SERIAL: KANSAS, CHAPTER 18



Matthew McLean's hi-tech, neo-cyberpunk espionage thriller KANSAS makes a welcome return today! Hatcher and Dragon explore Dragon's futuristic casino, while the agents Durham and Nixon look on....

It wasn't the first time the casino had suffered a hacking attempt. Far from it. But usually the attacks, at least the exciting ones, were more subtle and used less obvious methods. Still, like the financial nets, casinos had their own drawing power as a target of the console jockeys, from experienced hands looking to siphon credits into the casino for free play on the casino's behalf to hard-line crooks looking to offload credits from the casino into a numbered account somewhere, to the inexperienced and fresh hackers who were just trying to test their toolsets on targets that couldn't bring serious corporate or legal power to bear should they get wise to the attempt ...READ 'KANSAS' CHAPTER 18 NOW!

On a personal note, as Editor I'd like to publically extend my thanks first of all to K.P.G. and Keith for their patience and dedication in keeping this serial running (nearly) on time, and for taking a chance on us as their publisher. You handled the teething problems (which were all at our end) patiently and professionally, and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with you. Looking forward to Season 2!

I'd also like to thank our web ninja Cook, who handled the tech side of things and designed our comics section's navigation and feel. Thanks guys! Onwards and upwards!

FLASH FICTION: A MAN'S WORK


Another old hand (excuse the pun) here at Weaponizer, Vertigo Jones, returns with a flash fiction that manages to echo both Dostoevsky and steampunk in under a thousand words. 

Leniel rises, and finishes donning his attire, puts on his pants and silk jacket in a burgundy so dark as to be black, fastens his tie. It snakes perfectly, through his fingers, almost magically into place under the old man's watchful eye. He would now sweep up the tools of his trade, His phones, identity papers, the sliver of plastic that he would explain was a key, and his Grandfather, as though in fugue would hold upto the light, bewilderment mapped out in the rugged crevices of his face. The computer, phone, a slender briefcase laden with items he would carefully request the names of, and immediately forget ...READ 'A MAN'S WORK' NOW!

FICTION: WE ARE SURE WE CAN SEE THEM


Will Couper has been with us from nearly the beginning of Weaponizer, and we're proud to present a brand new full-length short story from him today. It's a horror piece, the setup of which will be familiar to viewers of 'Most Haunted' and shows of that ilk. All together now... 'Mary loves Dick... MARY LOVES DICK...'

He found himself looking at her eyes and how wrong they were. It was hard to stop from staring, so he kept taking short, furtive glances and he couldn’t quite pin down what it was about her eyes that bothered him. The more he looked, though, the more he was convinced that something was amiss about her ...READ 'WE ARE SURE WE CAN SEE THEM' NOW!

FLASH FICTION: A DEMON, EMBRACED


Master of the micro-horror tale, Neal Turner returns with this disturbing little Flash Fiction... 

Its eyes fell upon mine with the intensity of a bright blue spark, burning into my retinas. The deep carvings, the grooves and creases around those eyes tightening and loosening, contorting and writhing, a mass or squirming eels ... READ FLASH FICTION: 'A DEMON EMBRACED' NOW!

NONFICTION: THE MASON LANG FILM CLUB PRESENTS 'THE MATRIX'

Our regular film critic, occultist and expert on The Weird, Ian 'Cat' Vincent returns with an essay on The Matrix!

Remember when The Matrix was cool? Before the hyperreal religion of Matrixism, the pop-philosophy tomes, the disillusionment of the two awful sequels, the weak computer games, the thinly-populated MMORPG, the bullet-time tricks used in every ad and cheap spoof that came down the pipe... remember how great it was to have a hugely popular movie that pretty much everyone had seen and most of 'em had liked, that gave you a way in to talking about Gnosticism and perception and postmodern reality and awesome kung-fu flicks and anime to anyone? Didn't last long, did it? But while it lasted, it was a powerful thing.... READ 'THE MASON LANG FILM CLUB PRESENTS TRHE MATRIX' NOW!
