Short Story of the Month
“Even your grandfather, Chaplainix, as a proper Celt, knew that there are some threats to our existence,” said chieftain Conquiscadorix to young field druid, with sorrow in his voice. “He also said that even if pagan fetishes are only pseudophillosophy, when we are on visit, be it conquering or not, we have to respect their traditions. Truth be told, he was one of those who pulled beards of Roman’s Elderly, but there was no danger there.”
Being of the Month
When the Gods made up the world and its inhabitants, they mistakenly gave one species a little more than they wanted. Huge power as well as high intelligence and ability of using them.

Quote of the Month

— Neil Gaiman. Coraline

Welcome to my world. For the longest time I couldn’t think of right name for this place, so I left it without one. Amongst things you can find here are attempts of science fiction and fantasy stories, my collection of gods, bogeymen and monsters and also articles about things that had me interested, be it for a while or for years. (There is more of this, sadly not in English but in Czech, on www.fext.cz)
