  About Hammer of Gath: A Tale of Rehavan In a time millennia before the Golden Iris reigned supreme, before Salinor and the race of men ever dreamed of nationhood, the elven empire of Elisidor stands as Rehavan’s greatest power. To their east lies the ocean, to their west lies Gath, the sprawling democracy of the minotaurs, their only option for expansion. As both nations grow and swell, one lusting for mineral wealth, the other for fertile land, differences in belief and custom become divisive. Factions rise desirous of conquest. A chance misfortune sparks bloodshed, and as this...

Cold Case Story is based on a series of blog posts about a 1973
murder in which Stephanie Kane played an unwitting part. More
than a witness but less than an active participant, she was a bit
actor whose role in the crime shaped her life. For the next thirty
years, she hid, distorted or denied the carnage in that suburban
garage. In 2001, she tried to exorcise it by fictionalizing it in a
mystery novel called Quiet Time.
But a bludgeoning for which nobody paid the price demands
answers, and cold cases exert a unique hydraulic force. Instead
of laying the murder to rest, Quiet Time brought that cold case
roaring back to life. And the killer wasn’t the only one to be
brought to account.

A cold case is the tale of a murder told not just once, but twice. A story is shaped by characters, setting and
plot. It changes with each telling but always has a beginning, middle and end. Cold Case Story tries to make
sense of a brutal murder, a cold case and their consequences by viewing them through the lens of storytelling.

In the end, all are punish’d—even the guilty.
