Re: I looked and looked but I didn't see God

"Prestonoid fur," Maxwell answered a question no one asked, pulling another few strands from the wall of the compartment they found themselves in. "It's the most insulating material known to man. We should be fine for heat here." "That's true!" Renner couldn't help hims...

Re: I looked and looked but I didn't see God

The entire crew of the base quickly assembled outside, four to a lunar scooter. There: he appeared. A head taller than any other man, a face like flint, a gaze of glowing genius: the captain. Climbing out of the LuniScoot just one in front of White's, Captain Northbound bounced slowly onto the roof ...

I looked and looked but I didn't see God

"There's a moon storm moving in." Luninaut White heard the statement, considered it, and excreted it as nonsense, all without thinking about it at all. See the world! they'd said. He wiped his condensed breath from the window. The green and blue ball glowed in the distance. He took another...

Re: Land of Lost Content

The Marshal of the Nampata Arthur Semton, The Commonwealth Times (translated from Flamaguayan) I've never claimed to be a genius, but I know my country, and I have had the curiosity to seek out and discover others. This combination makes me unusual enough that I have been able to make a life explai...

Re: Radovan walks again

"I feel, Sir, at this instant, how much I had been animated in my childhood by a recital of Senland's victories. I was taught, sir, by one whose memory I shall ever revere, that at the close of a war, far different indeed from this, she had dictated the terms of peace to submissive nations. Thi...

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 12 *** We all love a good disaster story. Isn't that why we slow down for car crashes, watch the crime reports on the news, and turn out for public hangings? But when you're there in the middle of it, it's a different story. In the first place, you don't really notice it's a disaster. For sure, ...

Re: Tales of a nightwatchman

*** 10 *** Why did I go? Well, it would be easy to say that they would shoot me if I didn't. And it wouldn't be a lie. But at some point they lost interest in me, and started doing things like writing their final letters to their mothers, praying to whatever it was they believed in, and drinking as ...
