Phobe

Hey, back again with another story. This one is again Sci-Fi (which is no surprise) and is set in the same universe as last weeks. However, it is not a sequel, prequel, sidequel or anything like that. It is a self-contained story. Really, it’s less about the setting and more about relationships. Wow, it’s quiteContinue reading “Phobe”

Divergent

Hi! Happy 2022! Yeah, I know it’s not the first post of the year and that I already put up a post saying Happy New Year but it doesn’t hurt to say it more than once. Plus, this is the first post of the year where I introduce something. And to that ends I haveContinue reading “Divergent”

Without Mercies

I’ve got a much shorter story this week to finish out the year and back to Sci-Fi too. At roughly 6,200 words this is really short by my standards, but it was an idea that came to me and so I ran with it. I’m never sure how long something is going to be untilContinue reading “Without Mercies”

Days In Short Supply

Hey look a prequel! Yes this is indeed a prequel to last weeks story. Quite different in tone and composition, I think. Whereas last weeks story was action this is more about the events, truncated and told by someone who was not present. Just to recap though for those who read the story last week,Continue reading “Days In Short Supply”

Simarachi’s Shadow

Hey look a none Sci-Fi story. Who saw that coming? OK, jokes aside it’s funny this isn’t a Sci-Fi story considering that the main inspiration for this was the Sangheili from the Halo franchise. Then again the other inspiration, which if you’ve played it I’m sure you’ll be able to tell, is Ghost of Tsushima,Continue reading “Simarachi’s Shadow”

Aurion Reflex

OK, this is not the story I originally intended on writing, not at all. In fact what I started, twice over, was a Sci-Fi Western but I couldn’t make it work, sadly. It’s scrapped now. Not sure if I’ll ever revisit it. In its place I came up with this story, quite inexplicably. This IContinue reading “Aurion Reflex”

Pieces In Play

This week’s story is influenced by Halo. If you know the franchise you’ll probably be able to tell. If not don’t worry it isn’t important other than this is a military sci-fi story. It has a bit of a twist to it too. Not going to spoil it but this is a longer story atContinue reading “Pieces In Play”

Grass Is Greener

OK this one was a difficult one to write. Not because of concept or subject matter but because I just simply struggled with it. I had two false starts. First I got to about three thousand words, then I decided I didn’t like where it was going, deleted half of it, rewrote it back toContinue reading “Grass Is Greener”

Blue Eyes Blind

Story time is here again! I swear I’ve said that more than a dozen times but can only think of so many ways of introducing these posts. Anyway, here is another Sci-Fi story, it’s about 11,300 words, I think it’s more fast paced and I want to see if this goes down how you thinkContinue reading “Blue Eyes Blind”

Finality

Here we have the last in the series of six short stories. This was fun! I do like trying different things now and again. I hadn’t intended to write the last three parts of this series back to back but hey, what happens happens. Aside from that if you want to read everything from theContinue reading “Finality”
