My Summer Vacation.

“Seal the leftovers in critter proof containers,” Dad told Suzy. She never had to be asked twice. Dad took them on the best camping trips. While other kids journeyed back to watch the first Moon landing or did predictable reports on the Stock Market crash, they had this all to themselves. Camping ou...

Breaking the Bank.

“What’s in it?” Glenella asked, picking up the pink ceramic container and shaking it. Her antennae buzzed with excitement, sensing the precious metals within. “I’ve seen these before,” Arkille replied, smug in his understanding of the history of this strange world. “Inhabitants used them to store tr...

Ablation Cascade

It started with a silver sphere, breaking the surly bonds. As cash followed curiosity, sentinels arrived, some kissing the exosphere and others destined for graveyard orbits. But as easily as the bipeds below learned how to fling precious metals about they stopped, turning away from the call above t...

The Tags That Bind.

All my life you’ve taunted me. When I was born, you were there in my crib, watching. You patiently waited until I could read, knowing all paths would lead back to you. You interrupted my wedding night and my chances to be unfettered by your incessant demands. I silently suffered, wondering at your w...

Dateless in Sol.

Captian Astounding always looked forward to this. There was nothing like a plunge straight through the heart of ole Sol to scorch the grime off after a super-battle. Miss Cardilly would be impressed, as always. Suddenly, his trajectory was halted, right as he punched through the tachocline and into ...

Kathy locked the door. Starting the coffee shop was worth it. At last, an audience for her “Pact with the Devil” stories.

When the Parties’ Over.

I had never seen a more terrifying sky. Once, the Earth had been a paradise for them, a place where they could throw birthday parties endlessly. But as supplies diminished, thousands departed our rocky world, headed for the more welcoming environs of the bloated gas giants of the outer solar system....

Frog Messiah.

“But I saw him, I did!” Aggie said, leaping up on his hind legs. “You tadpoles are high on chlorine!” His mother replied sternly. She had warned them off playing in the pond inside the gates. Not only did they have to cross the asphalt desert, but most never returned. But the gnats were thick and su...

Mass Transit

For millennia I have appeared, haunting men’s dreams. My excursions are brief, sullied by haste and the impertinence of the hour. A brief fortray in your year 1874 and again in 1882 caused mankind to tremble as only a rare jewel like myself can. In 2004 I made my brief presence known, but you had th...

Yeah, Adolf probably knew first hand whether time travel was possible or not, from the amount of visitors he received... never heard of the story mentioned, but Hitler-killing Time Travelers are right up there with Pact with the Devil stories when it comes to cliche themes.

The Final Totality.

…The moment came with nary a proclamation. Life had come and gone on its way, split cell upon cell, divided into sentience, fought its wars and gave its speeches, and then was gone in whisper. No one laid testimony to the spectacle that had so dazzled them through the ages. The Moon spun orbit after...

Thanks; I was sitting in O'Reilly's Automotive waiting for my Jeep when I wrote that particular Drabble, hence the inspiration.
