Many things can happen when your brain is about to go to sleep. Five short stories by Ernie Howard to help you see... The Midnight Portal.

The Light Through the Water
If my father hadn't pulled me out of the water I would have stayed dead. Just before I blacked out, I saw the most beautiful light coming through the water. A light so bright and full of love it made me forget about death. Years went by and I forgot about the light. Things changed, I got older. People I loved saw their own light. And I eventually saw mine again. This is the story of my light.
The Light Through the Water

A World Without
The Future is Scary!

Anthony's wife Susan has lost her love. She takes long business trips, and talks in clipped sentences. The problems that Anthony sees in his marriage are not what they seem. They are bigger than the two people who can't seem to get back to where they once were.

At Norworld, we prolong life through A.I. We take away the suffering with technology.

"If the one person in your life you loved the most was there one second and gone the next what would you do? You would explore every possibility to get them back. Losing someone is a bone crushing, soul emptying experience, but now it doesn't have to be! At NorWorld, we prolong life through A.I. We take away the suffering with Technology." - Dr. Thad Feast

Singularity is near. The Droids are Becoming...

What really is consciousness? Is it what we can see, taste, hear, and feel? If that is what consciousness is couldn't we duplicate it with an Artificially Intelligent being? As humans we really are just computers, that walk around in movable meat suits. It's consciousness that makes up the person we are. Machines that are like us in every way will eventually surpass us, or that is the way it looks today. The age of quantum computing is just around the corner. A World Without is a quick peek into the future. This is book one of the Nor World series.

Walter is an odd boy. To say he is not like the other kids is an understatement. Being odd doesn't win you many friends, nor does it give you anonymity. Kids can be mean... Walter doesn't care what the other kids do or say to him, because he knows a horrible secret. Walter knows when the world is going to end.
The apocalypse is coming The only people that can save the human race is a young boy, and a mysterious man from the stars.
Walter is Book one in Ernie Howard's Apocalyptic Young Adult series.

Nothing can't be solved with the help of cold steel.

Halloween Decor
Never mess with your neighbor. Or his Halloween decorations.
