Project Super Nex – Chapter Twenty – Finally Home

“Morning, Maykal.”  Her voice slides through the darkness and into my ears. I feel her sit on the side of my bed seconds before my eyelids drag open. Mom looks so youthful and carefree in her cardigan and beige corduroys. Her smooth olive skin and chocolate ombré hair seem to glow in the gray light … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Twenty – Finally Home

Project Super Nex – Chapter Nineteen – Always

I was five when Mom told me about the lusiere’s role in Teönor mythology. Apparently, a group of demon gods known collectively as the Urogotha had a bothersome habit of scheming to overthrow Metura, ruler of the heavens and the mortal world.

Project Super Nex – Chapter Sixteen – Chaos and Death

It’s the 25th of Merto, ten past eight in the morning. The edges of a cumulus cloud burn white as it slips over one of the suns, while the second sun radiates razor blades that slice gashes through other approaching clouds. The grass and the trees and the lake of Gollinger Park flash and gleam … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Sixteen – Chaos and Death

Project Super Nex – Chapter Fourteen – Homesick

I barrel down the stairs from the steeple, bolt through the dining area, through the entrance vestibule and past the kissnut queen with its spiky branches looming over me. The ashmelin double doors slam open before I can touch them and I jump back from the frenzied throngs of Vermusk piling in. I squeeze my … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Fourteen – Homesick

My 2 Cents on The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

What’s new, readers? Today is the first day of June, which means summer is on the horizon—and you know what, I couldn’t care less. Things have been so exasperating lately, not just because of the dimwits out there who see fit to dismiss the necessity of face masks, but also because of the police-inflicted murder … Continue reading My 2 Cents on The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
