Short

Gahd v. Saitman (2005-07-18) cover story short fiction allegorical political

There's waking up with a hangover in a strange place, and then there's waking up with a hangover in a strange place. An all night bender screeches to an ungainly halt in a neighborhood where half the folk wear red and half the folk wear blue, but the differences run far deeper than that. ...or do they?

World Domination (2005-10-10) cover story fiction

Why do they become supervillains, anyway?

Death and Taxes (2006-04-24) short fiction historical

Dying isn't usually the best way to end a day. John Henry hadn't seen the man who shot him in the gut, but it was just as well. The Good Lord wouldn't want him thinking un-Christian thoughts about any man, even if he was a Redcoat. (Originally appeared 2005-08-22)

Ramu (2007-04-16) short fiction fantasy

Immortality was, at first, a blessing. He could rally an army with a few words, and fight with them until most would collapse in exhaustion, even as his comrades aged beside him. When Ramu had outlived his last comrade, he found a cave deep in the mountains, far from the world. Why had the gods forsaken him, and left him alone?(Originally appeared 08-08-2005)

Emrys Koenigsmann
Emrys Koenigsmann


Emrys lives in the barren, wintry lands of the North, and spends his days hunting for the ever-elusive pizza-delivery-boy and trying to catch the vicious creature that keeps stealing his newspaper in the morning. He is usually unsuccessful at both, as it is hard to hunt and get to work ahead of rush hour traffic.

In addition to his (odd) short stories, that often say things that he didn't fully realize he was saying, Emrys is the author of the Of a Dragon Born serialized novel. He spends part of his free time reading, writing, playing video games, and wishing that he didn't need to waste eight hours a night on sleep. The rest of his free time he spends with his beautiful wife, his two dogs (Labrador/Husky mix and Doberman Pinscher), and four cats.
