The Bronze Cord (2019) [Gematria 11.9] Leslye Lilker

  • Bronze picks up where Sanctuary left off.  It takes place primarily on the Enterprise as Jeremy Gill travels to his new diplomatic assignment on Vulcan. Here, in a manner both poignant and humorous, he has his first face-to-face meeting with Sahaj's biological father. He hopes to establish a rapport with Spock but it seems others have conspired to keep them apart. First published in 1980 and reprinted in 1983 and 1984, this novella (approx. 24,000 words) has been updated, and scenes revised.

Sanctuary Leslye Lilker

  • With a word count of 22,460, this former series of vignettes (Miscellanea 1-9 in IDIC #6) has been rewritten and now qualifies as a novella. This should not be a surprise to anyone who knows me, because I don't write short. The story picks up at the end of The Forging, with Spock returning to Starfleet, and follows Sahaj's first few days as he endeveours to keep his promise to practice Vulcan traditions. Sarek and Amanda and even his human, foster brother, try to help him make the transition in spite of secrets needing to be kept, and 'monsoon madness.' Original artwork by Alice Jones and P.S. Nim is included. This is Gematria 11.9, shortly before Haj's 12th birthday. Sanctuary  is available in mobi, epub, and pdf. When you order, you will be taken to paypal, where you may choose to donate via credit card or your paypal account. You will set the amount you are willing and able to donate. You will then be returned to the website for the download. If there are any problems please contact me at I will make it right.   Leah Charifson (AKA, Leslye Lilker)

The Ambassador's Son (2017 version) 10.41 Leslye Lilker

  • This is the novelization of the first, admittedly poorly executed version of the short story that appeared in IDIC #1 in 1975. It was expanded in 1977, and in 1995, although it was not published. In 2017 it was rewritten yet again, and published as a novel. Who is Sahaj, one might ask. He is Spock's out-of-wedlock son, ten-years-old, with the emotional control of a two-year-old. Spock's job is to prepare Sahaj for life on Vulcan. Sahaj is equally determined never to change. If there's any problem with the download, please let me know at I will make right whatever went wrong. Oh, I'm Leslye Lilker, Lubkin, Morrow, Leah Charifson   AKA Sahaj's Mama.

  • This is the second incarnation of this story, printed as it appeared in Sahaj Collected (1975), complete with typos, underdeveloped scenes and many other imperfections.

"Nothing Fishy Going On Here" (12.9) Leslye Lilker

  • This stand-alone, just-for-pun short story takes place almost three years after father and son meet for the first time. Those who have followed this series in the 70s and 80s, may see this as a perfectly possible progression in the relationship which started out so poorly in the fourth year of the first five-year mission (The Ambassador's Son.) Please note: “Fishy” was originally drafted in 1980 and revised in 2015. 21161 words (No illustrations)

Sahaj Collected: The Prequels 0.0 - 10.4 Leslye Lilker

  • This collection of stories is for people who are linear and therefore like to read in chronological order. Each story in the series (saga?) has a number behind the title, which corresponds to Sahaj’s age during the story. The series is sometimes referred to as “Gematria”, which is Hebrew for ‘numbers.’ The number provides an easy way to remember what happened when. Prequels contains the stories relating to Gematria 0.0 (Sahaj's conception) through 10.4, ending just before the beginning of The Ambassador's Son. In addition to the first, already published stories, there are two new stories included.  Limited artwork by PS Nim and Alice Jones.  About 77 pages.
