    Strand

    This Predictable race. This tiring absolute. Lurking, sniffing, joyfully disconnecting a past of wonders. As with most competitions, its identity suffers. Not unusual to remenisce about the suddenly not present, as we all agree what gives birth to them bastards. Clarity! Follow me! If...

    Saws

    There are birds that saw in pears. Yeah. Imagine. Either sawing with their wings like people? or with their beak, then graciously fly away. Just sawing in pears with a normal saw probably. But only in the middle. Tiny tiny tiny saws. They do that and you hear. You actually hear! The loud but...

    The Taxidermy of Eric Herschberg (Short Story)

    Hello everyone, this is a short story I have been working on for the past month. I understand it is a long read (just over 7000 words), so I completely get that people wouldn't want to read such a long 'short' story. I could have broke it up into chunks for people to read but I felt the story...

    Parable for a Prophet (Short Story)

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I have posted. This is the longest short story I have ever written, clocking in at just over 6,000 words. But before you click the back button, don't worry you won't have to suffer by reading it all at once. I have split it up into 'parts'. This is the first...

    Where Have All the Workers Gone? (Short Story)

    This is an experimental Short Story I wrote. It is meant to be open to interpretation as to what it means. Thank you for reading! There are kids in gas masks that skip with a crayon in their hand. They colour the leaves on the trees a bright yellow, the dead weeds a healthy green. It’s what all...

    A pale man

    This is a bit of surreal writing *** Sad demons bawl their bubbling pain out of the chemical fumes of hell. In the smoke grins the pale man, his teeth bared in laughter as the coals burn inside of him in nuclear reactor grind of stomach acid curdling into twinkling hot bubbles. The pale man...

    Church of the subterranean light

    The cigarette stub's static of orange and black curdled into ash in the darkness of the room and my half closed eyes. It was another night spent wight-like in grey forms, haunting late hours untill the light imprisons us in our future forms. Ihsan and I were sitting in our unlit room around a...

    When Flies Go Pigeon Shooting (Short Story)

    Hey guys! This is a surreal short story I wrote. I hope it's open to interpretation. Thank you for taking the time to read :-) All Mel could here when he opened his motel door was the hum of flies circling his room and the tap-tap as they collide into the window. He knew what to do in these...

    Crossroads Cafe by Rodney Sam[ Rough Draft] 2016

    Death came into a bar one night, sat at the counter and asked for a stiff drink. He laid his staff on the chair next to him and stared mindlessly into his glass. It was a tough night. The city was in anguish. Even though death had been doing his job for thousands of years with no problems...

    Prisons (Short Story)

    Hi guys, this is a piece of weird fiction I wrote which is supposed to be abstract and slightly surreal. And it does have a meaning but I wanted the reader to draw their own interpretation if they like (I know a lot of people don't like stories like that and am a where). Thank you for reading...

    Sunlight Through Water

    The first part of this story was in the Writers Workshop for a little bit, but I want to post the whole thing if I can (a little bit at a time). So this is where it starts. 8-[ “It’s not supposed to do that," said Serge. “Yeah, I know it’s not supposed to do that," said Hank. "If it was...
