Tatter: Chapter 29

Previous chapter The room in which Tatter awoke was brightly lit and devoid of sound save for the gentle tapping of busy fingers on the keys of a computer pad and the gentle hum of a portable generator. The walls were barren, composed of aged, yet finely burnished metal. Numerous pieces of medical equipment lined… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 29

Tatter: Chapter 28

Previous chapter Bioluminescent plankton basked the cloistered bar in dim azure glow from wall-bound tubes which ribboned the length of the square, low-ceilinged chamber. Blue-lit patrons sat around the semi-circular retractable table as drinks were ferried by server drones, payments automatically deducted from affin modules upon reception. Aecer Digest played across the numerous, wide wall-screens,… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 28

Tatter: Chapter 26

When he had satisfied himself he turned from the cranial statuary and beheld Hunter standing before his shack, furs girding… Continue reading Fides Quae Creditur: Chapter Two

Fides Quae Creditur: Chapter One

They stared idly from the outskirts of the docile, decaying hamlet of Kraevn at the misted distance of the declining wilds, and as they did, a chill wind swept in from the south, jostling their… Continue reading Fides Quae Creditur: Chapter One

Tatter: Chapter 14

Previous chapter The skytech adjusted her coat against the chill night air, fingers moving with practiced ease over the wires athwart southern block, connecting com-links and checking the mini-generators that kept the sector running. Her craft ejected a sharp, slow beep. Power low. End of shift. She pocketed her scanner and multi-ratchet and steered the… Continue reading Tatter: Chapter 14
