For 300,000 years hunters hunted, gatherers gathered, they sometimes mated. Then something happened.


They got civilized


This is that story.


Tallstone and the City: A New Heaven and Earth, Second Edition tells the simple story of two members of the Clan of the Serpent from their birth through their death-Pumi the stonecutter and Valki the gatherer. Pumi and Valki, through innocent altruistic acts of living, invent sex, create a city, domesticate wheat, establish science, create animal husbandry, and thereby lay the foundation of civilization.

They meant no harm.


This is the first in the six book series, The Beginning of Civilization: Mythologies Told True. It is a character driven suis generalis series with unbroken narrative written in crisp, inviting language touched with poetry stripped of ornamentation that explores the fears and desires of flawed everyday people whose lives and exploits, told and retold through the ages, gave rise to our traditions and mythologies and whose accumulated failures and lessons unlearned haunt and bring us to where we are today. Each book, like life and civilization, grows more complex and conflicted from the simple, predictable first book through the conflicted, sprawling, multi-generational sixth.
