Info -- What is this?

This is 'De-Flux Stories', a De-Flux project. De-Flux Stories is a place where people can freely publish short stories and other compact fiction for other people to read. De-Flux Stories is also like a phoenix risen from the ashes of Catatonics. Call it a reincarnation. And, like with most reincarnations, there are both similarities and differences between the two.

Catatonics was founded back in 1999 and kindly hosted for two years by the Digital City Foundation ( In 2001 however the Digital City Foundation decided to go commercial and there was no longer room for non-profit websites like Catatonics. In two years Catatonics pulled more than 2000 visitors from all over the world. I hope some of the spirit of Catatonics lives on in De-Flux Stories and, of course,
