Preserving Eternity is novel set in an alternate version of Asia. It focuses on the Fumetsu, an immortal race based on feudal Japanese culture and history. Other races are based on Ainu, Tamil, and Korean cultures. The novel is written in first person present to reflect the uncertainties of being caught up in a chaotic revolution. Below are links to some articles connected to Preserving Eternity and its alternate world.
Chieshi is the city-state that lies at the heart of Preserving Eternity, the first novel in the Fumetsu Cycle. It surrounds the mountain of Fumetsu-zan on which the older members of the immortal Fumetsu race live.
An article about Japanese castle design and warfare in the wake of Kumamoto Castle being damaged in an earthquake. It was the inspiration for the fictional city of Chieshi in my novel Preserving Eternity.
