The SIGI Chronicles #006 – Boom Shakalaka!

[Go To Episode 5] “Ummm… SIGI?”  Varma set down my carrying case, looked at the floor and twisted his fingers together.  He’d been anxious all morning as we prepped for the demonstration scheduled for later that morning. “Oh-oh.”  I got that old sinking feeling in my processors.  Two weeks old and I already knew Varma … Read more…

The SIGI Chronicles #005 – It’s Supposed to Work That Way

Go To Episode Four “So when are you gonna let me out of this friggin rig?” I stared at Varma expectantly.

Excerpt from “Lasater’s Lucky Left” in “Penny Dread Tales, Volume One”

     With an annoyed scowl setting the exposed part of his face into deep lines, Jake Lasater slowly returned his hot Colts to the holsters at each hip and waited for the thick white veil of smoke to clear.  He let out a long, resigned sigh and winced as he rubbed the shallow gash in his … Read more…
