The Adventures of Medb hErenn
Heroic & Dark Fantasy and Science Fiction Character created by Kevin L. O'Brien
hy do writers write stories? For the plain and simple fact that they have stories to tell. But the raison d'etre for being a writer is to have people read your stories. If you write only for your own pleasure and amusement, and have no real interest in showing your work to others (except perhaps a few close friends and/or relatives), then you are not really a writer, but a diarist. Your journal is simply more elaborate than most other people's.
This simple, indisputable fact is the underlying reason for this page. Here you will find links to excerpts from stories being written, to out-of-print stories, to serials of unpublished stories, and to works published on the Internet. You will also find links to reviews as they become available; illustrations, maps, and diagrams; and outlines and synopses of novels and future stories.
Did you enjoy the stories? Did you hate them? Was their something about any of them you particularly liked or disliked? Would you like to comment on any of them? Kevin L. O'Brien is always interested in receiving feedback. If you are interested, please use the contact form for this site.
