“The Whole Infernal Machine”


Kzine Issue #18 is now available for Kindle (with a print on demand option) via Amazon. It includes my story “The Whole Infernal Machine”, which is a Vonnegut/Kafka inspired piece of speculative fiction.

I’m not the best with words, but The Therapist tells me I should document my feelings. He even gave me an analog diary he calls a Moleskine. Every night when they put me back in my box, I’m supposed to tell it all my secrets. But I know better. There are no secrets in this place.

“What do you mean by that?” he always asks. “This place.”

“This place,” I tell him. “School. Church. Therapy…”

“What about your box, as you like to call it?”

“Especially my box. The whole infernal machine”
