Favorite Story and Book Websites
Sennadar is the forum site for the author who wrote the Tarrin Kael, Jason Fox, Kit Vulpan and other stories.
The Baen Library is a website that offers free books of many different authors from the Baen Publishing house. This is a good place to read books to see if you like some authors works.
Then there is the traditional book store, Barnes and Noble. I like to promote brick and mortar books stores over amazon any day. I remember Mobipocket. That is why.
There is an author, who goes by the name of Fel. He releases his stories, chapter by chapter to the internet. This page has links to his sites and to files of his stories. They vary in genres, including fantasy and sci-fi. In my own humble opinion, I believe that Fel has written novels and epics that rival the works of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings or Frank Herbert's Dune series. He would be as popular and as well known, if only he could get these published. Several of these books are comparable in length to the epic story Les Miserable's, or longer. And, all of these stories have been posted for free on the internet.
Fel has created several universes. The story of Tarrin Kael is one. This is a universe of fantasy (mythology, were-wolves, were-cats and other were animals, powerful wizard magic and sorcery to name a few items). Tarrin, his life and world are changed in drastic ways. Follow him as he adjusts to his new life and overcomes many obsticals
The author also has written in other genres. One is a science fiction tale, based on earth in the present or near future. In this story, earth has been conquered by an alien matriarchal empire that has telepathic abilities. This is the story of the Subjugation.
Another story is the life of Kit Vulpan. A young fur who is running from family, pain and life, but runs smack into love in the oddest of places. Only his family is not through terrorizing him yet.
Yet another universe is the story of Kyven Steelhammer. He is a crystal cutter who can see. But, If certain people within his village find out, his life is forfeit. Follow him as he finds his true courage and reason for life. Follow him as he becomes a Spirit Walker.
Another is a story of dragons and magic. The Dragons live on an island governed by a Dragon Council. On this council is one Chromatic dragon, two Sky dragons, two Fire dragons, two Water dragons and two Earth dragons. This council has ruled dragon kind for many years. But, because of treachery, the future of the council is in jeopardy. The treachery of a few dragons to the Earth Bond. Could this treachery endanger or help friends in the United States?
Oh yeah. All of these stories are copyrighted by James Galloway.

Tarrin Kael's Sennadar Universe
The fantasy story that has captured my attention is the Tarrin Kael universe. The epic (and i do mean epic) stories of Tarrin Kael is great reading, if you like fantasy type stories, and don't mind a few typo's. These stories are a little different for the average story from the genre.
Quoting the favorite Selani farewell, "May the winds ever be at your back, and the water that touches your lips be sweet."
*Book 3, Demons Bane is a complete book with 14 chapters as of June 1st, 2007*
Subjugation is a story that centers around Jason Fox and Jyslin Shaddale. The Faey, an alien telepathic race, has taken control of Earth and are using it as a farming colony to supply food for their empire. Jason is a college student who is learning faey technology, but is upset with the faey and their treatment of Earth. Along the way, Jason meets a fiery red head name Jyslin, who takes a fancy to him and will not take no for an answer. There is a problem though. Jyslin is a Faey Imperial Marine. And, marines are not easily deterred. . .
In Insurrection, the Trillanes are at it again. They are once again trying to get earth and Jason. Only this time the end result may be the destruction of the Faey Empire,... and Earth is now a part of the Faey Empire.
Unification and Tribulation, Jason goes on to instruct others that it is not a good idea to irritate him.

A new story that is as riveting as any other story of Fel's. The story is based around the fox Kit Vulpan, who grew up in Boston the scion of a rich 'old money' family. This is the tale of his problems, victories and his independence from his family.
Kit is completed as of March 28th, 2008 errr.... make that was complete new chapters on the way. Fel says, "Kit's something of a running open-ended story, it's not broken into books."
Kyven is an apprentice crystal cutter in a small out of the way village in an area loosely governed by the Loremasters. Little does he know that soon he will be leaving his village, that he grew up in and chased by the Loremasters, hunters, slavers, arcans...

For millenia the dragons of earth have lived more or less harmoniously. Now a few dragons have the idea of controlling the other dragons rather than living in friendship. A few dragons who knowingly destroy the Earth Bond.
* I have discontinued the MS Reader files. Each time that I have installed MS Reader, it corrupted the Word/Mobipocket file import utility. Whether this was on purpose, or just the usual poor coding by M$... If someone really wants to get copies of these books on the old Microsoft Reader .LIT format, then send a private message to Fawks on the Sennadar forums.
