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 […]

Timber… #flashfiction #amwriting

It had been unseasonably wet in the state where it “never rains.” We had run out of chips so I did a “quick run” to the store.  I felt a rumble, threw the car into park and jumped out.  Instinctively I knew that I had to get out from under trees and power lines. “Earthquake” I […]

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 […]

No Dial Tone #flashfiction #newcago #noir

She had tried desperately to make the call for help. What sick bastard had cut the phone receiver off and placed a skull face on duct tape? I  found her hanging onto the cord.  She was all dolled up on her way to something special. I was alarmed by the time of day the murder […]

Gathering Bodies #noir #flashfiction #newcago

No one in NewCago remembered why the area was barred. One man went exploring with waders on. Before dawn, he pulled a body out of the aqueduct. The on-duty police were happy behind their bars  so no one observed the nightly doings of the man  in muddy brown. He called them “subjects.”  They were- Subjects […]

His Concertina #flashfiction #shortstory #music

She couldn’t believe it – his concertina. “I wonder if it can still play?” Her talented great-uncle had taught her to play a few simple songs. She wiped dust off playbills even an old lp still in its cardboard jacket laying atop the instrument. Lost in the magical moment, she sat in the dusty repository on […]

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
