Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671

Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday
http://www.eoghann.com/comic-book-review-star-wars-1-jason-aaron-john-cassaday

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm comic book fans have been waiting for Star Wars to return to home.  The very first licensed Star Wars comics were produced by Marvel so there is a nice symmetry to this, though we shouldn't dismiss the fine work done by Dark Horse with the franchise over the years.

So how does the new Star Wars #1 stack up against previous comics? Is this a must buy, or just another cheap cash in?

Istanbul 40% Off At Amazon
http://amzn.to/1zmT952

If you're looking for a new board game to play you may wish to check out Istanbul (not Constantinople) which Amazon is offering for $29.95.

Istanbul essentially gamifies the economic activity of a bazaar. The aim of the game is to be the first merchant to collect a certain amount of rubies. It looks pretty fun.

My what a fun week this was. First three days of travel then I get to spend the fourth evening in the hospital because of a kidney stone.

I am damn glad that didn't happen while I was away though, because it is the most excruciating pain I have ever felt.

The Origins Of A Story

In which the  author, because he cannot imagine people finding him droning on about his process anything less than riveting, proceeds to tell you how he conceived the idea for his first Douglas Brodie story and then executed it.

It all started with the phrase "Shepherdstown is overrun with werewolves."

This fact was reported to me semi-humorously, probably about 10 years ago now, by my father in law as being something that he had been told in deadly earnest. It's a rather unique idea and it stuck with me.

Okay that's just irritating and incredibly redundant.

So I have ePub and mobi(kindle) versions of my book that I have formatted. But Smashwords won't let me upload the mobi version. Instead I would have to convert it to DOC (which I don't use) make sure it meets their style guidelines and upload that so they can then convert it to mobi.

Seriously?

So we are currently facing what they are calling a "complex weather system" in our area which may present two rounds of winter storms back to back. One hitting to the west, the other to the east.

Since I"m supposed to be travelling tomorrow I'm paying close attention to the forecasts. Here is what I have learned:

If you're looking for copy-editing, proof reading or related services here's someone to keep in mind.

Editing Shaun:

I've officially opened up a freelance editing business, retooling the skills developed from all those years spent teaching English for a related, but far more enjoyable task:  proofreading and copy editing.

If you're looking for someone to look over our novel or other documents, keep me in mind.  Additionally, I would appreciate any help in spreading the word.

Hopefully, this will be the start of something amazing.

Okay so I'm getting way ahead of myself, but it saves me doing the hard stuff. So I did a quick mockup of the cover art for ZombieMart (which it won't need until I get through at least 2 more drafts).

where you can also find an nicer formatted version of this installment ( http://www.eoghann.com/zombiemart-part-3-zombies )

If you are looking for good life advice, one thing I can offer you is that you should never let yourself become trapped on top of storage racks in a warehouse while surrounded by stinky, icky colored zombie producing mist.

It's a bit specific I suppose, but I think it holds true for everyone.

While working night shift at Supermart 13 isn't exactly what you'd call fun, I can honestly say it had never been this unpleasant before.  Admittedly up here on top of the shelves I was probably fairly safe. I don't imagine zombie training involves much climbing. It's more about biting things and moaning probably.

But I had two immediate worries. The first was that the shelving I was standing on  was now completely surrounded by the increasingly foul smelling green mist. The second, was all the screams I could now hear coming from the store itself.  If this outbreak wasn't contained we could be talking a full scale zombie apocalypse. And that was not on my list of things to do at the weekend.

Bethany seemed to have been reduced to some sort of semi-catatonic hysteria. Every now and then she would whimper, but she wasn't going to be much use for anything. Since there really wasn't a safer place for her to be right now I decided to leave her be.

If I couldn't climb down from here, my only option was to go across. The warehouse was full of these shelf units so if I could get over to the other side I could probably work my way down to the end and maybe see out into the store itself. If I could get over.

The gap between my shelving unit and the other side looked alarmingly largely. I'm not scared of heights normally, but I don't usually try to long jump while 20 feet in the air either.

If I had been a little better prepared I might have had some magic to give me a boost.  There are a few options, it's possible to briefly reduce the effect of gravity and it's also possible to boost strength.  Unfortunately I didn't have anything suitable ready to go. I came here expecting to pack shelves, not play Captain America.

Still, who doesn't want to be Captain America? So I took a few steps back, mustered a rough approximation of courage and jumped.

