Flash Fearsday / Expansion Joints, part 30: Plaguing Your Conscience?

Carried forward through pressure,
inexorably compelled,
reaching critical threshold, dispersing...
Spreads emotional contagions, too.


This is my response to part 30 of the Expansion Joints Challenge and to the October 6th 140-character Flash Fearsday horror challenge over at Lunching on Lamias.


  1. I've had things noospheric and biomechanical on the mind recently and this fits right in with both. Always something to meditate on.

  2. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I've recently put out an ebook of my writing, called 'The New Death and others'. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story 'The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune' and HP Lovecraft's 'Under the Pyramids'.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please let me know your email, and what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy. You can email me ( or reply to this thread.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.


  3. @Porky, I'm always glad if I can strike a few chords here and there, or at least resonate with ones that are already humming.

    @James, I e-mailed you. If I can read it on the web, that would be the easiest way for me to go. I used the first "Read online" link on the Smashwords page to read the excerpt, and that seemed to work fine.

  4. @Jennie: I didn't get your email. My email is news at apolitical dot info

    I'll send you a code to put into Smashwords which will let you read the whole thing online.
