ISSUE #9 -

Tales and Homemade Treats

Here you'll find all the contents that were in issue #9 of the Rahaman Reader

Happy Friday, everyone!

 

I hope you all had a good week. This one was pretty good for me. I'm happy to say that I've been making continual progress in every area that I want.

- Almost done writing my short story collection

- Making significant weekly updates to Rahaman Writng

- Slowly, but surely, getting work done on a trailer for my next book

- Making great connections with new readers and writers (more friends :D)

- And more!

Speaking of Canadians, a Twitter pal, writer, and fellow Leaf, Jon Aaron Sandler is going to be hosting a special event tomorrow at 7pm EST. This event is about telling wonderful stories and eating delicious pirogies! It will be a zoom event, meaning that everyone will be able to see others, ideally. I'm not 100% certain how it will unfold, but I like that. I enjoy jumping into something new and exciting just, to see where it goes.

 

Also, I have a HUGE weakness for pirogies. I literally lived off them for months in college. They weren't only a staple of my diet, but my life!

 

If this sounds fun to you, please show up for the event! The more the merrier! If you need more information, check out Jon's website(linked above), hit him up on Twitter (@JonAaronSandler), or even send him an email at jonaaronsandler@gmail.com

He's a pretty chill dude, and easy to talk to, so no reason to be shy!

As for tales, that of our elderly scholar, Athos Angion, continues! He goes on to recount an adventure from his youth when he explored a majestic, floating city. Click the button below to get the next part of the SSS series!

And as the final note for this week's newsletter, the exciting conclusion to my most recent poll!

 

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been pursuing feedback on what story to upload to Rahaman Writing next. This concluded in a poll between the top two contenders.

 

Burning Blood versus Absolute Precision.

 

And Burning Blood won!

 

I was just going to let the loser of the poll dissipate back into the pages of my upcoming collection, only to see the light of a reader's curious eyes after the book being published. But the poll was so close (9 to 7!) that I could not just leave people hanging.

 

So, here's the runner up. Absolute Precision in all of it's blunt weirdness.

Fair warning though, the perspective change is jarring!

"Approaching the docks, we heard the violent smashing of wood and the clanging of metal being pounded through the cold veil of white mist that hung in the air by the coast. With a sudden gust, the pale haze cleared to reveal a beast from the brine like none I had seen before or after my time on Kioshell Island. It was roughly the same size as the fishing ship that had ferried me here and was in the process of tearing apart a vessel of similar proportions with a cold fury, pausing only to fling away huge bits of debris or adjust the monstrous maw that was its shell: the living, partially decomposed head of a sky serpent.."
