  1. Fleeting Eternity

    By Wayne Gray, in Fiction. 05/20/2019 (Updated: 05/20/2019)

    Does anything last forever?

    This question is on the minds of all of our characters in this tale. This isn't a story of eternal happiness. Instead, it is one of using the time we have the best way that we can.

    A life well-lived means that we go on long after our last breath - a fleeting life, rippling out forever.

  11. Circumstances

    By RichEisbrouch, in Fiction. 03/29/2019 (Updated: 05/10/2019)

    This is a collection of short stories I've previously posted on this site. I'm slowly moving them to one place and deleting them as separate entries. I'll also be adding new stories as they're finished.

    I realize I'll unfortunately lose some readers' reactions and comments on my older stories, but the move should make my writing easier to find. It's also what the site editors suggest.

    This collection parallels the collection of my short non-fiction in this site -- Collections.

At times all his family and friends, particularly his older friend, Johnny (the narrator of these fragments of Sean's life), can do is to be there for him, and help him to pick up the pieces when things go wrong. Even when, sometimes, Sean himself doesn't even seem to want to pick up the pieces.

  14. GFD: Blood Money

    By Comicality, in Fiction. 04/29/2019 (Updated: 04/30/2019)

    The underground fighting arenas in the vampire world can be a dangerous and brutal game to play for most! But for those who are skilled enough to play the game, it can be a profitable venture for any vampire who wants to avoid living in the sewers, junkyards, and abandoned buildings, around the city of Chicago. A skilled brawler named Jacob is fighting for something. Something that he believes in. And he's come too far to stop now! Even if it brings him, face to face, with an opponent that may be completely out of his league.
