Welcome to Anieth, the heart of story motif, studies in ancient science, music, crafts and music.

A world where our stories are strung like lights in our orphaned folklore darkness.
Welcome to the Quicken King, a story of a slave who fights to win her place in the world, only to be condemned to die because she is no longer human. A story of shape-shifters searching for a stolen child, and the terrible choice that child must make.
Welcome to Anieth, a world of an ancient wilderness, populated with werewolves, dryads, and witchcraft.

Welcome to Anieth, where two cultures are colliding with impossible destinies for those crushed between. A world of a rising dark age where religious superstition will overpower science. Welcome to the layers of knowledge, of articles about archeoastronomy, studies of symbolism, and explanations of magic. A world where poetry runs side by side with science, and magic becomes deep spirituality.

The story of a man, who is given a wild chance to live his life over again so he can change.
And welcome to Anieth, a world where form is dependent on mind not shape and the dances of man shift with dreams.
Welcome to Wolven, a story begun in 1983. A story of a girl who is the daughter of no one and everyone, looking for her roots. A story of the wolf that follows her and haunts her memories. The story of the multi-shapers and their persecution through the Wood. A book where all is gained an all is lost.
And welcome to Anieth, a world where players' dreams come true, some to distraction, others to woe. Where the world is not the world and shapes are not what they appear. A world of illusion and larger truth.

Welcome to a world, written with love, drawn with care, for those who delight in story.
These books appeal to all ages, but some of our passionate readers are 11-16. They make fabulous gifts for kids. All the books are drawn by hand and then enter pre-press in PhotoShop in a black and white style similar to Manga, but more realistic. They are printed locally. Each book is 200 pages and appropriate for anyone twelve and up. Most of our readers re-read the books over and over, seeing more in the symbolism and interconnected stories with each read.
The books are graphic and stand alone. We recommend for first reading Rivenskin, the Quickenking, or the Killing Tree for good entry books into the world.
