The Dunjyn Asylum Escape; Free Today

0

Dear SciFi Readers,

My entire life I’ve dreamed of being a writer. Several years ago I pursued that dream. I created Detective Maxx Zeqster, Sesla…The Enchanted Planet, and a lot of other characters that makes my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases work.

The Dunjyn Asylum EscapeSesla is a magical planet within the Whirlpool Galaxy; she’s bewitched and beautiful; just as spectacular as the galaxy she dwells within. She loves and provides for her beloved animals, coteries, and plant life that dwells on her surface and in her mystical seas.

Just as the Whirlpool Galaxy is similar to the Milky Way in many ways, in many ways Sesla appears similar to a very small earth—in some ways. In other ways, she’s very different—very different indeed.

Today I’m giving away free downloads of the fourth book in my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases series, The Dunjyn Asylum Escape. In this youth, SciFi horror book, we join Detective Maxx Zeqster as he travels to the wet lands on a daring, life-threatening, mission to find a cure for Art’s dying parents in Dunjyn Asylum. Will he be successful or will he become another doxer fever mutant?

I hope you take advantage of my free offer and meet Detective Maxx Zeqster, Art Nekuma, and many of the other characters including the Mad Scientist; Dr. Myro Rewqust at Qashlet Lab.

Kinkorx Horned Hares Chasing Another Mesnuk Championship

0

Greetings from Sesla,

Cloudy sky Over Kinkorx

Cloudy Sky Over Kinkorx

I’m J.A. Ireland. I’m sitting at my desk in beautiful downtown Kinkorx while writing my column for the newspapers. It’s an unusually cloudy day. The Kinkorx TV Weather girl, May Willowman, called for rain later this morning. From the looks of the sky, maybe she’s right. It’s been a while since we’ve had rain in this part of the desert. Everything needs water; our reservoirs are a bit low as well.

My column today is about the Kinkorx Horned Hares. As you may know, I follow our local mesnuk team closely and co-announce  home games regularly. It’s always fun to work with Derrix Weyd, Kinkorx TV Sports Anchor. He’s the official voice of the Kinkorx Horned Hares and announces all their games. Stin Gismurr, Kinkorx TV program director, is always there to insure to the quality of the broadcast.

Now that “The Set of Games” has concluded and we’re in “It’s the Rallies” the Horned Hares are chasing another Sesla Mesnuk Championship.

Since Jeqrix Grexenn, the desert furniture giant, purchased the team several years ago, the hares are vastly improved. They’ve even won a Sesla Championship. What a moment that was? I was there and co-announced that game; it was thrilling. In a last minute victory, the hares defeated the Guytic City Fighting Tobacco Farmers. Billionaire owner of the tobaccos, Xuro Qashlet, looked none too happy. His enormous payroll athletes couldn’t overcome the determination of the new, and driven with will-power players for Mr. Grexenn’s team.

Moments after that game, lines began forming inside the gift ships within the stadium. The Horned Hares memorabilia sold out so fast. I was lucky a friend of mine there stashed a mesnuk cap for me. Now that we’re in “It’s the Rallies” and the hares are in I’m wearing mine everyday to support the team.

The Hares are traveling to the wet lands and playing the Guytic City Tobacco Farmers, the defending Sesla champs. That game will be brutal—as always. Xuro Qashlet, the billionaire owner, has the highest payroll of any professional mesnuk team on Sesla. His players are the best; they’re big, fast, and strong.

I spoke with Jeqrix Grexenn recently. He’s confident the hares will be triumphant. He admitted in our brief lunch chat, that he misses Zith Fleen. He feels Zith was the most aggressive player he’s ever had on the team. If you’d like to read that story, I’ve written a novel about it. The Kinkorx Horned Hares Slasher details the tragic story.

It’s time to get back to my column. May Willowman was right—it’s raining. The plants and our reservoirs sure need the water. Until we talk again.

May good fortune guide your path,

J.A. Ireland

Young Maxx Zeqster

Dear Readers,

I’m J.A. Ireland. Here’s an excerpt from The Unthinkable Duo Of Justice. I hope you find it interesting.

Maxx, the 10th grade art student at Kinkorx High School, proudly stood next to his picturesque landscape painting. He was excited to have an example of his work on display at the Art Fair at his high school.

Art Supplies

Maxx’s Landscape Portrait Art Equipment

Every year, Mrs. Watersmyth held her annual Art Fair at the Kinkorx High School where she was the high school art teacher. This year contained possibly her best talent ever. She had several very gifted students who were proudly displaying their best work. Each artist displayed one painting in the show. It was the artist’s own decision to choose a single painting that exemplified their unique artistic talent.

As a tenth grade artist, Maxx proudly stood next to his acrylic painting. On this painting, he used a direct painting technique to apply paint thickly, straight from the tube. This technique gave his landscape portrait an opaque appearance. He then used a sponge to further the application, creating a patterned effect.

