Episode 28: Ryan W. Mueller

 

Today I’m reading from an epic fantasy novel, Empire of Chains, by fellow indie author Ryan W. Mueller! Like myself, Ryan took the publishing plunge this year, 2017. Here’s a link to the KBoards thread I mention in the show, wherein the Class of 2017 connects.

You can find Ryan here at his own website, and also here at his Amazon author page. Look for Book 2 in the World in Chains series next month (October 2017), and another series from him likely in December!

“Beloved be Your Name”

Now, when my eyes grow full of my death,
I smile, if a little sadly, knowing that you,
My son, will hold these words within
Yourself long after I have fled. My son,

Who is on earth, beloved be your name.
Take love to every face, to every burning
Hate and every dull flame of apathy; take
Passion and charity and play to the darkest

Wells of our eyes, the coldest songs of our
Appetites. Break walls with the spirit of
Your voice. Shine light into the ditches and
The lee of every stone, find caterpillars with

The fingers of your mind, coax them into
Divine beings, watch in wonder as they fly.
And lead our suffering to redemption, as it
Is in Heaven, as it is in the quiet of the mind.
