The building is a good fifty stories tall. The office I need to breach is on the thirty-seventh floor. The elevators inside use fingerprinting and voice-command and keycards, and for all my skills I have yet to develop one that’ll fool a computer into thinking I’m someone I’m not. The stairways are equipped with emergency exits. I don’t want to trip the alarms; not quite yet. I still need everyone inside the building.
Hey everyone. As I'm sure anyone in the US already knows, the Kavanaugh confirmation went through. I'm still kind of reeling. I mean, I expected it, mostly. But... a part of me hoped.

Hey everyone! I just realised that I've never actually published some proper fiction on this blog. Is that something any of you would be interested in? If so, please like/comment on this post.

Hey, everyone. As always, I have the same apologies and the same excuses for my absence. I'm sure you're all tired of hearing it by now, and frankly, I've realised that it is a terrible idea to try and ensure that this blog updates regularly. It won't. It never will, in all likelihood. I'm just … Continue reading Persistence

Guess who's decided to stop giving a fuck about politics and start concentrating on their writing???? Not me. Definitely not. Whoever that is, I admire and fear them, but they are not me. That being said, I know that I can't let my fears about the impending collapse of the world stop my work, because … Continue reading Submissions