The entire gymnasium displayed exciting works from not only Mrs. Watersmyth’s art class, but other area high schools art student’s work as well. It was a splendid show of student art. The area art teachers who had competing art students in the show were the judges.

It was time for the judging. There were five sought after ribbons. The teachers would award the coveted ribbons. Mrs. Watersmyth would serve as the chief judge. Due to the uneven number of judges, she also had the deciding vote. Ultimately, she could decide the winners.

The student artists stood proudly next to their single exhibit as the judging commenced. The teachers slowly made their way through the gymnasium. They carefully scrutinized each painting. They were judging on the overall talent of the artists and on the uniqueness of the painting. In addition, they were interested in how well the artists understood their subject.

Maxx’s anxieties were raging as he impatiently waited for his judging. His hands were sweaty and his face was perspiring. His anxious heart was racing as he waited.

The judges were slowly making their way around the large room. Previously, Mrs. Watersmyth had persuaded him to enter the exhibit. She thought he had real talent as a landscape artist. Since she was the lead judge, he fully expected to win a ribbon. He was inwardly exploding with anticipation.

The judges were slowly making their way down his row. He was bursting with expectation as he wondered. “Could I possibly win first prize?” The idea was enchanting as he anxiously anticipated.

His painting was next. He began to lose his grip. He rubbed his sweaty hands on his casual pants and he quickly and discretely wiped the flowing perspiration from his brow, as his heart raced.

The judges finally walked to his painting. They carefully examined it. They were very careful not to reveal any hints as to what they were thinking as they slowly judged his painting. His emotions were overpowering him as he stood helplessly and watched. His tense expectations were almost uncontrollable as he inwardly expected to receive an award.

The judges sauntered on to the next edgy artists. Maxx stood by his landscape portrait as he impatiently waited for the judges to finish their work. Inwardly, he was sure of a ribbon, maybe even first place. He already knew where he would be placing it in his room.

The judges ambled past the remaining artists one by one. They gave each painting equal time. Finally, they were finished with their evaluations. The esteemed judges walked to their table and began their difficult but very pleasurable decisions as the panicky artists waited in agony.

They entered their votes as to which artists won each of the five ribbons. They split their votes. That gave Mrs. Watersmyth the deciding vote on all five awards. For each ribbon, she had the deciding vote. One by one, she made her decisions.

She was down to the last ribbon. It was a tie between Maxx Zeqster’s acrylic landscape portrait and another students painting from Mr. Wittnex’s class. She would make the final choice.

The other judges were confident that she would choose her student over Mr. Wittnex’s art student. She had made the same choice on the previous tiebreakers that were between her students and theirs.

As she pondered her choice, her mind flashed back to the recent phone conversation that Maxx’s mother, Winox Zeqster, had with her. Mrs. Zeqster stated, “Maxx told me you encouraged him to enter the art contest. He has a tendency toward foolish ideas. He has already chosen his career. Make sure he isn’t distracted.” Because of her husband, Winox was very prominent and powerful in the community. Mrs. Watersmyth didn’t need the trouble that would follow if she ignored Winox Zeqster’s instructions.

She inwardly sorrowed as she stated, “Mr. Wittnex, I’ve decided the fifth place ribbon will be going to your student.

Mr. Wittnex was delighted and shocked. The other judges were irritated. The delighted Mr. Wittnex declared, “Let’s hand out the ribbons!”

Maxx’s heart raced with eager anticipation as he watched the judges, as they begin handing out the awards. He was very confident he would receive a ribbon, maybe even first place. After all, his acrylic landscape portrait was the best painting there.

As he watched, the judges, led by Mrs. Watersmyth, delivered the first place ribbon. It went to one of his fellow art students. He was somewhat disappointed.

He watched as the judges issued the second and third place ribbons. They also went to his fellow classmates. He was becoming inwardly upset.

As he watched, the judges issued the fourth place ribbon to another one of his classmates. He knew that he was a better artist than she was. His heart began to hurt. His eyes were attempting to tear.

His heart was racing with painful anxiety and his chest hurt as he watched with anticipation as Mr. Wittnex proudly issued the final ribbon to one of his students.

The ribbon awarding was over and he had not won a single award. His heart was broken. He was devastated. He felt that his painting was better than many of the winners. He wanted to cry, but he knew he could not. He valiantly fought back his tears. He quickly dismantled his art display as he shielded his teary eyes from his fellow artists. He quickly left the art show with his property as not to show his devastation.

That Same Night; He was having dinner with his parents. He was depressed as he ignored his food. He had no appetite.

His parents knew he just participated in an art contest. His mother noticed his depressed mood. “How was the art show?”

“I didn’t win any awards,” Maxx said depressingly.

Winox responded, “You’ve already decided to go to The University of Kinkorx to be a detective like your father. Not getting a ribbon was the best thing for you.”