I made it too. Sort of.  More precisely, I slammed stomach first into the edge of the shelving and clung on for dear life. Fortunately there's a lot of holes and things for fingers to grip on the shelving  so I wasn't in any immediate danger of falling down. Also fortunately I was at least half way onto the shelf itself so I was able to pull myself the rest of the way without too much effort.

At which point I rolled over and considered just closing my eyes and waiting for it to all go away.  But the screams weren't going to go away. So I pushed myself back to my feet and walked along to the end of the shelves.

From here I could see out into the store a short way. The green mist was gradually spreading out there too, although more slowly in that much wider space. But it was the zombies that were the real problem. They were attacking unfortunate shoppers like a feral pack. A slow and awkwardly moving one perhaps, but it was effective enough as the surprised shoppers were dragged down and my former colleagues savagely bit and ripped the flesh from their victims bodies.

If I was a positive sort of person I would point out how fortunate it was that it was the night shift and there weren't actually that many shoppers in the store. But that didn't help the ones who were there did it?

I had to do something. The problem was what exactly. An unprepared wizard against a zombie horde is not a good scenario. On the other hand, these creatures were not moving fast. Plus I was much more aware of the situation than the unfortunate shoppers and, I like to think, a little quicker on the uptake.

Besides, it's not like I really had a choice. I cautiously lowered myself over the edge of the shelf and began to climb down. Oddly enough going down was much more unsettling than going up, it's probably because I had to keep looking down to find my footing.

I should have looked down a little more often though. Because half way down I felt the firm but strangely cool grip of a hand around my ankle. Swiftly followed by a sharp tug that almost pulled me clear from the racks.

I admit it, I panicked. I screamed. It was probably a deep and manly scream, but it might not have been. Somehow I managed to cling on to the steel and resist the tugging on my leg. But gravity was against me and eventually the zombie thing would probably realize it could just bite my leg anyway.

I hadn't actually see these zombies turn others by biting them, but I've seen the movies, I know how this works. I tried to pull myself back up again, but the zombie wasn't letting go.

I glanced down thinking that maybe I could kick it and make it let go and found myself staring into the blank and strangely dead eyes of Maggie. And I froze.

It's not that Maggie and I are friends or anything, and one look at her face would tell you that Maggie wasn't even home right now. But, I couldn't do it. I couldn't kick her in the face.

Maggie's face contorted with animalistic hunger and her fingers dug into my ankle as she pulled relentlessly.

This is a bit of #SaturdayScenes fantasy that I think is relatable whatever genre you might be interested in. We've all had a big project and we've all had that sense of nervous panic.

*Hobbes Gets Drunk*

Greetings and Salutations everyone, I have something for this week's #SaturdayScenes that I think might amuse. It's a draft form of the second to last scene in the forthcoming HemoGoblins novella Intimate Congress.



There’s this thing that happens when you’re working on a big project for a while. When the day comes that it’s all going to down you—and by you, I mean me—wake up feeling different. You’ve done all the work. You’ve done all the worrying. You’ve done all the everything that can be done and now there is nothing left but the doing. It’s like there’s a sense of calm resolve that permeates your—my—whole body. I get more patient than I normally am. I’m less of a caustic wiseass. I’m all business and there is nothing that’s going to get in my way.

I felt it first on the day of the Kill School final melee. I felt it on the day things were going down in the Wollstonecraft Affair.

This morning I so did not feel it.

We didn’t do all the research. We didn’t do all the work we didn’t do all the everything, we pulled a plan out of our buttocks the day before and were lucky as all get out to be able to actually implement the damn thing in time. Did we know it would work? Hell no. We thought it would work. We hoped it would work. It made sense that it would work.

There’s a whole lot of things in this cavern that would make sense if they worked, but don’t, you know, actually work.

Which is to say, I woke up in a state bordering on panic.

“What are we gonna do if it doesn’t work?” I asked Finch as we broke our fast in the common room.

“It’ll work,” she said.

“You don’t know that. You can’t know that.”

“It’ll work.”

“Stop telling me it’ll work, we didn’t have a chance to make sure it will work. We don’t even know how the stuff works.”

She stared at me with that look she gets when she wishes I would just punch myself in the face.

I stared right back at her with my look that says she’s being a completely unreasonable person.

At least, I thought that’s what that look said. She told me later it just looked like I had gas.

Yeah, well, it felt like I had gas.

“You’ve got to calm down,” she said.

