Impenetrable

I watched my father hack at it with his knife, which bounced off without leaving a mark. The look of horror on my mother’s face reflected the emotions that I felt. With a curse my father admitted the truth to himself; there was no way to pierce the outer carapace, it was over. Backing away slowly, d...

On CSPAN

CSPAN showed the zombies streaming onto the Senate floor unnoticed by all of the Senators. It was only when the Senator from Florida was pulled down from behind did the idea dawn that something out of the ordinary was going on. One by one, they fell before the zombies like sandcastles before the inc...

For the good of the galaxy

All it took was depositing a half dozen of the leathery eggs sacks in the open. The locals are curious and will investigate. By the time they knew something was wrong they'd be impregnated and the xenomorph's life cycle would be well on its way. The without technology the primitives would be overwhe...

Childhood's End

News of the murder ended my childhood. The conviction was all based upon circumstantial evidence, but it didn't matter. The crime was so horrendous someone would have to pay. After all, killing the victim was bad enough, but cooking and devouring him was crossing the line. In their deliberations the...

Honor bound

In a voice tainted with horror the professor asked, “Why did he leave us alive?” After looking into his haggard face and composing my thought's for a few moments I replied, “It's really rather simple, our incompetence released him from the prison that had held him for millennium.” The professor bris...

Staff Reduction

It was a tragedy, fourteen people killed by a disgruntled former coworker who shot himself when the police arrived. Fourteen families mourning. Fourteen families a little bit smaller. Twenty-eight life insurance policies paying death benefits, fourteen for the families and fourteen for the company. ...

Invasion

If not a fight, I expected some kind of resistance, but no. With the exception of the aliens repeating our message, you wouldn't even think they were receiving it. It's almost as if the retched aliens were mentally defective, they go about their business as if we weren't here. I long for the old day...

Tuesday, January eighth

It's Tuesday, January eighth and I'm sitting around waiting like everyone else. It's pushing three weeks and my number still hasn't been called. Talk about bureaucracy! You'd think that they'd have planed ahead, gotten more staff or something, but, no. It must be the damn bean counters. I know the t...

The Were

Waking up naked on the back porch, the coppery taste of blood filling my mouth, told me that last night was a full moon. You'd think that after three years I'd have grown used to the changes came with the full moon. After shaving, showering, brushing my teeth and coffee I feel human enough to stumbl...

Not quite the Apocalypse

We were caught in the middle of the street, the four horsemen bore down upon us. Letting go of my hand grandma seemed confused, rummaging through her purse instead of trying to flee. After a moment grandma found what she was looking for. Leveling her Glock, grandma dropped the black horse's rider, t...

The Device

The device emitted an acrid odor which betrayed it's small size. A thin pseudopod of blue-gray smoke questing for the ceiling was the only indication of the device's malevolent nature, it's dark desire to thwart my every action. When I went to Miskatonic University in Arkham Massachusetts, one of th...

Re: Makes Us Dumber

This popped into my head when I saw that Nicholas Carr wrote a book. The guy is clueless.

Actually, it's pronounced why-chow-ski, I think it translates to horse thief.

The speaker rose before the audience and after a brief applause he began; “As a people we have a rich oral tradition stretching back generations. What these outsiders propose, however, will belittle that tradition.” Clearing his throat he continued; “As good as they claim their new method of communi...

I love my new quantum modem! If you haven't heard about it, it's a totally secure, untraceable and fast internet connection. Don't ask me how the bloody thing works, all I know is that I can satisfy the entertainment monkey on my back, while keeping the MPAA off my back as well. In the last week I'v...