Immediately he knew. “You told Mrs. Watersmyth to give the ribbons to other artists. Mom, I’m a better painter than they are. How could you?” He was angry and devastated.

His mother scowled at him. “You’ve already chosen your career. You don’t need any distractions right now.”

His anger and inner pain was raging. “You’ve determined my career choice. Maybe I don’t want to be a detective. What if I want to be an artist or an astronomer?” He was devastated. He quickly left the table and went to his room where he quietly began to cry.

At His Home In Bedsult; Maxx’s mind flashed back to reality. He was having a cup of tea as he remembered the painful art show from his youth. He shook his head at his naiveté when he was a child. “I should have known not to enter that art contest. At that time, I didn’t realize how limited my control was over my life or my future.” He smiled in astonishment at his innocence.

He sighed in an attempted to regain his focus. “Wesloff Qezerr, the manager of The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown never called. Now that I know Jen’s full name and last address, maybe he can give me more information. I’ll visit him again.” He nodded his head.    The excerpt ends.

This segment further defines Maxx’s character. A large part of his compassion as an adult is due to the pain he endured as a child and early adult.  Arguably, the reason he accepts a relationship with Art Nekuma, the Pirtt-Coterie, is due to his inner pain.

May good fortune guide your path,

J.A. Ireland.

GODZILLA – Movie Review

0

Greetings SciFi lovers,

I watched one of my favorite monster movies of all time. I thought you might like to read my review. Enjoy.Godzilla

The movie begins sometime after thirty years of atomic bomb testing has taken place in the south pacific, near French Polynesia. Iguana lizards and their eggs were continually exposed to atomic radiation.

A large underwater object is tracked on sonar and tracking straight for a Japanese Cannery Ship, also near French Polynesia in the south pacific. The ship is attacked and sank by a giant beast.

CHERNOBYL – UKRAINE- Dr. Niko Tapopolis ( Matthew Broderick) is on a three year study of the Chernobyl Earthworm. He works for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and has discovered a seventeen percent increase in the size of the earthworms there due to radiation exposure. He is an unmarried biologists and studies radioactive samples. He is electrocuting the ground to gather night crawlers during a night rainstorm for studying.

Kyle Terrington, of the U.S. State Department, and his team dropped in by chopper and interrupted Dr. Tapopolis’ worm collecting. “You’re being reassigned!” Terrington proclaims in the pouring night rain.

“But my work here isn’t finished!” Nick Tapopolis protests with rain cascading down his face.

Terrington calmly replies while holding his umbrella to shield his head and face from the cold rain, “It is now.”

PAPEETE TAHITI – A very sick old Japanese sailor that was on the cannery ship reported saying, “GOJIRA. GOJIRA. GOJIRA.”

Giant Reptilian Footprint

Giant Reptilian Footprint

Dr. Tapopolis is being flown by small sea plane to Golfo De San Miguel-Panama. To study a giant radioactive reptilian footprint. He was standing inside the massive footprint. “But, there’s no animal in the world that makes foot prints like this, is there?” Tapopolis questioned.

Nick meets Dr. Elsie Chapman, of the National Institute of Paleontology, and his boss. So far, no one has seen the giant beast. They watch a satellite video of the Japanese Cannery Ship being attacked and sank. They only see giant claws. Nick also meets Dr. Craven and is repeatedly called the worm guy; sarcastically.

Later by chopper, they follow the giant reptilian tracks.

GREAT PEDRO BLUFF- JAMAICA – Dr. Nick, Dr. Elsie, and Dr. Craven stand amazed as they gaze at the Japanese Cannery ship. It drifted on shore there. The hull was ripped severely. The locals were sitting on the beach watching, also in amazement. The “Donne-Moi Cinq Pour Cent” mercenary group was hired by La Rochelle Casualty and Property Insurance to guard the ship. Mr. Philippe Roache is the insurance agent. Dr. Tapopolis quietly begins collecting worm specimens from the hull of the ship.

EASTERN SEABOARD – UNITED STATES – “Artie! Artie! What the hell’s wrong? Why are we slowing down?” yells the captain of the small fishing trawler.

“I don’t know!” Artie responds loudly in a panic. “She’s up full throttle! Maybe she’s heavy in the nets!”

Three small fishing trawlers are quickly pulled under by their nets as the crews flee the boats into the turbulent waters.

The Giant Reptilian Beast is only 200 miles off the Eastern American Seaboard.

Dr. Elsie Chapman proclaims, “It’s Theropoda Allosaurus; a reptile that died during the cretaceous period.”

“What about the traces of radiation?” Nick Tapopolis asked skeptically while not agreeing with his boss. “The animal was first sighted in the French Polynesian Pacific, right? That area has been exposed to dozens of nuclear tests over the past 30 years.

