On Tuesday, June 18, 1996 at St. Antony’s High School, 59 students and 12 teachers were killed in a riot during 6th Period Lunch. Identification of the dead lasted 19 days, and notification of... More > family members took the rest of that third week. Students’ parents were camped out on school property, and some members of the parish took rooms in the convent next door. Authorities heading the investigation - alumni of the school - later stated that it had been decided from the start that news of the incident should not be made public – for fear of creating a panic. The parents of the victims complied. 4 teenagers just got away with the crime of the century, and no one seems to care. So what? Now what? These four are "godlings" out to conquer the world and then some. They take no great care and no prisoners… at least not yet. Find out what makes these kids tick, or if they even tick at all.

5 nights & 5 days in the dysfunctional life of Arthur Legend. This is the mid 1990’s suburban American teenaged work week, Monday thru Friday, right after the kids are off for the summer.... More > It’ll be Arthur’s senior year come fall, and his short stories have already caught the attentions of the student body, as well as friends. Glimpses of his creative and somewhat tortured mind speckle and repaint the canvas of this portrait, by way of inglorious mini- adventures featuring Private Legend stalking zips in Vietnam, Commander Legend on a mission to Mars with a deathly sick navigator, among other incarnations… oh, and there’s drugs. Coffee & booze, too.< 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
It's not what you think. Unless you think everything is wrong. Imagine if Kurt Vonnegut and Hunter Thompson collaborated on a new version of The Bible, and you kinda get the gist. The Autobiography... More > of Jesus X is not for the faint of heart! Here is the prophet: a cynical, dreadlocked pothead crackpot who's done all sorts of despicable things. 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
