Lost & Found

Post by Shadowhawk » Fri May 20, 2005 1:31 am

I was thinking for a long time about companion thread to "Links to good reading...", namely "Lost & Found" thread, when we can describe the stories (or, in general, any sites and/or novels), and approximate location, with the hope that somebody there can have more luck in finding it. This should NOT be substitution for http://www.google.com (or any other search engine).

To admins: Could you make this thread sticky, preferably positioning it just below "Links to good reading..."? TIA.

To users: please mark requests (and answers) for erotic stories as such.

I read a great story in progress many years ago and lost the url.  I have tried to find it many times but have never been able to relocate it through a search.  It was written by an Australian college student.  I cant even remember the hero's name (Something Corwyn or so).  Hero is a hermit living in the wilderness (fled to escape memories and civilization after wife and sister are murdered while he is away).  In the dead of winter a woman shows up on his door step wounded.  He takes her in and nurses her.  Her enemies show up bust in his door and try to kill them both.  She wrangles him into taking her back to civilization.  They are follow and hunted my more of the enemy.  They have big hounds that have a poisonous bite.  He is a crack shot with his bow.  Turns out hes has magic potential and doesnt know it.  He is also immune to the dog's poison.  If anyone know's the story would appreciate you pointing me to the URL.  Thanks

My bet is that you would be looking for story "Magic Gate", unfortunately the last time the story was updated was somewhere in 2001 or 2000.

There's only fourteen chapters of it at the moment. I followed the development of this story from the very start. It took him some two or three years to push out five chapters in the last update :p

But I think it's dead now.

Long, long time ago I have read the erotic story.

It began with main character (narrator, male) watching enraptured his best friend smoking. Noticed fascination led to sex, then to dumping boyfriend by mentioned best friend. Main character didn't believed this wasn't dream, or one-time occurence. There was seduction to the "Satin Doll" song. The story wasn't that long, but was quite good.

I think I have found it on old http://www.hardcorestories.com (the site was since 'hijacked'), but searches in Internet Archive (aka. WayBack Machine) didn't give results.

I send a E-mail to the Author and got a Reply back from him ..

Here's his Reply
===========================
Hi there

More chapters are being published soon, but as the length of the novel plans
to be quite long, I imagine it wouldn't finish any time soon.

Apology for such a long delay between the chapters - I will get there. ;>

regards
Earnest


===============================

It appears he's still working on it maybe he'll post more soon

And in the fury of this darkest hour
I will be your light
A lifetime for this destiny
For I am Winter born
And in this moment..I will not run
It is my place to stand
We few shall carry hope
Within our bloodied hands
(bloodied hands)
And in our Dying, we're more alive-than we have ever been
I've lived for these few seconds
For I am Winter born

Ok, this is a good challenge.

I finished reading a novel online in about 98?-99?

It was a crossover of everything from Nightbane, Highlander, Gargoyle, Vampire, Werewolf, and Faerie, as well as some plain magic and even Wraith.

Main hero was called Percy, a greek immortal who used a titianium laminated serrated gladius. Other notable immortals were Methos, Duncan (who died), and the Kurgen (who got better it seems).

story was about the world ending (again) but basically, the immortals were mystical batteries who used themselves to fuel a counterspell to close off a rip in the fabric of reality.  The Wylde is mentioned at one point.

I know the story was finished, I can recall most of the story, but I REALLY wanna read it again.  I can't remember the title though.   If anyone could point me out to it, that would be great. (I remember it was hosted on a university ip, so I expect it was a student.)

Here's to hope.
I'd gladly travel back in time, except I would have to wait longer for the next chapter of Fel's work...sorry, pass.

hmmm
As for me it's a scifi novel I loved reading, but can't remember the title nor the author

The story start with the discovery of an Alien monster who basicaly ate his way through a planet. it happens that he has pretty strong psionic powers. the  alien later goes to earth where it starts devouring his way through Africa. it's  pretty much unstoppable and there's nothing the human race can do The story revolves around psionic powers, and later on in the story, it's discovered that the monster in question is a child of an even more powerfull race, and it's imprisoned in our galaxy. there's huge wall surounding the whole galaxy purpotely to stop it from wandering away, but also to stop any "inferior" race to get into the rest of the universe. the story ends, when humans finaly break that barrier through the use of their own evolved psionic powers. rings a bell? I would love to get my hand on that book again

OK Cool Sticky I'm slow getting around to reading recently...

I want to find some books I read in the early eighties. They were paperback Sci-Fic's. The hero was a young man born here earthside. I seem to remember he was found by a fellow adult psionic who was aggrivated by his mental crying.. He had enourmous telepathic/Psionic types of talent. He used to keep pebbles in his pockets which he used as weapons teleporting them through enemies as missiles etc.... he did travel to other worlds I remember one was a water based place where the main species was a sponge or coral I think. Anyway there were at least three or four of these book maybe more. But I dont remember the names of characters or authors or titles, the book covers were quite colorful.....

Any ideas and or help greatly appreciated folks...

Thanks in advance.

John

Was the main character named Cat? Sounds a little bit like the Joan D. Vinge series that went Psion, Catspaw, Dreamfall... I really love that series. I wish she would continue the story.