Dr. Chapman hurls the sarcasm back at him, “Uh-huh. Hence, the radiation.” The eye roll rocked the plain. Dr. Craven smirked.

Dr. Tapopolis ignores the sarcasm and replies calmly and confidently, “I believe that this is a mutated aberration, a hybrid caused by the fallout on these islands. An incipient creature. The dawn of a new species. The first of it’s kind.”

Godzilla in New York City

Godzilla in New York City

THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS – The creature enters New York City and wreaks havoc. Mayor Ebert has just been re-elected to a 2nd four year term and is giving his thank you speech to his supporters when the creature comes straight for them. The speech is over as everyone flees for their lives.

Mobil Command Center – New Jersey – Sergeant O’Neal reports to the team, “The Mayor has agreed to evacuate NYC and is calling out the National Guard. The giant lizard quickly disappeared into the city.

Audrey Timmonds, news reporter for WIDF TV News, and Dr. Tapopolis’ past college girlfriend of four years begins to have feelings for him as she sees him on TV with the military concerning the giant lizard story.

Agent Philippe Roache, D.G.S.E., of La Rochelle Casualty and Property Insurance, placed a listening device on Mayor Ebert’s shirt collar. Roache’s company insures 15% of the property in NYC.

Since the authorities were unable to locate the lizard they attempted to draw him out with several truckloads of fish in Central Park, much to Mayor Edert’s dismay. It’s 8:55pm in the pouring rain as they wait in hiding, close to the enormous pile of fish. Dr. Tapopolis’ idea; remove the manhole covers to insure the fish smell gets into the sewers.

Godzilla Up Close

Godzilla Up Close

The idea quickly works. They get the first up close and personal look at the giant lizard. Dr. Tapopolis takes pictures. The police begin their attack. They quickly learn how fast the enormous reptile is; and he breathes fire. Their efforts only succeed in more damage to the city. The heat seeking missiles also don’t work; the lizard is colder than the buildings around him. The missiles destroy the Chrysler Building. The massive reptile soon destroyed all four attack choppers.

Audrey runs into Dr. Tapopolis at the drug store. He’s purchasing home pregnancy tests. He’s still angry about the way she left eight years ago without a letter, phone call, nothing. He asks for tests with Gonadotropic Hormones or Clomiphene Citrate. He realizes he’s holding a grudge and quickly changes his heart. He invites her over for tea.

Later, after running his tests, Dr. Tapopolis declares, “This creature’s pregnant. It reproduces Asexually. It came to New York City for a nesting place; of course! I believe this creature has already laid or is about to lay up to twelve eggs, that will hatch quickly. He is gathering fish to feed the young once hatched. We need to find the nest.”

Audrey stole the top secret tape from Dr. Tapopolis’ tent and the media has it. The media calls the creature GODZILLA! Tapopolis is fired by Hicks. He tells Audrey goodbye and takes a taxi to Newark Airport. He soon discovers that Agent Philippe Roache is driving the taxi and is French Secret Service. He says the Americans in NYC stopped looking for the nest.

Dr. Tapopolis and Agent Roache devise a plan to go back into New York City to find Godzilla’s nest. “I always wanted to join the French Foreign Legion,” Tapopolis brags. In this movie, much of the nuclear testing in the pacific was done by the French Government, therefore, they felt responsible and had a vested interest in making sure this creature is stopped.

The military is trying to draw Godzilla into Central Park again with more fish.

Godzilla Battles The Navy

Godzilla Battles The Navy

Dr. Tapopolis, Agent Roache, and their team find Godzilla in the underground sewers of NYC. Godzilla goes into the city and heads for Central Park where the army is waiting with their fish. The attack begins and Godzilla quickly flees to the river where the navy is waiting. The Indiana and Anchorage are closing in. Torpedoes are fired at the giant lizard.

Godzilla lead the torpedoes into the Anchorage. Upon impact, the submarine is destroyed. The Indiana fires at Godzilla as he swims back to Manhattan. DIRECT HIT! They killed Godzilla.

Nick Tapopolis, Agent Roache, and his team enter Madison Square Garden from the sewers. There’s fish everywhere. “Three eggs. I thought there’d be more,” Nick states. Upon further investigation, they find more than twenty eggs. The team began placing explosives on some of the eggs. “Boss,” one of the French men said, “We don’t have nearly enough charges.”

Nick could hear gurgling and other noises coming from inside the eggs. “They’re ready to hatch,” he said with concern. Suddenly the first egg cracked open and a baby Godzilla jumped out. “Correction; they are hatching!” Because they smelled like fish, the group is quickly attacked and must flee The Garden, for their lives.

Dr. Elsie Chapman convinces the Colonel to look for the nest, against Mayor Ebert’s wishes.

Agent Roache orders, “Contact the military. Get them to send a bomber to blow up this building. 5557600 Code Dragon Fly. That should get you through. Nick go get help. We’ll hold the reptiles off.