“How the hell can I calm down?” this is the most monstrously huge thing either of us has ever been involved with. This is the thing that led you to sign up for kill school in the first place. If we are ever remembered for anything, this is what it’s going to be.”

I know, right, I actually said that. What did I know. I was stupid.

She put her spoon down and looked me right in the eyes and said, “Hobbes, I am only going to tell you this one more time, because, frankly, if you weren’t listening the eight times I told you last cycle, or the six times so far this cycle, you’re not going to get it no matter how many times I say it.”

I fidgeted a little in the chair. She was getting a little cranky, and she could go from cranky to over the top insane in about a third of a second.

“We’re going to do this and it’s going to work. If it doesn’t work, we will come back here and hide out and make another plan that will work.”

“But—”

“But nothing. This must succeed.”

“But—”

“But nothing. We have to do it.

“But—”

“But nothing. We will get it done. If not this cycle then some other cycle. And why?”

“Because…”

“Why?” she asked, more insistently.

“Because we’re awesome.”

“Yer gorram right we’re awesome. We’re smart. We’re creative. We work hard. There is nothing that we can’t do when we set our minds to it and if that means our first attempt doesn’t work, well, our second attempt will.”

“And what if it doesn’t?”

“Then our third attempt will.”

“And what if we get captured doing it.”

“Then you can give me all the ‘I told you sos’ you want as we’re herded off to the Leviathan.”

“I DON’T WANT TO BE HERDED OFF TO THE LEVIATHAN!” I guess I must have shouted, because that’s when she punched me.

I almost punched her back. I wanted to punch her back. Maybe I should have punched her back. But I didn’t. I didn’t know why. I still don’t, really.

Oh, and then I ordered a ranca piss.

A bit of a warning, if you’re ever on a very important assignment where you must deal with literally every single dignitary the goblin world has, without standing out as someone who really should never be allowed in that kind of company, don’t have a ranca piss with breakfast.

I mean, it’s yummy and all, who are we kidding, every time I had one—which wasn’t often—it felt like there were new flavors being invented right on the spot. Maybe even a whole new way of tasting. It was just the most amazing thing ever.

But yeah, it packs a bit of a whallop, and well, I tend to get a little giggly when I’m tipsy.

“Oh, god,” she said. “That was a mistake.”

“Was it?” I asked.

“Yes, it really very much was.”

“I don’t think so. I think it was just the thing to take the edge off. See, I’m not all cranked up about whether this thing is going to work or not am I?”

She sighed. “No—”

“Right then. We’re gonna go do this and it’s gonna work and those assjacks are going to get what they have coming to them.”

Then I giggled.

Then I heard myself giggling.

Then I snorted because I heard myself giggling.

Then I laughed out loud because I heard myself snorting.

“The hell are you laughing at?” she said.

“Assjacks is a fun word. I think I’m going to use it more often.”

“Yup,” she said, “Mistake. Big mistake. Horrible. Huge. Absolutely gigantic. Size without measure.”

“Pshaw.” I said.

“We are so screwed,” she said, shaking her head.

Tomorrow to be precise...

If you are looking for good life advice, one thing I can offer you is that you should never let yourself become trapped on top of storage racks in a warehouse while surrounded by stinky, icky colored zombie producing mist.

It's a bit specific I suppose, but I think it holds true for everyone.

Okay, Zombiemart Part 4 is written and it's looking like the story will wrap up in 5 parts. With a bit of luck I'll have the first draft completed this weekend leaving me 2 parts ahead of my publishing schedule.

Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday
http://www.eoghann.com/comic-book-review-star-wars-1-jason-aaron-john-cassaday

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm comic book fans have been waiting for Star Wars to return to home.  The very first licensed Star Wars comics were produced by Marvel so there is a nice symmetry to this, though we shouldn't dismiss the fine work done by Dark Horse with the franchise over the years.

So how does the new Star Wars #1 stack up against previous comics? Is this a must buy, or just another cheap cash in?

So I've read Marvel's Star Wars #1. 

Currently trying to decide if I have enough to say about it to justify a full blog post.

The History of Science Fiction Part 12: 1960 - 1969 Books
http://www.eoghann.com/the-history-of-science-fiction-part-12-1960-1969-books

Finally it's done! 3,000 plus words makes it the longest installment so far and even then it's very much just the highlights of the decade.

We finally reach the 1960s in my exploration of science fiction and again due to the amount of activity I will be splitting this decade up to cover different media, starting here with books.

