the heat of the day-melted birds flying
high above the stuttered earth fills the skies
their ravaged colors and songs collapse
fall to the ground in a screaming steamy rain… 10 more words

The Fold - Peter Clines

The more I think about this book the more I like it.  It’s clever, complicated, and funny.  Clines, with ’14,’ generated a campy following that loved a throw back to Scooby Doo and Lovecraftian Horror.   624 more words

A Slight Departure in Tone

No matter how much effort they put into appearances, the kids back then were always looking for love; those who were truly brave would steal away on starless summer nights to MacNeely’s mansion at the top of the hill, slink in through the side door, stand at the foot of the mighty Victorian staircase, and loudly call out Old Man MacNeely’s name exactly eleven times in the hopes that he would use his powers to grant your wish for romance, if he didn’t use them to beat the everliving snot out of you as he threatened to do to all the other misbehavin’ punks that repeatedly broke into his house. 443 more words
