  • The Wisps Part 1 (Mature)

    This is my favorite story, said to “reek of classic Poe.” Ever since the day of my birth, the wonders of the human heart has fascinated me to no end. The way it beats. How fluently it pumps gallons of that rich fluid through endless arter...

  • Jesus is coming, look busy....

    “He’s coming,” said the voice. “Who?” I asked. “Jesus is coming,” said the voice. I chuckled. I should look busy, then? I laughed. That bumper sticker is awesome. “He can’t come back until your father lets him,” said the voice. “Y...

  • It'll Only Take A Second

    “Check it out, an old shack,” J.T. said. “We don’t have time to check some creepy shack out, J.T.,” Kristen said. “We have a two hour hike back to camp and maybe an hour and a half of sunlight.” “Oh, come...

  • The screaming

  • The tomb of Nektah

    Professor Lebnoch finished chanting. Dust sparkled in the candle-lit tomb as it danced in the air, and the chill of the ancient stones was as far removed from the heat of the Egyptian desert as it could get. As the echoes of the chant died away, reverb...

  • the so-called lucky survivor's lament (Mature)

    It’s been five – no, wait. It’s been seven – Has it really been a week? Only a week? More than a week? You know what? Fuck it. It doesn’t matter. Time doesn’t mean anything, anymore. It’s not like I have to kno...

  • Suvivor's Lament (part deux)

    I’ve seen my fair share of shit since this thing started; we all have. So I don’t get why no one else fucking understands that there is no “getting through this”. And that smell! I bet when you watched all those zombie movies gr...

  • The Wheels: A Tale of Horror

    He sat contentedly in his place, glad for even a short respite from the nagging troubles of the day. The calm he felt here was surprising; indeed, the air was sweet with a new fragrance, the floors were freshly waxed, and he’d finally found a pla...

  • I don't have to run fast . . . (Mature)

    Run! They came out of nowhere and I just did what came natural. I could hear the screams of Billy behind me. It’s kinda sick but it really is just like the old joke “I don’t have to run fast, I just have to run faster than you”....

  • Who but I to look?

    The craters dictated the route he took. With their upheaved and unweathered edges, as he’d discovered when he was first dispatched here, shortcuts weren’t worth the risk of a depressurizing boot-tear. The guiding beep was loud in his ears, ...

  • Cate-part 2

    I looked back at Jared, trying to get him not to do it. My glare didn’t work. He threw the pencil at the back of Lucas’s head. I sighed I really have to work on this glaring thing I thought to myself. Lucas turned around, glaring at Jared. How does...

  • The Hunger

    Damn it’s dark. I get up off the ground and look around. All I remember is hearing an extremely loud noise, like an explosion. I whipped around to check it out, saw a huge green flash in the sky and I blacked out. Woke up here, must be hours late...

  • Something New

    There was something new down there… something we couldn’t explain, or express in the words we knew. “Something new” is also lacking in explanation. It was unrecognizable, undefined, inconceivable. It was completely, appallingly...

  • The Options

    Weeks passed and Jennifer’s condition declined. Mark took responsibility, since he had a record, until we could sort it all out. His arrest was quick. Sorting it out was the problem, though. Things in the basement are hard to comprehend, our opti...

  • weekend with the inlaws (Mature)

    It was at that point he realised that maybe he had gone too far. Sure, it was an accident – a terrible thing to have done, but in his mind there was no other option. He could’ve hidden it elsewhere, but at that time the kitchen fridge seeme...

  • A Nightmare on Elmer Fudd Street

    It was a dark and stormy night. Leorge Gucas sat in his office thinking about a new War Stars script as his pet Bungans burbled in their spacious aquarium: “Mesa, mesa, mesa!” While most would find the incessant burbling of Bungans incredib...

  • Walk A Mile

    Every night when he went to sleep, a new pair of shoes sat at the foot of his bed. The first shoes were an unassuming pair of weathered brown loafers with one tassle missing. His dreams that night were of his grandfather. Sitting on the porch and watch...

  • 10:13 AM, Found a Sprout in My Garden

    Cold grey air came wafting out the hole made by two great pines. A moment later the fog would get sucked back in, right into the deep of the wood, and then back out, slow and sickly. Drunk trees leaned out of the earth on either side of the hole, twist...

  • OF FIRES, SWORDS, AND CROSSES: Prologue

    There was something in the simplistic nature of hunter verses prey that delighted the shadows; their uniform goal to devour the light was evident in their hurried movements. Figures of indiscernible shape and unconstrained by the conventions of size ma...
