The Fuck Pit

E-mail Print

After all these years, Mavis and Karlo Duncano are quite a team. The couple met at Coney Island. It was lust at first sight and love eventually entered the picture a very short time later. They are still together, still partners and the best of friends. Mutual Muses, that they are. Through the turbulence of the last fifty odd years, they still remain quite a unique and eccentric item. He the wacky inventor/writer, she the serious artist.

Life had never been the same since the Huns had taken over. On the 2nd of May 2017, the Huns had suddenly reappeared, as if waking from a deep slumber.

Waterhole

E-mail Print

He didn't mean to. It was wrong, just like the raw sewage on the tarmac in the city. But no one really cared about that anymore. No one could give a shit really. Dan sat on the kerb, hunched over his knees.

The fat man that was bleeding out on a hot summers day was probably thrice his age. He could accept the fact that people were dying. Everyone could relate. What he failed to accept was that he really meant it. This man stole his future. Years of revelry passed through this man’s gut without care or conscious.

The wind filled the sails and propelled the ship gracefully through the water.  With the land always visible to the starboard and the ocean to the port, the ship made its way up the coast.  The Chief Mate assigned Justin, Jake, and Elan, each, to a member of the crew who taught them as much and as quickly as they could.  Justin worked with the ships carpenter who taught him how to maintain the ship at sea and tend to injured crew.

There's Not Enough Room

E-mail Print

A few weeks ago, we intercepted the first message. I'm an astronomer, at the Gold-stone Space Communications Complex, essentially a radio telescope. Working here for nearly 6 years and finding nothing too exciting, you could only imagine the mayhem which broke loose when something fired back at our deep space messages. When we received the message, I was still busy in my office, busy with my salty Panzanella salad and a cold Latte Macchiato, when Jules, the head of our team as well as my wife burst through the door grinning widely like an 8 year old who stole a bar of chocolate.

Northern Willow Nightmare

E-mail Print

Rural Wisconsin consists of farmland, churches, cemeteries small towns and villages, you know the type of  place where everyone knows everyone. That is  the one thing Joel Hagen hated about living here. Sunfield is a town where rumors change by the minute. Secrets get distorted and overblown, truth becomes fiction and secrets get revealed.  The sad truth  is some secrets are better left buried.

The Devil Made Me Do It

E-mail Print

There he sat, I saw him from a distance, perfectly at ease while vaping on his Red Hot Chili Pepper flavored e-cigarette. The noticeable difference was it’s glowing red tip. Otherwise, Mr. Jones naturally blended into the crowd of Brooklyn millennials that filled this Micro-Brewery in trendy Williamsburg. Sauhok Shikkusu had selected this site in Brooklyn for our first meeting with him.
