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.

#22 A Curious Case of Garden Gnome Rescue

“HEY! Wake up! We’ve got to get back to the ship,” said a shadowy outline who was now shaking me. “Globba looba naa,” I reply before realizing that my mouth no longer worked correctly. Tiny daggers of light are attempting to pry off the top of my skull in an exquisite pain orgy that could […]

#21 Here Right Now and the Interstellar Dance Party

Space surfing over Kleptak43 for #21 Here Right Now and the Interstellar Dance Party

(Soundtrack available at bottom of post) There was a noticeable booming once we got through the airlock and began walking down the hallway. I can’t be sure but it sounds like we just crash-landed in a gigantic interstellar dance party. My suspicions were confirmed when the door slid open to reveal an almost retina-searing wall […]

#20 The Other Monsters in the Hallway

A couple more whooshing doors later and I receive another one of the great shocks of my life. Leaning up against the wall of the corridor is a giant owl man and the hairy man I saw on my first trip into the Biolab. They both turn to look at us in the most casual […]

#19 Astral Invader Behold My Magic Fork

Hindu sand mandala for #19 Astral Invader Behold My Magic Fork

It took a long time to fall back asleep after that but more strange visions were waiting for me in the darkened corners of my mind. In that fuzzy area between awake and asleep was a repository of images that streamed by endlessly as long as I didn’t try to focus on them. The shaman […]

#18 Strange Lights and Telemetry Spikes

Interdimensional door for #18 Strange Lights Telemetry Spikes

I awaken from my bizarre journey to the feeling of tiny claws digging into my chest. My new friend Shadow is staring at the window above my head. He looks like he’s seen a ghost because all his fur is standing on end. There is a static charge in the air and my hair is […]

#17 Forehead Door of the Glowing Red Orbs

At first, all I hear is a faint rolling static and there is the feeling of a subtle vibration in the middle of my forehead. The tone starts to wind up almost like a rocket ship taking off. Having been a meditator in my old life I try to just let go and float along […]

#16 Who Put the Pie In My Meditation Headset Prototype?

We left Jerry on the Bridge and stopped by the Med-Bay to pick up our new feline friend who has been diagnosed with a bronchial infection. Zap-Zap is now in charge of making sure that he gets his meds and Dr. Sophia said both of us should be feeling better in a few weeks. I […]

#15 On the Improbability of Fried Chicken Waffle Burritos

After another one of those odd elevator rides that involved no real sense of physical movement, there was a whooshing sound followed by loud shouts of profanity and an almost blinding number of blinky lights. No expense was spared on the windows in this thing. There is the enormity of space staring back at me […]

#14 The Trouble With Being Dead

“He looks like a cat but I couldn’t find anything similar in the DNA database. Very odd. We have anomalies falling out of the sky by an unknown mechanism. He appears to have some sort of infection and is extremely congested. Leave him with me for a little while and I’ll run some tests and […]

#13 A Gift from the Dark Unknown

Race You Back to the Elevator! Ensign Cole yelled at me and then rocketed out of sight. The rocket bike surged awake underneath me as I smashed the gas pedal. Chasing him down brought a welcome pause to the thoughts racing through my head. I kept my altitude for as long as possible and then […]
