  • Writer's Cramp

    She was in Hell, she was sure of it. She used to spend every day typing away. The music of his life played out in the tune of keyboard clicks. Typing and reading, listening and thinking. She had shunned life, far happier in her stories. Far too often t...

    The heat; I can’t stand the heat anymore. Why is everybody happy when spring comes and the snow melts? Those are signs that it will be too hot soon. Anyway, it’s too hot and I need to do something about it. Last year I tried to stay inside, but the...

  • Chernobyl

    There’s an old barn here. Hard to believe someone once dreamed of raising livestock in this place. Where once we might have long ago heard the lively braying of farm animals is now little more than a hollow shell of a building dedicated to the st...

  • Circle of Hell

  • Hell

    I wake up on the floor in a dark room, on the edge of hell. I hear the deep, rumbling voice of a man: “Adhevo.” Come. I look up and the source of the command is a glowing man, his skin radiating red light. He wears no clothing and his body ...

  • Hellhound

    As I tripped, the beast took advantage. With a sudden leap, it drove me into the ground like a pitchfork into manure. I took a sudden, asphalt filled breath as the wind was knocked out of me. Why do they keep following me home?! With a sigh, and an upw...

  • Do-over

    A smile played on the man’s face as he walked up to the large gates. It was only as he got nearer he noticed their state of disrepair. He tried to force the gates open but only succeeded in shaking a lot of dust loose and making a lot of noise, h...

  • The Butcher From Hell

    The man was running straight towards Amy. He was incredibly tall, somewhere around seven feet, and very muscular. She could see his teeth gritting as he continued to charge at her, a large butcher knife in his hand. Amy backed into the corner. She coul...

  • The Fires of Hades

    He stood there panting, watching, waiting. Every muscle in his body was alight with a teatherball yellow flame from effort. Blood slid down the blade and splashed like sand into a small pool. The demon watched him, searching him for weakness. The other...

  • This Is The World

    “We’re am I, father?” I ask, looking around at the place we have been transported to. “Is est locus of quicumque est , eram , quod totus vadum exsisto” This is the place of all that is, was, and all the shall be. “Bu...

  • Hell in a Handbasket (Mature)

    People are buried beneath the mound over which my little children tumble. Kings and queens, knights and priests, they all raise a contemptuous wail when my pretty ones cartwheel and roll down the side of the mound. All the while, the smile my children ...

    Today would be like all the rest. The real mailman would drop off the mail at 8 am and we would organize that with all of the files. The real mailman was a 60 year old male that anyone would want as their grandpa. He had a round belly, but it wasn̵...

  • Wait Until I See You Again (Mature)

    When I came home, the lights were off. That was strange because my husband always watched the football game at this time. I opened the front door. It wasn’t even locked. Now I was scared. My house was dark, the front door was unlocked, and nobody...

  • Prison

    My nose burned. The smell was horrid. I opened my eyes to a sight I was all to familiar with. A stone floor, scattered with filth, greeted me. Rats scampered across the area right beside my head. I took a breath and coughed, the air was terribly pollut...

  • And The Hammer Came Down

    The gun nearly slipped from my shaking fist. I had just killed two men tonight, and I wasn’t done. Not until the entire twisted family payed for what went on here. The old orphanage had seen better days, rain pissing down through the ceiling like...

  • The Path

    Death was easy. All it took was one well placed IED. I never felt a thing. Scratch one Marine. Three points for the bad guys. When I opened my eyes, the Humvee, my crew and the Iraqi desert were all gone. The temperature was 4o degrees cooler and thick...
