sci-fi you should read his Continuing Time trilogy; Emerald Eyes, The Long Run, and The Last Dancer. They might be out of print, but I think you can still get them as ebooks online. My fantasy influences include Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings, and Jaqueline Carey. I’ve also been influenced as a fiction writer by my sociological work, and my science fiction novel People Of The Tiger (and the rest of The Rational Future Series) is set in a utopian future where my social policies have been implemented, which is a good way to get those ideas out into the public consciousness. Much of my social thinking permeates my fantasy novel Blessings Of A Curse as well, though it’s a lot harder to notice there. I’ve also incorporated my ideas on the law and legal reform in that book. I was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on Sept 21, 1963. I'm estranged from my father, having met him twice since I was a toddler. I lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from 1980 to 2014, since then I've lived in Cebu, Philippines. Now I can travel where I want, and I might, at any time. But it's hard to beat the Philippines. I have three brothers and a sister. My sister is married, she and her husband each have two grown sons. All of them and my mother live in Calgary, except me and one nephew here in Cebu. I'm intensely and compulsively self-educated, I read at about 300 words per minute, and I've increased my IQ to about 160. I've always enjoyed inventing and designing machines. Most of the machines I've designed are new types of vehicles. I was a professional musician for about nine years. My musical skills include lead and harmony vocals, most styles of guitar and bass guitar, some drums and keyboards, songwriting, mixing, and production. I spent about fifteen years researching and designing a comprehensive change in society and culture that will solve all the world’s major problems, guided by the principles of bio-sociology as introduced and developed by Prof. Edward O. Wilson, and influenced by Dr. Desmond Morris’ human sociobiology. I haven't worked on it like a fanatic over the last eighteen years like I did for the previous fifteen, but I have continued to develop my work in this field. Wayne Edward Clarke May 26, 2017.
