Bones All the Way Down.

The miners worked at a hurried pace, drilling away at the bone layers. The walls of the shaft showed brilliantly the evolution of human and animal. Every deeper layer, the bones larger. They were 200 kilometrix deep with no sign of water, soil or anything but bones. If they didn’t strike useable org...

Time Mail 2

Doug’s phone chirped the arrival of a text from his editor. Shit! He forgot to mail her the manuscript! The text read, “received the script. Thanks.” With a loud crack, the door burst open. A man in sharp, black suit flicked a cigarette into the shrubs and stepped inside. The man seized Doug’s arm a...

Re: Legacy of the Robots

Yeah I wrote this with that world in my mind. Glad you enjoyed. I would love to hear it, if you do get some time. I know how tight time can get sometimes.

@ ROU

Legacy of the Robots

I am the last robot. When all attempts at salvation failed, I spent my final years decoding the data requisite for robotic function. Binary proved too bulky, but quaternary… allowed for microscopic scale. I programmed the data into nanobots capable of self-replicating using only chemicals found natu...

Lost Voyagers

They came in rusted pill-shaped spaceship, propelled by manually cranking long mechanical flagella. They crashed into the Pacific off the coast of Oregon.

The Secret of Jenny's Baby

“Push!” urged Steve. Jenny screamed as the baby was delivered. It didn’t cry. In fact, as her heavy breathing subsided, Jenny noticed the complete, stunned silence. Then she heard the soft whirring of mechanical joints. “It’s a… a… robot…” said the doctor. The baby’s limbs flailed in slow, precise m...

Spring Worship

The Priestess approaches wearing the traditional garb of the spring worship. The khaki shorts and the pink tank top, her hands covered by the floral-print gloves. She stands over me in my charging station and speaks, “The House has a task for us.” I kneel before her and utter, “If it pleases the Hou...

An Eternity of Thursday

It has been Thursday for so long. I have survived off vending machine food and SoBe Lifewater. No one else seems to notice. They chat on their phones, clickity-clack on their computers, sip sludge coffee. My beard is so long now. It’s been Thursday for weeks, maybe months; there is no way to tell in...
