The Rain in the Silence

This story originally appeared on my website at http://shallice.com/wordpress/misc-short-stories/the-rain-in-the-silence/.  What is below is the complete and unedited version-- The same as what appears on my personal site. I have a hard time calming my mind. My thoughts are always racing, and it makes it difficult to sleep and concentrate on work. So, I had an idea: Do nothing. Sit and wait for my thoughts to run their course. I got a pair of earplugs to help keep even small sounds from distracting me, like the sound of my air filter or the neighbor's dog barking. It worked quite well. I wasn't even doing anything like meditation. I was ju

Journal Entries of the Miskatonic Defector: The Secret Worshipers Author's note:  This is the last chapter of The Secret Worshipers.  At some point in the near future (maybe next Sunday) I'm going to go through the whole thing to edit it and put it on my personal website:  Shallice.com ---------------------------------------------------------------- Sunday, May 17, 2015 (Cont.) I woke up on the stool in the shed, leaning against the back wall, facing the door. I looked up and saw all eleven of the men in black standing in front of me, across the table. They were all identical in human form, looking at me through their sunglasses to hide t

The Secret Worshipers: Chapter 5

Journal Entries of the Miskatonic Defector: The Secret Worshipers Author's Note: I felt that it would be fair to warn the reader that this particular chapter contains a scene that's fairly gruesome and disturbing.  I generally try to avoid that, but, in this case, I felt that the story wouldn't make any sense if I did.  I guess that's sort of par for the course when you're writing Lovecraftian stories. (Congratulate me-- That's my first golf reference.) Even so, I wanted to warn anybody that's reading this-- If you don't like things that are gory or otherwise upsetting, you may not want to read this. Yes, I realize that the above disclaim

Journal Entries of the Miskatonic Defector: The Secret Worshipers -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Saturday, May 16, 2015 It's 6:00 p.m. right now. I spent most of the day exploring the town. Area-wise, there's not a whole lot to explore, but I did talk to several people. Most of the conversations simply mirrored the conversations that I had with Sylvia Marten. Everyone had the same disinterested attitude towards the disappearances. Everyone had had a recent history of blackouts. Everyone had seen the tall, thin man in their dreams and couldn't see its face. F

Journal Entries of the Miskatonic Defector: The Secret Worshipers ---------------------------------------------------------------- Saturday, May 16, 2015 It's almost 8:00 am right now, and I want to record what has happened so far this morning. When I woke up, the first thing I did was look at my laptop to see if the webcam had captured any footage. Each time the camera detected motion, it recorded movement, and there was, altogether, about 50 minutes of footage overnight. The camera was facing down a curved road that stopped abruptly at the end of town, and the road could be seen clearly in the streetlight. Most of the footage was of

The Secret Worshipers: Chapter 2 (Revised)

Journal Entries of the Miskatonic Defector: The Secret Worshipers Author's note: I am about to start work on Chapter 3, but I made some small revisions to chapter 2.  In terms of word count, the revisions are small, but they're fairly important to the story, so I thought I'd go ahead and submit a revised version rather than wait until the final compilation, like I usually do with revisions. Also, Sta.sh/DeviantArt doesn't handle copying/pasting indentations very well, so the interviews are not indented as they are in LibreOffice.  Apologies for that, but it should still be easy enough to read.  The final, complete version on my website shou

It is currently almost 10:30 at night. The first peculiar thing about this evening has been noticing the men in black suits. I noticed two before, and I think there are at least five now. I thought before that they were government agents of some kind, but they seem to be doing nothing to investigate the disappearances. They seem to linger around the t

Around three months ago, I received a visitor in my office at Miskatonic University, a man that introduced himself as Walter.

This is the first draft of the last chapter of Beyond the Finite.  Everything on DeviantArt is a first draft.  (I've already made some changes to them, in fact.)  I will go through and edit them to the best of my ability and upload them (as a single html file and a single pdf file) onto my webpage, www.shallice.com. Chapter 12 Final Chapter The fiery figure on Peter's right spoke to him. “Welcome, Peter Bowman,” it said. It spoke with a perfectly human voice, in his own language. “Please, enter.” Peter walked into the doorway and onto the marble bridge in front of him. Each step that he took on the bridge spann

Beyond the Finite: Chapter 11

First draft of Chapter 11.  With any luck, I might finish the story before Monday. Chapter 11 The transport reached the Jupiter station eighteen months after he left Mercury. It docked with the station by synchronizing its spin with the station's, then, slowly, the wheel on the end of the transport moving towards and locking into the corresponding wheel at the end of the station. Peter was greeted by a woman. “Dr. Bowman. I'm Dr. Kate Krakowski. It's a pleasure to finally meet you. Please, come with me.” Peter followed Dr. Krakowski as they made their way through the wheels of the station and hallways connecting the wheel
