Peculiar Memories by Jason Macias

Most of the time, my days are as ordinary as the next guy's. Then there are days when something peculiar happens.

Most of the time, my days pass more or less like I imagine the days pass for other people. I work. I enjoy the company of friends. I daydream. I do laundry. Then there are other times when something peculiar happens. Not very often, of course, but frequently enough that I sometimes wonder about these occurrences and what they might . . .

Moondust by Stephanie Payne

By Believing, One Sees.

For as long as anyone can remember, there have been stories. Stories of fairies and dragons and witches and magic.

GOD IN THE MACHINE

Metal Monsters

By Miladysa, editor, author of Refuge of Delayed Souls

Something along the lines of Robby the Robot meets Star Trek. Just goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover nor a web fiction site by its home page.
