DEISEL

DAWN OF THE BLACK SUPERHEROES

DEISEL




A scream like that of some tortured animal lanced out down South street from out of nowhere. Loud enough to immediately silence a usually very noisy crowd. The scream did not stop however, it continued on turning into a grinding motor-like sound. That's when the other screams started.

Their cries rose in my mind like hot steam, and it took me a moment to adjust to the din. From the few thoughts that were clear to me I could only… Continue

Snow White by Carole McDonnell

I do not like the name: Snow White.

No one could be that pure.

But, accepting it, let us move on.

Such purity,

existing in a world as political as a castle,

could be daunting, unnerving.

And for a beautiful queen,

learned in intrigue,

reared in flattery,

such purity would not only be daunting,

but also an affront.



I am thinking of a girl I met in college,

an idealist at twenty,

who wrote… Continue

Taste: Chapter Two

The Guide




Vye had only been submerged for a few seconds and already Dame believed. Her appearance was almost angelic as the thin rays of morning shone through the crystal clear waters, zigzagging playfully across her golden skin. He'd always admired her courage, her ability to fight. They’d shared a mutual respect over the years while noticing one another from afar and recently they’d formed a friendship he sensed would flourish under the new faith.

Another excerpt from Visitors to NeoAfrica

Looking out the shuttle window, Mensah took in the sight of the Unity Expedition ship, Swiftstrider and blew out an awed whistle. Display screen images in no way adequately captured the immense size of this behemoth vessel. One had to view a ship of this nature in person in order to appreciate its scale.

The largest NeoAfrican warship was barely a third the size of the Swiftstrider. How many of these ships did the Unity Pact have? Mensah wondered as his thoughts began to sober. He noted… Continue

Taste: Chapter One (Warning: Steamy Content)

Incident in Vine City



It was early evening as the sunset wrapped its rays around the anxious women. Deepest hues of ebony, coffee, and chestnut blurred with the golden sunlight seeping through the translucent clouds above. Vine City, coveted for its unique beauty, brimmed with a mischievous allure while the waters of the Mer Sea lightly kissed the surrounding shore. From above, the small metropolis was a gathering of peaks stabbing unapologetically at the sky in declaration of… Continue

Taste: The Prologue

Prologue



Beneath a sweltering noonday sun, the prickling sensation in her fingertips began to spread. Profuse sweating and violent hallucinations followed as the world around her swirled in the purplish haze of a narcotic high. Time slid to a sluggish halt as she closed her eyes, helplessly watching the blinding blue dance with screaming red behind her eyelids. Phase One of the shape-shift brought about a hurt so intense that all thought quickly became a dizzying distortion of… Continue

Into Africa

Back in the day, when I was calling myself “educating” people about Africa’s place in folklore and mythology, I wrote an article about the continent’s unknown beasts and mythical beings for Dragon magazine. Dragon was published by the people who were behind the renowned Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. I never was a gamer myself, but the article nonetheless had some influence. It was published in the June 1987 issue of Dragon, under the title “Out of Africa.” But I think “Into Africa”… Continue

Winter Ghost

WINTER GHOST

All I know of her is her voice, it quietly whispers through the blowing snow, which still falls. Her voice, it quietly calls for help, and cries in pain, drew me from my path and onto this chase through the snow filled streets of Mt. Airy. She always seems to be near, around the corner, behind that fence, just over that hill, but I never draw close enough to find her, never come close enough to see her.

*help*

Again I hear her voice and I twist in the piling snow, my… Continue

Excerpt from a novel I'm currently working on, tentatively titled Visitors to NeoAfrica.

“Those ships are huge,” Von Dellums, Director of Fleet Intelligence voiced in a subdued tone. “How much do you think they mass?” He turned to look up at the very tall man standing beside him.

Robert Mensah, Chief Advisor to the President of the NeoAfrican Federation blew out a thoughtful breath. “Hmmm. I’d say they’re twice the size of a Sofa Class Assault Cruiser. How well armed they are remains to be seen.”

Both men were in a surveillance room inside the Command Complex, a military… Continue

3D printing the future

Posted by ARCELIUS SCOTT on August 15, 2018 at 11:30am 0 Comments

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/114240903/drawns-3d-printed-range-of-design-furniture?ref=discovery&ref=discovery&term=3d%20printed

As of today Spacefans, the link above shows my new goal for my future in the 3D printing industry. 3D print farms are on the agenda for us to build our own, create our own, and own our own manufacturing methods and processes. After we meet the goal of 3D print farms, we should most definitely set our sights on using industrial articulating robots to "scale up" the manufacturing capability within the community.

A robot can cost anywhere between $25,000 and $100,000 but the industrious entrepreneur should be able to find one on the lower end of the spectrum. I'm not here to sell robots, just here to share vision with…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

Posted by Turtel Onli on August 14, 2018 at 7:52am 1 Comment

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not reach the under served market.

This is a great opportunity & challenge foe legal honest industrious folks.  To market and distribute the Black Age of Comics indie products.

OK..... you say were the regular stores contacted?  Of course. ONLI STUDIOS even offered them spinning racks.  They…

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.
