Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 108: Xan Medani Part 2

Born in Egypt, Xan (Alexand Medani) was told by his mother, that his father was an Irish immigrant, who left her before he was born. He enjoyed a happy childhood, as despite her youth, his mother adored him. Unfortunately when he was seven, Egypt was declared a death camp, by the military. Xan’s mother managed to smuggle him across the Red Sea, to Saudi Arabia. They were separated on the journey and Xan never saw her again. As an orphan, Xan lead a nomadic life, wandering across country, never staying in one place for too long. He tended farms, begged and found food and shelter whenever he could. At the age of thirteen, whilst working on an apple farm in Iran, he began to lose his hair. The owners of the farm saw this as a bad omen, and he was chased away and told not to come back. Hungry and frightened, the teenager wandered the land trying to hide his alopecia from people.

Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 31: The Floating Asylum Part 3

After returning from the science laboratory, (read The Floating Asylum 2) and further experiments, Alexand and Juba manage to remain together, but something is happening to Alexand, and she needs Juba to help her as her hair begins to fall out. This story is part of a series which concludes next week, and is taken from Juba’s perspective. (Trivia: Hair-loss is associated with a ‘plague’ sweeping through communities on the outside of the ship. Alexand’s wife Katherine De Somme died from it after being ‘silenced’ by the military, but Alexand is convinced this is not the same condition.) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
