Outcasts – Epilogue.

Faustus.   Faustus lay on the basement floor, his acolytes all dead; he was the only one left alive. Alive but unable to move, unable to do anything. Why? He thought. We, I did everything right. He was asking himself this question all the time, what had gone wrong? “Who says it didn’t work?” A voice said. The voice was female, cocky, confident, and full of humour. “I do not suppose it ever occurred to…

Outcasts – CH9

The bulldozers worked brushing what remained of the house and its contents to one side like a child’s toybox’s contents. Everything lay upon something else. The houses long tale now a wreck of wood, plaster, plastic and metals.

Outcasts – CH8

Outcasts – CH6

The car powered down the street. Its wheels shrieked at every twist and turn. It had taken only four people to cause the car to cry out in pain.

That had damaged the windscreen, point one to the human body. The second and third had…
