Horror, Mythology, Short Story

Time Zones and the Witching Hour.

This entry is part 5 of 25 in the series The Mythology of the Modern World

Today we've got a couple of sources for our myth -- one old and one new. One from last month, with old friend PlaidPhantom, who asks: Here's one, since I'm on vacation right now: what's the deal with time zones? The other is from back in 2007, when Super Prattle Droid asked: How do time… Continue reading Time Zones and the Witching Hour.

Fantasy, Horror, Incomplete, Short Story

From the Vault: Langue

Another fragment. Another incomplete story. Distinctive this time because A) I have absolutely no recollection of writing it (though it's clearly something I wrote) and B) I have absolutely no idea where I was going with it.

It's long -- novella length, around twelve thousand words. Normally, I'd break it into more than one part… Continue reading Antonio: The Calabite’s Song

Fantasy, Gossamer Reflections, Horror

Gossamer Reflections: Whisperdance

It's Storytelling day, and so here's a story for you, the kids at home. It's the first of my short Gossamer Reflections stories. The laws of Gossamer Commons are universal ones, and they're harsh. Here's a brief story on that theme. *** *** *** *** It was getting on towards dinnertime, and Caleb was pretty… Continue reading Gossamer Reflections: Whisperdance
