I woke up in space and have no idea how I got here. Follow along as madness ensues. Episodic sci-fi with a strong paranormal undercurrent.

Communication Breakdown Mercury Retrograde – Can You Hear Me Now?

Picture of Mercury for Communication Breakdown and The Mercury Retrograde - Can You Hear Me Now?

I saw a joke the other day about Mercury retrograde and communication breakdown. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really great at keeping track of that sort of thing. I’m more the weird neighbor you see standing in the yard all slack-jawed looking up at the sky at 4 am while wearing […]

#40 The Smell of Burnt Hair and the Apocalypse

Airbrush painting of fire-eyed tiki shaman for #40 The Smell of Burnt Hair and the Apocalypse

“H….E….Y…………….A….RE………Y…O…U……I..N……..TH….E…RE….?” It was a voice from someplace far away from where I am now. It’s so peaceful here. Time has stopped completely and yet it’s still too soon to leave. There is a quiet singing in the air that always comes from someplace just out of reach. It must be the angels, the mournful dead, […]

#39 The Space Between Spaces

A blue-eyed gray female face merged with nature for #39 The Space Between Spaces

I remember Anton was eating nachos. I can see it quite clearly. And Cole…he was pushing a button on the console of our spaceship and then there was a loud bang. How did I get here? What is this place? It looks like the most beautiful magic forest you could possibly imagine. Ancient old trees […]

#38 Who Unplugged the Gnar Hammer?

A skull with Earth for a body and muscular arms for #38 Who Unplugged the Gnar Hammer?

Thromotep never saw the flying saucer that streaked past the window of the small attack ship he was piloting. And he didn’t notice the blip on his sensors because he was busy thinking about making squishy sounds with one of his many wives in the slime pits back on his home planet. You see, Borvags […]

#37 It’s a Question of Where You Really Are

#37 Question of Where You Really Are - Mysterious old diner under sea of stars for

Norm sat nervously in the booth looking around at the odd collection of extremely strange people who had sat down since he’d ordered his breakfast. Terror was coursing through him but he was unable to move, frozen in place by his obligation to not run out on the nice girl who had taken his order. […]

#36 Head Like a Whole Antenna

Metal wireframe male head floating in the sky for #36 Head Like a Whole Antenna

A massive steel blast door descends over the front entrance of the Bank of Kremeth as we exit the building. There is a disturbing finality to the heavy thud of that door closing. No going back now. We’ve got to get back to the parking lot and the landing saucer as fast as we possibly […]

#35 Take Me to the Underwater Pleasure Domes

A blue woman covered in computer code for #35 Take Me to the Underwater Pleasure Domes

“La…Lan….Lana? Lan..Lan Lana Dan…druff? Lana banana….Lana…” “What has Zap-Zap been putting in your coffee?” asked Cole who had swiveled around in his flying saucer seat to give me the hairy eyeball treatment. “What? I think I just phased out for a minute.” “You were saying something that sounded like a name. Lana Dandruff? Why does […]

#34 Backward Forward

Lady in a time tunnel for #34 Backward Forward

Private Detective Lana Dandro was sitting in her shitty office in the middle of nowhere wondering if that squirrel was ever going to stop tapping on the roof. The brownie she ate earlier was coming on strong and she really wanted that squirrel to shut the fuck up. She had spent the whole night neck-deep […]

#33 Salad Bowl Bob and the Murder of Spatula City

Android face surrounded by code for #33 Curse of the Salad Bowl Spatulas

If I did abduct myself, this is probably what it would look like. We are currently dropping into Kremeth in the landing saucer after leaving the Diagonal22 in orbit. Two monsters are sitting across from me while Cole is flying this bird. It almost feels for a moment like Walt and Steve are some kind […]

#32 What Tomorrow Brings Came Today

Clocks in space for #32 What Tomorrow Brings Came Today

I told the whole story to Cole while we were down in the brain scanner having pecan waffles. Dr. Sophia sent me down for another brain scan as soon I told her about it, and before I found the cake frosting on my collar. We still don’t have an explanation for what happened to the […]
