Re: High Ground - repost

Chapter Ten Jimmy dashed through the great foyer, singing. He loved the way his voice echoed off the arched ceiling. He loved the sunlight filtering through the green glass skylight onto the strangely patterned tile floor. His grandmother shushed him harshly from the dim parlor to the right of the ...

Re: High Ground - repost

Chapter Nine James contemplated the large chain link double gate—topped with concertina wire—that stood before him at the end of the bridge that crossed the creek that bore his surname on maps. Beyond the gate, the road snaked up the hillside. Two stone pillars marked the start of the grade. Inscri...

Just post the damn storey. LOL OK. Here is some more. Chapter Eight “So,” said Scoots, “what’s your story?” “I’m heading to Wayatewah,” said Rob. “That’s a fur piece,” said Scoots. “And then I’m coming back,” said Rob. “Coming back into the city?” asked Tallulah. “Why?” “My wife and kids are in a s...

Chapter Seven It was dark when Tallulah woke Scoots. Groggy, he looked around to get his bearings. He was in a bedroom. In a farmhouse. Tallulah was wearing her headlamp, and he couldn’t see her face. The shadows in the room moved as she walked toward the door. Scoots realized he wasn’t wearing pan...

Chapter Six Rob opened his eyes. All he saw was a blank gray texture and he thought his eyes were clouded with sleep. He focused his eyes and saw the gray texture was his headliner fabric. He was reclined in the driver’s seat and the sun was not yet up. He stretched his arms over his head and then ...

Chapter Five James Adair walked past an inert carousel, its prancing ponies frozen mid-canter, and gazed across the park grounds toward the river. The Chestnut Street Bridge was bright and inviting, with shreds of festival bunting fluttering in the breeze. But it was crowded with revenants. The fie...

Yes, I'll post it all, and maybe I will even finish the last book in the series, and the prequel stuff I was writing. Chapter Four “This canned cheeseburger’s pretty good,” said the stout, bearded man behind the wheel of a battered Subaru Forester. The car was lifted, with off-road tires; it had ste...

Chapter Three Rob sped down the two-lane road through flickering bands of shadows from the trees. There were shamblers in the park and they were watching him go, but they were no worry. He knew the area well from before the outbreak, and previous forays had instructed him where the road was blocked...

Chapter Two The soup simmered on a hissing flame on the dual-fuel camp stove in the kitchen. It didn’t have much to thicken it, and the ingredients weren’t in many cookbooks. A cheap Chinese kerosene lantern gave thin light to the room. Cindy stirred the pot absently while the baby fussed feebly on...

High Ground - repost

Howdy, folks. After I published on Amazon, I deleted the story from ZS, but since I deleted the novel from Amazon, I figured it could come back to the place where it was born. It probably needs a rewrite, and I might edits bits, but it will be substantially the same as before. If you are rereading i...

Re: Fallout 4......

I am still playing FO4 on XBOX. It's the only game I play despite many to choose from. I've been playing on Survival mode, which at Level 83 is more of an inconvenience than anything: with no fast travel and no quick save, I have to walk everywhere and be sure to get some sleep now and then. I'm dea...

Pathogens in fog?

I can see this as a possible vector for a zombie pathogen--either natural ancient pathogens thawing from Siberian permafrost and carried by fog, or a weaponized aerosol. "But the fog isn’t just a boon to these plants and animals—it may also carry risk. The researchers detected taxonomic groups that ...

Re: Former AG Holder ... “take to the streets”

Note that nowhere in the article is Holder actually quoted as saying "take to the streets"; that's the Newspeak...I mean Newsweek...headline.
