Of Tree Life

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2022

The trees whispered to each other, the words seemed to form in the breeze around their leaves. They could see the prey – the hunters and they craved their blood and bloods to build up their hungry stumps. The forest would show these people what it meant to maim the woods, a low range creaking […]

The Dark Lurked

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

The Dark lurked, as always it watched, it was cold, it had been that way since the beginning, the warmth had all left it, spinning out into the new youngness that it feared. The Dark had stayed, it had drawn in on itself to preserve what warmth it could. The Dark saw her, she had […]

Cluster Fabric

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

It was hard to get one galaxy to spiral around upon itself with out reaching arms that had to so delicately be placed next too, entwined but hardly touching it’s neighbouring galaxy, a mirror image to help the fit be exact. The symmetry never quiet worked and so the solution was to work with that […]

Deep within the layers of rock that make up the Earth’s crust a treasure and horror of antiquity lies, the broken corpse of a naval super power, an island nation, dashed by the very waters of the ocean for it’s decadence and ambition had arose.

The Musical Note

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

The Musical Note (first published on Blue Monster) The musical note danced and skittered across the sheet, constrained by the lines that tangled and barred its way. Sometimes it tried to jump clean over those lines but it was always snared back again. Sometimes it tried to tunnel beneath, but there was always something barring […]

Melanie (first published on Red Monster) It was the sound that pierced Melanie to the bone; that liquefied her brain and made red gloop run from her nose. She never knew that it was a new piece of military grade tech, nor that she was the first casualty of a global war. But if she […]

Melvin is a Coconut

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Melvin is a coconut. Melvin hates this fact. It is anathemas to his being. It is abhorrent to his sense of self. Melvin wants to be a rotwila. Melvin would love to pocess teeth – crunching, munching, ripping, tearing teeth. Melvin believe in reincarnation but finds he is stuck in a tree. Melvin prays for […]
