‘Apeiron’ by Daniel Peniston
In the year 1900, Jean was diving off the coast of the Greek island, Antikythera, when his friend, Ilias, rose to the surface holding a severed arm. It was this remnant of corroded bronze that led to one of mankind’s greatest discoveries.
The Antikythera Mechanism.
The spirit of adventure led Jean to follow Ilias to the ocean floor, where he pushed the limits of his lungs to reach the scattered bones of an ancient ship. It was there, half buried beneath a layer of sand, that he found a rare and beautiful relic.
The Apeiron. A key unlike any other, for it unlocked the unlimited power of the stars.
The charm had captured Catharina’s imagination since she was a babe in her mother’s lap, and was passed on to her when she turned ten. It was all she ever wanted, and in truth, it was all they had to give their cherished only child.
But I knew the terrible truth. What coiled like a noose around her neck was no lucky trinket. It was a death sentence.

BENEATH THE STONE
Book Trailer for Ron Howard’s #Project Imagination
The statues surrounding Olympus were once living mythical creatures and mighty gods before being turned to stone by the immortal Gorgon sisters during a great battle. Known as Dimidiums, the magic of Olympus allows these souls a brief escape from their stone skin. This is the tragic story of the goddess Artemis and her lover, Orion.
“No matter the space between them, the centuries stolen by sunsets, she fights for a moment of connection, chasing the fading light for a chance to see it dance in his eyes. Artemis would surrender all the stars in the sky to feel the warmth of Orion’s pulse beneath the stone.”
