This novella is the first piece of my novella series, called Cinderlight. The novellas published so far aren’t in chronological order, but if you want the full picture regarding the protagonists’ lives and adventures, you can read the previous parts here: Fay, Family Visit and Revival.
Readers are divided concerning the matter of actors slipping their opinion in their books. On political/social issues or various events happening in the world. Some like it, some think advisable not to. As for one, I’m in the former team.
Please be noted that this is the 5th chapter of my ongoing novel Disparities. If you haven’t read the first four chapters, you can find the other parts here.
Trigger warning: there are severe injuries and amputated limbs (even the graphic description of the procedure) waiting ahead, so if you my be triggered by contents like this, proceed with caution.
For starters, I read a lot. I read during my free time, my daily commute, even during my bath-room breaks at my work place. So I think I have a lot of experiences regarding reading; what and how should one read in different circumstances.

Originally I wanted to choose a ghost story for this spooky post, but all the ghost books I read recently was Christmas stories, so they do not really fit in the Halloween season. Then it occurred to me that I’ve read a book with a story taking place in an asylum. And an asylum is by definition spooky, not to mention the end of 19th centuries setting and atmosphere. Add to this mix the Victorian era with its strictly religious, God fearing beliefs and you will find yourself in a horror movie set.
This post will be a bit unusual, because it will be mainly about book covers, as the title suggests. Who has not heard the saying “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”? So I decided to make a list about good books with awful covers, thus I’m quite sure there is an abundance of bad books with ugly covers and bad books with brilliant covers. Maybe in the future I will make a list for the other two categories too.
Disclaimer: This novella is the second exerpt from my novella circle called Cinderlight. You can find the fist part here and the third here. Since Tom and Alex like to share the episodes of their life in a nonlinear chronological order, they decided to show me an interlude now. The exerpts can be read as a stand-alone, but if you want the full picture of their lives I recommend to read the novellas in chronological order.
Can fan-fictions be considered as literature of value?
This post will be somewhat unusual compared to my previous posts. This week I decided not to choose a book, but to get to the bottom of the secret realm of fan-fictions. There are a lot of questions and skepticism around fan-works, and I want to find some answers to them. Like might or might not fan-fictions represent any literary value? Can those novels or novellas be real piece of arts without the bias caused by the pre-created fandoms?
This is the second part of my novella, Believing is Seeing. Talbott’s story is heavily built on the first part, so if you did not read that storyline, you can check it out on this link.
Ha Aadennek három lépésben kellett volna összefoglalnia Kirikkel való kapcsolatát, meglepően könnyű dolga lett volna. Mert bármennyire is furcsa az ő párosuk, mégis mintha az egész univerzum minden történésével egymás gravitációjába taszította volna őket.
