Mental Health: Concerned, Yet Not

Well, it seems changing my secondary medication to Cymbalta is helping tremendously, which is fortunate considering I will have surgery on Wednesday. If it wasn't I would certainly be considerably more upset over this. I've never had significant surgery before, even though this is "minor" work being done. I am bothered by the prospect, but...

Soldiers of the Void: An Offer Refused

Mick barely felt Lanny’s weight bearing down on him.  The experiments created a fighting machine, but his skeletal frame weighed little.  Carrying him was not taxing, especially for his friend.   There was little difficulty slipping back into the hanger where the ship waited.  Mick noted debris scattered about.  Fragments of metal, strips of cloth, and...

Soldiers of the Void: Homecoming

Mick walked steadily towards the scanner, although he was just as reticent as the robed figure accompanying him.  So many years had passed.  Would their records have been archived?  Did they still exist at all?  So many had forgotten they existed and the two travelers had slipped into the realm of folktales and fiction.  Probably...

Prompted: “Are those jorts?”

He didn’t shout.  That would not be dignified.  Rather, the arrogant and decisive tone of voice was more socially acceptable.  The old man could inject enough ice into his voice to lower the temperature of the room. “You will marry her, wastrel, or there shall be no provisions for an inheritance.  Your mother, God rest...
