What is coming soon out of the creative (some would say warped) mind of Steve LeBel?
What’s Next for Bernie?
After doing a survey of readers, several ideas have made the short list:
Bernie and the Time Lords
Bernie is off to fix another broken universe. This one should have been easy because all he had to do was reestablish trading relationships so the world of Flo would return to mining the dust the gods wanted to import.
But every time Bernie worked things out, things would change and the deal would fall though. He finally realized that someone was changing the past, and that was undermining any chance he had of reestablishing trade. So Bernie’s next quest is to find the Time Lords and get them to stop changing things. But he has to hurry because his boss thinks it might be easier to wipe out the people and try another product.
Bernie and the Game Master
Bernie is sent in to a highly advanced world to fix another trade problem. He discovers it’s full of robots who maintain everything. But they’re breaking down because there are no people tending to them. All the people are now in a virtual reality world which they found much more interesting.
The only way Bernie can get them to wake up is to get to the Game Master. And the only way to do that is for Bernie and his friends to enter the virtual world. But can he and his friends slay orcs and goblins and make it to the Game Master without being able to use their godly powers?
Bernie and the Small Gods
The plot lines are still being developed, but the basic story is that Bernie has another universe to fix. This one has been producing exotic incenses for centuries. The gods really enjoy them, but for a while now, the people on the planet have not brought their incense to trade.
When Bernie looks into the problem, he discovers the incense is being used in the worship of other gods. Bernie finds there is a lot more to the story. A few years back, a group of gods arrived on the planet and seem to have taken over. They call themselves Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Apollo, and Hades. They’ve been moving around a lot over the last few years, and they’re tired of it. They have no intention of moving again.
