The Moving Finger

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Stephen King wrote a short story called 'The Moving Finger,' in which an ordinary man found a particularly unordinary finger coming out of his bathroom drain. It was especially an odd finger in that it had an unknown but extremely large number of knuckles, and what the heck is a finger doing coming out of a bathroom drain to poke around the sink anyway?Composed of a photo of the bathroom sink, some photos of my finger, and a bit of texting over the bottle label since I didn't feel like having a bottle of Johnson's Clean-n-Clear on Mitla's pretend sink.

Oh, this is a fun one... Years ago now, a friend of mine invented a race of aliens and used them to annoy my brother in an AIM conversation. I proceeded to take this extremely silly concept and write a serious story fragment around it -- then I lost it for about three years. This, then, is the story, found, typed up, and edited a bit. I'm actually surprised at how decent it is considering its age. I thought about changing the names -- if you click the link above or take a good look at the names below, you might notice something strange about them -- but in the end decided to leave them. Maybe later I'll change them, but for now I just can't see the names of people and places as being anything but what's below.