They have an idea. They Begin A Live Broadcast From Inside Madison Square Garden: Audrey reports, “Dr. Niko Tapopolis has discovered the Beast’s lair.” Nick explains, “We’ve discovered over 200 eggs. They have hatched and are over nine feet tall and have begun feeding. These 200 could easily become 40,000 within this year. This could become the dominate species of this planet. The military must destroy this building immediately before these creatures can escape.” “I’m Audrey Timmonds reporting live on WIDF News from inside Madison Square Gardens.”

The order was given by the military Colonel, “I want you to blow up Madison Square Garden.”

Nick and team learned their broadcast was received by everyone and they had less than six minutes to leave the building before the bombers arrived. Agent Roache distracts the lizards while they make their getaway through the main entrance; past dozens of hungry Godzillas. As the F18 bombers make their approach.

The Crater where Madison Square Garden was and Godzilla

The Crater where Madison Square Garden was and Godzilla

The Maverick missiles are fired. The Garden is destroyed. Nick and Audrey kiss.

GODZILLA’S BACK! RUN!

The F18 bombers are ordered to turn around. Nick and friends are hiding in the Park Avenue Tunnel as Godzilla desperately tries to get to them. They lead the massive lizard to the Brooklyn Bridge. The F18’s fly to the bridge.

Godzilla on the Brooklyn Bridge

Godzilla on the Brooklyn Bridge

Godzilla gets tangled in the suspension cables on the bridge as the F18’s approach. “Stallion 1-5, Tally One on the Bridge.”

The order is given to fire at will. Godzilla took multiple direct missile hits from the F18 fighters. Quickly Godzilla falls and dies.

WIDF News Live Headlines “GODZILLA DEFEATED!”

Mayer Ebert says, “The Mayor who Destroyed Godzilla.”

One egg hatched late and lived.

The End

Sesla…The Enchanted Planet in the Whirlpool Galaxy

0

Greetings from Sesla,

My name is J.A. Ireland. I am a Seslean of the Miflixx-Coterie clan. I live in beautiful downtown Kinkorx with my family. I am a professional writer. My office is on the 12th floor of the beautiful Grexenn Building, also in downtown Kinkorx. From my large, windowed, high-rise office, I enjoy a spectacular view of the morning sunrise over the multicolored desert. The view from my office desk, with my morning tea, is breathtaking. My office is near The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown. I can see the spectacular structure from my window. This is the home of the Kinkorx Horned Hares, our professional mesnuk team.

Kinkorx is a bustling and beautiful, magical desert city. She is the delight of Xcuymir Territory. Xcuymir Territory is one of the mysterious and breathtaking territories of the desert region on Sesla.

Kinkorx Desert Flowers

               Kinkorx Desert Flowers

I would like to tell you about the mystical planet; Sesla. I would also like to tell you about her beloved coteries. I will begin by sharing a secret with you. Before time was measured, when the Croster Slux Solar System formed, the Whirlpool Galaxy gave the sun the task of naming the planets. The fifth planet in the solar system balked at this absurd idea. She wanted to choose her own name. The sun, of course, did not agree. The very bold fifth planet stood her ground. Eventually, the sun conceded and gave the planet her wish. She chose the name Sesla, which means “Enchanted Planet” in the Whirlpool Galaxy. It’s a charming name, don’t you think?

Sesla is a beautiful, small planet that is part of the Croster Slux Solar System. She is the fifth planet from her sun of twelve undersized planets. These planets all know each other very well, and are close friends. Sesla’s solar system, the Croster Slux Solar System, exists within the Whirlpool Galaxy.

Whirlpool Galaxy

                     Whirlpool Galaxy

The Whirlpool Galaxy, where the Croster Slux Solar System spirals inside and Sesla spirals within it is a bright galaxy. She is much brighter than her friend the Milky Way. The Whirlpool Galaxy is 23.5 million light years away from its neighbor and close friend, the Milky Way. These two galaxies have always had a bond. They are very good friends. The Whirlpool Galaxy is a very friendly galaxy, and it has many other friends in the vast universe as well.

Her other planetary friends in the Croster Slux Solar System all support life. However, their planetary life is much different from the life on Sesla. Sesla’s perfect climate and terrain allows its remarkable citizens to evolve, live, and thrive.

Due to Sesla’s beloved inhabitants, her magical animals and plants, and her diverse regions, she appears to be a happy planet that is teaming with life and personality. On this beautiful and dreamlike planet, the coteries have evolved to be the dominate species because of their adaptability to the hot, dry climate of the deserts, as well as the cooler, damp, rainier climate of the wet lands.

Most of the spectacular residents of this beautiful planet would all agree that Sesla is a mystical planet. Sesla seems to have a character of her own.

