NOCTURNAL Episode #35

We’ve seen Rex change from a bullying victim, the smallest and weakest kid in school, into a dealer of death, a leader, and the chosen one of Marie’s People. For nearly two centuries, his people have lived in fear of extinction, lived like insects in the dirt. How did they come to live beneath the streets of San Francisco?

NOCTURNAL Episode #34

Bryan knows of his connection to Marie’s Children, but he still doesn’t have any real answers. There is one place he knows he can get them: from Savior’s weapons maker, the grandfather/grandson team of Jebediah and Adam Jessup. Rex Deprovdechuk has taken his place as the the leader of Marie’s Children, but — like Bryan — there is much still to learn.

Vote on the Krakens helmet for THE CHAMPION

Galactic Football League Book IV is THE CHAMPION, and you can vote on the helmet in this YA / young adult series.

Junkies, sometimes teams update their helmets. Your favorite NFL team’s lid has likely gone through a few changes: some are dramatic, some are subtle. The Ionath Krakens are considering a helmet re-design for the 2686 season, and team owner Gredok the Splithead has decided to leave it up to you, the fan.

We’ve had problems with overzealous fans “stuffing the ballot box” in previous polls, so you have to have a registered profile to vote. You get one vote. We’ll check IPs if we have to (but we don’t want to). We love you all, but you’re crazy with the ballot-box stuffing, so get your one vote in and let the fans decide!

STEPS TO VOTE:
1) Sign into your account on this site (or create one by clicking here).
2) Put a comment on this post with one of the following choices: Current, Modified #1 or Modified #2

We’ll close the poll at midnight Eastern time on Sunday, June 22. The winning design will be included in the book’s text. Boom!

GoooooOOOO KRAKENS!

NOCTURNAL Episode #33

Rex Deprovdechuck is the chosen one, the “King,” or so he is told by his new friends Sly, Pierre, Sir Voh and Fort. They have taken Rex to a tunnel complex below the streets of San Francisco, and are about to introduce him to his true people — Marie’s Children. But before Rex can assume the mantle of leadership, he must face the current ruler: Firstborn.

NOCTURNAL Episode #32

Aggie James hopes to escape the nightmare factory far below the streets of San Francisco. Hillary, one of his captors, has promised him a way out. To let Aggie know the cost of failure, she showed him the the bloated obscenity known as “Mommy.” Aggie watched as Mommy took a groom, one Alex Panos, former tormenter of Rex Deprovdechuk. Now that this “ceremony” is done, Aggie will watch Alex suffer through “The Groom’s Walk.”

NOCTURNAL Episode #31

Rex Deprovdechuk spent his entire short life being ostracized, bullied, he spent it alone. Now, he has new friends, friends that call him King, and they are taking him deeper into the caverns beneath San Francisco to see his “Kingdom” for the first time. Aggie James is already there. Held prisoner for days in the White Dungeon, one of his captors — a woman named Hillary — has offered him a way out. Aggie is willing to do anything to see the surface again, or so he thinks.

NOCTURNAL Episode #29

The melee at Savior’s house left Bryan and Erickson both wounded. Erickson is in the ICU, but Bryan is not — is what Bryan fears might be happening to him actually happening? San Francisco Chief of Police Amy Zou and Polyester Rich Verde visited Erickson’s basement and saw the stuffed remnants of serial killers past. Zou announced to the entire department that Bryan and Pookie are now civilians: they are cops no longer. Rex met Pierre, Sly, Sir Voh and Fort. With Alex Panos in tow, Rex and his little friends are off on a new adventure.

SHOW NOTES
Happy Mother’s Day! I’m hanging with Ma Sigler this weekend, who is the inspiration for Ma Tweedy in the GFL stories, and NOT Mommy here in NOCTURNAL.

NOCTURNAL Episode #28

In the last few episodes, the bodies have hit the floor: Bryan, with a bullet in his arm … Erickson, with a knife in the belly … and Rex Deprovdechuk, shot in the stomach by Alex Panos. But Alex couldn’t finish the job, because just after he fired, the roof collapsed — as Rex passed out, he heard Alex’s screams.

NOCTURNAL Episode #27

Pookie and Black Mister Burns followed Bryan into the house of Jebediah Erickson, thought by some to be the vigilante killer known as “the Savior.” Pookie found the front door — thick oak with a heavy metal security bar — knocked right off the frame. While Burns stayed on the front porch overlooking San Francisco’s busy Franklin Street, Pookie went inside after  Bryan. He found his partner, and together, they entered the basement — something surprised them, and shots were fired.
