Mind Games  or Scobie In WonderMirrorOzland : a Psi-Kicks story by: GF Willmetts

A road of gold. A city of verdigris. A nearby forest. Flanolla Scobie thought she was in Wonderland and looked around for the white rabbit. At least she thought it was that rabbit. It could even be a talking lion who could turn biped. Why did he never trip up on his tail? So much […]

The Problem With Fantasy: an article and story by GF Willmetts.

I might have mentioned in passing over the years that I don’t particularly like fantasy, mostly because it’s so easy to cheat and not explain how things are the way they are. Any fantasy novel or even other media source that can explain its reality in a satisfactory way rather than rely on ‘magic’ and […]

An alien object was spotted heading into the Solar System and a space mission diverted to rendezvous with it. The discovery that it was a weapon of war than of peace shook everyone. Whoever the aliens were, […]

Mister 2 Per Cent: a short story by: GF Willmetts.

I looked down at the fallen landscape that once upon a time I would have called my home planet Earth. What was a few centuries compared to an invitation to an alien world? I’d gone with open arms. Relativity is was it was. I’d aged only a few years but several centuries on Earth. I […]

Alien Roots  :  a short story by: GF Willmetts

From space, our Earth looks a delightful blue from the oceans with a touch of green from the vegetation. It doesn’t show the effects of how we badly polluted it with plastics and other assorted materials that we are slowly sorting out. With all of that distracting us, the discovery of an interstellar message board […]

A Few Nips In History  :  a short story by: GF Willmetts

You know how it is. People think werewolves are monsters. They even fortified the myths against us. As if we need a full moon to become…well, large, hairy, teeth and claws. It’s just a lot easier to wander around at night and grab the odd meal. Hey, you can’t accuse me of not eating the […]

‘For a reality that isn’t stanya…stable, it’s lasting a long time’, MacKensie commented, watching Callane Oberon eat her diet of grubs. Her knack for finding restaurants that could feed them both also ensured he had a descent steak and vegetables so he couldn’t complain. He was nursing a black eye after interrupting a mugging. Callane […]

Moxie   :  a short story by: GF Willmetts

I studied the gravestone. The words give my master John’s name and the length of his life but anything else is a touch of algae now as I’ve waited so long. Not in the way humans do it, my sense of smell was more acute than that. The gravestone was only a pointer. Below me […]
