Zilch, Zophiel, Zero… #atozchallenge

Zilch, is all’s I ever got. My wife, the harpy, continually nags me to take her places. I thought, “Peru is some place.” The Inca ruins were breathtaking. All I heard was, “The mountains are freezing. So I bought Marjorie a coat made from  mountain goat’s wool. Later that day, we climbed to Machu Picchu. […]

“P” Poison Has Its Uses #atozchallenge

I heard a banging on the steel grated door. “Umm huh. Yeah I’m coming. Hey Peely.” “Here this is for you.” The errand boy, who we were both so found of, handed me a box. Inside was a hat I had admired for months, The card underneath in her handwriting. “Peel, ya know what I hate […]

Missed by Leslie Moon #atozchallenge

It’s a messed up place.  “NewCago – the metropolis of the golden age.” Ha – It was a great city ’til something went wrong.  What were they were thinking when they reconstituted  Julius Caesar’s DNA. Wouldnt you expect –  senseless killings, women enslaved , children given as offerings?  I can still see it – blood on the streets. One […]

No Kidding #newcago #noir #flashfiction

As I was hanging on the endless ladder, I heard a sound “Sam you have had some interesting things cross your path but a goat?” Somehow it gave me the incentive to climb faster. There it was like a shoebox diorama of a distant past: a woman reading a book, a kid trotting about an […]

All Rung Up #flashfiction #noir #newcago

  I was through the guarded door. I realized it was more like a portal to… The bleeding woman was gone. Curious, the place seemed somewhat familiar. I was precariously perched on a ladder with no top and no bottom – just endless rungs. I could taste the sepia colored air – thick and dank […]

No Place For Clowns #flashfiction #Newcago #clowns

“You need to get out-of-town, Jelly. This latest turn is going to make NewCago unsafe for even clowns.” Jelly Bean and I had grown up together. He followed me into the dark corners of the city. He did most of my night-time surveillance. “But what about you, Sam?” “Lily is keeping me safe for now. […]
