They Call me Crazy short story by the Blacksheep

 The following is a short story written by Blacksheep at the PAF, I thought I would see about showing it to more people. You can find his original post here.

"A few weeks ago I was bored and feeling creative. So I hashed together some stuff from old poems and weird feelings and opinions I possess. It's nowhere near finished, and it's definitely not fluid, so feel free to nail me to the cross if you feel confused. This is not a day-by-day story, by the way. Enjoy, and don't be afraid to criticize. You won't hurt my feelings.

'They Call Me Crazy', The Journal of an American Detainee

A short, tan man in dirty coveralls fiddled with a ring of keys outside of a small quonset hut. After a moment of struggling with the lock he managed to open the door. Once inside, he secured it and set a piece of rebar across two brackets on either side of the wall beyond the threshhold.

He knelt by a desk and turned on a portable radio and turned up the volume; the signal was not very clear, but it played the classic rock he appreciated. He hummed along to Buffalo Springfield's For What It's Worth and sat indian - style, taking a Zippo and a Lucky Strike cigarette from his breast pocket. He put it to his lips, ignited the coffin nail, and after replacing the lighter felt around on the floor of his cramped quarters for a spell.

With his fingertips he tugged at a floorboard. It was jarred from its place after a few seconds of jostling that had obviously been perfected after years of practice. The board was carefully lifted and placed aside to reveal a hole nearly a foot deep and two feet across. From it he took a wooden stationery kit and a battered ammunition can. The kit was placed on the desk above and the ammo can beneath it.

He opened it and removed a small book wrapped in plastic along with a pen. The book was unwrapped and placed alongside the box. The point was pressed to the first page.

15 April 2030

My name is Stanley Shawe Kelly. I was born in San Jose, California on April 15th of 2002. Today is my birthday. I am twenty eight years old and live in Energy Camp 'Great Basin' outside of Ely, Nevada where I am a custodian at a school. I am known as citizen 332-13-8936 (F).

My wife and three children are with Jesus. I miss them every day.

We are called bigots because we protest executive overreach.

We are called traitors because we question authority of the corrupt.

We are the enemy and the enslaved.

In 2022 President Lee Chavez was elected under a Democrat - Republican unity ticket formed as a coalition against the growing threat of a movement known only as the 'Liberals'. This political movement was outlawed and put on the federal terror watchlist shortly after the election after a nationwide investigation of members resulted in seizure of goods and arrests for purported domestic terror activities. These activies included, but were not limited to firearm ownership, stocks of a week's worth of food or more, and 'radical' reading material.

To make this possible, a committee headed by the Department of Justice and the Chavez Administration initiated an executive order called the 'Police Actions and Powers Act', or 'PAPA' for short.

PAPA put every police agency in the United States under the direct authority of the Department of Justice, which as a body of the executive branch could provide the administration with unlimited ability to exercise its will in the name of collective safety and security.

They took me away from my wife and children after I was laid off and could no longer support them. All of our tax dollars went to the undocumented folks anyways. I got placed in Great Basin and was given a job through the camp's lottery system as a janitor. Guess it didn't matter that I'd spent a few years doing IT work beforehand. That's just how it works - piss poor idea.

I do not know where my family is but I get a letter every month saying they are 'okay'. I fear only the worst.

Stanley turned to the last page of the journal. He had read what was written here before nearly every day.

One day you can write about your adventures in this book, and you can tell me about all of them.

I love you, buddy. Happy birthday.


Below the message was an old polaroid of a him as a child with his mother and father along with a two dollar bill. He closed the journal and put both hands to it. With a long, pained exhale, he carefully covered it in its plastic wrapping and placed it in his breast pocket. The stationery kit was left in its place and the ammunition can was brought up to his lap.

He pulled on the lid of the container and produced a parcel in a manila envelope. The envelope was opened and he placed the object wrapped in an oily rag on the table gently to avoid making too much noise.

The rag was carefully unwrapped to reveal a revolver; a British Webley Mk. VI that his great grandfather had brought back from the War as a gift to his son - Stanley's father."

Wanted Mutant Poster

I got this a couple days ago, just now getting to post it. This is a wanted poster from the Mutant Hunter series by Stephen R. Cox. Be sure to go check them out!!


I found this a little while ago and forgot to post it. is a FEMA run preparedness site. I haven't really gotten very deep into it, but it is a tool fellow preppers can use in arguments against those that don't prep if need be. So I thought I would just link it incase you all haven't seen it yet.

Detroit, forgotten but not

It may seem like I'm piking on Detroit with all the post's I've linked to it lately about it's very public problems, but that's not the case. Detroit is simply getting more and more interesting because it is fast becoming a fallen giant. At one time it was a car production giant, now more than a few factories are closed down. There are so many abandoned and decaying homes there from past riots and money wows that it's just so fascinating to someone like me. Detroit is second only to Flint Michigan on the top ten most dangerous cities in the US, and crimes rates are still going up. With the city trying to save all the money it can it's laying off it's police, which in turn will lead to even higher crimes rates. I finish this off by saying so long Detroit, hope things get better.

Detroit: The Dying Giant

Detroit is rapidly becoming a abandoned city, and if it continues it could one day be a American Pripyat in not to long. Currently to save cash they are turning out the light in certain areas to try to get all the remaining people into one area. The city is already filled with abandoned ruins from past riots as well as failed ideas and dreams. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the city in the future. Not much to say on the subject other than that but still Detroit is basically the closest thing to a PA setting here in the US.

The Judas Syndrome

This is my first ever review on the blog so I don't yet know how I'm am gonna do everything. But what I can tell you is that I won't be rating things, I'll try to give honest reviews of how I view whatever the thing is I'm reviewing. I will try to pick apart whatever it is that I am reviewing to get out the bad and the good. That being said I hope this helps people decide whether or not

So a little while ago I was contacted by Michael Poeltl to do a review of his The Judas Syndrome Trilogy. This is the first review of the first book for which the trilogy is called, The Judas Syndrome.
 The book center's around 14 collage age men and women that survive a nuclear apocalypse and are just trying to survive, while high and drunk of course. Along the way they are constantly attacked, have to deal with death of members both caused by enemies without and within. The book use's religion as a central theme for whats underlying everything, but doesn't do it in a way that goes down hard(this is what I am getting at least so far, it could be the I am wrong I'll need to read the other books to find out). If your really against religion you may or may not like the book, but I myself was able to read it without cringing(I'm a deist so ya)so I think most people will be able to as well. While I don't want to give any of the book away I will say that I found the book to be worth the read if your looking to add to your Post Apocalyptic or "PA" genre of books.

If your interested in the book here is the website for the series and I encourage you to take a look. Rebirth the second book in the series can be found here. I will be doing a review on it later on as well as the third book.
