Enjoy!

Imagining what a Dalek might say to a government interviewer when captured. This is skwibby fiction: stories inspired by news and current events (in this case a New Scientist piece about the nature of sarcasm).

Death of a Blogger

Confrontation, Chapter 15 of Eyes in the Shadow
by Donald S. Crankshaw of Back of the Envelope
The latest 3,287 word chapter of a 46,429 word continuing novella rated PG-13.

Hotel Laissez-Passer
by Antoinette Baker of Passing Trains
A 4,212 word short story rated G.

Before modern, expansive bridges spanned the Hudson, there was the Beacon Ferry - here, piloted by an inebriated captain. Having run aground trying reach Newburgh, failed passenger Willa pens an urgent letter to her closest and dearest friend, wherein she describes the incredible encounter and amazing discovery which had prompted her attempted crossing.
________________________________________________

Great Dismal, Part VIII
by J. Fielek of Quibbles-n-Bits
A lengthy excerpt of an ongoing project rated R (in addition to violence, this story contains some language and sexual content that may be considered offensive by some).

The Saga continues...

While some may consider some content offensive, in my judgment, this is a well-told tale. The language and sexual references are integral pieces of the story, setting, and characterization.

I'm not sure my link to Death of a Blogger is working right. Other than that, thanks for putting this together, and I'll be putting up a link to it soon.
