He’d been getting underground CRISPR treatments for years. Maybe his new friends didn’t suspect, but I knew Elray back in the 90s, when I was in high school and he was pushing 40. He should have been in his late 70s, but with a full head of jet black hair and athletic build, he looked younger than when I hung out with him. Plus he had to be eight inches taller. He was all brilliant white smiles as he walked up to me in his signature black tuxedo, through the crowd of retro-punks and retro-mods.

Sabina is Gone

December 30, 2014

Lilly knew she would have to go after her friend Sabina in the cave. The rocks under Lilly’s bare feet were sharp. Igneous rocks, thought Lilly, realizing that she had actually learned something in science this year. She walked gingerly toward the large, shadowy entrance, trying not to cut her feet. Why hadn’t Sabina stayed out of the cave? Lilly distinctly told her to stay away, that the creatures were after her, not Sabina. Lilly thought about how Sabina was constantly combing her long, blond hair, and how it was probably a tangled mess now with Sabina lost in a frightening, dark cave.

The Daisybrain Universe

September 6, 2014

There comes a time when a man sits down at a rickety chair and table at a cafe that only serves buns and gelato. At such a time, the man may decide to publish a Daisybrain post with no original content. This is such a time. As an alternative to newness, I give you oldness. Specifically, I present you with seven portals to very special Daisybrain posts of the past – posts that, unless you are me, you probably have never come across before.

Please carefully choose your daisy, and click forth!dasy1

ghost trains

Train Station Observation Decks (TSODs) are strange places. Because they have been built to observe all time streams, you can often find people sitting there for hours, watching departed loved ones board trains at various times in the past. It’s hard not to get emotional when you see a father pointing out “Mommy” to a 4-year-old as they watch reruns of her boarding from before a tragic accident or illness.

With the overwhelmingly absent response to my previous short story post, I can only conclude that the world wants to read more of my fiction. And so, I bring you a 1,000 word story about my dishwasher. Enjoy!

I dunno why, but a sic-fi story idea popped into my head the other day and needed to be written down. Here’s the synopsis. If you want to pay me millions of dollars for the screen play, you know where to leave a comment!



In 2016, Ibrahim and Sandrine Barry discovered a cheap and easy method to extend animal life indefinitely. Knowing that the release of this information would quickly lead to an unimaginable population explosion accompanied by mass starvation and destruction of the planet, they kept their secret for over a decade, refusing even to extend the lives of Ibrahim’s parents, whom they watched die. Ibrahim and Sandrine also believed it would be unethical to take the mortality cure themselves.
