Excerpt From Cusper Rides Again

“Promise me one thing,” I said to Gadget.

“What’s that?” she asked.

“You won’t get us arrested,” I said.

“95 dollars?” Dr. Silas Martz hooted.
I stared at him and said nothing.
“You’re serious,” he said. “That’s it? That’s all the money you have? Nothing in savings? You have to have savings. At least two grand for an emergency. Something.”
I sighed.
“Seriously? Or are you just being melodramatic?”
I shook my head and said, “95 dollars.” Read more »

Tomorrow Never Works (or, The Glass is Half-Broken)

By

Cusper Lynn

All my life, I’ve been plagued by the notion that I can influence events. That through action, mind-set and commitment, I can, against all opposition, achieve my intended desire.

Despite an education that has taught me that the mind is the background noise of existence, that all action is futile, that the question of free will and determinism comprise doctrinal matters, I’ve clung to this premise of freedom. Read more »

My Beautiful Suicide By Atty Eve

atty Eve

For the sake of disclosure, I will preface this by saying that I met Atty Eve through the random circumstances that I tend to meet authors.   These are online groups, forums, and associations, which are focused on the ever changing landscape of publishing in the 21st century.   Atty and I struck up an online correspondence and I’ve followed, with interest, the launch of what I consider to be an entirely original and genre bending book, My Beautiful Suicide.   Read more »

Blake Morgan was not happy to hear from me. It was late, he had a life and he didn’t need a damned wild goose chase. So, I decided to drop the proverbial bomb. Read more »

by

Cusper Lynn

A car is nothing more or less than a means of conveyance. I don’t regard a car as desirable and I don’t have a covetous nature, particularly in the area of cars. But for the second time this afternoon I was forced to draw comparisons between my circumstances and those with whom I’m involved professionally.
“Damn it, do I have the shittiest car on the planet?” I thought. Read more »

Life’s Roller Derby; or The Hits Keep A’Comin’

By

Oppressive humidity and the full force of the late afternoon sun were bearing down on me as I walked the two miles back to my Gulf Gate Drive office.

“This isn’t the New York Public Library reference desk and I’m not some sort of damn search engine,” Blake Morgan complained after I gave him the three names.

“Blake,” I said, “I’m about to give you the story of a lifetime. I just need to know who I’m dealing with.”

“The FBI, so you say.” Morgan was typing away furiously.

“That’s why I need you to tell me everything you can about those three names and Liberty Reserve,” I said, trying to catch my breath.

“What’s wrong with you?  Are you having a heart attack?” Blake asked.

“Don’t I wish! Unfortunately, that’d be too convenient,” I said, feeling another stab of chest pain. Read more »

“You did this on purpose!” I shouted.

The allegation was met with a stony silence.

“At this point, with everything on the line, you decided this is the time to throw a power play?” I resumed. “I kept up my end, did everything I said I would but you said, ‘Screw you Cusper, time for paybacks.’”

I paused, but there was no response, no admission, no denial, just silence. The silver Saturn Ion can hold a grudge like no one else I know. Despite the oil change, the seat cover and the new hub caps, it had not forgiven me for our argument in the driveway when I had stripped out its relays. So it sulked and I was forced to call a tow truck. Read more »
