To be continued - elsewhere...

Learning for me - extremely long stories don't do well here since over time my audience starts shrinking... so I'm going to take this story off the site and redo it elsewhere. Just leaving the first three episodes on as a reminder of the beginnings... I'm going to take a break and come back with... Sign in to see full entry.

Indistinguishable from magic (III)

The little Chinese restaurant was noisy - the air was filled with the clatter of plates and dishes rocking on top of the dim sum cart with one crooked wheel. People were talking - mostly in Cantonese but there was a sprinkling of other dialects and English. Our table was no different - there was... Sign in to see full entry.

Indistinguishable from Magic (II)

I change out of my wet clothes backstage. In the words of Billy Joel, 'its a pretty good crowd for a Saturday, and the manager gives me a smile...' - doing shows these days involves a huge cast and they're all waiting for me so we can go have supper together. There's a little place in Chinatown... Sign in to see full entry.

Indistinguishable from magic(I)

The lights are dim. The audience is hushed, expectant - like all audiences in all magic shows anywhere in the world they love death defying stunts partly because there is always the chance that they might be the group that sees an accident... you could hear a pin drop in this vast auditorium.

Pit Stop (VIth and closing episode)

The mood on the ship was somber. Captain Dreifus had retreated into his cabin to mull over the findings of the search parties. His parting orders had been to continue to comb the planet for any more settlements – but he had no serious hopes of finding any. Clearly, the tribe had been ambushed at the...

Pit Stop (V)

“Mother Hen to Chick One - Spark, this is Dreifus.” “Captain, go ahead sir.” “There’s something strange going on – how come you only found the one family group? Where’s the rest of the tribe?” “I think the family probably got separated from the tribe at some point and hasn’t found them again, sir.... Sign in to see full entry.

Pit Stop (IV)

“Lieutenant Brogus, your initial reconnaissance report please?” “Initial tests show conditions that are hospitable to us sir. Atmospheric pressure 1.2 times standard at sea level. Gravity 0.93 standard. Oxygen levels slightly higher at 22%, but we can still breathe it. No toxic gases. It’s a cold... Sign in to see full entry.

Pit Stop (III)

“There’s nobody there, Captain. Our ships, the pirates, they’ve all gone.” “Are you sure, Flight – how come our ships were able to get out of there? I thought they were pretty badly damaged?” “Maybe the pirates managed to keep them from drive damage, sir – it looks like they intended to hijack them... Sign in to see full entry.

Pit Stop (II)

“What is happening outside Flight? Can we raise anyone else from the fleet?” asked Captain Dreifus. ‘Flight’ shook his head dolefully – “I think the pirates destroyed all our ships and escaped with the cargo, sir. I haven’t been able to raise anyone else.” “Can you take one of the interplanetary... Sign in to see full entry.

Pit Stop(I)

The ship staggered as it was struck. Then it staggered again as it wandered right into the path of a high energy beam. On the bridge, the crew tried frantically to rescue the situation. “Alarkin, talk to me – what’s the damage so far?” said Captain Dreifus. Even in this moment of crisis, he exuded...