Beyond Pulp

By the 1960s the pulp magazines that had supported the genre and surfaced so many authors were largely gone. Science Fiction magazines had transitioned to a digest format but there were far fewer of them, around 6 in the US during the decade. They continued to publish significant stories (including the first publication of Dune as Dune World in Analog) but paperback... more »

Working on the 1960s portion of The History of Science Fiction it's interesting to me how big the change is from the 1950s. I've read a large portion or at least a representative sample of 1950s science fiction.

However it seems that the New Wave really wasn't much to my tastes. I have read only a fraction of it, and enjoyed even less.

Also... god it takes a long time to add all the links. I really want to be done with this post today.

Not going to happen though. I'm tired and there's a sinus headache developing.

On the plus side images have been added to The History of Science Fiction article so all that's left is the links.

The Fountain of Fair Fortune - Hogsmeade

Universal Studio's Harry Potter areas are absolutely packed with little details that just add to the pleasure of visiting the Wizarding World. Like the books in this shop window.

In fact this was one of the elements that could be triggered by the new (and expensive interactive wands). In this case causing the book to animate.

Sadly we found the wands to be overly picky and you had to do the movements very precisely to actually trigger things, which was a source of major irritation for our 9 year olds.

Still, it's very cool when it works.

Book Review: Archer: Book One of The Long Game
http://amzn.to/1ukmYEy
http://www.eoghann.com/book-review-archer-book-one-long-game-richard-rohlin

The second story I'm reviewing for the #GreatIndieReviewProject is Archer: Book One of The Long Game by Richard Rohlin (and edited by Benjamin Feehan). It's a pulp styled superhero novella full of costumed heroes out for justice. It's also the first part of a larger series and as such there are a fair number of unresolved elements, but the story as told here does feel reasonably complete.

Basically what we get is the origin story of Roger Fitzooth and how he changes from a spoilt playboy into a costumed hero driven to bring his father and his company down.

I realize you're probably sick of updates about how long The History of Science Fiction is taking... but I'm suffering... so you're suffering.

I'm now pushing 3000 words which will make this the longest entry in the series so far and I've had to prune books and authors brutally to get it down to this level. But I'm still not done.

Anne McCaffrey is the biggest name missing right now. But there are also several fantasy books that deserve at least a nod. Hopefully later this week it will be ready to publish.

Firefly Vinyl Figures From Funko POP

How Many Books Do You Have On Your Want To Read List?

I use GoodReads to try and keep track of books that might interest me. It's not a 100% foolproof because sometimes I see something or hear something and forget to add it. 

As of right now though there are 198 books on my Want To Read List. What about you?

Shoot The Train

When talking about Disney people generally focus on the big rides and latest additions, but sometimes it is the older stuff that gives the most entertainment.

Like Tom Sawyer Island in the Magic Kingdom. It's frequently overlooked because you have to take a raft ride to get to it and because it's basically "just" a play area for kids to run around in. It's a great place to take a break though because it's nicely shaded, there's plenty for kids to do and the fort itself is amazing.

One of the really nice touches if you are in the fort is that you can go up and look through the slits to see the train from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad go past. There are rifles placed here and you can happily shoot the train.

It's a small thing, but my sons found it hugely entertaining.

When Is It Okay To Correct Spelling/Grammar?

TLDR: Correcting spelling grammar is welcomed when feedback is requested or for my fiction. For casual social media posts or comments, absolutely not.

Okay, probably time for some clarification on my position on this one. Because there are a couple of significant exceptions.

I've previously taken a very strong line (blocking) on people who feel the need to correct spelling on my (or other people's) posts or comments. At best it does nothing to move forward any actual discussion of the ideas posted. At worst (and I've seen this frequently) it's just an exercise in showing off. In either case it's basically rude.

Social media is not a means of formal publication. It is more closely akin to casual conversation, and how often would you correct people's grammar in those circumstances?

Now, on to the exceptions:

1)  When I post my fiction, pointing out errors is entirely legitimate and helpful. Depending on what stage in the process I'm at I may not seem terribly bothered about the error you've spotted (short version I pay little attention to spelling/grammar errors in first draft material because it will change anyway), but I appreciate being made aware of them.

2) If I ask for feedback. In which case I am specifically requesting that this sort of stuff be pointed out.___

Oh boy Part 12 of The History of Science Fiction really is going to take forever. It was a busy decade. I've just briefly covered Vonnegut but I haven't touched Samuel Delany, Ursula LeGuin, Harlan Ellison, Roger Zelazny and assorted others.

