Not Quick Enough

The computer screen dimmed and the keyboard lights turned off. Terry closed the laptop and walked away from his day job for the evening. The walk to the parking lot was quick, but never quick enough. After eight to ten hours a day putting together user manuals, Terry was always in a rush to get … Continue reading Not Quick Enough

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part Five

Part 4 A straight line between me and the building across the park does exist, but there are a hundred or so zombies along that line and I don’t like those odds.  I do like bagels and french fries. Not death by monsters. I know I should take a moment to enjoy the scenery, breathe … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part Five

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 4

Part 3 I kept coming back to a memory today. In Duckburg, we have a circus/carnival area that was established by our one clown. While I have never visited this circus/carnival because it was established by a clown, I have thrown bags of rocks into it. One because forget that clown, and two there aren’t … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 4

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 3

Part Two I cannot believe how big the trees are up here.  I’m walking down a dirt path surrounded by trunks so wide they would clog every tunnel ever built underground.  We could finally be rid of Cogston! No, no, that’s mean. They’re good people. They just...it’s hard to explain. Vines are creeping up and … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 3

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 2

Part One The surface is bright! The artificial sunlight underground prepared me for nothing! I was able to find shade, but now I blink and see bright discs. This is obnoxious. And dangerous. On the plus side, zombies talk all the time and loudly. I haven’t heard many, I assume this is due to the … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 2

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore

We don’t live on the surface anymore. Not for lack of trying. For a time, humanity was all about trying to retake the “world that was” from the hordes of undead zombie monster things. Whole armies were raised only to join the enemy in pretty short order. Not exactly a winning strategy. So people live … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore

From the Town Records of Shadow River

This week I'm going to try something both fun and arguably lazy!  All stories this week will be the same story (or story elements) as Flying Car, but using different formats and characters that I turn too often.  So here we go with more flying cars and gas cans! Zoning Review Township of Shadow River … Continue reading From the Town Records of Shadow River
