Wish Me Well: Vacation Writing

Time Out It’s vacation time. Vacation writing time, possibly. This basically means I’m going to go from spending lots of time in one place to… lots of time in another. A few more days of work before I can make it happen, but it’s going to be a wild ride till I’m done. This will […]

Jak Grows Wings

                         “I would like to buy some wings. Some wings to plug into my side, feathers if you like, to grow out my hide.”             The shopkeeper’s eyes glowed red until Jak stepped back, back until he was at the door.

Last Rights (Part III of III)

Part I is here. Part II is here.             When the ship’s gone, all is dark. I look into the mirror. I’m a young man. Nearly a millennium old, but a young man. I’m also a relic. A tourist attraction.              I get into the casket. Many of the lights are defunct. The ones that work wink […]

Ro-Bot: A Short Story for Bots and other Human Beings

                         “Excuse me, but have you got a spot to plug in my dog?”             “No. Be on your way.” The broom handle chatted with the metal spindles at its end.
