Which You?

by Chris Miskiewicz

“I’m very old fashioned for a bisexual polyamorous girl,” she said as I lit a cigarette, which was an odd thing to do since I don’t smoke. “Well that’s very interesting, but I’m afraid that we’re out of time. I have another appointment down the block at three.” Her smile dropped some of its […]

Last Night at Sunny’s

by Chris Miskiewicz

Last night the wind was so strong outside of Sunny’s as it whipped off the bay. A building has to have something to it to take that much spirit in the face so often. That constant force, unending, coming straight from the sea. I remember when we found the bar ten years ago. Red […]

GANG OF FOOLS: BAD BOYS

by Guest Contributor

Coles checked his gunsight again, snapped in a fresh mag and patted his buckles. Still acting the newbie.  Bale smirked at him, but said nothing. As hazing went, Bale was pretty easy to deal with.

GANG OF FOOLS: BREAKYARD

by Guest Contributor

You had to get to the breakyard early. Nariya learned that the way she learned everything, by going hungry when she failed. She’d already been beat there by her grandmother, Suvemi, sitting in her shawl of rat skins, sipping from a tin cup, watching the sea break over the spine of the last ship beached […]

The End of Science Fiction

by Chris Miskiewicz

 

I remember how he used to stay up late looking into the sky at whatever stars would show talking about how things used to be. This usually was preceded by a few drinks, which were prompted by bills, or power outages, water shortages, government breadlines not opening when they said they would, or any […]

GANG OF FOOLS: ASSISTED LIVING

by Guest Contributor

The dream was a bad one. Not a nightmare. Nightmares were fine. They were little horror movies in your head, they were fantastic flights of adventure with a dark twist. She could get into that. The bad ones were something else. They were real. They were dreams that expressed the banality, the sad flat pathetic […]

Good House

by Chris Miskiewicz

She walks down Manhattan Avenue with strong shoulders and a supple posture. Her dog trails behind as well as leads her along. It’s a familiar walk, like they’ve been doing this together for a while. The street aches from bitter winds. Steam blows from manhole covers and smokestacks. While the scent of bread from […]
