Equinox: Last Scion - Chapter 8

Chapter 8 - Welcome to Providence 

We, I mean me and the Hat, walked for what seemed like days. The desert gave way to a road. It was paved but no cars ever seemed to travel along it. We walked for three days and didn't see anything. I knew I should be getting hungry or thirsty, but…

Hyde - Chapter 2

I hate Hub City. I grew up here and I remember it being a better city then. But that is because I didn't know what I know now. My father was Vince Carlucci. I didn't know what he did for a living but we lived well and I never wanted for anything. I found out when I was a teenager, my father was a member of a criminal organization. But he always told me I could be anything I wanted and I wanted more…

Hyde - Chapter 1

If you commit a crime in Hub City, it's said the wind will carry your sin to him. Pray the police find you, before He does.

 

I was a policeman in another life. I can't say I was the best, but I certainly wasn't the worst. In Hub City, it was a brutal life, violent and often…

'Daemonblood' by Ben Counter

My Warhammer 40k experience is coming along nicely. I have become inured to the blood and gore and now have one favorite that stands out, 'Daemonblood' by Ben Counter. The female character is fighting a lost battle along with an Ultramarine, and his soul is overtaken in front of her by Parmenides, Prince of Nurgle, Plague God. As Castus' soul was being devoured, he was struggling to stay connected to his memories as an Ultramarine, and I really loved how the author described the difficulties…

My Warhammer 40k Experience

I gotta say, reading Warhammer 40k has, so far, been a gross, hacking, slashing, eviscerating experience. I have been reading it for two reasons. I need ideas for imagery and short story formats. 

 

It has actually been pretty helpful as far as the formats. I am learning a lot. However, reading nothing but stories riddled with phrases like "a casual flick of its bladed leg licked out and eviscerated Brother Mellius quicker than the eye could follow. His shorn halves collapsed…

FOUR BULLETS FOR DILLON Update

I hope you’ve been saving up your milk money for next month because that’s when FOUR BULLETS FOR DILLON will at last be available from Pulpwork Press.  The exact date will be announced soon.  But in the meantime, here’s something for you to look forward to.  A little something to sweeten the deal, so to speak.

 

First, some history: back in 2005, those of us who were writing for FRONTIER got the bright idea to produce a comic book: FRONTIER PUBLISHING PRESENTS.  And after a lot…

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

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.
