I'm honoured to announce Rave was awarded the B.R.A.G. Medallion!
It's a award I've scoped out for a long time and finally decided to submit a book to the group. Very pleased to be part of the honorees.

New Readers Favorite review for Into the Macrocosm!
“With an engaging narrative and evocative artwork, Konn Lavery's Into the Macrocosm is an entertaining embrace of fantastical oddities and life beyond.”
“The story continues in "Scrappers" … a sci-fi delight that deserves to be a full novel.” - not the first time that comment has been made... maybe I should look into that?
FULL REVIEW ★★★★★
A paranormal event or just a trick of the mind? A teen is urged by a talking goat to make a move on his crush while high on weed in "Goat Wisdom". In "Inspirer", a man is tricked by his own delusional mind and makes an irreversible decision. Sci-fi fans will enjoy "Harvesters", set in a post-apocalyptic Earth where people are treated like cattle by superior beings. The story continues in "Scrappers", as two people tasked with finding metal junk for the surviving human base underground stumble upon a crashed Harvester and a dangerous beast. It is a sci-fi delight that deserves to be a full novel. Stories such as a demonic teddy bear in "Mr. Super" and man-eating large birds in "Otherkin" will entertain horror lovers, while "Option Three" is an introspective piece for everyone. As compelling as these stories are, the focus will always return to the Nameless One, Malpherities, and their hunt for an answer. With an engaging narrative and evocative artwork, Konn Lavery's Into the Macrocosm is an entertaining embrace of fantastical oddities and life beyond.

"Wow! That is the first thought that came to mind after I finished reading “Rave.” I found myself holding my breath through much of this fast-paced story. The author Konn Lavery did a fantastic job of creating a novel that is full of complicated characters affected by a tragedy from the past."
July's Patreon short story is here! Transhumanism is a standalone sequel to the short story Taylorism, exploring the futuristic scifi Scrappers/Harvesters storyline.
