About the author:
From a young age Adam Train possessed an innate desire to create worlds and characters, first with pencil and crayon, and later with the written word.
Having grown up during the Lucas/Spielberg onslaught of the 80s and 90s, and discovering pulp storyteller greats like Robert E. Howard and HP. Lovecraft, it wasn't long before Adam's desire to create had reached fever pitch.
The result was Transcendent Tales.
Fuelled by an insatiable, and often annoying, fascination with history, a love of travel and a passion for cinema and creative story telling, Adam is always working on a new story. Conceiving and writing all tales, he self publishes his works from his home in Adelaide, South Australia.

Transcendent Tales - Volume One

A collection of six science fiction and fantasy tales by Adam Train. Whether it's aliens or Atlanteans, samurai or cyborgs, Transcendent Tales has got you covered.

Tales include:

The Legend of Sköll - In an ancient epoch when steel and brawn ruled the lands, Sköll, the Northern Wolf, forged a legend that would last the ages. In this origin tale, Sköll's savage beginnings are explained, along with the key events that shaped the brute's life.

A New End - With the discovery of a break through gene therapy that stops the aging process and eliminates death by disease and illness, the final remnant of mortal humanity face their end. A journalist conducts a revealing and poignant interview with the last mortal man

Saisho No Kamikaze - In the summer of 1281, the colossal Mongol war machine set its sights on the islands of Japan. Dispatching a monstrous fleet, their black sails loom on the horizon. Kaito, a young samurai commander, is charged to defend the sovereignty of his nation.

The Third Realm - In the not too distant future, a breakthrough designer drug, used in conjunction with readily available computer hardware, allows the human mind to enter an alternate dimension. With world governments quickly moving to ban public access, an agency is established to police those who seek to illegally enter the realm.

Mystery of Grey Rock Canyon - Nestled at the heart of a dune sea, a winding canyon harbours the preserved ruins of an ancient civilisation. Seeking clues to explain the demise of this long forgotten empire, a young adventurer makes the perilous journey to the canyon's depths.

High-Side - The calendar year was 2096, sixty years since the great purge and exodus of civilisation, and the glistening climb of Metro's towers marked her as the last great city of earth. In the sprawling slums of the city, a smuggler will take a job that breaches the social divide and questions what it is to be human.
