This story is my submission to James Bowers' The Project Six. Thanks and credit to Lindsey Butler, Lilith's co-creator!
This short story is a Dialogue, and should be read as such. It is part of a larger story I am writing, but have no fear, it was made to be read by itself. It is my furturistic vision of consciousness, love and sex. It is also a representation of how I feel about my husband.
Art-jackers take control of the most famous aesthetic spacecraft in modern history, leaving only one survivor.
This is the prelude to a comic/graphic novel I was toying with and the visuals are a reflection of that origin. Final scene is perhaps a bit cliche, but I wrote this before 'The Ring' and that movie ripped it off Poltergeist in any case.
This is part of a much longer story that I'm currently writting and I would be very intressted to hear what people make of this part of it. I'm not going to post all of it as there is a possibility that I will publish it if it turns out to be good.
A small piece inspired by cliche anime series and a short story I wrote when I was young... there was a character in it... an outcast android, abandoned because he was too 'human'. um... yeah... so this is really just a back story.. i may expand the idea to a character or something.. *shrugs*
Okay okay. I know I've made some of you suffer intolerable agony for making you wait so long. I truly apologize, but I had a lot of trouble writing this chapter. I thought I would get farther so I could explain some of the biotechnical stuff, but it just didn't work out that way. In between a week of camp and my computer acting up, it took me three tries to get the chapter going. So please bear with me: I despise this chapter. If you can think of some improvements I can make or have any ideas, feel free to criticize politely. CONSTRUCTIVE! If that word is too big, look it up at dictionary.com. A very handy website, I believe. The next chappie should be up soon, if not at the same time. Later!

I began this last year, obsessed with birth and babies and wombs and the mother-baby connection. But the medicalization of childbirth wasn't supposed to sound quite so positive. Try as I might the story kept ending this way, and I kept stopping in between and thinking no, no, no---natural childbirth good, surgical bad!I guess nothing challenges your perception like experience.The technology is current. I didn’t have to stretch my imagination too far to describe it, but I was so obsessed with getting it right I nearly forgot the whole point of writing it---the child, the connection, the invisible cord.
Another story resulting from some ideas in my scifi english...I'm not quite happy with this one, it was meant to be written in the Cyberpunk vein, but the jagged writing style was hard for me to accomodate for. I'd like to turn it into a longer piece, as there was a lot I didn't have room for.
This was actually done as a class assignment, which I later fleshed out into the short story you see below
PLEASE READ MERCURY EYE FIRST-- SPOILERS WITHIN!!The sequel that I probably shouldn't have written but I did anyway because I love my Mercs and couldn't resist writing about them again. :) This story is a continuation of the plot from Mercury Eye. Dedicated to Darian Lewis for 200th comment title.
Technology can be a marvellous thing, but relying on it too heavily can have dangerous and unforseen consequences... (Okay, this is my first real sci-fi, so bear with me here...)
'Humans beings are a disease, a cancer on this planet. You are a plague, and we are...the cure'
Well, this one kinda works on its own, without a description, other than to say that bunch of numbers in the title is binary code for 'Dreams', the true title of this piece. Enjoy, then take a good look at the computer you're using, and wonder, 'What if...?' :) Oh, ya, and I really like that line about forsaking gods, it seems to be better every time I look at it.... :)
