First Time

First Time

      I’m ready to be the first man to make love to an Atareen.  Xteela’s so exotic, with her blue skin and gold eyes.  I begin unwinding the layers of her alien clothing.       She hooks her fingernails into her smooth skin and starts pulling it off, revealing green flesh.      "What are you doing?" […]

Faces formed in the sand as the storm swirled around them.  They screamed words in tongues long dead, consuming his sanity, then his flesh. The lemon grew legs and eyestalks, and climbed up her arm. It whispered tart and sour lies in her ear till she cut it open to make lemonade. The netting shook […]

Martian Adventures: The Fish Tanks

Martian Adventures: The Fish Tanks

 Ronnie leaned out over the fish tank.  She’d brought Jim up onto the catwalks over the aquariums.  Mom would flip if she saw them up here, but Ronnie liked looking down at the water.  The algae tanks were okay, but the fish were the best.  Their silver scales flickered as they darted back and forth.  […]

Review of Julian Comstock: A Story of...

Review of Julian Comstock: A Story of 22nd Century America by Robert Charles Wilson

 This book’s greatest strength is its voice.  The narrator, Adam Hazzard, tells the reader the story of Julian Comstock.  The story is set in America in a future after the end of oil.  The president is a dictator whose only real check or balance is the Dominion, a controlling, intolerant Christian church whose power is […]

The End of Lost

The End of Lost

 Spoilers ahead!  If you’re a Lost fan but haven’t seen the finale, or if you’re planning on watching the whole series on DVD and don’t want to be spoiled, stop reading now.  Also, it might be best if you avoid the internet for a week or two.  Just sayin’.  Paul and I have been looking […]

The Best Laid Plans

The Best Laid Plans

 The sand trembled beneath Missy’s feet, and a purple worm the size of an elephant lunged out of the earth.  Missy laid a long-fingered hand on its dry skin.  "Welcome," she said.  It writhed under her touch.  She could feel its pain as she enslaved its mind.  "Join the others in the pen," she commanded.  […]

Disney Project: The Little Mermaid

Disney Project: The Little Mermaid

 This was my very favorite Disney movie as a kid.  The very first thing I ever wrote was a Little Mermaid fanfic when I was about six.  I think I still have it, somewhere.  The Little Mermaid, released in 1989, marks the opening of the Golden Age of Disney animation.   The movie opens with […]

Musings on a Hokey Religion

Musings on a Hokey Religion

 I’ve been reading a lot of Star Wars lately.  I have never gotten into the expanded universe before, so I am still very unfamiliar with lots of the world.  I’m most at home in the Old Republic era.  I have played the Knights of the Old Republic xbox game from Bioware through more than once.  […]

Meg handled the egg with oven mitts, but it felt pleasantly warm against Sue’s bare palms. She kissed the shell and felt her dragon stir. Heavy wings flapped overhead. Joe scrambled down a rope in the well. Flames roared, the rope burned, and he tumbled to the cold water below. The dragon sniffed the girl […]

Martian Adventures: Cafeteria Food

Martian Adventures: Cafeteria Food

 Jim didn’t like cafeterias.  He’d had bad experiences in cafeterias.  Of course, the adult scientists weren’t likely to dump chocolate milk on his lap or make fun of him for reading at recess, but he was still uneasy.  He stuck close to Ronnie as she got in line.  She was practically bouncing in excitement.  "It’s […]
