I am a Storyteller (About Eric Blue)

I

Eric Blue is a modern era storyteller who sees things differently than most writers do. He spots the “story behind the story” and his mind works on the “what could have been” scenario. He focuses on the mirror image to give the readers an in-depth look at how life could have been.

I am fascinating with stories-how stories change lives, how stories influence histor(ies) and universe(s), how stories have been recorded and told.

His work may be fiction, but it also could have been today’s headline news. Eric’s writing is built on a passion to boldly go where other writers seldom thing about going.

Kindly note that some of Eric’s work is on a free-to-the-public basis. Being a full-time businessman and family man, Eric is open to receiving ideas from the public that can bring to life in the form of a book. With his novels and short stories that have being available free of charge to the public, remuneration will not be available for ideas provided. The pleasure will be in seeing your idea being brought to life!

He is always on the lookout for cartoonists too, as drawing is a big part of the Eric Blue storytelling plan.

Some of My Works

Ch.7: Life on the Island (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

Robben Island Prison boss Vorster arrives at work to find that he has yet again been deceived by his principals. Nelson Mandela was removed from his prison cell during the night without his knowledge. The night shift wardens have been sworn to secrecy. Nobody, including Vorster, knows where Mandela is being kept. The island has some visitors with CNN television reporter Louise Burrell, and her assistant (Lindiwe) and cameraman, having arrived to interview Mandela. With Mandela not on the island, Vorster plays tough and refuses to entertain the government letter that Louise has which will allow her to interview the ANC icon. Vorster orders for the CNN camera to be confiscated and for Louise and her colleagues to be sent from the island. Watching in the distance is Pieter Erasmus. He quickly realises that Louise’s ‘assistant’ (Lindiwe) is not an African-American. He decides to follow the ladies back to the mainland to see why they are so interested in Mandela.

Ch.20: Ring, ring goes the telephone (The Mandela Effect V.2, Daughter and Wife) e.1

Pieter and Jaap always spoke about leaving the police and forming their own security firm. Jaap sets Pieter up with a meeting at his home and at the last minute, changes the venue to Wingate Golf Club outside of Pretoria. Pieter wonders if Jaap has set him up to be detained by the cops.
He goes to the golf club and meets up with Lucas Sithole.
Pieter cringes as Sithole was a former Umkhonto we Sizwe man who set up a bomb that killed seven whites in Johannesburg in the late 980s. Pieter was about to do business with the enemy, something that he blamed F.W. de Klerk for doing.
The trio meet and Pieter is offered the chance to lead the security team that will safeguard the Marikana mine in the North West Province, where miners are striking for better wages. The mine bosses know that a day of productivity lost costs them millions of Rands.

Ch.28: Outsmarting the Less Brainy (The Mandela Effect V.2, Daughter and Wife) e.1

Police Commissioner Mathibe asked Pieter to brief the cops. This seemed odd to Pieter as Mathibe held the rank, not him.
Pieter sets up a coding system. Code Blue is for the firing of two rounds of live ammunition to send a warning message to the strikers at the main gate. Code Green is for the firing of water canons at the main gate. Code Red is for firing of rubber bullets and teargas. Pieter is questioned about firing live ammunition, and he backs his decision in the absence of Mathibe. Pieter the racist was back.
Mathibe fumes when he finds out that Pieter has tampered with the usual riot police colour coding system.
The war outside the main gate took its toll with fifteen miners killed along with five law enforcement officers.

Ch.06: A Man on a Mission (The Mandela Effect V.2, Daughter and Wife) e.1

Pieter Erasmus wakes up in 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria. He finds his wrists chained to the bed. The cops want information from him as to what is his link with Lindiwe and why did she disappear and where too. Having Lost Lindiwe Snr and Lindiwe Jnr, Pieter opts to fulfil the wish of his racist parents by plotting to kill black people. After escaping from the hospital, he heads to Pretoria central armed with a shotgun. His mind races through South Africa’s history regarding the road to democracy which included the assassination of Chris Hani (SA Communist Party leader) and the AWB’s attempted assistance in keeping Lucas Mangope in charge of the Apartheid puppet black homeland of Bophuthatswana. When two of his cop colleagues were killed by blacks in Mamelodi, his racist spirit grew to new heights. Despite this, he refrains from pulling the shotgun trigger.

Ch.14: Zimbabwean Transformation (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

It is agreed to form a new constitution for Zimbabwe with several ZAPU members to serve on the new Cabinet. Perhaps Mugabe had listened where PW Botha wouldn’t and Zimbabwe would be the success story. Of course, Mugabe has built his own counter plans. He has no intention of letting Nkomo gain too much power. His first prize is a one-party state. However, for the sake of diplomacy with the international Human Rights lawyer, Pearce Ellison, he pretends to toe the line. Mugabe realises that Mandela could soon be released from the island, and he needs to position himself as a winner in the minds of the people, before the ANC man takes the limelight.
