Shoreless Ocean of Eternity

        Before the seas rose and covered much of the land and before the Great Chaos overwhelmed civilization on Earth, the State of Israel devised a plan to prevent the breakdown from even beginning to happen in the first place.
        A man of medium height and dark, receding hair stood back from the door and looked up at the imposing edifice.  The building was not particularly large, but it preserved memories of fear, death, and unthinkable horror.  Not a prison, but containing the memory of prisons, remembrances of prisoners.  He put the keys into his pocket and said to the young woman beside him, “It’s closed then.”

Shoreless Ocean of Eternity (9,880 words) has been rejected so many times that I finally gave up submitting it to other people's publications. It is a prequel to my novel in progress, Clouds Fall to Earth.  Read "Shoreless" HERE.


  1. The photo is of a section of a rusty toy truck from the 1930's or '40's illuminated by a laser. I found the truck in a old midden pile on our land.

  2. "Shoreless" did receive an acceptance by a publication, but I withdrew the story when on closer look I deemed the publication not up to standard.

  3. I have it submitted now at a place that could have a 12 month wait, and they DON'T allow simultaneous submission. Argh. I wrote to them and complained that this is way too long, and I think they'll make some changes.
