Beyond the Dreaming

Each time is like the first time, even though each time is nothing like the first time. The world stretches and churns, then comes the falling out of the world into some place that has no name or description. It is a maelstrom of pressure, sound, colours and shapes tossing against the body as itContinue reading “Beyond the Dreaming”

Secret Services

Sometimes it gets like that. But perhaps this is not the time or the place to discuss such matters, especially when they could be watching. After all, we know they are out there, don’t we? Watching our every move, recording everything we say… or do. You think that thing you do with the watermelon andContinue reading “Secret Services”

Juggling Balls: Episode 13

Go to Episode 1   Chapter 10   Back at the house, Sam and Lisa unloaded the shopping from the car. Meanwhile, Martin slipped back into his room to see if the computer had come up with anything new. Nothing happened with the computer at all. Some sort of screen-saver was throwing random blocks ofContinue reading “Juggling Balls: Episode 13”

Juggling Balls: Episode 5

Go to Episode 1   Chapter 5   ‘Sorry,’ Mandy said as Martin tried to wipe the hot coffee from his jeans with a towel. ‘I just don’t know how that happened.’ ‘It’s all right,’ Martin said. ‘But I think I’ll have to go and change these trousers.’ Mandy knelt down in front of himContinue reading “Juggling Balls: Episode 5”

Juggling Balls: Episode 3

Go to Episode 1  Chapter 3   A few moments later, Martin was back in the hallway heading to the kitchen. A frantic banging on the front door stopped him in his tracks.

Juggling Balls: Episode 2

Go to Episode 1 Chapter 2   Juggling Balls? Martin hated mysteries. Especially minor niggling ones like this that would, no doubt, have some mildly disappointing revelation at the end of it all. He had expended a great deal of effort to get his life boring, predictable and humdrum. Having it disrupted by something thisContinue reading “Juggling Balls: Episode 2”

When the Future Comes

Spending too much time looking back runs the risk of tripping and falling into the future. Shella was not ready for the world to come to her out of the yet to come. She was too busy looking back over her shoulder, fearing the Northmen would come for her, riding out of her nightmares ofContinue reading “When the Future Comes”

The Sentinels

We remembered these skies. It took a long time to get back to them, but we remembered the blueness of their open vistas that spread out to the horizon and the clouds floating free on the winds and breezes. So different to where we’d been. Chorla took me by the hand and led me upContinue reading “The Sentinels”

At the World’s End

I stood on the edge of the world, looking down. There had been stories, of course, myths and legends over the centuries about what lay at the edge of the world. Now I knew none of them were true. Nothing is not much of an answer to all those thousands of years of speculation. TheContinue reading “At the World’s End”

A Politics-Free World

Obviously, it is not that obvious… at least not from the most usual angles. After all, discretion is guaranteed in the adverts, and if you can’t trust the advertising industry, whom can you trust? Certainly not politicians, that is obvious from the marketing of this product. After all, who amongst us hasn’t wished there wouldContinue reading “A Politics-Free World”
