Dialogue Competition Runners-up


by Chris Bannor   They towered above us, blocking out the sun in their magnificence. We tried to fight, but how do you stop a creature so massive it engulfs your house with a single footstep? The government made mechanical monstrosities to combat the invaders, but the damage grew worse. The aliens came to subjugate, […]

13 Drops of Blood – Launches 14th February 2021

This is an industry of rejection and to be successful, an author needs to be able to never throw in the towel, no matter the hard road ahead of them.

Few who saw it would know what it was, but to the trained eye, a fallen angel was unmistakable. Hell would not welcome such a creature, so newly […]


by Chris Bannor   For three days my brother and I ran.  We screamed, pushed and pulled, and fought until we were free.  We were both drained, and the house had seemed safe enough.  Distant enough. They crept in while we slept. My brother opened his eyes moments after me and I could see the […]
