The next entry in our Author Spotlight series (this month we are featuring contributors to Cycatrix Press’s upcoming anthology, A Darke Phantastique) is Nameless contributor Sunni K Brock.

Her story “Out of the Blue, and Into the Black” is a fiction piece about a familiar author:

A Darke Phantastique“All that blue. Nothing but blue as far as the eye can see . . .

Bill gazed out of the window from his seat: 7A. He would rather have had an aisle seat, but the only ones available were in the exit row and at his advanced age he didn’t feel comfortable with all that responsibility.

As he downed the last of his orange juice, he couldn’t help but think about how many people would die if the plane . . . 

They’re right. I’m too morbid…”

Bill who?

“I was thinking about the title of an unproduced Twilight Zone script called “Dreamflight” by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, and it must have triggered something in my subconscious. While traveling to a convention with Bill (Nolan), I was sort of dozing and had this idea. The story just wrote itself as if I were watching it play out before me. I thought it was important to bring in colors and senses into the dreamlike quality of the story. And, yes, it is about Bill. All likenesses to people living or dead are entirely intentional.”
