Monday Free Fiction Links

More great free fiction from some of the best sites out there.  And don't forget SF Signal for more free fiction links.

At Black Gate: “The Moonstones of Sor Lunarum” by Joe Bonadonna. Fantasy.
     "Long before the legendary cities of Cush and Erusabad were destroyed by war, the graveyard was old. No one knew how old the graveyard truly was, for the carvings on its headstones and markers had been long worn away by the hands of time, wind, and weather. The cemetery crouched with its dead in a hidden vale in the dark heart of Khanya-Toth, land of shadows, black magic, and creatures of the night."

At The WiFiles: "Captive of the Count (A Philip Marvel Adventure)" by Frank Hagelberg.
      "All was pitch black. This must be a dream, thought Philip. A moment back he had been at the playground in the neighbor’s garden, pitting Spiderman against the Incredible Hulk, and glimpsing into the rich light of a warm late fall morning. Am I blinking? As far as blinks go, this is a long one. And why is it so cold all of a sudden?"

At Silver Blade: "Altruism" by Molly N. Moss.
     JAAD-6 assaulters showed off strike maneuvers, making thunderclaps as they broke the speed of sound five times over. A small girl cringed from the explosions and clung to her father’s knee. “Take me home, Daddy,” she screamed to make herself heard. “Please!”

At Wily Writers: "Cineraku" by Donald Jacob Uitvlugt.
     "It was not a holonovel, where audience and performer were one, the viewer the solipsistic star of everything. Nor was it teleradio, with thoughts and emotions beamed directly to the brain. It was not a net opera, with everyone jacked into the same experience. His art was cineraku, and Takemoto was a master."
