    Black Swimmer The note Janie had dreaded was in her mailbox one Tuesday afternoon three weeks into the semester. Be at the Job Assignment Office Blah Blah Tuesday (today) at three thirty pm sucks to be you ha ha. She knew better than to blow it off; she'd heard about suspensions and stuff...

    Comic Book Project I'm working on

    Lady L is Taken Lady L was sort of a minor mask, but a mask she was. Her cafe ended up being frequented by society ladies (great salad bar!) and various mask groupies. Every hour or so she made the rounds and schmoozed a bit--when not 'on the job' (nudge wink). The first floor was mostly...

    Comic Book Project I'm working on

    another concept; the city has mandated electric toilets so no one uses sewers. there is an extensive network of sewer/storm drain stuff under the city. one of the characters (Black Swimmer) stumbles into them and starts using and mapping them for something to do.

    Comedy Why not more Sci Fi Comedy books?

    never considered Stainless Steel Rat particularly comedic, though it was a bit light. my fave comic Sci-Fi is 'Space for Hire' by William Nolan (better known for Logan's Run) as much a parody of detective noirs as a sci-fi book. 'Sam Space' is of course a thinly disguised Sam Spade, and its...

    Sci-Fi Creativity Exercise: "The Sliver"

    I fear that any impact with an object that size/mass would break earth into pieces like a glass dropped on stone. perhaps a when-worlds-collide scenario in which it merely passes near enough to affect things. like Rendezvous with Rama, we'd send flights out for a close look. or maybe a smaller...

    Fantasy Your Dreams Are Alternate Realities?

    as I understand it REM happens when one is very close to waking, which suggests some of the brain is functioning at some level. presumably it's like a computer program that borrows material from existing files and re-organizes and adds new material; thus we imagine different people/places from...

    Fantasy Your Dreams Are Alternate Realities?

    I have had several dreams in which I've had the intense feelings that I've been in this dream/situation before and I'm picking up where I left off. thing is, they're all different. almost like I have a second life 'to be continued'. fascinating. I wish I could control my dreams more.

    Sci-Fi Put a Story to the Title

    If you're reading this then you know it worked. Just to be sure we poured liquid nitrogen into everything and sealed it off real good. The whatever on the other side didn't seem interested in coming our way and we didn't push it. We left a monument to Hill and Cuffy and the rest. Boz's...

    Sci-Fi Put a Story to the Title

    Mabry looked at the control board. "Boz pulled the plug." Huh? "Self destruct." "Oh yeah. I'd forgot we had one of those. Mabry sighed. "Hope it worked." "What do you mean, you hope it worked?" I was tired and wanted out. "I mean, hoping it destroyed all the nanos." One or more of the...

    Sci-Fi Put a Story to the Title

    Boz picked up the phone again. "Project to Shore...Project to Shore...yo Shore..." He gave me a look and hung up. "They must have got into our line." He thought for a moment. "Which means they'll be in here soon." I looked around for something to fight back with. We both did. "Fire...

    Sci-Fi Put a Story to the Title

    The Unwanted Super-Collider Discovery It didn't happen on my shift (not that that mattered any). I was in my rack trying to sleep off some of the stress when the alarm sounded. Muted at first, and I waited for it to stop. It didn't and I got out of bed, torqued. Turn the stupid alarm...

    Sci-Fi Describe Something SciFi

    Been reading some extreme-history texts here lately. Intrigued by the prospect that 1) there was a developed civilization on Earth thousands of years ago. They built the Sphinx, the Pyramids, the stone structures in MesoAmerica. 2) Their home was what is now Antarctica. Continental drift...
