The Good Fight

by Kilmo

Every step can be red,

If we let it,

And that rage will eat us up,

Make us forget,

That people,

Are just people,

A rubics cube,

With no one word answers,

That bullets can ever solve,

As they travel,

On their pain bracketed way,

We’ll forget that,

And who we are,

As we gnash our teeth,

At the unfairness of it all,

Like we’ve suddenly found,

The tooth fairy doesn’t exist,

Why should the haves have?

 And the have nots not?

They’ve got fuck all,

It’s unjust,

Not right,

That some should starve,

And graft,

Whilst others sleep on feather beds,

And have cream in their tea,

What a world, ey?

No karma,

No guiding hand,

No moral principal,

That shapes it all,

Beyond the lies we tell each other,

To keep a bleaker truth from damaging our day,

Howl and froth all we want,

And we might even be better for it,

But in the end,

We make our own,


What If We Are All the Same Person? — Joseph D. Newcomer

Just redid this old post as a podcast with some bonus material. Listen in the Spotify player below the text. Thanks for listening. What if we are all the same person, but we just look and act differently based on a multitude of superficial, external, and situational variables? What if the real point to existence […]

What If We Are All the Same Person? — Joseph D. Newcomer

“Thin Skin” Horror by Kilmo

My werewolf story has appeared in The Chamber Magazine.

The Chamber Magazine

The tall figure in the drab olive parka grimaced as another gust of freezing drizzle slapped into his face. Five hundred miles from the Scottish Highlands and the weather had followed him like an old friend. Ben gave the whistle he’d borrowed from the P.E. department a blast mildly surprised it still worked with all the water in it.

“You, Jaxon, isn’t it?” he scraped wet hair out of his eyes. “Play by the rules, or I’ll send you off.”

The youth who’d just thrown a punch at his opponent gave the teacher a surly look and went back to chasing the ball.


Ben felt a tug on his arm.

“Wait son. Not everyone can be on at the same time. You’ll get your turn.”

“No, sir. That’s not what I meant. Whose dog is that? Is it one of those fighting breeds?”

“What dog? Where?”

Ben peered through…

Rural Fiction Magazine is Now Accepting Submissions

Because I currently live in a rural area, I have decided to experiment with opening another magazine: Rural Fiction Magazine. The idea came to me while I was driving to the pharmacy in the nearby (about 17 miles from my residence) town of Dumas.

While I enjoy immensely working with The Chamber Magazine, it does have a disadvantage or two. The primary disadvantage is that the local populace does not seem to be made up of the type of people that are drawn to dark fiction. But then, can you name a community that is drawn to dark fiction? To me, they seem more the type of people who would be drawn to mainstream or literary fiction, particularly that with a bent toward farm life, agriculture, hunting, etc.

Yes, I am living in the Bible belt. The nearby (five miles from my residence) town…
