  • Possible Somnambulism or Worse

  • Breakfast with a side of Rhino

    Foster sat down to a plate of Belgian waffles, expecting that day to proceed as any other, and then a rhinoceros flew through his window. There was no particular rhyme or reason, all three and a half tons of it simply barreled through Foster’s pictur...

    I walked across the dingy carpet of the lobby and down the ill-lighted hall. My coworkers passed by, each flashing a quick smile or giving a subtle wave. The pressure of deadlines left little time for conversation. Passing the break room, the smell of ...

  • Unspoken Threats

    The early morning air was cool which did nothing to lessen the sweat that ran down Theodore’s face and chest as he rhythmically shoveled mounds of coal into his cart. Such was the lot of a jouneyman glass blower. The clop of hooves, creak of plat...

  • From the Library of Failure (Branch 2, Part 1)

    I had another dream last night. I was standing on the back of a whale, riding it across an ocean that glowed like the night sky. I was on my way to a very important meeting, a meeting that would change everything. We were almost there when a girl stepp...

    Clarissa pushed away a tangled mound of red hair from her eyes, wrapping her robe more tightly around her body as she swayed toward the open french doors. Outside, the pebble patio looked out onto an awe-inspiring sunrise. She leaned in the doorway, sq...

  • Morning at the Boardwalk

    She stares across the lake but not at it; considers pathless, uncharted infinity. Her cup sweats in the humid morning air, drops falling unnoticed to the weathered wood. “You got anything lined up?” he repeats. She blinks, twice. “Nah...
