SciFaiKu – Genes

A Scifaiku Poem by Wendy Van Camp

gene for traveling
popping among my time stream
trapped in the family tree

Time travel has always been a favorite science fiction concept for me. I am drawn to the paradox of such stories. I ended up writing a series of scifaiku on the topic, drawing from this well known trope.

This poem is a part of the scifaiku poetry series about time travel which appeared in “Far Horizons”. This was a magazine of science fiction stories, art, and speculative poetry.

Regency Romance Austen Style – The Curate’s Brother

The Curate’s Brother: A Jane Austen Variation of Persuasion
by Wendy Van Camp

Available on Amazon

A Regency Historical based on the characters and settings from Jane Austen’s novel Persuasion. It can serve as a stand-alone or a prequel to Austen’s book.

It is the summer of 1806 in Somerset, England.

EDWARD WENTWORTH, a young curate, is surprised by the arrival of his brother, Commander FREDERICK WENTWORTH, the “hero of San Domingo”, who is on shore leave from his battles in the Napoleonic wars and has come to spend time with the only family he has in England.

All the good Commander wants to do is flirt and dance with the ladies until he is called back to sea, but when his flirting extends to SALLY MARSHALL, an outgoing beauty that Edward always disdained as “a child”, the curate becomes aware that his opinion of Sally is sorely outdated. Meanwhile, Frederick becomes drawn to shy wallflower ANNE ELLIOT. She is the daughter of a baronet and above his station, but Frederick pays no heed to his brother’s warnings that class may prevent their union.

At the end of summer, a letter and package arrive that will change everything for the two brothers. Which will prevail? The bold action of the commander or the quiet manners of the curate?
