They say you are never alone. They say you are always watched. They say the darkest corners are inhabited by your worst fears. My parents were always drunk, abusive, and just terrible in general. Around the time of my 6th birthday, my father had been...

The universe as we know it is understood by the various laws of physics and our understanding changes gradually as time goes on. Understandings change when there is new evidence or theories being confirmed. This is the universe we live in. It's largely theorized that...

Omnia cum pretio. Latin. โ€œEverything at a price.โ€ This is inscribed on a golden plaque inside the box. I feel I should have considered this phrase more carefully, and would if I had the chance again. My name is Vincent, and this is my suicide note. Iโ€™m not writing this...

I didnโ€™t feel like speaking to anyone. I spent most of the day in my room trying to relax by watching my favorite comedy movies. When that failed, I tried playing Counterstrike on my computer. That also failed. I simply couldnโ€™t stop thinking about my...

I live in the northern half of Georgia, which to those who are unaware, is full of hill country and mountains. The Appalachian trail starts in North Georgia, as do many of the tributaries that feed our major rivers. Around 100 years ago, as electricity...

May 25th, 2017. I think there's something growing in my bathroom. I live in what can best be described as a town house with my parents, brother, and cat. My room's on the second floor, as is my brother's, and we have a small bathroom, along...

The girlsโ€™ bathroom is haunted. That sentence was the sentence that tortured him. Not because it was true. But because every goddamn day of his life, that exact same string of words were thrown in his face at a high velocity by shrieking, sobbing, ecstatic in...

The cat slowly settled on the deck floor in the brightly lit room. Stretching his long body, he let out a giant yawn. Like his human companions, he was groggy and felt slightly sick from the remnants of the chemicals lingering in his system. Reviving...

Fire burns. It's a simple fact of life. Fire burns everything it touches in one way or another. This particular fire was being gulped down the throat of an overweight man in his late thirties. The man chugged the liquid like it was the antidote to...

The story I am about to tell will convince many that I am a madman. Others will only feel sympathy and not believe a thing. The tragedies that have transpired have proved that no man can escape destiny and fate, no matter how hard they...

Hyelophobia, also known as the fear of glass. This complicated word is the name of one of the demons that torments me, makes my fingers tremble and makes me want to sink far into the earth. Living in a culture where glass is so common-place...

It was January 27, 1977. I was on my way home from work in my 1968, half lime green, half rust brown GMC truck. It was lime green when I first bought the thing five years ago; I swear it lasted a mere twenty minutes...

Thereโ€™s this thing - a phenomena, really - called the โ€œMandela Effect.โ€ This lady, Fiona Broome, coined the phrase back in 2010 and itโ€™s some bat-shit crazy stuff, lemme tell you what. See, Fiona Broome swears up, down, and sideways that Nelson Mandela died some time...
