Set in the town of Yardrof, the story takes the reader to the future along with some visits to the past, but then suddenly breaks away from those now familiar bonds by his captivation to someplace so very far away, and yet--so near as to then be brought back again, within the reader experience to join the partaken in some new Earthly insights imagined by the author. Yardrof is the author's first novel.


   Randall Kazamp is a boy who, despite their set limitations, always plays by or within the rules--even though he oddly winds up as the occurrence that has the rules to be broken by the establishment of an on-course heading that's all the way back to an open door that somehow has wound up with a big new discovery inside. But to no one's big surprise it is very old.  And Randall is led away to unwind alone, but he oddly discovers his mind that's on course to being a man's.

    But still joined, when it comes right down to it, the known universe is equally as big or mysterious or capable as any act occurring in it, as they go clasp in clasp would likely be the guess or so it would seem--while on their way.  But Randall Kazamp, at his age in this story hasn't even completely developed a guess--as he is still a boy. Randall, though, is different than any other boy; but, yet, he is quite the same--and just like the Universe, they specifically are all growing-up, which is also the theme of the book Yardrof--with its rounded 51,000 words.

   The science fiction story takes place in the town of Yardrof, within an environment setting of the first quarter of the twenty-second century.

   From the Kazamp backyard, where Randall Kazamp helps his father, Peter Kazamp--a scientist, tend his goldenrain trees, to Randall's help as 'the breaking molds' by his entrance into a rather hushed radar telescope site located in his hometown, and then off in scope to a parallel world that Randall helps bring into focus in one apparent mode that results with an official glimpse--might all be described as strange in this story.  But following his helpful acts, Randall strangely, though naturally his best, helpfully helps himself to his very own.

   So, do grab hold, while reading Yardrof, in readiness for a text-tract roller coaster ride given a chain of events lain both before and after some apparent given facts.  Still, conclusively though, amounts to nothing more than growing-up. Yet, in pertinence to lively, commonly extraordinarily does so--in one way or another anyhow.  Just the same, in the story Yardrof, Randall Kazamp is ordinary with respect to growing up, as he is a boy; but he makes an Earthly-unearthly discovery which leads to his further development in being just one among other events visited in the story by the reader.  In the book Yardrof, the stage and the scenario have been setup and arranged, it's up to the reader from that point onward.  It's science fiction, but at least something's left.

YARDROF [ Excerpt ] - Chapter 2

   That's what Randall let pass as his thoughts on his thirteenth birthday, a virtual shelf of memories containing an accessible reminder of his twelfth birthday, and any puppetry held by him within the frame was his only entertainment. Well, Randall's thirteenth birthday was yesterday, and that's where he has to leave it. 

Today is another day; it is still early, and Randall is headed in the direction of downstairs to get some breakfast before his father takes him out shopping. But first he wants to check in on his father to see if he's up and about yet. After Randall had checked throughout the house in unsuccessfully locating Mr. Kazamp, he eventually finds him out in the backyard near some of his goldenrain trees, as he catches glimpses of Mr. Kazamp out of the side-door of the kitchen while getting himself some breakfast. 

Mr. Kazamp had promised to take Randall shopping today, since he didn't get him anything for his thirteenth birthday yesterday. With the weekend arriving the day after Randall's birthday, Mr. Kazamp had decided this year to just wait with the birthday present gift--and take Randall shopping on this Saturday instead. Randall being the mature lad that he is, wouldn't have minded at all if his father had just skipped all of the birthday with gift hoopla.

Peter Kazamp has been in the habit of babying Randall just a bit, and that's mostly because of a mother who is missing in Randall's life. Mr. Kazamp kind of over does it in that aspect of parenting though, in an attempt to try not to leave anything avoidably out that would deny Randall a full life.


   Gion B. Tahunka is a poet and writer who is infatuated with the arts, life with art, and the art that continuously joins life through and by way of the creatures that produce it, enhance it--if it be so, or just keep it going.  The author has a certificate of preliminary education along with his interest in computers and science related research as well.

   The author has been storytelling since he was a child some decades ago.  But when he did read the accessible author titles at the public library, as during those early years of his and while he was a child, the mystery-titles were always his favorite.  Though, he would have to discretely move closer but not completely over into the adult section to satisfy that urge.  As even back then--decades ago, adult books could not be checked out by children.  But he did manage to find some mystery novels, there at the public library, that were close, but not quite adult--and as those which could be checked out by anyone his age as well.  Ever forward though, the librarian was always watching, and he always wanted to avoid having to make acknowledgment of that supervision, in answering that he wasn't taking those steps of his clear over into the adult section.  As that's why he was always so discreet on his paths toward no clarifications having to be made--but as his silent reward instead.  Though space, and those regularly scheduled frontiers, had regularly come to shed tears by him.  But the author hasn't been situated to afford any entertainment such as that, any given moment, in recent times.  Because the author now has a space oriented science fiction book of his own to realistically cry about, and independently at that.  Now that's science fiction.

   Author written is Yardrof, and some parts of it might be surmised as being in a writing style that perhaps was rediscovered after being towed out from under an old forgotten world, but then promoted out-front of a narrator that braves in the likeness of an unlikely humorous guide while guiding the reader through this rather dark tale--and while being a caretaker of a lantern, and to extensions at times during its poetic sway that also had flickered while being the negotiator on read paths.  Yardrof is a bit dark in nature, and even spiritual in the sense of right and wrong--though self-direction was not written all the way down to null in the outcome text.
