Stories

  1. Ze Future.

    You know what, I’m not actually going to write a story. This is a personal log about what would scare the hell out of me in the future. Scenario: The oil crisis has created a post-apocalyptic wasteland of useless gadgetry and a graveyard of vehic...

  2. La lumière de l'alcool

    With a stricken, forlorn clarity I pushed my empty cart through the aisles of Blanchard’s liquor store. Passing the golden-wrapped pillaging of liquors and hard, vile corners of vodka, I came to a bend which brought me to a cask colored wonderlan...

  3. Fructiality

    Scott bounced on the ball of his feet eagerly, rubbing his hands together as if he was praying for heat. Shirtless and alone, he waited for the lazy, mechanical beeping to signal his night was in order. Aside from the usual accompaniment of muffled Bar...

  4. Greensleeves

    They sat on a coarse, mortared outcropping underneath the shadow of St. Paul’s Cathedral. A crisp sunlight had filled the air that morning and refused to leave, affording the couple the pleasure of removing their overcoats while they skipped the ...

  5. The Talking Clock.

    After closing time at the bar, Darren was proudly showing a group of friends his new apartment. He drunkely stumbled to the bedroom where one of his friends noticed a large, brass gong and mallet sitting in the corner. “What’s up with the b...

  6. Untitled

    “Everybody keeps asking me how she’s doing,” John said, staring at the mirror before him. “Has she really lost her mind. You know what I say?” He took a long pull from his cigarette and exhaled sharply. “I couldnR...

  7. Drinkin Buddies

    “The bottle…” Chester slurred, “is the most incongr…inconge—er…I say…wot?” He turned to his companion. “The ’ell did you say, mate?” “Nothin’,” Lewis said, as he ...

  8. Magical happy fun coffee time

    “My good dear barista, I need some assistance. I’m glum and so chummy in the morning.” “Why good sir, dear patron, you look quite so boring. Why don’t you take a cup of brown glory?” “Precisely my friend, that&...

  9. A Frail Psyche

    Grendel had never been happier in her life. “Its so beautiful!” she coo’d, holding up a bright, cashmere sweater. She hugged the cloth tight to her chest and spun around in circles as she danced with the twinkling Christmas lights. Th...

  10. The First Day.

    Huh, Carpenter thought, not a bad day’s work delivering mail. He stuffed the package underneath the desk and leaned forward to proof-read newspapers.

  11. The First Day.

    He walked through the door, careful not to disturb his package. The hum of machines filled the air as he was approached by a middle-aged man in a dark suit. “Ah! Carver! It’s so nice you’re joining our team! I’m Mr. Fischer.R...

  12. Forgiveness

    My Dearest Emanuelle, While I’ve hoped I’ve been everything I could be for you, I know that some times I have let you down. This letter is my apology to you and, lest you forget who your father is, a declaration of my spirit. You know that you had ...

  13. Modified Enemy At The Gates Scene

    “Listen to me Mrs. Philipov.” Commisar Danilov’s eyes pierced the dusty air. Mother Philipov stood silent as he approached her. “You must listen to me. This is very difficult to understand.” Mother Philipov’s eyes gr...

  14. Forgiveness

    My Dearest Emanuelle, While I’ve hoped I’ve been everything I could be for you, I know that some times I have let you down. This letter is my apology to you and, lest you forget who your father is, a declaration of my spirit. You know that ...

  15. Cruor

    Adran Brown rocked back and forth in his ancient, wooden chair. He sat under the moonlight on his porch, breathing in the coastal Maine wind, and tried to count the number of rocks on the harbor. “Yep,” he said to no one in particular. R...

  16. An Exercise in Dialogue

    Alexander leaned forward in his chair. “You mean to tell me,” he whispered, his eyes narrowing on the figure sitting before him, “that your Martha, your precious Martha, has been having an affair?” “Yes,” Sebastian r...

  17. Pharmacopia (Mature)

  18. A New York City Moment (Mature)

  19. A Simple Game

    Smoke fluttered from the unashed cigarette that clung to Dmitri’s lips. “Your move, I believe,” he said out of the corner of his mouth, each word gutted by a heavy Russian accent, as he slid the revolver across the table. Vincent reac...

  20. Nepotism

    Matt strolled into the nightclub as if he had just woken up. “Get me a Coors Light,” he shouted, through the din of the ebullent Reggaeton. “Put it on my tab.” Winslow nodded in return. “Gotcha,” he replied. “...