Just weeding through to pick out the truly significant is slow going.

Campaign Cartographer

I love fantasy maps,and have ever since I first opened up The Hobbit.
So I'd love to come up with some justification for getting my hands on the Campaign Cartographer software.

Unfortunately my current writing project is set in the real world so it's a bit of a stretch. But wouldn't you like to be able to produce maps like these for your stories?

Has anyone used this or similar software?

SEVEN STONES: Part Two

Continuing my swords-and-sorcery serial.

Missed an episode? Catch up here: http://goo.gl/2qKiGh
Prefer a wider format? Read the episode here: http://wp.me/P2J09w-9TG

Previously: Plagued by dreams of a looming threat, Reverend Absolution Kobb has travelled to the forests of the far north. While staying overnight in a village inn, two youths attack him in his bed. He drives them off, but is awakened next morning by accusations of assault...

Anessa rested her right hand on the butt of her slung crossbow, and drifted behind the crowd, keeping one eye on Whistler Duffin. Stubby fingers loosely clasped over his filthy apron, the innkeeper seemed have settled in until the entertainment was over.

Tremaine Aycock and his equally creepy son, dragged Kobb out of the inn. The crowd shifted forward slightly. Seeing her chance, Anessa sprinted for the side of the inn. Pressing herself against the rough wood, she tried the kitchen door. As usual, Duffin had been too lazy to set the bolt.

Treating the filthy boards like untested undergrowth she slid across the room and peered into the tap room. Aycock’s ranting echoed through the open door, but there was no one in sight. She crept along the bar to the cash chest. A padlock, spattered with rust and other substances, lay beside it.

She gripped the lid and lifted. It creaked open, releasing a draft of stale air. Freezing in place, she strained her ears. Aycock’s shouting continued without pause.

Crouching lower, she peered into the chest. A bundle of cloth with a sword hilt sticking out one end lay next to handfuls of hunks and the bone chips some villagers used in their place. She raised the edge of the cloth.

The weave felt greasy on her fingers. Kobb’s sword and an object of crystal, sweeping metal, and carved wood, shaped like a crossbow without the arms, lay within. Remembering how nervous the sight of Kobb had made her father, and how he refused to explain, she pulled on her gloves before lifting them out of the chest. Resisting the urge to inspect them, she slid them to the sack of food that she had throw together while her father was opening up.

She paused and then added a few strips to the sack. Duffin might not have been part of the plan, but he had let it happen, so Kobb deserved a refund. Easing the chest closed, she crept out the kitchen door and around the back of the inn.

The smell of rotting straw hit her as she slipped into the stable. An immense black horse, looming over the shattered remains of a trough, stared at her. Studying its shoulders for warning of an attack, she backed out of the stable.

Once outside, she exchanged the sack for her crossbow and headed for the front of the inn.

“This man laid hands on my son,” shouted Aycock. “If it weren’t for Duffin’s forethought, he would have killed us all.”

Anessa dropped to a crouch as Aycock turned back from the crowd. The angle wasn’t right. A few of the east-siders were behind him. She resisted the urge to shoot anyway.

Aycock pointed dramatically at Kobb and strode forward. “I say we hang—”

Anessa caressed the trigger. The bolt skimmed Aycock’s belt before spending itself in the front of Goodie Weaver’s house.

Aycock’s advance stuttered as the impact jolted his hip and his belt gave way.

“Ain’t fair to hang a man without a trial,” said Anessa, cranking her crossbow. “Particularly when he ain’t done nothing wrong, and you ain’t law here.”

Aycock clutched at his breeches. “You could have—”

“My Anessa’s a good shot,” Lambert Tanton called from the middle of the crowd, “but even she can’t hit something that small.”

The older man whirled around as the larger part of the crowd burst out laughing.

Kobb’s saddlebag thumped to the ground. Osraed Corless sidled away, trying to merge into the crowd of east-siders.

“We can’t let violent outsiders take over the village,” said Aycock. The east-siders nodded in support.

“I reckon Reverend Kobb was leaving anyway,” said Lambert. “Ain’t no need to stir things up.”

“Lambert’s right,” shouted Goodie Weaver. “And about leaving things be, too.” She added a gesture to make sure no one missed the joke.

