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.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.

Ch.37: The Great Puppet Show (The Mandela Effect V.2, Daughter and Wife) e.1

The puppet show was good. Police Commissioner Lawrence Mathibe was answering questions and telling Advocate Dali Mhlaba exactly what he wanted to hear.
Pieter realised that he needed a fairy godmother to save him. Mathibe mentions that Pieter had given the order to the cops to open fire on the strikers. Outside in the streets, the cry of ‘One settler, one bullet’ changes to ‘one settler, two bullets’.
The next day, Pieter goes to Mamelodi East for the funeral of Lindiwe Buthelezi Snr, who succumbed to her wounds after being shot by Pieter in the North-West. He is stopped at the gate of the cemetery and told by the security guard that the Buthelezi family do not want him at graveside.
While the blacks at the gate chant racist slogans at him, he hears his father’s voice in his head. ‘The blacks do not have brains. They just know how to steal and destroy.”

Ch.29: Apartheid Through a Looking Glass (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

General du Toit heads off in a huff at not having succeeded in getting information out of Pieter Erasmus. Then another, more liberal, man appears. Professor J.G. Strijdom. His mother was a big fan of the former South African Prime Minister, by the same name. While Strijdom is actually sent to get information out of Pieter, it turns out the other way around. Pieter learns that Mandela is back on the island, and that the Professor is just as cautious of his own colleagues, as he is. The Professor feels that Apartheid has another 10 years to go before it crumbles, but Pieter knows that is simply too long to wait. Until government get the answers that they are looking for, the ‘Looking Glass’ project will continue in secret at a place not far from the original spot at the Natal border.

Ch.33: Pearce Hits the big time (The Mandela Effect, V.1 Black and White) e.1

Pearce Ellison arrives at Pollsmoor Prison in Tokai, Cape Town, for a meeting with the prisons Acting Commissioner Mark van Pletzen. He finds the Acting Commissioner to be more liberal-minded than he expected. This was a man who wanted to fit in with the pending New SA, but of course he could not say that to his bosses. Van Pletzen confirms that Mandela is on the island. The Acting Commissioner puts Pearce on the spot. “What would you do if you were in P.W. Botha’s shoes?” There is an instant chemistry between Pearce and Mark. Both are men interested in the future, rather than the past. Mark and Pearce agree to meet at Pollsmoor at 7am the next day and to go to the Cape Town Harbour for a trip to Robben Island.

Ch.16: Trigger reaction, or not (The Mandela Effect V.2, Daughter and Wife) e.1

Pieter was a loose cannon. He did not belong to an ultra-right wing militant party. He took aim at a black man at the nearest point of the square to him, but the shotgun refused to fire. The Lieutenant carefully took his weapon apart and cleaned it like he did daily. Again, he attempted to find his crouched shooting position, but four cop cars stopped below, halting his plan.
The cops were on the lookout for him following his absenteeism from work and he needed to keep a low profile.
He wanted to shoot, and even when the cops vehicles left there was another delay.
“I will always be here for you no matter what actions you carry out,” said the white woman to the black man in the soap opera on television.
