Friday Flash Fiction: "Thrilling Heroics"

For the record, I imagine Dyna-Gent's costume as a cross between Black Lightning's and Union Jack's jumpsuits... plus a bowler hat.

Also, this is my 200th 512 story. I guess that's something of a milestone. Hooray, Zoidberg, etc.

Finally, on an unrelated note (except for the date): Happy Birthday to Aubrey!

Unable to transcribe message.

Going through our Google Voice history, I happened across this strange message from a couple of months ago. I'm pretty sure it's a wrong number. Can anybody tell me what he's saying (and in what language)? Just curious...

Friday Flash Fiction: "The Rule of Three"

I am not at #SDCC this weekend, but I am going to see Evil Dead: The Musical! tonight in Portland.

Also, the photo accompanying this week's story is a mannequin from Comic-Con 2009, promoting October Toys' Z.O.M.B.I.E. products.

So there.
