Author has written 9 stories for Avatar, and Word for World Is Forest.

I am not the owner of the persons of the stories I publish met with in the movie and I never will be, I am not making any money whatsoever from the little stories I present and I will never expect to do it either. If anyone feel like building further stories on persons, localities and events here created then they can feel free to do it – provided only that they try to stay in the given pre-histories, given personalities etc., and keep from turning their stories into adult stories. R&R are welcome.

I just thought that this little ritual declaration should work in my general self presentation as in the header of each and every story presented. It is my declaration in full anyhow.

Who am I?

Well aged man, probably above most of my readers in age, but why not? I remember the movie, I have read a good deal of history and with my knowledge I find it highly interesting to toy with history, creating an alternative history to many sad stories at Earth. I admit to having been inspired by the story of the colonist conquest of Chile, how the local indian tribe of the Mapuche resisted the conquest for hundreds of years. I compare Jake Sully with the historical Mapuche war chieftain Lautaro and see many similiarities...

During my study days I read the sci-fi novel "The Word for Society is Forest" by Ursula LeGuin. This book is the closest similiar to mr. Cameron's narrative, IMHO. I have put together a meeting between the na'vi of mr. Cameron and the crecchi of miss LeGuin.

What has been my main inspiration for writing these stories? In once sentence: Toying with a dismal history. I start with this premise: "Backward culture gets assistance from advanced culture to withstand a brutal assault. Which measures are then taken to ensure that the present success isn't just temporary?" I spin a little around the idea, I take it like a "test tube for experimental history" with many, many depressing stories about aboriginal peoples at Earth being defeated and crushed, and try to turn it around. Here comes careful preparations for an imminent re-invasion, flexible diplomacy, creative organizational work to shape a body able to take another strike in solar plexus without collapsing, some intelligent tactics and strategy, and a wee bit of technology at least temporarily available.

Out of this a building comes something far more robust than what was originally present. I regard this flexibility with adapting traditions to new conditions as the main secret which kept the Mapuche in Chile independent for so long against a very heavy colonialist pressure.

A follow-up to my main story "The Long War", about secondary events, other theaters, after the end of the conflict itself... Hope that it might be of interest to some at least!

Human Life at Pandora after the Eviction reviews
Stories from the six years between the 1st and 2nd Human - Na'vi War. Rated T because there are some scenes that might be disturbing for some.

Trying out the Pandora Formula reviews
An old man remembers what his mother told him, about another world also under attack by human infringement, the planet of Athshe. Might it be a good idea to go to them to share ideas and experiences, how they managed to evict meddlesome human intruders?

The Danger of Disunity reviews
The RDA inc. may be dead but there are other and more sneaky vultures in the universe... waiting for a chink in the protection around Pandora - and finding it when a social rebellion is raging!

The Long war reviews
My view of the first return in power of RDA - under a new management with a new and more patient, courteous and apparently benevolent leadership - but: With a sly and more determined plan to get the minerals wanted. A more dangerous opponent?

Old Fears Come to Life reviews
A possible sequel to the movie, given hints from mr. Cameron, may be as a 2nd sequel. Familiar characters only as cameos at the start, otherwise OC.
