Existential Terror and Breakfast by Rev. Fitz

An existential serial with cereal.

It concerns the moments that make breakfast too profound to eat. . . .

Boskeopolis Stories by J. J. W. Mezun

Rhymin' & Stealin'

Boskeopolis is an obscure city-state in the Verdazul archipelago in Orange Ocean–or, as other countries call it, the Pacific Ocean. It’s notable for its persistent violation o’ the laws o’ physics, biology, & economics—though, to be fair, real life doesn’t obey that last 1, either. As such, any inconsistencies within these stories should be blamed on glitches, for I’m ’fraid . . .

HOW TO AVOID DEATH ON A DAILY BASIS

The Cynic’s Progress

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 14, 2016: Sometimes, you just feel like reading something light and fun. This fits the bill.

EXISTENTIAL TERROR AND BREAKFAST

Extra Dark Roast
