Dystopia - Part Four

Ted met her outside, figuring that the rising heat would keep her visit short. He had taken four semesters of psychology in college; it was easy for him to recognize that his new friend had a lot of personal issues. Allowing Mary to become comfortable in his home would guarantee a return visit, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - Part Three

Ted awoke to the persistent ringing of his cell phone. He struggled awake, glanced at his alarm clock and saw it was only 7:27 in the morning. He reached for the phone and looked to see who was calling him so early. The name 'Mary Collins' appeared on the screen. Just as he was about to answer it,... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - Part Two

"Will your car start now?" Ted wanted to get home as soon as he could. The odor emanating from his armpits was even offending him. The lady slowly hobbled her way to the driver's door and took a seat in the aging Ford Crown Victoria. He hadn't noticed that she seemed to limp a bit until he saw her... Sign in to see full entry.

Dystopia - The Opening Shot

Ted walked out of the restaurant into the humid Florida night. Although it was substantially cooler than it had been the last three weeks, it was still 84 degrees at nine-thirty. He had been in the Sunshine State for more than five years, but the humidity could still slap him in the face like a... Sign in to see full entry.

I had a late late night last night. I'm going to rest a bit, make a couple of calls and then begin to write my next story. Popular demand has told me they want the 'on the fly' dystopia story about my elderly friend. As the Romans said, "So let it be written, so let it be done." OR I will just say,...

Mindless Blather on Gaslighting

As is so often the case, an idea for a story came to me last night. Actually, I've toyed with this story for at least twenty years, but the actual plot has avoided me until last night. It is a dystopian story to be sure, but not necessarily untrue. I met this elderly woman back in 2008 while living... Sign in to see full entry.

Johnny Robot - Space Alien - Finale

Epilogue Just to be honest, while not always a word for word conversation, much of the dialog between the two main characters actually happened. Johnny is my seven-year-old grandson and has served as inspiration for several stories I have written. He is a very bright and articulate young man who... Sign in to see full entry.

Johnny Robot - Space Alien - Chapter Eight

The next morning, Grandpa was out walking Brutus in the backyard when he heard the neighbor man calling him. He whistled for the dog to follow him and headed to meet Mr. Allison.

Johnny Robot - Space Alien - Chapter Seven

Several times during the next week, Grandpa noticed that his grandson seemed to be exhausted. He knew that Johnny was in bed at his regular time every night and out of bed about the same time every morning. The boy looked drained and that concerned the old man. School was coming soon, and he was... Sign in to see full entry.

Johnny Robot - Space Alien - Chapter Six

Time went by fast that summer as time is prone to do. The little boy grew bigger and taller as each week went by, but every time they had the chance to talk, he still sat on his grandpa's lap. The two of them spent many hours in the early morning talking about the things they saw on the edge of the... Sign in to see full entry.
