The Small Denominational Order of Loose Change

Loose Change Banner

Dividing line -- they're everywhere

The Small Denominational Order of Loose Change has a slowly-evolving Chapterhouse.

One of the more recent evolutions is that it has mirrored, or nearly so. As of this writing, the version you are currently looking at is the most up to date. For a version of the site which is banner-add free but never updated, click on the banner or follow this link to our new virtual domain.

Loose Change is still that stuff making noise in your pocket, annoying you until you need it for the parking meter, the bus token, or have enough scraped together for a snack from the vending machine.

Loose Change can also be given to beggars, or tossed into the cases of street musicians.

In short, it's handy stuff that you don't think about until you need it.

This site contains some of the strange tales gathered by the Order, with new stories added every so often. Some are true in sprit, others in fact, several in both sprit and fact.

In the meantime, rattle the change in your pocket meditatively.

Or read a few of our tales.

Loosely non-fiction

A tale of the young God Emperor
A prank.

How a ritual was born
The secret history of the Ritual of Liking

A gekko in the house
Sometimes it's the simple things that make revenge so sweet.

Grounding the fire

The writing on the wall

Homage to the King in a kangaroo scrotum.

Yet another prank.

More like real Fiction: Brother yiB's stories

The Man Who Went to the Magic Market to buy Death -- With the original collages.
A legend from the place where things can be made into ways, and ways into things.

The Dreaming Detective
A noir detective story, and then some. This is the Little Sister's personal favorite.

The Squeak
Funny. Wierd, but funny.

Brother yiB has his own web page now, Oneirodynia.
It is a beautiful site, and full of more of his fiction, essays, and art.

These are a compendium of odd documents to be perused at your peril.
We do not, however, consider such peril to be a bad thing.

It is, incidentally, a node of the Z(cluster)
