Cries to Kill the Corpse Flower

ISBN-13: 978-1950305353





Cries to Kill the Corpse Flower is a stomach slit by knives and guts spilled on the pavement. It is the organized chaos of a man on the brink of running, a man gasping for air in those split seconds his head breaks through the surface--a man who's realized you can't outrun yourself--told in the narrative arc of a Crow Crowned King and a Corpse Flower Queen in their castle in the suburbs.

Flight of the Ka in Space & Time #137

ISBN-13: 979-8664036831

Flight of the Ka is a speculative poem by Ronald J. Murray, appearing in Space & Time Magazine, Issue 137

Welcome to Space and Time magazine—the oldest continuously published speculative fiction semi-pro in print—since 1966.The #137 Summer issue is a miracle. Despite the pandemic, the social unrest, the shortages we've prevailed. A dozen authors, seventeen poets, and a small army of artists have worked together to bring forth stories that speak of other realities. Many of them echo the current one with eerie accuracy. Speculative fiction brings the unthinkable to the conscious mind and allows us to roleplay the effects of dystopia. In the summer of 2020 as misinformation and fear spread faster than the COVID-19 virus, these stories are vital. They demonstrate our future... and give us the hope we can survive it.
