I’ve been so buried lately with my writing (this is a good thing) and getting books two and three of the Alexandria Saga into an acceptable publishing state that I’ve barely had time to remember to let everyone know about my new stories. This story is a straight-up science fiction novelette (though a bit of a dystopia as well) and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
The Sky Mother’s Gift
Earth lies abandoned.
When the Makers left for the stars, civilization descended into ruin. Asp, one of the last remaining sentient cities, fights against the ravages of time, but his resources are dwindling. When at last he swallows his pride and seeks the help of the primitive peoples that remain, he learns the true meaning of courage.
