    The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

    | Dec 22, 2014 | Comments (0)

    In the 1960s scientists launched a quest to contact other intelligent life in the universe. (Some would say we have yet to discover intelligent life on Earth, but that’s another article entirely.) The scientists were hopeful that not only would extra-terrestrials be discovered but that we might communicate with them and one day meet them.

Graham Holmes has devised a more appropriate message for E.T.

| Dec 15, 2014 | Comments (0)

A 12 year old boy, small for his age, learned he gets more respect by posing and looking like a 16-17 year old girl. He did so well at it that he was able to pass as a girl to enter a co-ed boarding school. (See parts I and II of Patty’s Story) That is, he was able to pass until nature caught up with him. Forced to leave the school he didn’t know what would be coming next.

| Dec 15, 2014 | Comments (0)

Crossdressing detective Dawn Benedict was hired to investigate the murder of a woman in the restroom of a popular lesbian bar. The murder victim’s girlfriend hired Benedict since, as a crossdresser, she has a better chance of blending in with the bar’s clientele. In Chapter 2 Benedict started the investigation. Things didn’t go well. There was another murder — and Dawn was outed as a CD. In Chapter 3 Benedict found a suspect, of sorts. Will she survive Chapter 4 and catch the killer?
