«A written word...is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself...not only (to) be read but actually breathed from all human lips:-not be represented on canvas or in marble only, but be carved out of the breath of life itself.»
Henry David Thoreau
Welcome to the pages of Amos Keppler - Storyteller.
First of all, prepare to think, to break out of labels and confines.
You'll find stories here, from the edge of imagination and Beyond. Short stories, poems, death and life side by side, two sides of the same face, distinct perhaps, but not so different. A hand stretched beyond the velvet veil, separating present day humans from their ancient, primal self.
Diversity and Hunger is hidden in the Shadow.
