Larry Knight tapped the computer lab's smart board and couldn't help but smile at the collective "Oohs" and "Aahs" that rippled through the class as a large, shimmering cube materialized above their heads. He tapped the board again, and the same shimmering light erupted from its stylus, encircling his hand. Now for the true pyrotechnics. He stepped onto the sensor array directly beneath the ceiling projector. Immediately, the glow from the stylus spread up his arm, to his head, then all around his body until he was engulfed in bright yell...

Chapter #2 Bennu Rising Christian squeezed his eyes shut, fully expecting the Toyota Tundra to smash him to the pavement, smearing his body into paste, and crushing his beaker of plasma balls into a coruscant fireball. But none of that happened. He wasn't exactly sure what had happened. Only that the mid-morning chill and smell of wet snow had been replaced by a warm numbness and the faint scent of curried lime. And though he had leaped, he still hadn't landed. His body had stopped falling but hadn't touched the ground. Maybe it would help if I opened my eyes. He did, but whether it ...

Chapter #1 Fresh Start “Mr. Meadows? Christian? Young man…” Tap, tap! Christian looked up from the visitor’s couch, startled. The university president’s executive assistant, Doreen, glared at him, all impatient eyes and thin lips, her arm stretched across her desk, and her testily tapped ink pen aimed at his chest. He’d been lost in thought, admiring the dappled pattern of light reflected in the textured glass of the president’s outer office door. It had been that or die of boredom while he waited to be called into the inner office. He’d gotten there on time, but had been ...

Manga Monday

There's a lot you would expect this week: RWBY; Battle Angel Alita ; Black Butler (issue 149! At what point do we just stop counting issues and just go by the year?) But there are also some surprises. For example, I didn't expect to see Wolverine, but there he was in the search, holding an Infinity Stone of all things, so gotta include that. Along the same lines, Korra, daughter of Ang, the Last Airbender, makes an appearance. Thought that storyline was over, but what do you know? Here it is in print! High School DxD, Yona of the Dawn, and élDLIVE round out the list. The moral of the stor...
