Space and Stuff

September 8, 2021

Dave’s new job, working on the wall of Copernicus sets off a series of events that just keep escalating really, what starts as political discourse somehow ends up being a race through time, space, and reality itself. Join a group of weirdos and oddballs as they explore the very complex social and physical aspects of the ‘stuff’ that surrounds them.

Dr. Anne Patterson stepped from the ship with reticence. After a three-month journey, they’d finally arrived. She hadn’t been sure what to expect, but it certainly wasn’t the beauty that greeted her. Where Earth had so long been covered with smog, filth, and an over-abundance of industry, the planet Aglaia was the complete opposite, and it was almost frightening in its freshness. It was bright, clean, and new. The two suns could be seen when…

My Farm

MY FARM by Art Hernandez I pressed a button on the remote control and the left quarter’s window facing the harvest appeared from behind the slowly rising radiation shutters. Outside the dome…

腐乱 By Kadath Bird & Chie Sakaguchi “Since the day we bit into the fruits of the knowledge of good and evil, mankind has known that they will only damn themselves with their own ability to create..” 地獄 (Hell) They called me cancer. As the centuries passed, it became ever more true. Patches of sand surrounded what was left of my body. I watched it slowly shift in the wind; something I haven’t felt in…

I’d always loved maps. In fact the walls of my office at home were covered with them. Almost every part of the globe was represented there with some areas even being duplicated as I acquired an occasional historical map.      Behind this apparent obsession there was however a practical use. And this was to track the progress in the promotion of a C.D that my band had recorded. Since its release I’d been sending copies…

In the cigarette smoke there were pictures. And as the smoke rose and dissipated, so the pictures faded and were gone. At the window a view of the old gate in the field unused.      Beyond the gate the fields rolled on forever. These were the meadows for the pathways of the travelers or perhaps they were pathways for the meadows themselves untraveled.      In the shadows of the sun lay memories. As within the…

The time of death was set between 10:30 and 11:30 P.M.. That’s what medical examiner, Roy Tollage, told detective Robert (Buck) Bruckner from Washington Metro. “One blow to the back of the head with a heavy object, maybe a pipe or something like that.” Roy told detective Bruckner that he would have the full report on his desk in a day or two. The autopsy would be helpful but it looked like just one blow….

The prompt was Starlight- and I was thirty nine. It is short and admittedly clumsy- I found it on line- but aspects of it I do appreciate. I admit forgetting all about it. Felt I owed it one more airing. Perhaps, just perhaps I say, it is worthy to revisit, rewrite and let myeself expand upon it. ‘What a way to spend my fortieth birthday,’ Sam thought as he stared at the flashing calendar on…

I Want My Alien Back

July 26, 2008

“He’s not in Area 51? What do you mean he’s not in Area 51?” said Lou Diamond’s wife. “Then you better go after him.” “But, honey, I-” “No!” she insisted angrily, her finger outstretched and pointing at the front door. “No buts! Go back to wherever your friggin’ beer-guzzling astronaut friend left him and bring him home.  Now!” Lou Diamond could never stand up against the will-let alone the perseverance-of his lovely Miranda.  They had…

Queen of the Damned

June 8, 2008

 The old queen never knew what hit him when you flew from the shadows and latched onto his leathery neck.  You didn’t know it was a pint and half of blood was boy blood, until you tried to toss the corpse in a garbage bin.  Your fingers had wrapped around something that felt like a polish sausage and you dropped it like a hot crucifix. When you got back the Den of the Brood, you…

The Shadow of the Crimson Light

September 5, 2004

No, no and no! This is not, I repeat, not from the strains of over-working. Please, doctor, you of all people should see that I am indeed too excited and on the verge on a breakdown, but again I must implore you to believe that under no circumstances have they been resulting from years and years of scientific labor of what every man and woman seem to hold me responsible for and congratulate me due…

Iblis Concept

May 12, 2003

Humanity had sent him. Iblis was human, of course, but not Humanity. Humanity was the single, but often times conflicting, controlling entity of the universe of thought and feeling. Iblis was a mere outcast. He always had been, since his youth. And so he’d never had much contact with other forms of life; even his own. But, apparently, it was decided that he had had enough. The only time Humanity ever graced the physical realm…
