618: “The Screenplay” by Chuck Rakiecz, Et al



A collaborative story written by Chuck Rakiecz with contributions from Cynthia Lowman, Daniel Foytik, Mark Seeley, and Uhurina Swann.

A fun and unnerving little story that takes place during a Twilight Zone Marathon leads to a strange encounter for Daniel Edward Dunnmire, III when he’s joined by fictional versions of a few very well known writers interested in changing his destiny.

About the Author:


Chuck Rakiecz is the original “Analog Man,” a self-described semi-technophobe who pines for the pre-social media days of yore. He is a retired model builder for the museum exhibit and industrial display industry. Chuck lives in Pittsburgh, PA with his wife, Sue, and their feisty tabby cat, Misty.

In addition to his membership in Pennwriters, Chuck is also a life member of the nationally known, Western Pennsylvania Model Railroad Museum. He developed the concept and preliminary plans for the museum’s fictional, Mon-Valley System,” a 4,000 sq. ft. model railroad display, featured on WQED TV and national hobby magazines.

Chuck is currently working on a time travel murder mystery novel, “POINT IN TIME,” and acts as Coordinator for the Pittsburgh East Writers critique group. He is also a member of an informal critique group of former CCAC classmates.
