Villain Series: Part IV

Forward: Welcome welcome welcome! This is the final part in the villain series. I really hope everyone has enjoyed it so far. Now, part four is a little different from the rest. It's written in 1st person POV instead of 3rd to allow a better in-depth look at Chernobog. It's also shorter than the others, because … Continue reading Villain Series: Part IV

Villain Series: Part III

Chernabog looks in the mirror he’s been standing in front of for the past quarter hour. He looks human, but beyond that he has difficulty differentiating this body from that of every other human on the planet. He doesn’t poke or prod at the human jumpsuit. There is just too much of him in it. … Continue reading Villain Series: Part III

Villain Series: Part II

For the first time in centuries, Chernabog is too surprised to be angry. He digs one long claw around in his right ear before angling toward Belobog “I thought you said go out. On a date,” Chernabog says. He wrinkles his nose and draws his lips away from his teeth, brow furrowed. “Yes, yes. I … Continue reading Villain Series: Part II

Villain Series: Part I

Mount Triglav gives an earth-rumbling heave before the world falls silent. There is no light here. There is no life. It is Walpurgisnacht—a night the pagans once celebrated with bonfires and dancing. Thunder breaks the silence and in the following stillness there begins a gentle shutter through the earth, the air, a shimmering of heat … Continue reading Villain Series: Part I

On Creating a Villain

Hey. Hi. Yeah… it’s me. Look, I know it’s been a while, but that’s why my bio doesn’t include “responsible adult” in it anywhere. But I’m back now. Oh, and Dave is here, too. Say hi, Dave. Dave? Hmm, must be his nap time. Well, that’s all right. I’m here. And today, I’d like to … Continue reading On Creating a Villain

The No-Win Situation

Hello there, guys and dolls! We’re about to get into a topic I really didn’t want to get into. Or, maybe it’s a topic I thought I’d never have to get into. Either way, here we are, about to discuss vaccines. And anti-vaxxers, of course. And how the anti-vaccination movement is contributing to an upswing … Continue reading The No-Win Situation

The Shill and the Purblind

It's a little exposition-dense. A kink I'll work out over the drafts to come. For now, since it's been so long and I know you need something to live on—talking to you Dave—enjoy this bit of fiction from The Shill and the Purblind.     My mother was a slave, Idun Verdandi recited. My mother tried to … Continue reading The Shill and the Purblind

Genome Editing Advancements

I know, I know. It’s been days. But, you can relax now. I’m here. Oh, and Dave, of course. Dave is always here. Today we (but mostly I) are going to discuss the fun, exciting, and controversial topic of genetic manipulation! I’ll hold for applause. Specifically, we’re talking about genome editing. The first quarter of … Continue reading Genome Editing Advancements

In Celebration of World Poetry Day

Swelling Hour Swelling hour, ebbing light Dusk of night—deep and deeper still, Stealing light as May’s shifting breeze Steals sound: still and deep and silent. Still in swelling hour’s silent depths May’s maternal night shelters The fugitives of ebbing light. Blades of night-dark pasture stretch And reach and reach and grasp Then bend and sway … Continue reading In Celebration of World Poetry Day
