Pathogen

PATHOGEN by Pen of the Damned’s Joseph Pinto

Cleanliness is next to godliness.

So I was ordained.

I did not wish to realize what soon would become my mission – no, not at first.  However, upon mahogany framed photographs, cabinetry and desktops and once brilliant sheens of glass, I glimpsed smudge laden impressions, shrilling so loudly in defiance, that no longer could I deny my calling.

When first I arrived, t’was the maid I suspected of carelessness.

The maid – the latex so snug round each of her delicate fingers; how I adored the brisk snap of glove at her wrist. The maid – whose pores emanated the addictive rich luster of lemon and pine. Yes, at first I suspected the maid of carelessness, of inattention to detail, but – forgive me – that notion occurred before God came to me, before He revealed the goodness of her aseptic heart. All too clearly then, I recognized the…

Five Great Quotes by Stan “The Man” Lee

The Road to Nowhere...

Five Great Quotes by Stan “The Man” Lee.

stan-leeHow would you like to write books every month that sold hundreds of thousands every time? Meet Stan Lee. Yes, some of you are turning your noses up at comicbooks. Yes, I spelled it comicbooks because Stan Lee says so. Because of Marvel comics I learned how to read and sound out long words. Amazing to some people. The books weren’t just filled with pow, bang, zip. With scientists on the scene they had to talk like they were scientists and part of Stan’s theory of comicbooks was and is to keep the people real even if they were super powered beings. For a genre to still be going strong and having mega hits every decade in the movies and on TV there must be something to…

Not Quite Indian Summer

NOT QUITE INDIAN SUMMER by Pen of the Damned’s Hunter Shea

Tag, you’re it!”

“Ow, my mother said no one’s supposed to touch me there!” April rubbed her chest, frowning at Ben.

“Big deal. It’s not like you have boobs or anything.”

Before she could tell him she did so have boobs, Ben ran off, calling her ‘flatso’. He disappeared behind the Mowry’s house.

Probably hiding in their shed, April thought.

“Come on April, you have to start looking for us,” her friend Melody shouted, zipping past her, going across the street into her own backyard.

She smiled, momentarily forgetting the throbbing pain behind her left nipple. “Okay, I’m gonna count to ten!”

Her mother bought her a training bra just last night, right after dinner. It was a special mommy-daughter shopping night at Kohls. They got frozen yogurt afterwards. April wondered if the flimsy thing would have cushioned the blow. It was in her drawer now, waiting…

Monarch-Man

MONARCH-MAN by Pen of the Damned’s Thomas Brown

“I am a winged creature who is too rarely allowed to use its wings. Ecstasies do not occur often enough.” Anais Nin

It has gone midnight when I cross the park but he is quite visible by the street lamp. Stick limbs. Wild hair. The sickly-sweet scent of honey. He is filthy and beautiful, this Monarch-Man, my Emperor of Flies.

I have been following him for months now. Sometimes it feels like my whole life has been lost to his search. Rather, it has been lost to my search for him. He takes no part in my hunt. I would be surprised if he knew that I sought him at all. But I had, I have; from the first moment I set eyes on him, crawling from the tube station.

I alone watched him tumble through the turnstiles and into the street. He reached the curb on his side…