Kobb stepped away from Dereck Aycock, seeming not to notice when Dereck’s grunted in pain. Sweeping his saddlebag up, Kobb strolled towards the inn door.

“Got your stuff,” said Anessa, patting a sack slung over her shoulder. She headed towards the stables. “We should get a move on, before they try something.”

Kobb tilted his head.

She held her breath. Surely he couldn’t turn her down now.

His eyes turned less flinty. “Agreed. Although, Falcon might have his own ideas.”

Finished strapping on the fragile-looking tack, Kobb leapt into the saddle and offered her a hand.

She swallowed hard. The forest was dense in places. It made sense to go on foot. But he wouldn’t let her go with him if he thought she was afraid. Watching the horse for the slightest twitch, she stepped closer and let him swing her up behind him.

The beast’s back rolled underneath her as it stomped out of the stable. She wrapped her arms tighter around Kobb.

Kobb nodded to the dispersing crowd as they jolted to the north gate, apparently unconcerned by the horse’s attempts to throw them.

Glad to replace the air of the village with the scent of trees, she tried to match Kobb’s movements. “So, where are we going?”

“Don’t know, but I will when I get there.” Kobb pulled Falcon to a halt. “There was mention you had my kit.”

Anessa unclasped her fingers from his cloak and half-tumbled to solid ground. She handed the sack up to him. “Dad heard them planning it last night. Didn’t seem right, and I didn’t want you thinking we were all... like that.” And it let him see how useful she could be. “Put the food you wanted in there too.”

The scent of fresh bread and sharp cheese that her dad would probably miss come lunch wafted up as Kobb reached in and settled his weapons in place. “Seems there’s a few strips slipped in here too.”

“Duffin slung your stuff in his chest with the money. Didn’t even lock it. Seemed right to take something for how they treated you.”

“There are Blessings enough we do not need to take from others.” Kobb dismounted and stacked the money on a rock. Pausing for a moment, he removed a strip from the pile and dropped it in a pouch. “That said, an unlocked cash box is not a safe.”

He peered at the shadows clinging to the edges of the path. “I am grateful for the company. But I got the feeling your father didn’t approve of—”

“Since Mum died, he gets a little worried when I’m out, but he don’t really mean it. And might be better to avoid Aycock for a few days anyway.”

“There’s sense in that. If Aycock’s the type to chew over a slight, we’ll head on a ways before I eat. No reason to tire Falcon though.” Taking the reins loosely, he pointed down the track. “Lead on.”

Anessa peered sideways at the horse. It seemed to be ignoring her for the moment. Keeping an ear out for changes in the sounds of small animals, she lead the way along the track.

A few miles later, she pointed out a clearing near the path. A thrush bounced across the leaf mould before flitting into a tree. “Seems a good place to take a break.”

Kobb nodded, and unslung the sack of provisions. Breaking a loaf in half he passed her a piece before doing the same with a lump of cheese.

She propped her crossbow against mossy rock on the far side from the horse and sat down. The damp ground made it hard to tell, but it smelt like the rain would hold off.

She was licking the last crumbs of cheese from her fingers when terrible howls rang out from several directions. The thrush continued its song.

She snatched up her crossbow. “Eaters! But they never come this close to the track.”

Peering around she tried to spot a target, but—although the howls became louder and more frequent—the shadows seemed too still.

And then the rain of spears began.

ZombieMart Part 2: Assault on Supermart 13

We left our hero trapped by a dubious looking (and malodorous) green mist. How will he escape?

If you missed the first part then you can read it right here: http://www.eoghann.com/zombiemart-part-1-night-shift and this part can also be found here: http://www.eoghann.com/zombiemart-part-2-assault-supermart-13

I watched the slowly spreading green mist for a moment as Bethany continued to tell me just how unpleasant she found the smell to be. The fog spread out slowly, hugging the ground as it did so. So it was heavier than air then. As the cloud grew, the stench grew stronger confirming the obvious connection between the two.

Several other blue clad employees appeared, no doubt also looking for the source of the smell. They hung around looking confused and useless, probably much like I was, until Maggie arrived to take charge. By this point the fog had grown noticeably, if still very slowly.

“When I find out which of you jokers did this, there will be hell to pay.” Maggie muttered, glaring at each of us in turn. “Now clean it up.”

I felt my mouth go dry. Sure it was probably just some sort of smoke bomb. That made sense, right? But my Spider-Sense was tingling. No, wizards don’t actually have a “spider-sense”. Shame, it would be useful.

