Re: The Wreck of the Pax Harmonicus (Holiday Stories theme)

Nice. I totally expected it to go in a Twilight Zone "To Serve Man" direction, like "Now it's time to carve the Thanksgiving Turkish family."

Re: The Day After The Day After.

thanks v. all this talk about "meaning" has made me question my writing. to be honest, i just write about things that interest me, or something i think might make my wife or my friends laugh. i don't think i've ever intentionally written something that means anything beyond the words on the page. th...

Re: The Day After The Day After.

Wow, I didn't know any of that back story for Canticle. Haven't read it since college days, which ages me more than I like to think about. I'll have to see if I still have a copy somewhere. Thx for the info.

The Day After The Day After.

The day after the day after the world ended was a day like any other. Except two days earlier, the world had ended. Still, this didn't keep the survivors from hoping. Hoping for the real end to come this time. The hope, however, remained unspoken. For how does one admit to their fellow survivors tha...

Re: Demoted.

thanks. it could be a part of a bigger story, the constant one that's going on in my head, but nothing i've ever really fleshed out on paper. but now that you've asked, it's making me think it out past 100 words. basically, larry and his partner were bodyguards for a mob boss. so "the mighty" he's r...

Demoted.

“How the mighty have fallen,” thought Larry, wiping the blood and bone from his saw. He leaned against the wall, leaving a bloody handprint. He didn’t care. He and his partner had once headed the Family's security detail. Two weeks ago, however, at the height of the outbreak, they’d hesitated. Only ...

This One Goes to Twelve.

"I count ten ways outta here," he said. "There's the back door, the front window, the hall door, the trap door, that teleportation doohickey, the attic stairs, the back stairs, the front window, ship yourself in that man-sized FedEx box, or the front door." I didn't answer. "But to get through any o...

Surreally fun.

On a style note, is there a reason you didn't use quotation marks?

Day Tripper

He’d spent the past week working his way back to the city: traveling by day, hiding by night. The day still belonged to the living. The night, however, belonged to the plague. Earlier that afternoon, the outskirts of the city had finally come into view. Although he knew he shouldn’t approach this cl...

mercy from whom? (or is it who? perhaps i should pray for mercy from the grammar police.)

Re: Mindco

Good drabble. I would love to do this. I wouldn't mind someone coming for the ride either. Hopefully it would make us both appreciate what we had a hell of a lot more. It would cause us all to dispel the illusion that the grass is greener on the other side. Also I wonder what would happen if you we...
