La Serie V

By: Valentino

Siendo niño viajé mucho por toda América, y a decir verdad no sabría explicar el porqué de este privilegio, salvo que la mayoría de veces solía figurar como “invitado” en tales travesías. Fui, para no traicionar mi educación norteamericana, el centro de las “situaciones”, aunque realmente nunca deseé que fuera así. Debo reconocer que tuve la buena fortuna de haber estudiado en un colegio donde los estudiantes extranjeros predominábamos y eso influyó bastante en que me co...

-Tiene forma de cigarro –decía una. -Es enorme –argumentaba la otra. -Esa nave, o lo que sea, según mi cálculo, tiene el tamaño de una pequeña ciudad –agregó otro que dijo ser ingeniero civil-. Es una construcción imposible para que sea el producto de nuestra tecnología actual. -Jamás lo hubiera creído a no ser que lo haya visto con mis propios ojos –verberó una más cayendo al piso con las manos juntas-. Y ahora que lo veo, se siente como una experiencia religio...

Bruma

By: Valentino

El dolor no cesaba de martirizarme y otra vez volvió a mí el recuerdo de Míster Hastings. Con gran asombro, descubrí al Bombón Playero encallado cerca del aeropuerto de Roatán, isla abajo. Subí por la proa enterrada en la arena y examiné cada uno de sus rincones. No había rastro de Míster Hastings. Ya en la cabina, pude dar con la bitácora del barco. «Hace treinta años que cerca de estas aguas perdí a mi amigo Narciso Way en las fauces del Gran Segueta», estaba an...

El eco de las balas resonaba en las paredes de la cueva.–¿Sabe qué, profesor? ¡Vea qué triste ironía! Hoy me doy cuenta de que no sénada de la vida. Soy un completo ignorante de las cosas, a pesar de que me es-forcé siempre por encontrar la verdad de las mismas. No sé si usted alguna vezsintió y pensó lo mismo que yo, profesor, no lo sé, pero qué sensación más frus-trante la que se siente. Sí, y estoy llorando, profesor…, sí, así como usted me lorecomendó una vez…, cuand...

Hasán se contuvo. Humo y fuego podían observarse más allá del pasaje; supuseque los mercenarios no podrían encontrarnos, pues por sus gritos de algarabía,pensé que quizá celebraban el reparto de algún botín. Vi a Hasán adelantarsehacia la fisura.–¡Espera, Hasán! –le susurré agitado. Éste, dubitativo, se detuvo–. No temas. Yperdóname lo que te voy a decir, ya que contraviene tus creencias: nosotros notememos a las maldiciones. Tememos, eso sí, a las malas acciones de los ...

Tomorrow it Rains : All the Dying Flowers

By: Dylan Rush

In an apocalyptic Nebraska, where it hasn't rained in years, water has become a valuable commodity. At a time when no one can be trusted, 16-year-old Rabbit, is about to find out, just how far the government will go, to reserve resources for those they deem worthy- and for those they do not. Its up to Rabbit, and her father, to find a way to survive, in a chaotic world filled with thirst.

It’s been four years since the last rainfall graced mother earth with its presence. Crops have withered away, wildlife has diminished, and the world has gone crazy with thirst. I have been scavenging for water wherever I could find it- abandoned homes, and from the rubble of burned out buildings mostly, but it’s never enough. My lips are constantly chapped, and my skin is as dry as a lizard. I try to drink just enough to survive, because I never know when my next score o...

NumbaCruncha

1: Somewhere in Far North Queensland Towards the End of the Twenty-first Century. ‘Make sure there’s nothing left to salvage, or tomorrow there’ll be nothing left of you.’ The priest’s twisted smile, more venomous than his customary frown, underlined the threat. Ignoring the nervous nods of his sweating acolytes, he turned, raised an imperial finger in warning and waddled back to his limousine, slashing the air with his stick to ward off mute offers of assistance from...

As readers would expect from today’s trends, food was in short supply from runaway climate change, life support systems were overloaded with toxins, and ecosystems and the energy supply had collapsed. The sto...

“Wow!” said Edde. “What we learned about the bastards casually through our talks over the years makes more sense to me now. They acquired power stealthily and misused it to control humanity in accordance with how they saw the world, which was and still is connected to their brain structures. The world they see, the reality they act within, is reckless, selfish, cold and destructive, in contrast to our normal more cautious, altruistic, warm and creative reality.” “Yeah,...

The rain covered the sound of footsteps behind him. He did not shout for help as a strong arm grabbed him from behind and another blow hit him square between the shoulders throwing him to the ground. He made no struggle as his arms were pinned behind his back. A car pulled up and he was thrown headfirst into the backseat. A female voice commanded his attacker, “Quick give me his head.” His head was lifted from the floor of the car and twisted to give unobstructed acce...

It was pulsating on the monitor repeatedly at regular intervals. He went back to his seat immediately; diverted his concentration fully on it and realized that may be the sign of SETI’s dream coming through. .... He said “As human beings, we should respect each other more than anything. Now I could visu...
