Re: Jungle Work

The timing was fortuitous. In Haversham and Jacksonville, people would be rising for work. In Urbs Dumanus, they would be eating dinner with their family. The recording was sent to all news stations everywhere, although some would have a little warning. It was Abdul, the man, in uniform, speaking to...

Re: Jungle Work

Hecate purred. Everything was in place now.

Everything was ready.

Midnight.

Hecate pulled the trigger.

Re: Jungle Work

Hecate stirred. He readied himself. Suddenly, out of nowhere, he could see; like a great, blinding flash, from nothing was created everything. He reached out with his many sensory tentacles, and touched everything there was to touch, listened to everything there was to hear, and saw everything there...

Re: Jungle Work

'Mother of God,' Gosling said, as they approached in the truck. You could see it from a mile away; a giant mass of metal. Little tin soldiers danced around them. The car got closer, and the palm oil plantations that lined the two-lane road dispersed to show the camp. It was bigger than they had ever...

Art of War Part 1 - Marengo, Gettysburg, and Compass

On a sweltering July afternoon, General John Bell Hood went to the head of his old brigade, ordered them to fix bayonets, and charge the Federal positions. He, and the Texans, must have been hot and tired; they had marched all morning and all afternoon across poorly reconnoitered roads and terrain a...

Re: Jungle Work

Abdul did not even notice Edwards come in. He had entered and sat at the back and waited, quite patiently, for the briefing to finish. It must have been boring for a Company man, Abdul thought. Even he could hardly stay awake. He was familiar with the terms, but in the sense of scale, they meant not...

Re: Jungle Work

Abdul never wore uniform when he traveled; simple trousers and a linen shirt was enough, but the underground bunker was very well air conditioned, so he had brought a thin sweater as well. It had the name of a polo company on it and a random year, selected to look good on a sweater. In contrast, the...

Re: Jungle Work

On the plane over, Jack Harper remembered the rail yard for some reason. It passed into his memory and then passed out again, like a fly in a kitchen. All he knew was that he was going to meet the Big Man for a debrief on Smyth's opinion, as he had done for the past two years. This time the Big Man ...
