Sleepers Unbound #6: A Pretty Jewel

Sarah Jewels’ diary August 3, 2016 Writer’s like to use the word façade. Especially new writers. It’s one of those pseudo-sophisticated words (like pseudo); complex and yet relatively common. Façade. Meaning concealment. Meaning fake. Meaning hardly discernible. Isn’t it ironic how so many of us freely choose a word like façade to impress a reader? […]

Sleepers Unbound #5: A Front Row Seat to the Show

    From: unknownsender to unknownrecipient Subject: RE: who’s getting restless…? 03 AUG 2016, 06:57 AM   The encryption certs should mask our correspondence, but make sure you’re wiping your email regardless. We can’t afford a leak. Every last step of the plan has to go accordingly. Speaking of which, they seem to be on […]

Sleepers Unbound #4: A Pastor, His Mother and the Hand of God

      Calvin Member #4 Posted August 02, 2016 10:01 PM   It took believing in miracles for me to believe in God—and it took witnessing a miracle for me to believe in them. I’ve been preaching the Word of God since my mother died and came back to life. It started as a […]

Endeavour’s Fall #4: Out Of The Tree

“Why should that apple always descend perpendicularly to the ground,”  thought he to him self. -W. Stukely   A scramble and scurry across the rooftop above Sam caught him by surprise. The apple tree shook and a few leaves and late blossoms fluttered to the ground. Sam gaped dumbly as Emma Dunbar dropped from the […]

Sleepers Unbound #3: Death Makes Believers of Us All

Prof. O Member #3 Posted August 02, 2016 12:05 AM Holy guac! I didn’t think anyone would ever post on here. I’ve been waiting since I got the email, checking hourly, I think. I went to his funeral. There were hundreds of us. All fans. Once the immediate family had left, we laid our favorite […]

Sleepers Unbound #2: Cigarettes and the Oklahoma Mega Millions

Lucy Member #2 Posted August 01, 2016 09:22 PM I watched a woman win 250K today. Her name’s Evelyn Baxter. She’s a tax professional and works downtown by the court house. I know because she charges me my return every season for her services. Most mornings before work I stop in at the corner station […]

Sleepers Unbound #1: Sometimes They Come To Eat

    From: unknownsender to me Subject: Miles Granger is not dead 29 JUL 2016, 7:40 PM   Dear Author, Sometimes they come as heroes; sometimes they come as thieves.

Anchors No More: #46 –Finale–: The Problem With Indecisions

Setting his pack down, Gary closed the door behind him. It was stuffy inside the small rounded chamber, he adjusted the wetsuit around his crotch while Holly entered the code and fine-tuned the mixture. Finishing the preparations, she turned to him, saw the questions in his eyes. She gave a slight smile, “It’s too late […]

Anchors No More # 45: A Little Warmer

The long months melted together, only mist in her mind as Holly made it through each day. She painted a little, on the days she was allowed into the activity room, often creating lazy abstracts in bright colors, some unconscious rejection of her reality so concrete and drab. It was hard for her. For months […]

Toxic #36: Never Bet Good Money on Bad Monsters

“Okay. What’s the main theme of ‘Romeo and Juliet’?” I doodled on the back on my notebook, more than ready for school to be over. The stupid clock hands refused to move, though. “Love. Could you have possibly asked an easier question?” Scott raised an eyebrow. “Putting love down on the test won’t get you […]

Anchors No More # 44: As the Smoke Clears

Holly looked into Gary’s eyes as the pandemonium grew around them. “Ten,” she simply said, “Count to ten.” A bullet tore the air between them and hit the machine. Gary flinched, looked into her eyes one last time, turned and entered the chamber. The door shut behind him and Holly knew he was gone. She […]

Toxic #35: No Wonder Pepsi Won the Cola Wars

I raced for the bathroom before either the vampires or my dad could see me. I had to calm down. Pretend I hadn’t heard anything. Too bad my reflection in the mirror was a worse sight than the graffiti-tagged stall doors. Anyone with half a brain would be able to tell something was wrong. I […]

Anchors No More #43: The Basic Ontological Paradox

Uncertainty overwhelmed Gary as the door to the Marshall Temporal Device shut behind him. He had never felt this before. Complete cognitive dissonance, only able to act on inertia, no confidence in his current capacity for reason or rationality. There was one thing. One solitary fact that he held onto in the midst of his […]

Toxic #34: Speed Eating and Embalming Don’t Mix

“Toxic Cinema, #170 – Why Speed Eating and Embalming Don’t Mix” I have officially been so grossed out by a movie that I couldn’t eat my Kit Kats while watching it. I never thought it would happen. You, my loyal readers, never thought it would happen. I got through “Saw” without blinking. Viewed “The Devil’s […]

Anchors No More # 42: A Measure of Satisfaction

From the moment he saw Daniel take a bullet in the gut, Restrepo knew they would not be getting out of the ARCC alive. To be fair, he had assumed as much from the very beginning, from the moment he cut a hole in the perimeter fence and crawled through it he had the feeling […]

Toxic #33: The Importance of Supportive Athletic Wear

  Here’s the thing: vampires have the same anatomy as humans. Which means things hurt them the same as humans. But they get over it. Fast. And then they get pissed. Glen was down for all of ten seconds. It gave me time to shove the marker back into my pocket and backpedal a few […]

Anchors No More # 41: Just Like This

Through the blurry haze of the smoke filled basement, Holly saw Daniel drop to his knees. She screamed and stepped towards him but behind her Gary shouted, “Holly.” She stopped, looking back to see him standing in front of the temporal device, the door open, his face twisted in exasperated fear. She could see nothing […]

Toxic #32: Sometimes An Old Dog Can Learn New Tricks

Kim was still laughing over her lame joke about my clothes when the bell over the door jingled. I slunk sideways, figuring it was a good time to slip away, but stopped two inches from the chest of her new customer. One of Rorbauch’s friends. Or at least I figured it was one of his […]

Anchors No More # 40: A Real Pleasure

Upstairs, Restrepo winced as bullets struck the wall around him. He took another step down, firing his rifle at a multitude of moving targets. “Shit,” he yelled, “we need help.” Mike stepped forward and shot at whatever he could see. Restrepo turned to Steven, “Tell Daniel we’re coming down and to get ready. We can’t […]
