  4. Diffusing the Situation

    Engiman was sprinting. People always wondered why superheroes wear so little clothes, or lightweight lycra jumpsuits. It’s the running. If he’d taken a whole suit of armour, it would take him an hour to run a block. Plus coffee breaks. He t...

  5. The Worst Job in the World

    Duck suits are yellow. This is the norm. We didn’t like it. As I watched the more realistic white and brown duck-man with a green duck head zig-zag in and out of sight, I counted to ten. Then I decided ten was a boring number and counted to fifty...

  12. For those of ye who recognise this tale, and ye that don't also

    But that man – if they caught sight of him home in Ithaca, land you here in Ithaca? Who did they say they are? Lord of the Taphian men who love their oars. He, I gather, no longer ventures into town on a wave-washed island, and hard men, savages,...

  13. From Greece with Haste

  17. The Revolution Begins!

    “They say that there is no victory. They say that when facing higher, tougher powers, that we can never win! Do you know what I say to that?!? I say that they can take their suppressive nonsense and shove it up their own rear ends, because we are...

  20. Introductions at last

  25. Blood from Steam

    He slowly shifted through the sea of clutter covering the floor. He stepped on a shard of broken glass and his foot begins to bleed. The door knob felt hot and hurts his hand. He picked up a spent shirt from the floor and used it to open the door. He w...
