The Dome - Chapter One

Posted by StarMountainKid , 30 August 2014 · 271 views

I walked out the front door of my shed and faced the morning. It was hot as usual. The rains had ended a month ago, and now the prospect was for dry weather. I kicked the ground, and dust rose to my ankles. “Oh well,” I thought to myself, “another summer.”

I looked out across the village. Sooty smoke was rising from various tin...

Some Boring Stuff

Posted by StarMountainKid , 10 August 2014 · 241 views

One of these days I’m going to finish that ‘Void’ story I started.  The way my mind works I can only think about one thing at a time. See, I’ve been busy with other interests, like my cats and restoring my old BMW and riding my 10-speed bike around the neighborhood.

That’s three things, but I think about these one at a time....

The British mathematician G.H. Hardy visited a hospital to see the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan:  “I had ridden in taxi cab number 1729 and remarked that the number seemed to me rather a dull one.  "No," he replied, "it is a very interesting number; it is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two...

The Great Cosmic Void - Chapter Seven Three voices are heard speaking at once. One is saying, “This is not where it’s supposed to be!” Another says, “No, it should be over there!” The third voice says, “I like it here better. It fits well here.” “Well, leave it there then, but when we can’t find it later, it’ll be your...

Into The Great Cosmic Void - Of My Mind

Posted by StarMountainKid , 22 June 2014 · 217 views

Due to various brain malfunctions that I have had to live with all my life, the exciting conclusion of this story will have to wait until next week.

I’ve actually written the chapter, but I don’t like it. The only part I really like is Zarkor’s explanation of how he met Beethoven one day while studying Earthlings and his influence on...

Into The Great Cosmic Void - Intermission

Posted by StarMountainKid , 14 June 2014 · 192 views

The next installment of The Great Cosmic Void is coming soon, I promise. I’ve been a little distracted this week, so I’m still writing it. This is my excuse for not putting it up today.

Or, alternately, Zarkor has been a little distracted this week, so he is late in relating this adventure to me. This is an alternate version of how these...

Into The Great Cosmic Void - Chapter Five More absurd nonsense, which is after all, the best kind.


As the glowing orb grows brighter, Zerak, Zarkor and Cloney drift away from the Viewscreen in fear. “Zarkor!” Zerak shouts, “Man the Death Ray! If this thing attacks, fire!”

Zarkor quickly drifts to the powerful weapon’s control panel.

“Ready,...
