If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi.
My short story “Woman Under Repair” will be featured in three parts in The Green Shoe Sanctuary magazine themed “Under Construction.”
The dates are May 10th, 17th, and 24th. So starting tomorrow the 10th, click the link above and start reading my latest published short story.
This one’s special because the material comes from an “almost novel” that I wrote in a different form here on my blog a few years back.
The woman who is now Mikiko Jahn was a young nuclear engineer at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in March 2011 when an earthquake and tsunami caused the worst reactor accident since Chernobyl. The disaster reduced Mikiko into a barely alive torso and head covered with unspeakable burns.
Revolutionary scientist Daniel Hunt has developed a special and highly experimental technique that, in concert with the Japanese and British governments, is used in a secret project, not just to rebuild Mikiko into her former self, but to make her more than human. But six years later in pursuit of a notorious human trafficker, is she human at all?
