Sarah Caullings Private Journal 4

Why couldn’t it be contained? Why could we not control it? The purpose of the virus seemed so clear to me, yet the way it evolved from host to host made it so complex. We were such fools to think that we could control such an intense for of nature. I was such a fool to think that I could escape fates cruel joke. I was so selfish to allow things to get this far yet blame everyone else for my families fate.

I still remember the day the corpses were brought back from Japan. There was a… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 3

If any of my journals are being read, I imagine that I am either dead or under investigation by the United States government as well as many others. I cannot say that the leaving of these journals is any attempt to clear myself of any wrong doing in this specific incident. Rather these journals are my attempt to shed light on a matter that may very well cost the entire population of the world their lives. I am just as responsible if not more so than the virus for the deaths of so many people,… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 2

So much death. So many good innocent people now lost because of our misguided actions. This was never meant to cause such a tragedy, but it shall go down in history as the single most destructive event in the history of man. Maybe this is how Judgment Day was supposed to come. Maybe this is the will of God that we have acted out. Man against man, in a battle for supremacy; Darwin's survival of the fittest at its most extreme. No….. this is no biblical prophecy. We get no pass from the death… Continue

Day Eleven

Day Eleven (revised)

Told you I'd be back didn't I. Just in time to tell you that we have all officially lost our shit. I am not joking, playin around, or bullshitting in any way. We are all officially committable as of yesterday. How do I know this you might ask? Easy, cause I have never laughed so hard in mu friggin life. And I imagine that if you saw a couple of slow walking douches that were trying to eat your face off slipping on cooking oil you'd laugh… Continue

Day Ten

It's like all we are is flies waiting to get swatted down. The plan somewhat worked, but now we're down three more people. Will gave his life trying to help get the power back on, and April and Cujo have gone A.W.O.L on us. Things are a bit hectic right now so I'm gonna keep this short and sweet.

About two days back when the power went out on us we came up with a plan to get everything back on. We were still using the exercise bikes as back-ups while Freddie finalized his… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 1

It's finally happening and I can't stop it. I told them that this day was going to come, but they didn't listen. They've activated their total quarantine initiative but I fear that it is all too late. Though all the tests showed mixed results they went ahead with this….procedure that we shall all pay the final price for. This has cost me so much so far, that I can no longer hold it to myself; this has to get out so that someday someone may now the true story. My name is Sarah Caullings, Quality… Continue

That fucking Brian and his smart-ass ideas. Ok so the plan worked in getting the others here, but now the powers out. It was delayed a good bit, but I think that's because the shock wave from the blast shorted out a few wires in the line. There may be some shrapnel in the side of one of the boxes outside of here or something. I dunno, but whatever it has us in a world of shit right now.

This Freddie dude use to work for an electric company around here,… Continue

Day Eight

I love when thing go Boom! The plan that Brian came up with worked like a charm. We loaded the charger up with a ton of propane and aerosol cans and sent it into the abyss of walking douches out front. Cujo and Will popped a couple of rounds into her and that was it for at least a few of them. The other people that were in the rig came barreling through making speed bumps out of the anything else that was in there way and almost leveling the store as well. Mastaff, Freddie and Kizer are there… Continue

Day Seven

She's Dead. Theresa is gone. Regardless of all of the things that we did to keep this place safe, they got her and I couldn't save her. I swear I never wanted this to happen, not to any of us. I don't know how to feel not at all. I know I've said some things to her and about her that weren't great and were sometimes rude, but for it to end like this. Why?

After the video stronghold thing was set up everyone met to chill out and get there mind of things for a while. I… Continue

Day Six

Once again we're fucked. Ok so I know I'm not the smartest person in the world, but by no means in this place am I the dumbest. The Dude Brian I was talking about that Terry has now died for. Well he came up with this wonderful idea to make a "stronghold" IN THE FUCKING ELECTRONICS SECTION. I don't get it. What could I have done that was so bad that I wind up with these schmucks.

Anyway back to Terry. Not much longer after he was bitten he started to take ill. He turned… Continue

Max Caullings

Alright, where do I begin? Ummmmm… name is Max Caullings and I'm 16 year old. Some of my friends call me Mighty Max from some old cartoon, and I'm from South Saint Paul Minnesota. I'm an only child and there aren't many other kids around her to play or hangout with, so I usually wind up getting into something around the house that gets mom pissy. I guess I'm writing this because some odd things have been going on around town in the last two weeks or so I can't remember anymore. I started… Continue

Three days off and things are no better. Terry is sick as shit with no signs of getting better. I mean I kinda guess we all know what's happening, but no one wants to say anything. These….whatever they are, people I guess, attack and bite. They aren't or at least don't seem to have much of a cognitive reasoning like normal people. Not so much to call it mental retardation or some type of brain damage so much as they just react. They seem to move on basic instincts of move, eat, and continue.… Continue

Day One

THE FUCKING INTERNET. That's about all that's left now. Everything and most everyone is gone. And now I'm typing on the internet because that's all that's left everything that I held close. Wait, let me back up. My name is Matt Mills. I am, was, an employee of Pass and Seymour Legrand.

I just finished my first semester of school at Rowan Cabarrus Community College, with straight A's I might add, and have…fuck….had the best girl friend ever. I'm not sure exactly when it started, but I… Continue

Earth Squadron - Science Fiction Project Beginning

The dream of blacks making science fiction as a concept has been in the minds of many of us since we were all children watching science fiction movies and television shows such as Buck Rogers, Star Wars, Battle Star Galactic and Star Trek. Most of us have however, found that the characters that are ethnic, as a general rule most often have been relegated to secondary roles, sidekicks, stereotypes, sex objects, dope heads, not in the show at all or my favorite the first to die in the… Continue

The 1960s marked the birth of two of the comics industry’s first black superheroes: The Black Panther in 1966, and The Falcon in 1969. However, another African-American superhero came to life in 1969. He didn’t appear in the comics. He didn’t even have a name. He existed only in the lyrics of “I Can’t Get Next to You,” a hit song sung by the Temptations.

If “Temptations Man” were an actual superhero, he would have a… Continue

Ha Ha, I Got to see Iron Man before my daughter . . .

Over two hours and I really enjoyed it. Good rewrite of the Stark history . . . killer suit . . . I don't even know why Gweneth Paltrow did this movie . . . Terrance Howard is ready for his suit and his close-up . . . Jeff Bridges as a baldy - not bad! There were a few holes in the early storyline, but not so egregious as to ruin the motion picture experience.

Can't wait for Hancock!

One potentially valuable way to attack cancer cells is to zap them with low-intensity alternating current. This interferes with the flow of calcium and potassium ions in and out of the cells, a process so important that disrupting it ultimately kills them.

But there is a problem with this approach:…

Within 12 hours observatories had identified the source of the event GW170817 within the galaxy NGC 4993 – shown in this Hubble Space Telescope image – and located the associated radioactive emissions, or “kilonova”.

Intelligent Collectors encouraged!

Posted by Turtel Onli on January 2, 2019 at 7:32am 0 Comments

The fact that most indie Black Age publishers produce limited editions or small press runs insures the collector will likely have a rare item to treasure. Future speculative investors, auctions and collectors, once its time has come, will pay dividends to acquire items from this extended important era in this industry. Seeing "Black" as investment value or prestige is growing beyond the realm of that which comes from the mainstream. Most will be left saying...."I had those Black Age books...I didn't ever think much of them. Damn!"

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
