Gruesome Fragment

NOTE: This piece was originally intended to slot into the cryopunk world I was developing and displayed in my post “Too Many People.” Who knows? I still might. WARNING: This fragment is graphic. You’ve been warned. He didn’t know her name; he didn’t know any names of his horrors.  But she was young and round … More Gruesome Fragment

Next Of Kin

“Sir, we have your extension as a tertiary contact for Mrs. White. Something needs to be done, sir. She’s causing a host of problems.” “Where’s her daughter? And what the hell am I still doing on their contact information ten years later?” “Primary and secondary contacts Rebecca and Jordy Fordham are currently unavailable. Their phones … More Next Of Kin

Perspective & Identity

A while back, I posted a piece about the text-based adventure community I participate in: Improbable Island. In the eight or so months that I’ve now been playing this game/writing with these wonderful people, I have two characters that I use.

The Liminal

I’m sitting outside our building, shoes off, toes exploring the grass, watching cars pass. It was only two weeks ago that I was at home, enjoying the silence, feeling like there were very few people left in the world. Two weeks ago that this building where I find employment was furthest from my mind. Two … More The Liminal