Sesla is proud of her beloved coteries, her desert terrain, her seacoast, her seas, and her wet lands. Each spectacular feature on this magnificently beautiful planet has its own exceptional features and unique splendor. She is delighted by and cares immensely for her beloved inhabitants. Her many clans of citizens refer to themselves as coteries. Her beloved coteries form the attractive population of this picturesque planet.

All coteries have attractive leathery skin. Their skin has an alluring appeal. Their pleasing complexion, along with their thick, wavy, flowing hair, adds to their attractive nature.

Sesleans have two arms and hands with five fingers. They have two legs with fin like feet. They have a miniscule dorsal fin that runs down the center of their back. The fin splits at their lumbar, and continues down the back of both of their legs. It is more visible on some coteries and less on others.

They have a sharp row of bone in the entrance to their mouths. This serves them well for biting and tearing of their food, which they then swallow.

Their young hatch from eggs.

The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown in Kinkorx

The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown in Kinkorx

The many coteries of Sesla are, by their very nature, a very athletic race. For this reason, their global sport, mesnuk, is extremely popular. Actually, mesnuk is the only sport on Sesla. There are numerous professional mesnuk teams and stadiums positioned throughout our planet. Almost every school and town has its own mesnuk team and field.

Mesnuk is a very simple, fast-paced team sport that young coteries learn and play during childhood. Competitions begin during youth and go to the professional level. Mesnuk is simple with full contact. There are two separate seasons in the sport of mesnuk. The first is “The Set of Games,” followed by “It’s the Rallies.” The winner of “It’s the Rallies” is the Sesla Mesnuk Champion. In the sport of mesnuk, there have never been pads allowed, and there never will be. The sport is simple and brutal.

Sesla’s very proud and spectacular citizens have evolved to permit walking upright and the wearing of very fashionable clothing. They are educated at many different universities, some more prestigious than others. Some become judges and law enforcement personnel, while others choose to be astronomers, aviators, doctors, and scientists, just to name a few. Others prefer different forms of employment that allow for lesser levels of education. There is no end to the different professions on Sesla.

The clans of Sesla group into different coteries. In the desert territories, the residents are the Razion-Coterie, KyMox-Coterie, Miflixx-Coterie, and the Pirtt-Coterie. The Razions are the highest status and the tallest, while the Pirtts are the lowest status and the shortest. The others fall in between. Joyously for the Razions, they are the tallest coteries on Sesla. Unfortunately, for the Pirtts, they are the lowest, in both status and height of the coteries on Sesla.

In the desert territories, the Joxel is the financial currency.

Sesla’s desert terrain has its own unique beauty. The natural beauty of this area is picturesque. The desert offers unlimited ancient and unusual colored stone formations, as well as a multitude of natural desert flowers that add to the scenic beauty. The multicolored sand adds to the picturesque splendor of the vast, ancient, unchanging desert.

Sunset on Sesla Desert

One Spectacular Sunset on Sesla in the Desert

Her desert sunsets are also quite spectacular. The sky seems to light up with majestic colors as her sun sets. Due to the picturesque desert views, many artists through the centuries have taken great pleasure in painting her alluring desert landscape. The picturesque views of this magical and mystical desert are infinite.

The desert terrain also offers hills and valleys, beautifully breathtaking canyons, along with other rolling picturesque desert topography. The desert terrain is teaming with an abundance of enchanted plants and animals. Many of the captivating and mystical desert plants have beautiful, fragrant flowers.

Many of Sesla’s beloved coteries live in the desert climate. They are more comfortable in the very dry, desert climates. These inhabitants prefer living in the beautiful, scenic, desert topography with all of its spectacular colors. The alluring mystery of the ancient stone formations, along with different colored desert sand, is pleasing to them. These coteries seem to enjoy the many varieties of aromatic, flowering plant life in the desert. They seem to appreciate the absence of rain that characterizes the very hot and dry desert terrain on Sesla.

The buildings in the desert are not as impressive as the wet land buildings, but they are still very beautiful. Many desert structures are older stone and bricks structures. Many of the desert residents use adobe bricks with stucco to build their homes and structures.

The residents with more Joxels have also constructed lavish stone fronts and spectacular stone columns on their buildings.

The two largest and most majestic desert cities are Kinkorx and Wyluxx City. They are both very vibrant desert cities that offer much splendor and lifestyle opportunities for their coteries. The desert coteries that built these cities have also used advanced architecture in their designs. They built these weather resistant structures using ancient desert stones as well as adobe bricks and stucco fillers. The magnificently crafted stone columns that grace the front of many businesses in the desert cities are stunning to view. The skill that is required to create these artistic column fronts and other stonework is considerable.

The most advanced and astonishing structure in Kinkorx is The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown. With its state of the art enclosed design, it is the pride of Kinkorx. The Kinkorx Horned Hares have the pleasure of calling this incredibly designed and built mesnuk stadium their home.

