  • Cellophane pt. 1.2

  • 12 Word Novels

  • Deal for an Old Friend (Part One) (Mature)

  • Cellophane pt. 1.3

  • House Guest

    The cloud of smoke thins. For the first time, I see my captor. He is standing across the room, and his features are a blur. The hair is a mucky brown, the skin a pale olive tone: his outfit, an assortment of dark gray. I struggle against the rope that&...

  • Father, Father (Mature)

    I found out I had a half-brother. But only because I’d checked the obituary; he’d been shot in the back four times. When I looked him up I wanted to find out that he’d been a monster. Maybe a child abuser, a rapist, a drug-crazed miso...

    It felt good to be working again. A relief that, much like a hooker, kept me warm inside. Stopped in at Johnny Law’s to visit Captain Pike. Seeing his name on the door, I’m always torn between Star Trek jokes and fish jokes. He looked up. &...

  • Cracking Up

    Stand in the rain enough times staring at dead bodies and you might crack up like I did. I remember the case I’d been working on that day. It was a stranger abduction. A young boy, Dana Rose had been reported missing. Some students had seen him p...
