Stories

  1. Sequel to "In the company of bats"

    The papers in the Forest Drive petrol station gives Obama (Caitlin likes to call him Osama) a strong lead over McCain; she makes a point of spitting when she steps outside. As she lights up there’s a blare from her SUV and she’s hollerin...

  2. Do NOT turn around.

    Therys’ athletic leap took him over the low boundary hedge and into the thickets, leaving Counselor Nyci and the Denar delegation staring after his swiftly vanishing form. “…The Court Magician: Therys of the Golden Heart, Keeper of th...

  3. Whiteout, 02

    Her Mom is on her cell to work so Kim’s sketching when the sleezebag walks in. A cop too, but cops aren’t all that – if you’ve got the uniform down you’re just doing variations on faces, so: boring. But a genuine done-time...

  4. His Final Wish

    She obeyed the will: flying from Oman to London, then taking another three and-a-half hours by bus to reach Pentland Firth and the Scottish isle of Floasa. Like its sister Stroma, the lure of the mainland and hardship of living on such a barren, rain-b...

  5. Stairway to offramp twenty-seven.

    The French have a phrase for it, and it’s this: l’esprit d’escalier, the spirit of the stair. Well, Joan is on the freeway when it hits her – I should’ve told the little cow at check-in that I’d find seventy dollars ...

  6. Pacifist

    The school bus has dropped them off early again and Erza drops back into his own waking nightmare, hoping that today – three days in, c’mon, a whole three days – they’ll have forgotten what he’d said at recess, Monday. Fif...

  7. Woe Betide the Gatekeepers

    As children know their drunken father’s footfall at night, so angels know her tread and weep, helpless, despairing as the axe cleaves in twain the monolithic gates to the Underplane, sealed and hidden at the heart of heaven, long before the time ...

  8. A Useful Lesson

    The boy winced and tore the last tiny mouth from his left forearm. The arm pulsed… bloody, streaked with purple demon spit. The foul little things skittered around the gatehouse – creatures happy to feed on livestock, to pillage and more, b...

  9. The Vampire and The Monk (II)

    He settled back in his underpadded seat and took a moment to enjoy the squalor of the tavern, so drab, so human… so alien. The orphans were perfect for the ritual. He had made them so – arranging their parent’s marriage, making townsp...

  10. Dieter touched his fingers to the wall.

    And pushed, cracking plaster and crushing concrete, pushed with both hands then strode through the weakened barrier. Above him, the building groaned as it shifted, trying to settle with one of its load-bearing structures now fragments beneath steel-toe...

  11. Merry? She was hammered.

    Christmas comes but five times a year, there’s never any warning and woe betide any liquor you might have stashed. First indication is your neighbours phoning you at work and telling you your house alarm has been wailing and wailing, your side wi...

  12. Kyle waits for his handler...

    … under the poplars beside Starbucks. He’d acclimatised to the tension of being a traitor to his country; waiting for an unscheduled, authoritative knock on the door (“Kyle Mitchem? I am placing you under…”), or a sudden, ...

  13. A RACE AGAINST TIME!

    Suddenly Jake stepped behind Margot, twisting her arm behind her back. Edna cursed, lept up from her seat at the poker table and immediately collapsed to the ground face first. “Poison!” growled Edna into the carpet. The seated Lawman lazil...

  14. The Vampire and The Monk (II)

    He settled back in his underpadded seat and took a moment to enjoy the squalor of the tavern, so drab, so human… so alien. The orphans were perfect for the ritual. He had made them so – arranging their parent’s marriage, making townsp...