Wyluxx City enjoys its own mesnuk stadium. The exciting Wyluxx City Stadium is a tribute to the ingenuity of the Wyluxx City engineers and builders. The Wyluxx City Generals enjoy calling this mesnuk stadium their home.

The desert coteries have also built many other beautiful and extraordinary homes and businesses in several other rural cities in the desert territories.

The care that these coteries take in their landscape work is equally inspiring. The many homes and businesses in this climate reflect this ingenuity.

                    Mystical Sesla Sea

The many roadside parks in the desert territories also display these talents. When driving along the many well-maintained desert roads, there are numerous lavishly designed pullovers. They are for resting, as well as enjoyable viewing and painting.

In the seaport territory, the residents are the Iinzler-Coteries. The Iinzlers are the native coteries of the seaport. They are the merchants and boat owners, as well as landowners. The Iinzlers mostly own and operate their charming little fishing and resort town. There are exceptions to that rule, but they are few. The Iinzlers are of reasonable status due to their business skills and average height. They tend to be very intolerant with their non-native renters and visitors. They are an impatient and unforgiving group of coteries.

In the seaport territory, both the Joxel and the Mylux are accepted currencies.

Sesla’s seacoast features a popular, quaint, fishing village named Tos-Xiron. With her beaches, waterways, and beautiful parks, it is a remarkable sight. Many of Sesla’s beloved coteries have made this seaport their home.

Tos-Xiron is the only town on Sesla’s sea and the only seaport. Each day, many of her beloved coteries make their living fishing Sesla’s magical and mysterious waters from this charming seaport.

The coteries of Tos-Xiron enjoy mesnuk at their own stadium. Jyitsen Stadium is the home of the Tos-Xiron Doxers. The Mighty Doxers have yet to win a Sesla Mesnuk Championship. Actually, they never seem to go very far in “It’s the Rallies.”

Builders constructed Tos-Xiron partly on both Sesla’s land and sea. This charming fishing village is nestled south of both the wet land territories and the desert territories. It lies on the Sesla Sea between the two contrasting areas of this inspiring and intriguing planet.

Due to Tos-Xiron’s midpoint location, it not only draws its own coteries, the Iinzlers, but others Sesleans as well. Tos-Xiron’s buildings and structures reflect the mixed cultures of the Iinzlers, as well as all of Sesla’s other coteries.

Builders constructed many of her charming homes and businesses using adobe bricks and finished with a stucco exterior, other structures have stone fronts. These buildings seem to exist on the beautiful, multi-colored sandy terrain.

There are also numerous homes and businesses that are constructed directly on the Sesla Sea. These buildings are brilliantly designed and built in a variety of ways to accommodate their watery foundations. Many of these homes float on floating supports, while others are constructed on stilts.

There is also a vast amount of boardwalks in Tos-Xiron. The numerous walkways accommodate the local residents, as well as the many tourists that wish to enjoy a day on the waterfront.

There is a main harbor with numerous boats docked seemingly everywhere. Residents also own many types of watercraft on other areas of Sesla’s seas, waterfronts, lakes, and streams.

One Variety of  the Deadly Sea Doxer

Sesla’s seas are not only beautiful and mystical they are teaming with marine life. Her magical seas have a variety of native fish as well as its very own predator. The sea doxer is the unchallenged, dominating predator species that lives and thrives in Sesla’s vast oceans. The doxer has existed since the beginning of Sesla herself.

The doxer is a fanged, sea creature that lays eggs to reproduce. It has two pectoral fins for steering, and a tail fin for forward motion. Many species also have a large webbed dorsal fin that begins at the doxer’s forehead just above its two eyes, and runs along its back, all the way to its tail fin and is somewhat elongated. The dorsal fin is sharp and ridged. There are several varieties of doxers living in the Sesla seas.

The doxer has a sharp row of bone in the entrance of its powerful mouth for cutting and tearing of its food, which it swallows; some species have fangs.

The doxer is equipped with two venomous weapons that quickly subdue its attacker or prey. The first is its saliva. The doxer’s salivary glands secrete a solution consisting of enzymes, mucus, protein, water, and poison when biting. The second venomous weapon is the ridged, very sharp, dorsal fin. The doxer’s dorsal fin is hollow, and serves as a series of hypodermic needles to deliver the same type of poison as found in its saliva to fight off its attacker. Once the attacker or prey is bitten, pricked, or scratched, the poison’s effects quickly result.

Reactions to the doxer’s venom may vary. If a foolish or unfortunate Seslean, or sea creature, is poisoned, sometimes the poisoning only results in a simple rash or fever, for the lucky ones. For the numerous Sesleans and sea creatures that have engaged the doxer, or have been attacked by the doxer, whether accidentally, foolishly, or as prey, the resulting illness is doxer fever.

