  1. Refugee : Part Four - From Sea to Sea. 4. Refugee

    By William King, in Fiction. 10/10/2017 (Updated: 10/20/2017)

    Life can be very unpredictable and tragedy may strike at any time. To hope for a future when your heart is wrought with pain, when even a miserable existence offered a love that was torn away, it seems an impossible dream.

  2. Neon

    By William King, in Fiction. 08/24/2017 (Updated: 10/08/2017)

    Neon.

    Neon (meaning new) – is the forth most abundant element in the universe, but rare on Earth, found at 1 part in 65,000. 
    It is an element which doesn’t like to react, because the outermost shell of electrons orbiting the nucleus is full, giving no incentive to swap with other elements. Produced through fractional distillation, the chill factor makes neon important. A high electric charge excites the neon and it glows as it returns to its neutral state.
    It’s inertness makes it long-lasting. 

  3. Refugee : Part Three - The Kingdom of Heaven. 3. Refugee

    By William King, in Fiction. 08/27/2017 (Updated: 09/17/2017)

    Samir, Amar, and Firas have reached Europe, but it is not at all a promise fulfilled. Their journey and struggle continues and the choices made to survive have dire consequences. There are new friends, but there are also wolves in sheep’s clothing. The Kingdom of Heaven in the title is but a cynical euphemism for what in reality is the exact opposite.


    But Jesus said, suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

  5. Refugee : Part One - Exodus. 1. Refugee

    By William King, in Fiction. 04/06/2017 (Updated: 06/03/2017)
