They are after me. I knew I should not have done it, but for a woman, you end up doing just about anything. It was all supposed to be a wild lark, they were drunk and found themselves walking near that accursed facility. It was heavily guarded (or so I believed), every once in a while a drone would fly by just to make sure that everything was still in order. That is when she looked at me with her beautiful baby blues and told me how hot Continue reading “Stargates?”

Freedom?

He was finally free. It has been a long struggle, but at long last, he was free from that infernal place. No more listening to the constant chatter, the strange way the people would look at you. No more listening to constant sounds of lawnmowers. Finally hitting his 18th birthday, he is allowed to roam wherever he may desire.  He will not be held back anymore. He hopped in his car this morning, blasted the radio, and started to drive. He drove for hours until the gas monster needed to be fed. He stops at a small desolate gas station, the kind of gas station that is manned by a bored meth junkie, sitting out back wanking off to a playboy mag straight from the rack. He knows that in a few Continue reading “Freedom?”

In Service of Mammon

Mammon

By: Alberto Pupo

It is not every day that you stumble onto a hidden conspiracy. A plot to take us all into another realm of existence. The ritual is strange… The players are somewhat stranger… A group of silver headed oil executives each one of them with only a few years left to spare. They stand in a circle holding hands, kissing the idol of Mammon. I watch this Continue reading “In Service of Mammon”

Where am I? It is dark, and I cannot see a thing. For some reason, I had been on the run, but now I am trapped somewhere in the darkness, I only see fragments of things that happened. I see metallic ships firing down upon an alien landscape bringing a city to its knees. Was I the pilot? The gunner? Or a victim? Am I trapped underneath the rubble of where my house once stood? I scream for help, but nobody responds to me. I try to walk Continue reading “This is Life…”

The Horde

It is not every day that one loses their brain. It is not every day that one’s gray matter is taken abruptly from your skull. I have lost my brain… and now I look at the strange creature that is feasting upon it. The eyes are made of glass, and they are empty… soulless… Large razor sharp teeth are chomping away at my brain, and I stand there in shock and horror observing it all… before I awaken.. screaming, wailing.