Doxer fever is widespread throughout Sesla. It sometimes causes a paralysis, but usually causes a psychosis that includes prolonged bewilderment, mania with delusions, hallucinations, incoherence, and distorted perceptions of reality. The worst cases of doxer fever exhibit these mental illnesses, as well sometimes very alarming, frightening, and horrifying mutations. There are several mental hospitals and asylums on Sesla that attempt to treat and accommodate the worst cases of doxer fever. The prisons on Sesla are also plagued with criminals that are nothing more than doxer fever victims that turned to crime.

In the wet lands, the residents are the Qirdotz-Coterie and the Zepler-Coterie. The Qirdotzs are the more prominent and the best-educated coteries on Sesla. They are also the best athletics. With all of this going for them, over time they have adopted a very arrogant, self-righteous, and even snobby attitude. Their sharp, condescending manner makes them very difficult to associate with in social and work environments. The Zepler are the taller of the two coteries. They enjoy their own prominence as well. They are simply not equal to their wet lands neighbors, the Qirdotzs.

In the wet lands territories, the Mylux is the financial currency. Mylux are worth more than Joxels by 15 percent.

Sesla’s wet lands consist of picturesque hills and valleys, spectacular waterfalls, rolling countryside, abundant woodlands, farmlands, marshes, bogs, swamps, and waterways. The wet lands are teaming with enchanted plants and animals.

Sesla provides a considerable amount of rainfall for the dreamlike plants and animals, as well as coteries in the wet lands.

Many of Sesla’s beloved coteries are in the wet lands. They prefer the very marshy, boggy, waterways of the wet lands. In addition, many coteries enjoy the fertile farmlands there as well. They seem to prefer the cooler, damper, rainier weather in this area. They also seem to appreciate the abundant aquatic plant life and creatures that the wet lands offer.

The Qirdotz-Coteries thrive in the wet lands, and are a very brilliant and influential clan. They are the best and brightest, and their wet lands architecture reflects it. They are the dominant species.

The Zepler-Coteries also reside in the wet lands. They are less intelligent and educated than their Qirdotzs neighbors. However, they are also part of Sesla’s upper class.

Sesla’s wet lands residents are better educated and have more prestigious occupations than the desert and seas dwellers. The area highlights these advantages.

The wet lands also feature beautifully constructed cities. The Qirdotzs largely created these works of art.

The two most beautifully impressive and best-loved cities in the wet lands are Guytic City and Kvyutt. These two magnificent cities are the pride of the wet lands. Their marvelously designed buildings are simply brilliant. The creative architectural design that the Qirdotzs used to build the magnificent buildings in these two cities is incredible.

Guytic City also boasts its own very impressively designed and constructed mesnuk stadium. Qashlet Stadium is the home of the Guytic City Fighting Tobacco Farmers. Many Sesleans refer to them as simply the Tobaccos. The Tobaccos have won the Sesla Mesnuk Championship many times.

Kvyutt contains its own professional mesnuk stadium. The Kvyutt Travelers call the Kvyutt Stadium their home. The travelers do not enjoy the same success as the Sesla Champion Tobaccos or their extravagant home stadium.

The wet lands have an abundance of magnificent and creative buildings and roads. There seems to be no end to the wet lander’s design ideas in these towns and cities. The buildings and roads accommodate their unique water climate. Many of them float on the water or are on stilts above water.

There are also many other impressive cities and towns in the wet lands regions that reflect the many influences of the Qirdotz-Coterie. The other unique towns have their own special structures depending on how much water there is in their community.

There seems to be no limit to what the clever and smart Sesleans of the wet lands can conceive and build.

Sesla’s roads throughout the territories are also an engineering marvel. The inhabitants of Sesla are very good at building and maintaining splendid thoroughfares. The different territories on this friendly planet enjoy a series of well-constructed, well-maintained motorways. The highways are not excessive. They are adequate for their needs. Due to the superb road system, the most popular way for Sesleans to travel from city to city is by vehicle. Vehicles are very popular on Sesla, and their diversity is numerous.

Sesla also features a daily aircraft transport system that connects the natives of this beautiful intriguing planet together. Each day, numerous cargo planes fly back and forth from city to city, carrying cargo items. The trade on Sesla is extensive. The cargo planes also carry a limited number of passengers as they commute.

Sesla’s territories have their own government, as well as their own laws. Each territory has their elected officials, as well as their own court system, which enforces their laws. Sometimes these different regional laws can cause controversy and arguments between the territories.

Sesleans engage in many different types of activities. In fact, the residents of Sesla do just about anything that you can think of. They even break the territory laws.

When the local law enforcement authorities are unable to effectively deal with the local crime and criminals, the coteries of Sesla call their own private detectives.

After introducing you to Sesla; our beloved and enchanted planet, this article would not be complete with mentioning my friend and from my POV the best detective on Sesla. I’m referring to Maxx Zeqster, of course. He’s my life long friend and the protagonists of my series; Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases. As I write more stories about Sesla, I’ll tell you more about him. Thanks for reading. Ja.
