The Long Stairs
What if magic was a gamble, literally, and the fae held all the cards? What would you bet, when your hand goes bust and your last chance is burning away into the smoke filled air? Andrew introduces us to the world of the Long Stairs.
In this near-future dystopian SF short, Andrew explores the toxic intersection of love, poverty, and corporate lock-in. What if the only person that remembered your life and loves was an android that required daily 'pills' to survive? What would you give up to keep your memories alive?
For this Saint's Day in honor of love, Cody T Luff delivers a poignant SF tale of an unspoken connection that persists beyond death. Words can only get in the way, and besides, if you have a neural implant you don't need them.
No one keeps the Old Ways. Now the sacrificial meat for the pie is ethically sourced from volunteers, vat-grown, or plant-based.
And no one has seen a god in years.
In this SF Horror piece, Cody bakes in a new holiday, the meaning of community, and the consequences of forgetting the Old Ways.
