My response to District 419…I mean District 9. ;-)

Contrary to many, I did not like District 9...for many reasons. After some deliberation, I decided to post my reasons on my blog.

IN ABSENTIA AT ONYXCON

As most of you are aware, Joseph Wheeler III’s historic Onyxcon convention was held in Atlanta last weekend. Joseph invited me to attend, but that wasn’t possible. In my absence, I wrote a short speech and asked my good friend Milton Davis, who attended the convention, to deliver it for me. Milton was gracious enough to do so, and I thought I’d share the speech with BSFS. Here it is:



How many times have people gone someplace they’ve always wanted to go to, and sent postcards saying:… Continue

Mermaid (Flash Fiction)

Say, the only dream you ever had was blue. A cool, fierce brilliance that engulfs everything in the universe. All you know of your place in the monochromatic everything is webbed feet, jewel fingers and a certain unnameable longing. At night - there in the dark you reach upward and out, straining to grasp the hazy glow of a distant light in your palms.



You begin to drift faster and farther from the deep and dark. It’s warm near the surface but you don’t know what warmth… Continue

Ten Minute Freewrite

I have ten minutes left until lunch, and i feel like writing. Enjoy!



Kotan



Markel tossed and turned on his bedroll, awaking with a start every time a shattering blast of thunder ripped through the countryside surrounding his small cottage. Iridescent flashes of light sparked outside of his window, throwing splashes of color across the interior of his home. No one could sleep through a storm such as this, he thought. How could anyone? He imagined the entire willage out… Continue

Tales of Erede Princess Of Alms

“Well, well, look who’s here. You could have been anywhere else in the world, but you chose to be here with me. Fate has chosen me to be your guide, through a world of great chaos and equal beauty. So I welcome you to the World of Erede, and our story begins with one little Princess.”



It was a day like any other in the city of Alms. The trees whispered quietly amongst themselves, as the fairies danced with daisies in the field. Sounds of drunken dwarves echoed throughout the taverns.… Continue

Online short stories

I spent the past couple of days debating "with myself mostly' whether or not to post my stories online. I mean why the hell not right?...So needless to say tomorrow I will post the first in a series of short stories online. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I need to write them.

Musings?

As I was saying, I am currently realm-building. The task is to include elements of classical fantasy, but remain primarily sci-fi, specifically cyberpunk. There will be multiple planets/dimensions, and the general populace will be humans with enhancements (some without). The enhancements will include cybernetics, biological experiments, and even some mystical attainments. Again, I'm paring down the details, but the majority of the details are worked out. One main character has been confined for hundreds of years by his rival. Neither can die, and the one confined is found to be simply allowing the circumstance while gathering energy and awaiting certain events before acting.

My main distraction is the fact that I'm about to be released from prison this year. I'm at a work-release center now, and have limited access to the computer. Not to mention no spare time to get down and hash out more details. I have to obtain employment and whatnot while I'm here. Arg. Patience…

I would give an intricate, wordy introduction, but there are some hinderances. I am currently realm-building for a debut series, but life has a way of taking priority. One day, I will have the availability I need. My next one will be more detailed, rest assured.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

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.
