New Release Schedule – Friday Night/Saturday Morning

Hi everyone. I know some are waiting for the next chapter and I don't want you to think I have forgotten. With my new work schedule, my writing times have changed. I have two major projects on my plate so I'm moving my release dates to Friday night/Saturday morning to make it easier. This means the next chapter will be released very soon.

Paradox – Chapter 38

A lone shadow stood at the top of the wall of the house when Michael opened his eyes. The crickets chirped and the occasional sound of a bullfrog echoed in the inky black night. Michael pulled his weary body off the remains of a rotten mattress and joined Maze.“Couldn’t sleep,” the old man asked with sincerity. Michael looked around with his Enhanced eyes, absorbing the situation while marvelling at the total destruction. “The fog lifted an hour ago, but I’d guess we still have a few hours until sunrise.”“Shit, Maze,” Michael gasped as he realized the house they were squatting...

Paradox – Chapter 37

With each step, the crunching rocks below the trio grew louder and each foot forward dragged along the ground a little more. Occasionally they passed a car still on the highway, but all of them had run out of gas years ago and the people inside probably tried their luck on foot, and likely perished in the nearby forests. Very few freeways and interstates still operated in the Midwest, only the most heavily traveled around“You know, I could just fly up ahead and find you two another car,” Alaina said without looking at Maze or Michael behind her. “We are in the middle of nowhere surrounded...

New Chapter on Friday

Hi everyone. I know I've been absent for two weeks but I'm traveling for work. The company recently restructured so everything is chaotic at the moment. I had two courses to deliver last week and one more to deliver this week, plus I'm meeting with the new CEO tomorrow before coming home. Hopefully things will calm down enough for me to return to a regular writing schedule with chapter padding.Thanks again for all the support!

Paradox – Chapter 36

“Bring in the prisoners,” one of Herr Metall’s many sycophants shouted once Jury departed.With a wave of his hand, the viewing monitor on the wall broke apart and reformed with the wall. It was a small display of his power, but none in the room doubted Herr Metall’s mastery of his element and his ability to inflict pain and suffering to any that opposed him.Two large tanks walked in, one holding Hot Rod, the other leading Screaming Eagle into the center of the room under the bright lights. Althought both wrapped in chains, but they were not needed. Neither prisoner was suicidal enough...

Paradox – Chapter 35

“Where did you dig up this fossil, Alaina?” asked Justice as he released Michael and stood up. Scott rubbed his hands down his legs to dust them off.“You know who this is?” Alaina asked surprised. Scott did not take offense. He was not the most studious of agents.“Of course, I do. He’s the bastard that was my dad’s best friend and partner before he decided to go vigilante and betray him. Am I close, Maze?”With a push of a button, the Nanoblade retracted back into the hilt before Maze slid it back in the holster hidden on his belt. “No, I think you got most of it right.”“And...

Paradox – Chapter 34

The brown branches and the green leaves were only blurs as Justice zipped between the trees in the forest in pursuit of his target. He missed running outside the city, but avoided it since the disastrous mission to Crawfordsville last year. He still had the nightmares about the mission, mostly with him running in pools of blood and the JTF arresting him for murder. He deserved it, he guessed, but no one would care even if he admitted it. The JTF would never prosecute him and his mother would make sure the latest family stain stayed out of the media. He had a privileged life so why did he feel so shitty...

Paradox – Chapter 33

“Solid Copy is down,” someone yelled through the interal aircraft channel.Like everyone else, Scimitar leaned towards one of the external camera monitors as it swiveled forward and tracked dust cloud from Justice and Solid Copy. The aircraft was in a gradual right turn to bleed off speed so the task of looking at the monitors was a littler more difficult than usual. He noted mentally that an elementalist Enhanced must have created that barrier of ice. Khaleel could barely make out Solid Copy’s unmoving body in one of the other camera images at the base of the ice wall.“There,” said...

Paradox – Chapter 32

“What the hell are you doing?” screamed Bill Grayson at his sister as she raised the ice wall.As Solid Copy collapsed at the base of her semi-transparent, ten-foot high wall, Amanda Grayson lowered her arms. The ice wall cracked and crumbled to the ground, some falling on the moaning and still prone Solid Copy. Valkyrie could create ice in seconds, but it would take a few hours until it melted away.“Don’t worry, the boy’s alive,” assured the wind to Alaina as she looked around, “but we need to hurry if we are going to catch Justice.”“Michael?” she asked looking around...
