The Shadow Author. 3
You can find the prologue and ensuing chapters here! Chapter Three The shadow author strolls leisurely towards the ticket barrier, pausing briefly when he spots a pair of armed policemen standing at the junction of the ticket office and the station’s concourse. The split-second stoppage is enough time for him to be mutteringly admonished by a few commuters who flow around him as if he were a sunken log in a stream. He carries on, calmly, knowing that armed police are often at the station and are nothing to do with him. Equilibrium. Far from appearing intimidatory to the rushing masses about them, expressions of boredom are draped across their faces as they vacantly watch the commuters queuing for their tickets or for newspapers that come with a free, large bottle of mineral water with varying levels of patience and the resignation at their day in, day out routine.
The Shadow Author. 2
Please find the prologue and ensuing chapters here! Chapter Two THE SHADOW AUTHOR opens his front door and steps out onto the grime-strewn stone step that marked the border between his indoor sanctuary and the cracked pathway that led to the real world, the grotesquely fat, pitifully scrawny one beyond his mind. A shadow, cast from the house’s rotting storm porch, was waiting to obscure his image from those roaming the morning world. He closed his eyes, knowing that he had just a few seconds with which to compose himself before the world’s elements swarmed his body. Polluted his thoughts. He spent these seconds feeding off the buzz of anticipation that was pulsating throughout his body. Letting this fraught and dangerous energy empower his muscles, his bones.
It’s Raining...Fish? Halibut-lujah!!!
It’s Raining . . . Fish? Hal(ibut)lelujah!!! Animals use various, distinctive methods of movement with which to get around: Monkeys swing through forest canopies. Fish swim. Frogs rely upon their prodigious hopping power; yet are somewhat outdone in the leaping stakes by kangaroos and their renowned, highly enthusiastic hopping ability. But sometimes animals defy their usual method of perambulation and are witnessed to travel in a rather more mysterious way; they rain down upon the land.
