  1. Dust

    Time seemed to stretch on to the horizon, shadows grew long as the sun moved across it. The river had gone long ago as had the trees. Now there was scrub brush, and sand was beginning to pile up along the trail in small drifts. The air was warmer. Clem...

  2. The Road

    Darkness was decending upon the mountains as the three companions climbed up the side of the ancient rock wall. The stones were large oblong and old, and finding fingerholds was like trying to squeeze fingers between bricks set in a wall. Soon Ella w...

  8. A Blackness
