Welcome back for another Follow Friday! This week I’d like to direct your attention to @Etherius, aka Chris Lester, high school teacher, podcaster, and creator of the Metamor City Podcast, and two time Parsec Award winner. Metamor City is a sci-fi/fantasy anthology set in a world where magic and technology work together. It is a city piled upon itself where skyways held up by magic and anti-grav divide the city into four social levels. Walking the streets of Metamor, you could meet gods, werewolves, vampires, psis, wizards, or even Eli’s own prophet. A place where the citizens can accept an ancient threefold curse and reshape their very bodies, or live out their lives as mere mortal humans. Oh, and there is the occasional elf, too. Chris presides over an open world where he allows others to come in and act out stories in his world. These stories are done as full cast productions and paint a vivid picture of a rich world, and demonstrate how we strive to create our own certainties in a world where anything is subject to change without notice.

Follow @Etherius on twitter, if you’re one of the few who hasn’t done so already, and you’ll be given insight into his creative view of the world. And treated to examples of his creative turn of phrase. Of course, along with this you’ll see the tired, and sometimes exasperated, school teacher. Chris definitely has a fertile mind and interesting viewpoints. Go see for yourself.

That is it for today. We still have a poll in progress, so if you haven’t voted, please take a little time and respond. We are still working on our fund-raising drive so that we can afford to move to a new server and bring you a number of improvements to the site. We understand that times are tough and not everyone can afford to spare a few bucks. If you do have a little extra, we hope that you’ll donate to something that you believe in. We’d be flattered if that happened to be us. Thanks again to those folks who have been generous enough to donate a few dollars, or to bring our site to the attention of their friends. We’ll see you all next week!
