Hey!! What's the story?
Well hello 99Fiction!
I've not been here for a long time - too long a time - but I've made a few new resolutions recently and getting back to 99fiction has been among them.
So what's new? Well I've been buried away in my study working on the novel. And, slowly but surely, it has begun to emerge. What was once a hazy fantasy lurking like a shadowbeast in the back of my mind has now strode forward and taken on a much more recognisable form.
Working title is…Continue

Mrs. Stevens stopped at the empty four-way and surveyed left. Only left.
Aha! They were back!
Her heart skipped as she gunned into the turn. The tires squealed and the two boys glanced up, their eyes growing wide as her car roared down on them.
Both children leaped aside, narrowly escaping. But, thank God, their dog was caught mid-squat and couldn’t move. Stevens whooped as her car crunched over the animal greedily and dug furrows into her yard while…

“Oh, an American! How lucky!” Lilith said over the water cooler.
“Not lucky,” Francesca scowled. “He wanted to copulate, but, oddly, wouldn’t buy me dinner first. I thought that was kinda sweet, in an old-fashioned way, so I took him home. We started out splendidly, but then he started hitting and yelling at me.”
“Yeah! Then he just quit everything and I couldn’t interest him again. It was such a waste, too. He’d have made handsome babies.”…

Hey, Frank. Glad you've made it home. You forgot to check the backdoor and it was unlocked again (again, Frank). Anyway, I've tucked Bobby already. He’s quiet now. Had a spill in the bathroom and cleaned up. Just a warning, since I know you hate ammonia. Left your wife in the living room, but I won’t forget to replace the knife in the kitchen before I leave. 'Everything to its place,' right? Lastly, I hope this note is long enough. I really just want time to sneak up behind you.…Continue

I sit on the couch, but I don't feel it welcoming me. Photos everywhere of people I used to love in another lifetime. No photos of me, of course. Makes sense. Why look at the face of the man who left you every day?
It has been a year. More than a year actually. This is something I never did before. It shocked even me, guess I didn't know myself that well.
My lips form her name but no sound is made. I hope she will…Continue

Riki fumbled his seat belt loose and thudded to the ceiling. He could feel his heartbeat throbbing thickly in his head and half-ton limbs. Everything hurt. Commander Torres dropped down next to him, rebounding almost immediately.
Their vehicle wasn't as fortunate. Dead wires vined down around them and pooled from the dashboard like entrails. No air; no lights.
“You okay, Riki?” Torres asked. Riki forced himself up.
“I. . . I don’t know. I’m so heavy.…

“What did the Ouija board spell, Mrs. Tomblin?” the gypsy asked, “Could you decipher your husband’s message?” Mrs. Tomblin’s fragile frame tightened; her jaw clenched and she nodded jerkily.
“It’s just that. . . wow,” she swallowed at words clinging thick in her throat and wiped at her eyes. It had taken her a minute, but she’d got his message: “OMFG, Tam, srsly? Still not gon argue w u bout dat.”

Here's the intro to the latest thing I'm working on alongside the Ebon the Waste chronicles. Right now I've got two post-apocalyptic novellas done this year and an unrelated novel that's a mystery thriller and the first bit of this novella.
Uncle Jesse's Warbox is going to start off a new series so I'll have two running side by side. One will be distant future post-apocalyptic sci-fi and the other will be a supernatural comedy/horror series called Calefactory. This is the intro…

The empty box just sat there, waiting to be filled. He had tried giving it his fossil collection, his stamps, even his precious photos but none of them belonged there and he had taken them out again. Over the years he would catch sight of that box, still sitting there in the corner of the attic amongst the other boxes all filled with who-knew-what junk from years past. He had never been able to throw it out and for some reason neither had his…Continue
