The pebble and the blade of grass engaged in a lengthy discussion concerning continental drift.

Bugs Termagent razored his way efficiently into the space between the quarreling wolves. Raising his fist with its atrophied fingers into a gesture of dominance, he noted with satisfaction the wolves cringing and slinking away, lowered tails dragging along the pine needle carpet. ‘I would have sustenance!’ he shouted to his wife, Perennia, before taking […]

THE TEPID RECEPTION

June 3, 2017

Harleton Camber glanced down to reassure himself that the creases in his trousers were knifed perfection. They were.
