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.

#12 The Great Rocket Bike Agitation

“What do you mean?” The sensation of falling rushes through me. How in the hell could he not know where the waffles are from? It’s strange how calm he looks. Completely unfazed by what he has just said. He didn’t even blink. “What I mean is that nobody on this crew has ever seen a […]

#11 The Only Way To Eat Belgian Waffles

“Come on,” he said while starting to walk towards the closest building. “We are having Belgian waffles.” “I love waffles, but can we just get back to that whole giant hairy man thing for a second?” “That was Walt from the Recon Team. He is one of the Omah people from planet Nuk-Luk. Walt is […]

#10 I Think I Just Saw Bigfoot

Picture of a glowing forest path for #10 I Think I Just Saw Bigfoot

“Stay On The Path!” With that Zap-Zap races off into the woods. Stay on the path? I’ll start by trying to get across these rocks. My friend vertigo decides to allow this. The sounds and smells of this place are overwhelming. I can’t imagine the engineering that was involved in putting this humongous ecosystem in […]

#9 Tag, You’re It!

“Good Morning!” “GET YOUR COFFEE, HOT COFFEEEEE!” Zap-Zap shouted with all the gusto of a hot dog vendor on game day. Rapidly blinking lights speed my exit from the realm of dreams. “I need quiet coffee, Zap-Zap. How long have I been asleep?” There is still a giant spaceship outside the window. Check. Still, don’t […]

#8 Sorry About the Sensors

A massive space freighter for #8 Sorry About the Sensors

“Sorry about the sensors but I have no control over that and have no idea why it is happening. I can stand next to a computer and the computer will stop working. Regularly blow out light bulbs in my house. Do my best to avoid elevators now. I need to get out of this bed. […]

#7 Adrift in a Daydream of Memories

adrift in a daydream of memories

There are stars all around me. Drifting. A sea of galaxies in every direction. It is so quiet here. So beautiful. Weightless and adrift in a daydream of memories. My body feels like it’s been plugged into a giant electric socket. Waves of vibration roll over me. A pulsing that goes deep into the bones. […]

#6 Lost in Someplace Familiar

Is it time to wake up yet? She just stared at me for a moment. Why does she seem so familiar? Where could I have seen her before? And why is she so pale? “We had been scanning the wreckage for days with no signs of life when all the sudden the alarms started going […]

#5 Weirdest Second Chance Ever

“You are getting your color back which is good to see,” she said while shining that damn flashlight in my eyes again. “Do you have to do that? My head really hurts.” “What if I like doing it?” “Well then, I suppose that would be OK, wouldn’t want to suck the fun out of it […]

#4 What Now?

A glowing tunnel of spinning stars

I must have blacked out again because everyone is gone. The clean bill of health is lost in proofreading. It’s just me and the blinky lights. There is something about this room. A pulsing resonance you can feel. Is that what they meant by sync? Maybe they are tuning me like a radio. That would […]

#3 The Dreamer Awakens

A glowing tunnel of spinning stars

It’s a good thing they gave me something to bite down on because that last one was a doozy. I’ve got great news. They still use¬†defibrillators in the future.¬† I suppose that’s one way to wake up. Flashlight to the eyes. Thanks for that. Can I get up now? I’ve really got to piss. Hey […]
