All the Worlds (short fiction)

Miranda stood before the door. She didn’t knock but she thought about it. She’d been thinking about it for weeks. Now that she was here, she wasn’t sure she could. She definitely shouldn’t, but if she walked away now all those years toiling away would’ve been meaningless.

Now, here she was. Standing in front of a door. Lacking either the will to knock or walk away.

The door opened. Herself, or a version of herself, stood on the other side of the threshold.

“Oh, hello,” said Miranda2 of this alternate universe.

Miranda stammered. She must’ve made a mistake in the calculations somewhere.

The Unbeliever (short fiction)

It had started with vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and other creatures that had gone bump in the night. When the monsters of legend had stepped from the shadows and into the undeniable light of day, it was assumed that they’d always been there all along.

The cryptids were next. Nessie, bigfoot, chupacapbras, the Jersey Devil, among others. All those impossible creatures that shouldn’t have existed but somehow did. And maybe always had.

Except they hadn’t.

The Returned Dead (short fiction)

Wren & Hess

 

Some said a powerful wizard had cursed the city with his dying breath. Others, that it had unknowingly been built over the corpse of a death god buried deep within the earth. And others simply claimed there was something in the water. No one genuinely knew why, but there was no denying that every two years the moon would turn a deep emerald hue and the dead would return for unfinished business.

For a constable, it was one of the quieter nights. Most everyone stayed inside, and the dead were harmless for the most part. There was the occasional noise complaint now and then.

Text and Subtext (writing)

So I’ll watch a lot of bad movies (particularly successful ones) in hopes of understanding what makes them work. It’s easy to dismiss weak stories, but I believe there is something to be learned from them.

The latest bad movie I watched was The Single Moms Club. Or should that be Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club? I’m not terribly familiar with Perry’s work, which is apparent simply for its startling lack of robots and ninjas, but this movie isn’t really bad. It’s just not very good. It’s a pretty safe, by the numbers bit of simplistic comfort food for the most part.
