Still Life in Five Time Zones

Still Life in Five Time Zones

  The funeral was almost a month ago. The family went their separate ways. Only the inertia unites them. Harold's bottle of whiskey hides on the bookshelf. The last few sips seem jaundiced, unwelcoming. Cheap stuff never has that glow, the warmth that deserves the light of day or log fires. It's the stuff of guilt and dark little repositories. It doesn't mature, only sharpens.  Margie's lipstick sits sweating in the hallway, radiators on full blast. A perfect crescent moon outlines the flat plane not dragged across ageing lips since she came home. The time for shades of "Harlot", "Bordeaux" and "Black Cherry" to be reflected in this particu

The Siren

There was a dead body on Sandie's back porch, and it was trying to get in. She wrung the coffee out of the front of her shirt, made damn sure that all of her doors and windows were locked, and called Mike. "Mike." "Yeah? Sandie? That you?" "You don't know anything about this, do you?" "About what?" "The zombie." "Come again?" "Mike, there's a zombie on my back porch. It's leaving smears on the glass door. Is it yours?" "I... Could you repeat that?" "Zombie, Mike. It's a dead body in a puddle of nasty, and it's leaving more nasty on my door. God, I can even smell it. This is one thorough job, man." She edged away from the door, keep

Shapeshifters and Gender-neutral Pronouns

Shapeshifters and Gender-neutral Pronouns

So, in my online noodlings I've discovered that there are actually some sex-neutral third-person pronouns and adjectives out there that are being touted as the proper agreed solution to saying he/she, him/her or himself/herself when referring to a person or character of unknown or undefined gender. I'm particularly interested in this since I've been identifying my Changeling character Eddie as female even though 'she' could actually be somewhat transgender - what with being a member of a species who don't distinguish between male and female since they can be either (it's an 'either/or' case of shifting between sexes rather than being both at

Films to not watch.

Films to not watch.

Unexpectedly ended up alone in the house for about 9 hours. Decided to watch "Moon". Great film with some really interesting ideas but a poor choice given the context. Was freaking out a little until some of my online peeps assured me there was other life out there. I can now add that to the list of films Siani must not watch alone: Resident Evil I Am Legend Dead Set Paranormal Activity 1-3 Moon
