In the New Mexico desert on a road to Mt. Capulin Volcano, a service station's home to an assorted group just getting by. 
Under the Pegasus - Living for Tomorrow
Capulin Service lies just a few miles from the volcanic cone which provides guidance for travelers headed west. Or, maybe to the volcano for a visit. Maybe  to the mesa for a spectacular view of the land dotted with very old cones, or to Raton a western town nestled next to the Sangre de Christo Mountains. The collection of individuals passing through the doors of the station and Capulin Cafe vary in social status and heritage, but the common link lies with their desire for “better.”
Some carry scars of the past, others dream of their lifetime in a better place. While they wait for fate to extract them from the gerbil wheel; their lives unfold in typical fashion for an outpost in the New Mexico desert.
Narrated by one with nothing to gain, and no place to go, Under the Pegasus shares the needs of everyday people trapped in the cycle of routine

From Adelphi to Even, the dive into mystery deepens. Distinct characters thus different outcomes. Mixed in a cauldron of infidelity and deceit, raw, raunchy. Even nasty, The Cockney challenges your sense of decency. Framing it as Noir may be an insult to the genre. In this writer’s presentation an off track ride through ugly; there’s cause to ponder our true nature.
Meet Perry B. Maxwell, assistant comptroller for Panhandle Oil Company. Similar to Stan the Man, Perry meets a young heiress, this time on holiday in Mallorca, Spain. After a drug and alcohol fueled sex-a-thon they marry and produce a child. The Universe has kept things on the same path, except our male characters live two different lives, hence two outcomes. Perry Maxwell takes his sorrow to a gritty urban bar where people congregate for casual sex. Unlike the normal patron, Perry’s path does not allow him the comfort of one-night stands. Perry’s hate drives his angry soul. Retribution shall be his.
