The Sages



When I was a little boy

When men appeared as immortal giants

It was they whom I idolized

Their lives I wanted without knowing their plights

My dreams were blessed with ignorance

Now I am a young man only slightly wiser of the nature of life

I now know the truth of these men

I listen to the wisdom of these sages

They warn me of every misfortune I would come upon

I didn’t listen, because I know… Continue

REBIRTH OF SLICK Part 3

3rd in the installment. At this point it still flowed but I was running over on my word count.





Her hand was clamped tight over her mouth. She had been startled when the lid had hit the ground and could not help jumping. Now everything on the other side of the crates had gone quiet. They had heard her. Did they know where she was?

Then the heavy stomp of boots bounced echoes off of the walls around her. They stopped on the far side of the crate she was hiding behind. Their… Continue

Proving Intelligent Design

please critisize





“This has got to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever done” said Maricus. Isn’t there another way to figure this out?

“Well this is the most accurate way we have” said Dr. Langdon. “If you have a better way of figuring this out, I’d be glad to hear it.” Maricus sat quietly for a moment.

“No I don’t have a better way, but I was just wondering do we really need to know?” asked Maricus after a moment. Dr. Langdon pondered.

“Yes” he replied after a while.… Continue

REBIRTH OF SLICK p2

Again this is now part TWO of the 1st story I had written for the BSFS anthology but I thought the one I did submit was better.



REBIRTH OF SLICK part 2



“You had me bring three Rangers for ‘dis?” Wade kicked a crumpled soda can across the warehouse floor. He resisted an urge to chase after it and kick it again.

“She’s a murderer; very dangerous.” Wilson answered. They were both dressed in neat business suits, both Air Force blue. Wilson was walking along one long row… Continue

WINTER GHOST P 6

Footsteps in the storm



I let her legs go and push us up until I get my feet under me, but I don’t stand. Instead I crouch and peer off into the storm in the direction the shadow went. My eyes search but the snow won’t let me see. My ears listen but the wind is all I can hear.

It went… that way.

I turn, grab her legs and pull them out of the snow once again.

We’ll go this way.

I hop through the snow. We’ll cross the street… make to the houses… Continue

Last Night… in my Dream…

Last Night… in my Dream…



I must have fallen asleep on my couch because that’s where the dream begins. Something was wrong with the book I was trying to read because the words were all jumbled. Before it became frustrating enough to wake me there came a loud rumbling from outside my window and then a banging at my door.

But the banging was not to rouse me or to get me to open it. It was too strong, violent and the door shook on its hinges. Suddenly it burst open and in stomped… Continue

This is 1st part of the short story I WAS going to enter into the BSFS Anthology but the whole story got too long and another Idea sparked to me anyway.

Why write if not to publish? Me and my unfinished stories

I write everyday. I sit down and I bang out notes and thoughts and essays on social and political philosophy. When it comes to writing for my career, I work every day, with very few exceptions (some Saturdays I'm hung over ;(, some Thursdays I'm tired). I am on the tenure hunt and loving every minute of it. I haven't stopped writing fiction, it gets written. It just doesn't get completed.



I just started a new fiction project from some old notes. And the potential that was there four… Continue

Work in Progress

Dr. Phil Brooks stood in a soundproof room surrounded by military brass that wanted answers and they wanted them yesterday. Dr. Brooks handed each of them black files stamped TOP SECRET/BIOLOGICAL WARFARE. “This is what we have been working on here in the labs. I am sure you will understand the seriousness of the situation at hand.”

A grunt came from the Chairman of Joint Chiefs Brigadier General William Marks but he let it go.

Studying the file, it took General William Thomas, M.D… Continue

Earth Squadron Project Progress

I thank you guys for putting your money where your mouth is. I am coming completely out of pocket for all this because it has to be done. My son is not the only young black child that needs for positive black toys to play with. Second fiddle and sidekicks just won't cut it for him. I have to take a few months to get my skills up to par while the action figure is re-done and the storyboards for the comic book get drawn. The 3d Movie should be ready by Fall 2009.

The SHADOW

The storm comes on again like an explosion as I turn and leap off of the steps. It’s so strong… pushes me sideways and we almost fall. It’s so loud that I can’t hear if the door opens behind us.

I don’t look back.

The deep snow pulls at my pumping legs but the storm wind pushes at me from behind. I don’t dare turn. Just run. Keep running. Don’t drop her.

The twin bushes rise up ahead of me, still whipsawing snow all about; the wind seems to… Continue

Great News!

My novel, Sunny and the Leopard People, has just been acquired by Sharyn November at Viking (for the harcover) and Firebird Books (for the paperback). Both are imprints of Penguin.

Murder In Nufrika III



Murder In Nufrika (Part III)




Diana’s family home was in the middle of a Uganda safari, miles from modern civilization, although civilization was very evident in this well established mansion. Its structure was fashioned after the American White House. The house itself was deep purple, black and gold. Carter would joke that it could be seen from the same distance of a satellite. The front lawn was divided by a path… Continue

Murder In Nufrika II



Murder In Nufrika (Part II)




I slammed the phone down on Calhoun’s ear. His arrogance has made my blood boil. Although I am the Sergeant there is a level of respect that I got at the precinct that I could do without. Although they never made it blatant, half the officers resented didn’t respect me due to my American ancestry. I was not going to bring my son down to be subjected to Calhoun’s or other’s scrutiny. Not… Continue

Murder In Nufrika I



Murder In Nufrika (Part I)






Atabra, Sudan. February 23, 2216. Five days before the first centennial of “New Africa”, as the elder politicians still call it. The average citizen chuckle and scoff at the archaic pronunciation. The term was now “Nufrika” coined by the young and those who resist the conformed. Even my 15 year old son, Carter G.W. Danjuma (Because he was born on a Friday) finds such people… Continue

the coal powered space shuttle (science fiction poem)

I am here to day to tell you

Of a step forward

Or maybe one backwards

In space age technology



When you here what I say

You may shutter

The coal powered space shuttle



You’ll get were you’re going

Just as fast

But slower



Its modern technology

From yesterday

today



Who needs potent liquid

When you have black rocks

It’ll be just like grilling in space



But in any case

If its good enough… Continue

Another rough draft excerpt from Visitors to NeoAfrica

Three hours earlier, Admiral McCray and First Officer Thorvald were ferried back to their ship on board the NeoAfrican cruiser, Douglass.

Admiral McCray and the cruiser’s captain, Anita Johnson, had a pleasant conversation, while Thorvald looked on in his usual silence. When McCray and the captain parted it was with good cheer and the two Unity Expedition officers walked through the docking tube connecting the Douglass to the Admiral’s command ship Swiftstrider.

“This is intolerable,”… Continue

Posted by Joe Pledger on October 8, 2018 at 2:20am 0 Comments

DC's answer to the film 'Black Panther' should be 'Icon'!  Starring Denzel Washington as Augustus Freeman and either Zendaya or Amandla Stenberg as Rocket,  'Icon' is the story of how an alien crash lands in a cotton field in 1839 and adopts the appearance of the first person that comes into contact with it being a slave woman.  He lives through American history leaving behind a legacy as his next begotten's namesake arriving in the present day as August Freeman IV.  Convinced of his otherworldly abilities to better his race by a teenager name Rocket,  Augustus Freeman becomes the superhero 'Icon'.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

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.
