Walking Boots
One day, you may discover walking boots on your porch.   Walking boots are weather-beaten.   They are just your size.   You may have vague memories of buying them,
but this is a lie. The walking boots never tire and never slip.   They always take you where ...

Welcome Back
The mask had cut most of the smell since they’d left the ship.  Jev’s eyes started watering the moment she removed it.  Tral kept his on, the wheezing of his recycler the only sound, other than the distant hum of the roving swarms.  They weren’t a threat ye...

Malfunctions
Timothy turned on the tap. “The water isn’t working right,” said Betty. And it wasn’t.  It flowed out of the tap and down to the sink, clear and cold to the touch, but it wouldn’t get anything wet.  He added coffee grounds to the filter holder and they just...

Morning After the Sun Did Not Rise
The bed hovered over the immeasurable void. Kinny and I hadn't worked up the courage to enter it yet. A chill wind blew up from beneath, and all around was blackness. Somewhere, a dog barked. “Pretty sure it’s your turn to let her out,” Kinny said. “If our ...

Hunting
He fills in the crossword while he waits. He does not skulk in bushes, not anymore, not since he learned about Starbucks; cafes; newspapers. He shaves often, especially during the week of the full moon. Hunting is a mental state as much as an action. He sip...

Theory of Relativism
“I have a solution,” said Pigh.   “The
Valiri Gem requires the sacrifice of the most powerful love in the universe in
order to destroy it for good, right? “Right.” “Okay.   First, renounce all
principles, beliefs, and personal ideals.” “What?” “Just do it.”...

"What We're Having" at Strange Horizons
My story " What We're Having " is up at Strange Horizons this week. It's a quiet and (hopefully) charming little relationship story, centered on a time-traveling skillet.  Enjoy!

A House, Haunted
We
spent the night in a haunted house.  We
didn’t have to.  No one forced us.  We’re not sure now why we did. There
were no horrifying apparitions.  No blood

The Squid of Despair
The Squid of Despair takes up most of the living room now. Its muddy, brown-­gray skin saps the brightness from the room, or perhaps simply highlights the lack already there. It rolls a dinner-plate­-sized eye at me as I step over its sprawled tentacles. I ...

Purity
Count Darigon cackled as the Sword refused to budge. “I know you, King Amberion,” he rasped.  "You are a thoughtful leader and a complicated man. You are good . But the Sword can be wielded only by the pure of heart. Can you truly say that you have never si...
