DAN R. ARMAN
Welcome to My Worlds!
Who I am:
A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, Dan R. Arman decided he wanted to tell stories. Stories about other worlds populated by interesting characters, because he thought these people and worlds would help him reflect on the world he was living in, its beauty, horrors and absurdity. While he was starting to pursue this dream of being a science fiction and fantasy author, he began teaching English Composition at Stark State College in Ohio. For several years, he worked as a newspaper reporter, an editor and now teaches literature and writing at an online high school. He holds a master’s degree in English literature and rhetoric from Kent State University. He currently lives in Akron, OH with his wife and two cats. Riding a Black Horse is his third novel.

RIVER OF DREAMS
A mysterious explosion in a backwater part of the galaxy sends a young Coalition officer and his alien partner Cham T’Baal on a covert mission to recover weapons secrets that could tip the scales of power on a interstellar level from falling into the wrong hands But that is the least of their troubles as they face political and personal turmoil, and Cham must face the mistakes of his past.
“Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups... So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.”
