Jonathan’s Recent Updates

“But he was going to wake in the cold on the porch, with the same dying heart he’d had all his life. And with his son’s severed head on his chest, staring at him. He was going to learn exactly what he’d bought for himself, for his family.”
Jonathan Moore, Close Reach

“It was so easy to cross over. To twitch her finger or bend her wrist and in an instant do something that could never be undone.”
Jonathan Moore, Close Reach

“She knew that if she tied this man up in a quiet room, gagged him so his screams wouldn’t block the other noises, and held a laser like this one to his eyes, she’d hear a low pop as the surface of his retinas flash-boiled and seared onto the face of his optic nerves. Ever afterward, his would be a world of pain and darkness and weird flashes in the shadows.”
Jonathan Moore, Close Reach
