A Thousand Secret Sorrows –
A thousand feet underground.
A billion years from Earth.
A week to live.Keldin gave up everything to survive: his career, his community, his
family. He was beaten, mutilated, and poisoned. He traveled to an alien
world, passed through fire and ice and darkness and a mile of solid
rock.Armed with only the barest of tools and the briefest of training, he
walks abandoned tunnels, groping in the dust for abandoned memories. He
painstakingly unwinds the tapestry of nine billion lives, looking for a
single thread: Ennun, humanity’s savior.As a child, Ennun was a homeless refugee and an expatriate. He grew to
become an explorer, a soldier, and the heir to a kingdom. Then he
abandoned paradise, abandoned everything, to save humanity.Then he disappeared.For hundreds of years, the greatest historians have scoured the world
for the key to understand him.If Keldin can’t find it in one week, he will die alone on an alien
world.Matthew Kagle Bio –

The Loom of Sorrows-
Earth was dying.

Clouds of blood and lightning killed billions, squeezing humanity to the
equator and extinction. There was only one place to go: a planet named
Joshua 20.

It was a desert world of scalding steam and crushing ice. A few minutes
under the giant suns would burn you to ash. A few seconds in the darkest
night would freeze you solid.

Humanity burrowed underground and turned on itself. People became
brutal, cruel, selfish. One man escaped that, became selfless, led
humanity back home, and then disappeared.

Nobody knows the reason why.

For two hundred years, the memory of that reason lay hidden in the sand
like a shard of glass. Uncovered by accident, it buried itself in the
brain of its discoverer.

He has two weeks to understand it, to unlock the life and motives of its
owner, or it will kill him.
