A Boy and his Dog, Chapter 10

When I woke up that morning I thought my life was normal, little did I expect that shortly I would have to deal with kidnappings, evil cults, assassination attempts, mutant rock stars, strange powers, mud men, and my own body doing a flip on me, and that doesn’t even touch on my dog!

Man, I should have just stayed in bed!

Authors Note: I couldn't sleep last night. Once again the nightmares and the fear of them got to me. I decided it was time to write it all out in an attempt to give myself some closure. This is the events of the past year and a half in my life and while there are some happy times this is far from a lighthearted tale. Please don't read if you're not prepared for it.

I dole out snippets of my invented past, each sounding less fraudulent than the one before.

If you tell a lie often enough...

Truth Or Consequences: Chapter 2

The sequel to 'Death By Misadventure'


By Touch the Light

The tall, strongly-built young man standing next to the capstan has already smiled in response to Niamh’s precocious body language.

“Not my type,” I maintain, but before I can embellish this statement I realise that I know who he is...

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 3 - Learning Curves

“All three results saw you as a very mature person who has characteristics
of both male and female people. The short time we already have had together
indicates you are indeed quite a capable and feeling person.”

“While becoming a young woman may not be the easiest journey;
I think it is one that well suits you.
Your mixture of thoughts, feelings and experiences
in growing into who you are is comforting to me
but no guarantee.”

Daughter of Mars Part 3

Daughter of Mars
Part 3

Captain Andrew Ross USAF, whose brain has been transplanted into the body of the beautiful red Martian princess, Vali Dar, has been attacked by an assassin but complications arise when she wants to learn to defend herself.

The story is written as pulp fiction and is an attempt to copy the writing style of the early twentieth century. As in most of Edgar Rice Burroughs stories, the heroes are strong, faithful, and valiant; the women are beautiful, virtuous, and adored; while the villains are cruel, cowardly,and despicably evil.

In the end good always triumphs over evil.
