Helel ben Shahaar
Hello, friends. My name is Milan, but on this here wiki, I’m better known by my pen name Helel ben Shahaar. Globally, I’m also known as Hel, Slav (thank you, Diex), and Boreal.
I’ve been writing since the ripe old age of 5, and I soon found that I have a knack for poetry. When I was 7, I wrote a poem about bread. My teacher was so impressed by it (she couldn’t believe that someone as young as me had such a wide vocabulary) that she sent it to a writers’ magazine for publication. It ended up being published, but the magazine has since run out. So, I’m technically a published writer, but no one really knows about it.
My primary writing genres are Horror (obviously) and Dark Fantasy. I like to write in both prose and poetry.
My writer role-models are Robert Ervin Howard, who taught me the beauty of archaic speech (that I now vehemently abuse) and none other than our very own Matthew V. Brockmeyer, who inspired me not to shy away from graphic violence and sexuality in my writing, and whom I consider an honorary pack member.
Meine fave werks: I’ve re-read my stories on the wiki so many times I’m now almost ashamed of how bad they sound. But if I had to single out my best ones, those would be:
Requiem for Morning Star - The poem about the greatest of all the angels.
Hedgehogs - Written in memory of my beloved grandfather. Depiction of strange event that took place after his passing.
Persistence Hunting - A new perspective on the hunter and the prey.
The Shelf of Corpses - A man has a macabre hobby. Or does he...
Stargazer - A tale of slavery, misery, obsession, and freedom. Based on eponymous song by Rainbow.
Other projects: I'm currently working on a novel about angels, which I hope to make real by the end of this year.
In conclusion, have a great day, everyone! Read good stuff. Drink good beer. Live a good life.
