ORIGINAL FICTION: "An Unguarded Moment"

Randall Anthony Schanze's picture

I've written and/or co-written seven stories thus far this year, and I think this is the best one. A half dozen other people have told me the same thing.

Anything more I say about it would spoil it, so please do check it out here. That's me doing a rather faltering dramatic reading. (Mental note: don't attempt such things when you're gassy. You have to keep stopping the camera, and even when you're not belching you tend to randomly break words in half or use odd diction)  


(Vaguely)SCIENCE FICTION BOOK REVIEW: “The Fourth Bear” by Jasper Fforde (2006)

Republibot 3.0's picture

It is a little-known fact about Cucumbers that as they grow they can filter Deuterium and Tritium from groundwater and store it in themselves in ever-greater concentrations. This isn’t a problem ordinarily as Deuterium is harmless to people and cucumbers are, on the whole, pretty small. However, if a cucumber were grown to a weight of exactly fifty pounds, it would have reached critical mass and would explode like an atomic bomb. A thermo-Cucular Bomb.
