There are a host of films where something didn't totally click; the stars were too old for their parts, it's the sixth damn sequel, the villain(ness) had more zest than the erstwhile hero/heroine, Racism! Sitting around in one happily organic smog and malt liquored den in the late 2oth Century, several of us had opinions on what would have made the flicks we had seen Right. It was easy. Tarzan getting his ass whupped by an angry tribesman. Buckwheat pulling Dora and kicking off in…Continue

"What are you trying to do?" the creature asked peevishly. "Wake the dead? We're already awake and we're very, very angry with you!" She narrowed her eyes. "You've allied yourself with a terrible evil. You should be ashamed!"
So reads a bit of dialog in Valjeanne Jeffers' Immortal II: The Time of Legend. You can't beat writing and an attitude like that!This is an incredibly complex and well thought out novel. It's a fast and furious read, too. Werewolves…Continue
It depends on how you ask the question, I never learned to draw people. I have a buried desire but no skills.
You take a photo of a person, you steal a part of their soul, I kind of believe that. You can read the imprint of light captured by the camera, it does not lie. What did you capture, just an image or a part of that person, the light that is/was that person.
It is so compelling to draw faces, bodies in poses. The artist trying to put a soul into a…Continue

Why don’t you like science fiction? Is it because you think only Geeks enjoy science fiction. Or is it because you think it will turn you into a Nerd. Or is it simply because you think it is not cool and only the lonely, social outcasts follow science fiction. It is a common misconception that people who like science fiction are Geeks or Nerds.
This is not so. Science fiction is a misunderstood genre. Science Fiction is a complicated genre made up of many genres that tell love…Continue

a drabbler is a story with exactly 100 words here is my first go at it hope enjoy. leave comments.
It was just a handshake, that’s it. But it turns out that’s how Glarcarians reproduce. Galactic Space Exploration Incorporated`s mission specialist didn’t bother telling us that though. So as soon as I jump of the ship on Glarcon, the first thing I see when I jump off the ship is a Glarcarian female with an out stretched hand, and you can guess what I did next, yep…Continue
I guess I admire all the cosmic beings cooked up in the pages of comic books and such, but what rattles my cage is the kind of science fiction where technology crosses over. Technology is always an extension to man's natural talents and abilities. What happened to me is I dream and struggle to get my art in print, even print in a larger size or context. I get a wide format printer and my perception of things changes. In sci-fi I think of that movie 'Contact' where the woman has an other…Continue
Jack Dempsey was the last of the great actors of 2026. His dashing smile and trademark Kung Fu made him the action hero other actors wanted to be for more than a decade. His star as an action hero finally lost his luster in the last series of movies he made, Planet Raiders III: The Unforsaken. The movie, while grossing well barely covered the production costs and the injuries incurred by Jack's…Continue
While doing some research on the Marine Corps for an old space opera of mine I hope to rewrite one day soon, I discovered this fascinating piece of history.

“The Axis Mundi—or naval of the world, as it is sometimes referred to as—has been a concept stretching across many religions as the world center.” Jabari starts out as he takes the lead. “This bridge connects the Earth to the Heavens, or more accurately, the physical world in which you all dwell, to the many other worlds that reside in the realm of spirits. While the Axis Mundi is indeed a real place, it…Continue
