FREE SHORT STORIES
El is a Spaceship Melody“Part of Beneath Ceaseless Skies’ fabulous science-fantasy issue, this is a fantastical space…opera?, where a crew plays music togehter in order to fuel the living crystals power a spaceship. And that’s just one piece of the gloriously inventive world-building in this story. Broaddus’s prose is a marvel, and he masterfully builds a unique world that is vibrant and strange and full of life. To me, there’s a bit of a Star Trek feel to it all, but in the end, this story is like nothing else I’ve ever read.”Maria Haskins

At the Village Vanguard (Ruminations on Blacktopia) – “this story is “straight up blackity-black,” indicative of Maurice Broaddus’s singular voice. If you’re not already a fan of Afrofuturism, this will hook you.”

Super Duper Fly – An inversion of the Magical Negro trope … hehehe

Pimp My Airship – A steampunk journey.

The Iron Hut – A sword & soul story featuring Dinga Cisse.

Family Dinner – You thought your family dinner was awkward.  Try it when your family has been reduced to zombies.

Awaiting Redemption – People can claim a religious faith but use it strictly as a cover for their own cruelty (that has nothing to do with their religion). AUDIO ONLY

Orgy of Souls (co-written with Wrath James White). Twenty souls for his brother’s life is a price that seductively beautiful Samson is willing to pay. Twenty souls drenched in blood, powdered with cocaine and more than one kind of ecstasy. A fair trade for the life of a brother. A fair trade for the life of a priest. And everyone he meets seems so willing to give theirs away. Samuel’s faith often wavers. Diagnosed with HIV and in rapid decline, he hides his disillusionment in the rituals of the priesthood. But when Samson brings him the first blood-signed contract for a young woman’s immortal soul, the steamy world of high fashion male models and the quiet decay of a sickly priest begin to writhe against the realities of life, death, and otherworldly power. (Apex Books)  Chapter one is available as a free read.

 

 

 

Transform YouI Can Transform You.  From the dust of The Trying TimesTM, corp-nations have risen up in place of failed, and twilight haze dropped down in place of the sky. The economy fell, and the Earth itself shot heavenward, transforming the very face of the planet into an alien landscape with towers punching past the new sky into one of many unknowns. Soon after, the jumpers started raining from among the blue lanterns that took the place of sun and stars.  Mac Peterson left the employ of LG Security Forces and now cobbles together a life in the shadows of the great towers, filling policing needs for people too unimportant for the professional corp-national security to care about. His ex-wife, Kiersten, stayed behind on the Security Forces, working undercover. When she turns up dead alongside one of the tower jumpers, Mac pairs up with Ade Walters, a cyborg officer, to uncover who would try to hide Kiersten’s death among the suicides. Searching for the murderer of one of their own, Mac and Ade discover plans to transform the Earth and its inhabitants…plans that only started with the great upheaval and The Trying TimesTM.  (Apex Books)
