The Spring Shock ‘Trigger Warning’

Everyone is being triggered these days. Trump’s tweets, bathroom laws, hoop earrings on white girls — it seems like people are looking for any excuse to grab their pearls, gasp in horror, and go running for the Safe Space. But meanwhile, people have lost sight of what is really shocking in life. From Poe to Lovecraft, from Hitchcock to King, many have mastered the art of finding the fears that lie just below our subconscious and using them to drive powerful narrative and visceral audience reactions. But the art is […]

Mortal Gods: “HVT”

Chapter 3: Adam returned to his quarters and stayed there until someone contacted him on the landline phone in his room. He soon was back in the series of hallways of the underground facility. This time his feet made a louder sound on the clean floor, with his boots pounding out a dull thud. He didn’t pass anyone on his way to his destination this time. He wore a black tactical uniform. The RMD had specifically designed it for him and while it bore a resemblance to a military battle […]

In America We Were Born Into Asymmetric Warfare &amp PSY/OPs

The cannons in the upper levels of the two blockhouses were useless. The Americans besieging Ft. Sackville at Vincennes had stationed themselves 100-150 yards out – too close for effective cannon fire and too far for the smooth-bore "Brown Bess" muskets the Redcoats and their allies used. Besides, opening the gun ports was hazardous to one’s health – those frontiersmen and their rifles could easily get off a clean head shot at that range. Unknown to the British, there were actually less Americans outside the fort than Redcoats and loyalist […]

No Greater Love

The German uniform tormented him like a sin for which he could not receive absolution. Even with all of the insignia torn off, it was still a symbol of the Wermacht. Working in the salt water — building the obstacles that were supposed to keep the Allied landing craft from hitting the beaches — caused his clothes to fall apart and all the guards had on hand were these old uniforms. They had belonged to some unfortunate fellows who were killed by the concussion of a 2,000-pound bomb that turned […]

Mortal Gods: “HVT”

Chapter 2: The room was a small waiting room and a nurse in a white, skirted uniform was standing behind the reception desk in anticipation of him. She was above-average in height for a woman. But the six-foot, five-inch tall Adam towered over her. "Mr. White. Please follow me," she said, almost making it through those five words without her voice breaking. She hurried out from behind the desk and then to a door inside the waiting room. She opened it and held it long enough for Adam to get […]
