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 […]

Here we go with A to Z

Today begins a month long dance with the letters A to Z and the A to Z challenge. This is the fourth year I have done this challenge and each year has been a different rollercoaster ride. Last year, I did the challenge (weakly) after sustaining a fractured wrist that required surgery. Just before the […]

Blood in its wake #flashfiction #newcago #noir

I stood in a daze my mouth agape out of nowhere came a colorful bus travelling much too fast Its wheels barely touching the pavement. I heard a woman scream and then saw her emerge from the bus’ bloody wake Staggering, she strained toward the guarded doorway Never acknowledging my presence, she pled with the stoic, holographic […]

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. […]

The Message Behind the Dress #flashfiction #newcago

It had been a glorious, humm dinger  of a  day in NewCago. We celebrated  a holiday (the key players long forgotten) of a well-known street battle that had raged years ago. The gangs remembered  and agreed to keep the streets safe for one day. The parade-route litter of popcorn bags and soda cups was a […]

They were Pink #flashfiction #newcago #noir

They were pink,  moist and plump. Her eyes were violet and they sparked like firecrackers. ‘Oh Lily Baby…” “Stop you fool!” You can’t think about her; it will be your ruin and the city’s. *** It had to be here in her library. Lily had been the source keeper for OldCago. She had tried to […]

DoomCycle #fridayfictioneers #flashfiction #newcago

***** An unmanned vehicle being controlled by ??? “What the devil?” In one moonless night: The Sheriff had been pushed into CagoBend River on his evening constitutional. An unnamed legislator left a permanent bloody imprint (his only remains) in the Last Street Tunnel. It knows I have no power against it. “The stakes have been […]

Can’t Kill the Thirst #flash fiction #retro #fridayfictioneers

Another night banging around in the trashcans of Newcago,  I needed a drink.  A tall one and a Cheesesteak at Tony’s would do nicely. I noticed the dame – she was a looker. I couldn’t get a read on the guy beneath the brim. “Yeah, the regular,” I nodded. Sally and I go back to […]

"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
