Apocalypse Blog – Day 15

Oh, dear God, I hope someone is actually reading this. I’m dictating onto my phone and having it post live to the blog. There’s no radio coming in on any channel but my phone says it has a connection so I’m hoping this is going out. It’s 4 AM and the screaming outside escalated to […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 14

We had a blackout last night. As far as I could see, darkness, no streetlights, no house lights, nothing. Normally when this happens, it’s after a bad storm or high winds but it was as still as could be last night; maybe someone hit a telephone pole but it was really widespread. Again, nothing on […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 5

Vegas is one of the most exciting and active cities I’ve ever seen in my life—just not last night. My neighborhood is full of restaurants, grocery stores, and other necessary businesses so everything is open and life seems normal except for all the people with face masks. Las Vegas Boulevard just demonstrated how radically different […]

The Party Clown

“This is a great party, Betty,” Lou-Ann said, removing a colorful hat from her head. “Thanks,” Betty said. “Mary wanted a special sixth birthday so I really tried to make it a blow out.

She grasped her mother’s hand and placed it on her distended abdomen. Her mother’s bulging eyes widened as she felt the rapid movements beneath the skin. […]

The Outsiders

I want to do a little public world building in today’s post. I’m currently working on a new book set in the modern world. It’s a ‘world beneath the world’ concept with a hidden layer beneath our daily existence that we are protected from by our ignorance and the efforts of certain groups to protect […]

I, Shoggoth

#flashfiction  I joined the Army to defend my country. After the terror attacks I raced to my recruiter, signed the forms and then worked my way through boot camp to earn my way here: a godforsaken desert filled with rocks, sand and stinging bugs. What was I thinking? Sarge directed us to leapfrog down the […]

The Uncharted Island

#flashfiction #cthulhu Commander Hess staggered onto the beach with his handful of sailors. Less than half his men had escaped. He would be glad to put this godforsaken island behind them. The watch officer had spotted the island three days ago. Hess and Captain Van Hort had both scratched their heads in confusion, no island […]

Here’s my story: #flashfiction #picturefiction #Cthulhu #fanfiction #ThomasCovenant Lord Cthulhu’s Bane  Thomas Covenant shambled across his living room. His coffee table was covered with the remains of last night’s meal. His […]

Deep One Rising

#picturefiction #flashfiction The surf pounded in the distance as Jenna and Bill crested the hill. A low mist obscured the boundary between sky and Earth. The day was chilly but that  would ensure they were alone for a romantic walk on the beach. A shape, indistinct in the mist and spray, surfaced and began to move […]
