Short Story of the Month
“Did you ever consider converting to another religion? I would ask my colleague, we help ourselves like this sometimes.”
Beads of sweat appeared between devil’s horns.
“Time sure is bad, am I right?” said Gaspar mockingly, “No, I don’t want to convert.”
“But we made a deal!” insisted Devil.
Being of the Month
The Indians of the Mono tribe from the northwest of the US, one of the inhabitants of the Great Basin, know this terrible demon of terrible origin. He was supposed to be a man – some say a woman – who had eaten his own meat for famine.
He was not always successful. And he was not afraid to admit it. Extreme modesty is not one of the characteristics of Sherlock Holmes, however neither are arrogance and superciliousness. Looking for his failures is made harder thanks to the loyalty of his chronicler, although even doctor Watson wrote about some of them. They completed Holmes’ character and made the picture of genius detective more human

Welcome to my world. For the longest time I couldn’t think of right name for this place, so I left it without one. Amongst things you can find here are attempts of science fiction and fantasy stories, my collection of gods, bogeymen and monsters and also articles about things that had me interested, be it for a while or for years. (There is more of this, sadly not in English but in Czech, on www.fext.cz)
