Flash Fiction – Underling (From the Archives)

Elaya looked down on the bodies of her fallen foes with sadness. Is this what it feels like, she thought, to be a hero?

Flash Fiction – Shot to the Head (From the Archives)

Just because one is mechanoid and the other is carbon, does not mean we are not equal!” The speaker’s voice rang out across the square, dampened by the heavy rain. Fabia paid him no mind - even though she felt… Continue reading Flash Fiction – Small World (Stories on a Theme “Human”)
