Damian Does The Featured Page

We asked Damian to select some work for the featured pages and tell us about his choices. This is what he had to say:

I’ve roamed through the writing pages to pull together a list of authors and stories that have impressed, moved or amused me! Among them lurk dark visions, grand imaginings, wonderfully emotive language and some whimsical funnies :)

I’ve chosen authors who have not been featured before, and kept my selections (mainly) to short stories.

Magic Hour – by Jamie Fraser
A bleak future view, and just how much can people take?

Indeterminacy 205 – by Indeterminacy
A cute yet surreal story that grabbed my imagination.

The Free-Wheelers – by LeislEgan
A cute story of a disgruntled pet wanting to ‘put down’ its owner. The opening line is brilliantly funny!

Orwell That Ends Well…- – by agfish
This story has a bit of length, but it is well worth the couple of minutes to stop and read! Ponderings on Orwell, boy meets girl, and physics string-theory all combined into an interesting story.

At First Glance – by pjoseph
I found this piece to be hypnotic; a wonderful use of language to create a rhythm that carries the mind.

whip it – by ravensnarky
An interesting story of the feelings around a boy-meets-girl encounter.

Tales from After: Parts of a Whole – by Gayla Drummond
Welcome to the front line of the future war. The US Mage Corps help regain ground against the undead horde.

Journey Home – by Cailean
An angel left injured on the Earth tries to find her way back to Heaven with help from a dark stranger.

The Seven Wonders of the Apocalypse – by fleece
A man on a journey of hope in a world ravaged and broken.

Hallways of Hell – by Michelle Rogers
A new employee in the corporate jungle that is Hell in the 21st century battles to understand how the system works.

by Chase Carr-Braint
My sole image selection is writing themed, and cleverly done!

I hope you enjoy these stories, and have a look through the rest of their writing.
