Macedon's Taberna, Redux

Macedon was for several years a voice of reason,  a sort of village elder for the alt.startrek.creative community.   And from the time I first corresponded with him--IIRC,  to berate him for his French :)  --he has been variously my lecturer,  my example,  my co-conspiritor and my friend.   He is now retired from fan fiction but has given me permission to post his stories and essays here.

STORIES:

Wisdom and Beautya beautifully understated Vulcan love story,  is my favorite (and IMNSHO the best) of the works Macedon posted to a.s.c.

Talking Stick/Circle A remarkable "braided novel" of 8 stories and novellas which Macedon wrote in tandem with the equally remarkable Peg Robinson.   Too sprawling (in the grand sense) in scale and reach to reduce to a mere synopsis;  let us just say that this is Voyager unfettered and red in tooth and claw,  such as Paramount with its nice tidy pander-to-the-demographics mentality could only dream of producing.

Jeu-parti is composed of a trio of stories featuring Jake Sisko:
OrfeoWhen Bajor hosts an interstellar music festival,  to which a very unusual star singer is invited,  Jake must face questions about friendship,  manhood and culture,  as well as freedoms of belief.
Eye of the Storm
This story is a sequel to the DS9 episode,  "Nor the Battle to the Strong,"  as well as to "Orfeo."   It is rated [R] for some sexual material.   Persons under 18,  or those who have trouble with gay fiction,  should read no further.   {Diavolessa's note:  While "Eye of the Storm" features an emotional and physical relationship between two people who both happen to be male,  I wouldn't necessarily categorize it as "gay" fiction.   Semantics,  semantics,  semantics...}
Anslem
The final story in the DS9 novel,  JEU-PARTI,  sequel to "Orfeo" and "Eye of the Storm."   Eleven years after his abrupt,  late-night departure,  Salene reappears in Jake's life.   He finds a twenty-nine-year-old Jake whose writing career is beginning to blossom even while his private life is falling apart.
Out of the PastVoyager rescues a shuttle from an unstable wormhole,  only to discover it carries a surprising guest--an old flame of Janeway's.
T'Kuht RisingA sequel of sorts to "Out of the Past."   As his daughter celebrates her second birthday,  Sokar is haunted by doubts and demons from his own childhood.   Does he begin instructing her in Vulcan emotional control,  or does he grant her the freedom he so coveted as a child himself?
