What Gentle Women Dare

Liverpool, Midsummer, 1763 When Satan himself came to Lolly, she didn’t recognize him. She wasn’t on her guard—hadn’t been for years. Why should she be?

Poppies have never been my favorite flowers. Here they bloom all year long, if one can say a year in Hades, where no seasons pass, where summer never fades.

If I wasn’t playing make believe, I was writing stories in notebooks with […]

But What We Make: The Iterations of Sarah Connor

I love the Terminator saga with a sincerity often reserved for critically acclaimed or independent film. The first two installments are cinematic marvels that inspired genres and resound throughout pop culture: a stunning pair that played the long game, subverting expectations through evolutions in technology and character. But what I love is the story taken […]

Pistol Grip

You press the barrel of the Aegis-IV Longslide into your partner’s hole, and he spreads for you like he’s purpose-built for this very moment. Your spinal reinforcements are made to handle recoil, but you can feel the tension of him juddering up your arm as you hold him still, keeping him there, keeping him under […]