“Now!” Maggie grabbed a brush and shoved it into the hands of the nearest person. I’m not quite sure what she thought he was going to be able to do with that. He didn’t really seem to know either, shuffling forward and half-heartedly pushing the brush into the smoke.

Which is when things went straight to hell. I watched as the dirty yellow mist swirled around the shaft of the brush and then surged up it and along the man’s arms. He cried out in surprise, dropping the brush, but by then the smoke was all over him. In seconds he was completely obscured from my sight. He coughed and flailed around trying to wave the gas away, but it didn’t work. Everyone stepped back in alarm.

It’s not very noble I realize, but if you had just seen this you wouldn’t be rushing forward either. Moments later the man slumped to the ground. or at least I assume he did because the smoke settled back down to floor level. We all stared at each other in shock. What was this?

I took a faltering step forward, thinking that I should pull the man out of that stuff, but then remembering what had just happened to him. I was trying to think of a discrete way to try and disperse the gas when the man rose to his feet again. This time the fog stayed swirling around his feet. But that didn’t give me much comfort.

There was a dead eyed look to the man’s stare as he moved towards me. He mouth hung open and I could see drool running down his chin. His movements were slow and strangely stiff, but he was coming towards me at a steady pace. I backed up nervously.

“Hey Dale, you okay man?” A concerned colleague reached out and touched the man’s shoulders. He turned slowly, his attention switching as he did so. He let go of the breath I hadn’t realized I was holding. But my relief was short lived as Dale lunged akwardly for his colleague, burying his teeth into the man’s shoulder and knocking him backward into the swirling fog.

That was when the screams started.

Almost as though it was reacting to Dale’s attack, the mist surged and spread out suddenly swirling around the feet of several more staff and spreading rapidly up their bodies. I already knew what was going to happen, I didn’t need to stand and watch.

Turning, I grabbed Bethany’s hand and pulled her into the narrow aisle between the racks. She let me pull her, but stared at me in shocked confusion.

“Climb.” I shouted. It’s possible I was just a little bit terrified at this point. I didn’t wait to see if she had understood me, I just started climbing the steel myself.

The racks are so close together that you can actually move from side to side like a ladder and that’s exactly what I did. Working quickly up to the second shelf and then turning round to make sure that Bethany was following. Repeating the process we climbed rapidly up to the fifth and final shelf, a good 20 feet off the ground.

Bethany looked pale and her breathing was ragged. I couldn’t tell if it was from the climb or what she had just witnessed. Fortunately the top shelf was relatively empty and I was able to walk along to the end to get a clear view of the scene below. It wasn’t pretty.

The green fog had now spread across most of the warehouse floor now and wandering amongst it with that stiff legged gate and those blank faces were at least a half dozen of my fellow Supermart 13 employees. As I studied the scene looking for any easy exits I heard screams that sounded like they were coming from the front of the store. Whatever was happening, it was spreading, and I was stuck on an island surrounded by that green fog.

I'm curious how many (if any of you) read my #TheHistoryOfScienceFiction  series? I just cleaned up the short introductory Part 1 and gave it the lovely new logo I came up with.

The reason I'm asking is I get very, very, very little feedback on them. Which is particularly unfortunate because I've always seen them as a framework to be expanded on with additional details.

Okay so I've implemented a couple of tweaks. The S & F now integrate with the title, I've also given them a slight italic slant which I think gives a slight feel of movement to the logo.

I also removed the beveling from the text because at smaller sizes I just felt it was making things very busy and fussy. Simple generally seems to be better.

Of course if I acknowledge I'm happy with the logo I'll actually have to finish writing the latest post...

It occurred to me that since I had now published 11 parts to my History of Science Fiction, maybe it ought to have a logo.

So I've been playing around. Not sure I've quite got what I wanted yet.

I... I think I may have a font addiction.

They say acknowledging the problem is the first step but in this case I'm not so sure.

Augustus is such a pretty font, it has a classical feel to it. Serious, historical. I think I need a bit of that...

Jump to 7:15 and weep for humanity.

The moon's a planet because things live on it. 

Or maybe its a star...

So, um, yeah... listen to QVC try and work out what the moon is! If the video doesn't pick up at the right place skip to about 7:15 to save your sanity. ___Jump to 7:15 and weep for humanity.

What Other World?

If you were transported to another world, one based on a book, movie, comic, tv show or song (basically any media) what world would you like it to be and why?
