Eleven stories for under ten dollars? Wtf? Sooo, here we have an anthology collection of eleven, that's right, 11 select stories by EMT/author Ross Allaire. This collection includes the novella... More > "Figment Sage" and the semi/neo-epic poem "The Busride To Oblivion" and also one story that's only a few paragraphs. There's a few stories wherein harm comes to an innocent, and you might be casually horrified. Does that make it horror? I don't know. I don't think so. I mean, at the end of the day, there's not much that's truly SUPER-natural in these stories, is there? Even a ghost has an electromagnetic resonance frequency, or something. Anyway, these stories are nuts. It's out there. It's all out there. For all of you.< Less

For which He wonders if forgiveness is possible. Because now he is a only a ghost of the God he once was - now retired. After this one incarnation as a human being on Earth, he quit. As God, he had become indifferent. But as a tall black Jew with blue eyes and red hair in the Roman Empire, he proved to be too smart for his own good. Or maybe just too human. He tried to quit. The Autobiography of Jesus X is either the new Bible or the most offensive book ever written, or both. Part sci-fi/fantasy, part exposé memoir, and part stand-up comedy.He pretty much frames it as His last message to humanity. So we might want to listen. Or read. Or whatever.< Less
What would you do if you seemed to be immortal? How would you spend all that time? And would you ever write a memoir? The narrator of Life Is A Temp Position says he's tried seven times before. He... More > says he's almost a thousand years old, and still doesn't know how or why he's immortal. And it doesn't matter. He's one of the richest people in the world. The true top 1%. Or so he thinks.
Eric has seen things that most people don't know were ever even there. He used to be the Black Knight, of Arthurian Legend. In the mid-1600s he helped kill the last two Thunderbirds – or dragons – in North America. He was treated like a living god in El Dorado before the arrival of Spanish conquistadors. He's known as something of a demon in the criminal underworld.
But the façade of a man in control disintegrates as he comes to terms with his own identity, and those of the other immortals he finds. And battles. And loves.< Less
