#44 The Open Door to Something Greater

Sitting on the rock next to the river made him feel better. He hadn’t slept so well since the saucer crash. Every night for the last three nights he would just sit up in bed wide awake. Falling back asleep was almost impossible. There was a strange electric stirring in his solar plexus while he […]

#43 Broadcasts from a Random Hell Planet

Wire grid doorway for #43 Broadcasts from a Random Hell Planet

22 was traveling the interstate in a place the locals called Oceana. He had never heard of such a place but this was not a new experience for him. This job had started the same way every other job had started. He always woke up in a ring of mushrooms located deep in some forest […]

#42 The Great Emptiness That Swallowed Everything

Road sign pointing to lost and home for #42 The Great Emptiness That Swallowed Everything

He laid there in Med-Bay for a long time reading the anomalous entry in his allnet pad wondering who the hell this Sheriff Funk was and why he was getting his cosmic brain email. There was no sense in getting out of bed yet because the ship was still stuck in the great emptiness that […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

#9 Tag, You’re It!

A beautiful Japanese garden with a stone bridge through a stream for #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 […]

#5 Weirdest Second Chance Ever

A glowing tunnel of spinning stars

“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 […]
