  • The Search For Death

    Jeron stared at Kyle, who seemed lost in thought. Jeron hated interrupting his train of thought. Truth be told, he hated the same old debate about ‘derailing trains’ and what-not. “I think I may have an idea!” “You do?R...

  • To the Event Horizon

    Fast were the reactions. Virtual particle/antiparticle pairs appeared, interacted with space-time, disappeared. Some annihilated one another, but others were torn apart as the black hole swallowed one, letting the other one loose unto the Universe. The...

  • On Butterfly Wings: Void

    “One more, please,” she requested, holding her glass forward for me to take. I hesitated; she’s been here for hours, and this would have been her 27th drink. Not a good sign. However, I relented. If she had problems, they’re her...

  • When Black Holes Collide

    175m. below Geneva, he pushed the button. It turned on, collapsed, and devoured the universe. “Shit,” he cursed as he fell in. Dumb humans.

  • SuperHero Black Hole: Part II

    Time to explain the limits of my ability. Ready? You see, every second that expires of every hour of every day becomes part of The Past. Once it’s past, it’s gone. Geronimo. Adios. Whatever. But every second that has YET to happen, that has...

  • The Hole

    “You hitting up Gecko’s after work?” David said over the headset as Peter was hauling his second to last barge of garbage to be put into the space station’s black hole core. The station ran on the gravity from the black hole spi...

  • Black Hole Dream-Scape

    The incessant chirping of his iphone woke Alton from a peaceful dream. If reality could only be so sweet. No, reality was a black hole dream-scape designed to crush his spirit. He didn’t even pretend to be awake at 3PM on a Friday. “Yeah, w...

  • Message In A Vacuum Bottle

    “So it’s all completely consistent, then?” the visiting researcher asked. She and the tour guide stood at a bank of monitors arrayed on folding tables. One end of the room was given over to a forest of duct-work and wires that fed int...

  • Breakthrough (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 122)

    We rested for awhile. Al said he had to do some fiddling around with stuff and went into the projector room. He was kind enough to play for us some film from later on in the timeline. I think it was the thirteenth movie of the fourth reboot of Star Tre...

  • Double Vision (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 123)

    Zoe smiled, her eyebrows arching. “Still with us, I see.” “Uhhhhhh…” I grunted. Zoe stepped out from behind me and wagged a finger at Zoe. “Is this some kind of sick joke?” “Uhhhhhh…” Zoe paid Zoe no ...

  • Isolate (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 127)

    Zowie grabbed some sort of iPad-like device and apparently told it to get us some Cokes, because a few seconds later a brief tone sounded in the back of the room and she got up to get us some. “So what do we do now?” I asked. “Sit and...

  • ཁྱེད་ཪང་བདེ་པོ་ཡིན་པས། (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 128)

    In some areas of the world there are reports of people living over a century—in some cases, well over that. You get this stuff from, say, the Caucasus or South America. I’ve seen it explained as people tacking on estimated life-experience or as...

  • Mind the Adage (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 129)

    Al often comes across like a robot, but every once in a while he’ll do something that reminds you that he is actually a human being. Like earlier, how I’d mentioned he’d actually offered us his opinion on something. This time he was p...

  • Not So Routine (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 130)

    Tsering and I passed a lot of time lying on the couches, relating the stories of our lives to each other. Turns out I actually had a few albums he’d produced; they were among the few musical commonalities that Zoe and I had shared. I mention the ...

  • Grasping at Straws (Superhero Black Hole, Pt. 134)

    Zowie and the others had been discussing our surely-impending doom for a couple minutes now, but I was paying them no mind. Despite all the guns and other weaponry I now carried on my person, the one thing that reassured me more than anything else was ...

  • Fire in the Hole (Superhero Black Hole, part 137)

    We attached the explosives to the four corners of the Grid window with some clay-like bluish-grey putty. Al had upended the couch; using it and the cushions we made a sort of a pillow-fort—very reassuring, I know. He started to explain how it was act...
