Fascinating courtly intrigue and bloody power games set on a generation ship full of secrets―Medusa Uploaded is an imaginative, intense mystery about family dramas and ancient technologies whose influence reverberates across the stars.

Michael's Chronicle: Passing Clouds


Michael Thiele is a woodsmith who makes musical instruments and playable furniture. He spends most of his life either in the shop or out on the road buying wood and selling his work at craft shows. In recent years, his travels have begun to inspire his own writing, so he sends me his thoughts.

Passing Clouds

God I’ve seen some bad times
Good ones too
Moving parts, this life
Passing clouds

No heads no tails
No tortoise no hare
What matters most?
The destination or the journey?

I care not
How quickly it all moves
But please don’t bore me
With same old same old

I’m impatient
Photos are fine
But given the choice
I’ll take the movie

I can’t be here
Without there
I can’t be now
Without then

I’m Ok
With rain on my parade
Just give me
My passing clouds
