  5. "Daddy, I want breakfast"

    “Daddy, I want breakfast!” Inwardly I wince. Through my eyelids I see that morning is here, if barely. I struggle through the tatters of my dreams. It’s time to move, sit up, stagger out of bed. The cool morning air robs the warmth of...

  6. How it Should Have Ended

  9. Done in by a +1 wooden sword

    Loric let out a deep sigh, backed by long years as Justice. He cradled his beer in its well worn cup, as his unfocused gaze drifted over his fellows at the tavern. “He slaughtered a dragon being raised by Orrin. Found it in a cave, deep into a sh...

  11. Inficly

    Paul dropped me a note — The latest version of his interactive fiction system was ready, and I had been chosen to try it out. He gave me a quick rundown of the new features. “I think we have really taken it to the next level with this relea...

  12. Let's Read

    Click Click Click Words were drawn to my screen from a distant source. Held there, signaling for my attention. I the spider, considering my next juicy morsel. Would I find a poem? A risqué tale about two lovers? A zombie holocaust? Or kids on a swing?...

  13. Telegram

    “AM FINE LOVE ESCAPED HURRICANE ARRIVED HAVANA LATE MONDAY” The guy dressed as Elvis who had knocked at my door shrugged. “Sorry, but since they paid me to sing it, so I felt much obliged to do so.”

  15. The Oppressed

    I faced my opponent, hands already up. Not in supplication or defiance. I had just scrubbed in, but I knew I was defeated. “Dammit, if we don’t perform this procedure, there’s a good chance that the girl will die!” “No, Do...

  16. Lost in the present

    The time traveller returned. And sneezed. The basement was dusty, not the clean workspace expected. Somehow it had become someone else’s space. “What happened?” The time traveller thought back to the events now far in the past. On arr...

  17. One last ride before bed

    The gift brought tears to the eyes of his parents. They pulled the concealing curtain open. Revealed the perfect frame balanced on its kickstand. Their little boy let out a squeal. Abandoned their side. Pedaling faster, accelerating. Slowing, Turning. ...

  18. Mama Bear, what's your twenty?

    Mother of bride found at an Arkansas truck stop — wedded to groom.

  19. The eternal dud

    Dormant, I dwell beneath the dome of stars. My detonator destroyed – damaged I meet my doom amidst devastation. My devisers developed data on their day-star. They discovered it was a dwarf, and was devolving rapidly. Then came their deadly disput...

  20. No margin for error

    We were prepping the device for its first real test when it went off, lighting up our test silo. Roy, my supervisor was the first to … to be converted. I saw the plasma hit him, and somehow go through him. As chain lighting, it arced among the be...
