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.

#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 […]

#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

“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 […]
