a monologue by Sean M. Kozma

A rather normal looking male, appearing somewhere in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties, dressed casually, stands center stage.

MAN: Okay, first things first, and I really can’t stress this enough — We. Don’t. Sparkle. Got it? I have had to put up with a lot of fucking Magic Necro bullshit over the years, but that one really takes the cake. Stephanie Meyer can just kiss my entire ass.

What did you think I was going to say?

Anyway, I know there’s already plenty of haters out there, and I don’t want to come off as some kind of hipster, but my hate is legit so you Twihards can just shut your cake holes.

Next is the sunlight thing. I do not burst into flames when the sun comes out. Don’t be ridiculous. What the hell do you think…

Our defense is about as piss-poor. We…

Cool short(ish) story by my friend Ken Patton. That he wrote for Eclectic Voices.

Eclectic Voices

by Ken Patton

As the fire roared deep, warm and bright, Benedict sits as close as he can stand it, marveling at how warm his toes are in their slippers. Hearing a contented sigh, he looks down at the cooing toddler snuggled warmly in his arms, fast asleep. Noticing a flicker at his ear, he brushes away an insistent fly that keeps buzzing around his head. Waving his hand a couple of times, the fly loses interest, and flies away. Looking around the room, he notices that one of the windows is open. Looking at it for a moment, it slowly closes shut. Hearing a creak from the other direction, Benedict looks over just in time to see his father head towards his bedroom. Hearing his father’s door close, Benedict turns his attention once again to his slumbering daughter, though the allure of…

Very good article in the latest edition of Eclectic Voices (Halloween Edition) by my friend and co-coordinator Chelsea Sutton.

A thought from Eclectic Voices Coordinator Chelsea Sutton

I took a class once on horror films (Yes…I took many odd classes in college.  Money well spent.)  We spent a lot of time watching clips from Texas Chainsaw Massacre and analyzing the Scream franchise, and even though the whole thing wasn’t quite as shocking or gruesome as what comes up when you do a Google search of “morgue” (I mean, Jesus, that might have been a mistake to do on my work computer), I came away with a solid understanding of how the horror genre plays out in our lives.

(Side Note: the horror film class was taught within the German Department…for unexplained reasons.)
