  • Ashes (Day 56)

    Shrieking howls and curses filled the air behind me. I quickened my pace, not daring to look back. I knew I’d see my footprints trailing after me, marking where I’d been, and making it impossible to hide. I was so tired of running. The pebb...

  • Ouroboros

  • Relieving Pressure by Applying Pressure (Day 54)

  • Forced to Flee (Day 50)

  • True Impotence

  • Henry's Last Stand (Day 44)

  • A Day Out

  • An Old Form of Protection (Day 38)

    Matt passed a hand over his eyes. In part to shield them from the coastal wind that carried grit and salt. In part it was to force himself to look away from the false beauty of the coast. He had once loved swimming in those dark waters but now they onl...

  • The Day The Music Died

  • On Patrol: Catching Up

  • An Uncompromising Solution (Day 30)

    With a heavy heart, I gently closed the faded yellow cover of the book. It was hard to breathe, hard to think. I felt sad— no, I felt more than sad, I felt sorrowful as if my heart had turned to stone. Impossible! Unfeeling stone never hurt this ...

  • (Day 13) Philosophy Through Breakfast

    He stood in the kitchen, propped up against the counter to eat his breakfast (he rarely ever sat down to eat) and stared at his bowl of cereal. The little hoops of compressed multi-grain were floating in the milk, the rest of their wholesome compatriot...

  • Accidental p-Zombies

    Neural implants? Sure: molecular electronics; NEMS extruding CNT fibers like feelers right into the midst of synapses; sniffing at neurotransmitters and emitting their own. Whatever sort of mental boost you wanted, there was a plug-in for it. We wanted...

  • By the Light of the Distant Sun (Day 24)

    I twisted my heel pushing hard pushing against the sand. Swinging my other leg around slowly, I brought it straight up over my head. My muscles screamed in agony but I had to continue. The dance must continue. Faster now, I pivoted swinging my hips rou...

  • Another Chart (Day 17)

    Dr. Sephiroth scanned over the charts and reports, briefly stopping on the Notable Entries page. She glanced up, “Are you sure that the Potentials all came from the employees that were first-timers?” “Yes.” Was all that Dr. Hayl...

  • It All Adds Up to Trouble (Day 19)

    “Stop pretending you’re asleep.” Agnes’ voice penetrated the thick comforter I had pulled over my head easier than any knife. I didn’t move. If I could just get back to sleep, she would go away. Even a witch wouldn’t...

  • A Taste of Garlic (Day 18)

    Angeline couldn’t help herself. She was nervous and there was so much food in front of her. She grabbed a warm roll and took a big bite to calm her nerves. It was dryer than it looked and she washed it down with another mouthful of the sweet wine...

  • Ember

    It is the faintest glimmering of a spark. It floats in suspension in a bottle, the field it generates holding it equidistant from the surfaces that enclose it. It is an Ember, and it pulses gently, hungrily. It has memories, of a sort, quantum states t...
