Re: Against All Odds

Can you really call it suffering if it saves your bacon every time some hack with a stake decides to take you down? Houdini would still be alive today if he had it.

Re: Gnome Remodeling

thirded...thirderized...thirsted? Either way, I'd like to see this one as a short film, possibly in claymation a la Wallace and Gromit.

Epi-piphany

With as much of a flourish as typing on the keyboard will allow, I post my latest artistic endeavor. Nervously I await the responses. “This really looks horrible…” “Weakest. Effort. Ever.” “You might as well curl up and die.” I can feel the swelling in my throat, skin turning red, bronchial tubes cl...

Oh? oh. Oh! oh?...Oh!! It gets worse. Do love the ending though.

Letters from Europa

A roomful of scientists hold their breath as the probe punches through the thick ice crust, sets its anchors, and begins transmitting data. Downloaded images display an ocean teeming with alien life forms. Humanity rejoices. The force that rips the probe from the ice launches it back to Earth, along...

Re: The Spirit Guide

I do love me some Coelacanth. As an avid scuba diver, it's one of my greatest goals, and fears, to come face to hideous face with a living fossil like this some day. Nicely done.

My Pelt or Yours?

I revel in the softness of the fur, the supple skin sliding across my back as I lope through the moonless night, hunting my prey. The canine scent of the pelt’s previous owner lingers, hiding my all too human scent from the hungry animals that fill the forest around me. Elsewhere: Surrounded by prey...

Love a good diving story. 'Specially when it has delicious Irish booze at the end.

Re: Send in the Sun

Mimes, and clowns for that matter are definitely not human. Think about it. Outside of their acts, have you ever actually seen them eat or sleep? I'm just sayin'...

Re: The Man in the Corner of the Pub

What is is about straight razors that seems so much more ominous than a simply Bowie knife or ice pick? Makes my skin crawl. Nice drabble.

Re: Send in the Sun

Ahh...touche. Although I don't think letting you folks know I live in Colorado will garner any sympathy. Probably just a healthy dose of mockery.

Send in the Sun

Observe: A metropolitan intersection, on a hot summer day. The afternoon sun hammers down, driving pedestrians from the cool shelter of office buildings to cabs, subway tunnels, and the relief of air-conditioning. Observe: They are too busy to stop, even for a moment. Too busy to see the sweltering ...

One Giant Marble

“Sure is beautiful up here, isn’t it Schafer?” The Earth turned below us, as night quietly draped itself over the African continent, while the moon began a slow arc through the sky. I inhaled deeply, relishing the smell of machinery, and listened to the air hiss through my space suit’s recirculation...
