About RAZE and “mature” material
RAZE is an ongoing, weekly epic fantasy web serial, a serious, character driven portrait of the greatest warrior the world has ever known, told from his holding cell before his execution at the hands of the woman he loves; a cell he chose; a cell in which he waits. To find out why, you have to get to know RAZE.
RAZE is also fairly dark thus far, and explores some mature themes that may prove upsetting to some. I’m of the opinion that fiction is the correct place to explore and understand things that frighten us, disturb us, or even things that have traumatized us. I think it’s the right place, both for myself and for many readers. It’s not everyone’s thing and readers looking for lighter entertainment may not be interested in this story. Of course I want RAZE to be entertaining, but it’s also an outlet for my own thoughts, concerns, fears, and wounds. All that said, and with my intentions being what they are, I also know that there’s room for improvement and better understanding in my own work. I hope anyone who reads and has thoughts about the work will let me hear those thoughts.
I’m pleased to announce the beginning of a new project. RAZE is a fantasy fiction web serial I will be writing for free on my website, dthoursonpalmer.com, and updating weekly. It is the story of RAZE, the self-proclaimed world’s greatest warrior. Born Heshim, the son of poor grain and poppy farmers, Raze is taken from his home and begins the journey of a lifetime, frought with violence and tragedy, but also love and a search for wisdom and purpose.
In a prison cell, held by the enemies who first set him on his journey, facing execution at the hands of the woman he loves, Raze tells of his life, his travels, the wisdom he gained, and how he came to be known as the one whose name means “to destroy completely.”
My name is Raze, but my name as it was given by my mother and father was Heshim il-Naban, and I have been called by many others in many lands. Raze is the name I have chosen for myself, after some thought and time, and it is the name by which I’ve come to be known. It is true. It is destruction, to completeness. It is unmaking.
I am greatest warrior the world has ever known.
