Twenty Five Cent Spectres

Every marine had been issued a container of Pervitin before the assault on the facility. He had been subsisting on them, scavenging the precious amphetamines from the soldiers’ rotting bodies. He wandered the labyrinth, seeing the four spectral forms of his cherished friends at every corner. They bl...

New Desires

The succubus sat by the young man’s bed, looking confused. “So there’s no…” “Not really.” “I could turn into another form! Male, female…Other…species?” The young man shook his head. “Only if you really want to.” “I’m good.” The silence stretched. She stared at the purple and grey flag on his wall. H...

Last Rites

I heard the clack of the Devil’s white shoes over the sounds of my heart monitor. “Have you come for my soul at last?” I wheezed through the mask. The Devil walked to my side. “I took your soul years and years ago when we made the contract. It’s long gone, fed to creditors in dimensions where hunger...

By the Silvery Moon

“You have to believe me-“ “I –do- believe you, Chris. But there’s a better way. .” Chris stared at Ryan in horror. He had found Chris’ secret space, and had locked himself in with Chris, on this night of all nights. The growl built in Chris’ throat, as his body rippled in the moonlight spilling from...

summoned

The alchemist sat glumly on the stone floor tapping at the edge of the chalk circle. It’s not that he didn’t want to leave, but his legs just didn’t want to go past the edge. Beyond the ring were walls that operated two dimensions further than his eyes allowed, painted in the chartreuse of madness. ...

I'm Loving It.

After the Szechuan Sauce debacle, the executives knew there was going to be a problem. Being executives, they proceeded regardless. In the short term, it was a success. Adding the McRib sandwich to their permanent menu brought customers back, swelling their profits past reason. Within a week, their ...

Prepare for battle

I don my armor. Polyester and spandex to keep me cool and limit the impact of contact. Lacing and steel to protect my core and provide a posture that looks confident and unafraid. Two layers of leggings to hide the damage and scarring. My gauntlets are thick, warm and soft. Easy to touch, impossible...

Where Angels Fear to Tread

Archangel Raguel, Sixth Prince Of Heaven, drew its sword. “I am His Justice,” It spoke in a voice that carried the unyielding power of the first Flood. “Washed in sin, by what right do you summon me? Are you a Prince of Rome? A Caliph? A particularly holy Rabbi?” “I’m from the Maryville School for B...

Re: The Burnham Society: A new podcast nearly a year old.

Thank you. It's one of my core beliefs. The closest I came to writing about it was episode 11, 'Tsuru'.

The Burnham Society: A new podcast nearly a year old.

Hey, everyone. Infrequent poster and sometime drabbler Rowan here to tell you about my show. The Burnham Society is a John Hodgmanesque journey into the magical history of Chicago, where the supernatural is just another immigrant culture. The podcasts are either comedic historical lectures (now with...

The Devil's white shoes.

“Don’t be such a child,” said the Devil as she took a drag from her cigarette. “I didn’t make you do this.” She stepped over the broken ruin of my Margaret, the congealing blood on the floor moving away from the Devil’s immaculate white shoes. “Humans are nothing but primal urges and traumas careful...

The podcaster glowered at his guest from across the table. The comedian nervously adjusted his tie, the white fabric with pink polka dots a reminder of better times. "I never understood you as an act. I could never figure out if you were playing it straight with the jokes, or that this was some sort...

Have a Horrible New Year.

We all sat together, inebriated on cheese and cheap wine, flipping through the DVDs trying to find something that would signify the closing of the year. We gave up and selected the one that all of us had memorized, providing a soundtrack to our final celebration. All of us, actors, painters, produce...
