The Warrior Hironosuke and the Princess of Hell P2

 The town’s reclusive villagers had come out in force to see the returning samurai, waiting in doorways and back alleys as he stumbled past. Hironosuke did not cut quite as impressive image the second time around; he had torn his jacket’s sleeves to shreds to make bandages for his numerous wounds, and he resorted to using his sheathed tachi as a walking stick to keep himself upright. The villagers, mostly elderly and women, watched silently without comment or offer of help. The first villager to respond to Hiro was the inn worker Suzume, who gasped in shock as Hiro fell through the inn’s entrance. Despite his weak protestat

The Scent of Blood in Dead Water

 People had walked these stone halls once, chanting or praying or participating in rituals lost to the mists of time. Who those people were had been washed away by time and 700 meters of water. All that remained were their monuments, and their magic. Catherine held at the corridor’s intersection, steadying herself the against the smooth wall with one hand and updating her digital map and flashlight combination with the other. The intersection branched out in four directions, the hallway to her left turning 90 degrees almost immediately, while the halls in front of her and to her right disappeared into blackness. A small pit had been b

Nearer Neverland

 “Lex!” Jean shouted while pounding on the apartment door. “I know you’re awake you lazy cunt!” It’s not that Jean had pressing business with Lex this morning, but he didn’t like hanging outside in that hallway too long. Lex had weird neighbors that Jean prefered to avoid; he could already smell the first layers of the roaming cat lady’s miasma. Luckily for Jean the door opened, revealing a sleepy-eyed Lex wearing a tight white undershirt and slim pants. His hair twisted into itself like a sea at storm. He could have just woke up, or he could be at the end of an all-weekender; it was hard to t

Denouement of the Hero

Denouement of the Hero

 Michael awoke to a gentle breeze, the harsh pain of the bullet still deep in his side. He knew he was back in the Nexus, by the twisting pillars that reached up into the infinite sky, but the warm grass under his back was new. The last time he had been brought here there were only sprouts pushing through the cracked earth. Even with the small pains of wounds that could not heal Michael felt relief. His body had been pushed beyond its limits, beyond its point of return, but it had been enough. The world around him was tenuous and hazy, like it would all disappear as soon as he closed his eyes. It took him a few moments before he even notice

What is happening in Ferguson right now is the most important story, for several meanings of that word, of 2014, and I have no idea how to say anything about it.

Some thoughts on popularity

The second most common writing advise I read is "Write for yourself." This concept seems bizarre to me; humanity is a social creature, and it is only with the most recent of technologies that it is even feasible to isolate oneself from others. If your writing is just for yourself then why even write it? As far as I'm concerned writing has to be made for someone else, to entertain or enlighten, and to be comprehended in their own way. With that in mind it is in an author's interest to be able to write to an audience, to both find an audience that is receptive, and to write what that audience is interested in. This past year I've been trying t

At a mid point between two locations

Obviously, I haven't posted anything here for awhile. Partially that's due to finally having a job that I can support myself with, and additionally that's because of an upcoming event that will test whether or not I actually can support myself. Anyways, in lieu of actual content, I whipped up a timeline of my stories, both finished and in-process, seeing as how they all take place in the same universe. Or, that's the idea, anyways. I'm sure I'll start screwing up my continuity once I put some real effort into all of this. Timeline of the Last World
