Thaumaturgy by Tesseract Universe

Thaumaturgy by Tesseract Universe
Tales of Science and Sorcery


This universe's comonality is that thaumaturgy (miracle working and magick) interacts with a tessaract (a means of crossing space and time) and other technological means. Sometimes 'Thaumaturgy by Tesseract' means miracle working accomplished through the use of crossing space and time and technology. At other times it is miracle working being accomplished along side of technological feats. Since space and time crossing is integral to some of the stories in this universe, Arthur C Clark's observation that sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic is very applicable as well. Welcome to my universe where science and sorcery co-exist and this is revealed to the people in the story through a new interaction which had been previously kept secret from them.

Coeds 5; New Opportunities

The latest adventure of Jirra Reid and her friends.



This story was started with the assistance of Robert Arnold. He was more than just editor; he gave me input on the characters and plot lines. He also honored me by allowing the use of his wonderful character Jen Stevens. Due to Bob’s passing, we were unable to complete the story together. To honor Bob’s memory I decided to finish the story based on the outlines we discussed. He was a great friend and mentor and I will miss him. This story is dedicated to his memory. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.

Synopsis: Swan Song seems to be going forward using Ripley’s revised plan. Chuck is having second thoughts about his wife, and running into problems on his own, but his actions have thus far prevented Hiromi’s letter of apology and explanation from reaching him. In the meantime, Gabrielle has volunteered to go through the Double Helix process and take Chuck’s place as Hiromi’s husband, with the general consensus being that she would be more reliable than Chuck if the situation deteriorated, but some provision would have to be made for outside support as well.
