Short Story of the Month

Near the Finish Line

Just a little bit further. Six steps, five, four and a half!
This is the place where I dropped it last time.

Being of the Month

Quote of the Month

"Can't you get another one?"

— L.Frank Baum. Scarecrow of Oz

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)
