Limb From Limb

  Limb From Limb John A. Frochio Damn it, why couldn’t he just will his limbs to grow faster?  Byron Anderson closed his eyes and concentrated. The distant snarling of war drones reminded Byron of his Father putting the chainsaw to the overlarge branches of those gnarly old trees in their backyard. The memory was pleasant, but didn’t help much in his current situation. Byron struggled to find distractions from the constant pain. The burnt, smoking ground strewn with the dead and dying and the pungent odors of scorched flesh offered no useful diversion.  The hard, uneven ground added...

Rules for Dogs

  Rules for Dogs Harold R. Thompson   Orwell the brown poodle stretched in the grass at the top of Tayo Hill, his tweed jacket hanging open, the early September sun warming his curly chest.

Happy Birthday

  Happy Birthday By Thomas J. Lauser   Jareth stepped off his motorcycle and drew both his handguns. A pair of Siren-22’s. Focused energy pistols gifted to only the best Reavers from the Order of Ten. The beast he had been trailing all day was near. He could feel it. Dead, decaying trees stretched for miles like soldiers in an emaciated, war-weary army. He remembered a time when nature did not look so dilapidated. Like it had been abandoned by every deity civilization ever created. But that was before mankind’s reckoning. Before the Arrogant Invitation. The macabre ritual that...
