Plastic Farm : Sowing the Seeds on Fertile Soil

by Rafer Robers

Chester Carter has issues. He was abandoned as a baby,
raised in a haunted psychiatric hospital, has a
dinosaur-riding cowboy living inside of his head, and
just might be the most important person who has ever

Now, he sits in a nameless airport bar telling his
life story to a bunch of people who really couldn?t
care less.

These are the stories about Chester Carter?s reality,
and the people (a washed-up celebrity, a foul-mouthed
four-eyed demon monkey, a pair of zombie cops,
cannibal farmers, religious zealots, an assassin with
a heart of gold, an airline baggage handler) who have
to live in it...



Plastic Farm: Fertilizer

by Rafer Roberts

There are an infinite number of tales to tell from the
world of Plastic Farm. These are three of them.

April, 1972. Living on a compound surrounded by those
who have rejected the reality that modern society has
imposed upon us all, Jonathan Picanos has begun to
experiment with new forms of meditation and
self-mutilation. His friends, while recognizing that
Jonathan has become adept at his mastery over nature,
do not realize the depths to which he has gone. When a
new threat to their way of life emerges from the
shadows, will Jonathan?s mastery over reality save his
friends and family, or will he lead them all to death
and damnation?

April, 1997. Eliza Dorne is an assassin and, while she
is quite good at her job, wishes to retire. She has
completed what she hoped was her final mission, but
her employer (a man known by many names, but most
commonly known as The Reverend or The Smiling Man) is
not so eager to let her go.

April, 1994. Frank and Benny were two honest cops
killed while staking out the handoff of medical files
between a junky and The Smiling Man. Now they find
themselves resurrected and performing menial tasks as
an undead zombie-like janitorial staff.

Three seemingly unrelated tales detailing three
separate events that will reshape the lives and
realities of all who dare enter the world of Plastic
