Freeditorial Long-Short Story Contest Entry - New Story!

So I've been a bit MIA, I know, and have (temporarily) abandoned my explanation of the Tree Language for work on another project. And now it is done! My big news of late is that I've entered the Freeditorial Long-Short Story Contest, which I heard about through Write to Done.

My story will be judged according to two different metrics: the quality of the writing as well as the downloads it receives. So far, my rank is pretty low: #103 or so out of like 115 entries. But that's because I haven't told you about it yet!

So if you enjoy my sci-fi writing, you can download my new novella here.

It's a very different story than what I've written before: it's set in the distant, rather than the near future, and has a framing device which is another thing I've never tried before. I worked hard on it, but it didn't quite flow so gracefully and easily as Asteroid 433 Eros did. But in the end, I think I wrote an interesting story that will expand your mindhole. Check it out!
