If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi.
As promised, my science fiction short story “Woman Under Repair” is available now. Just click the link and read part 1 for free in the May issue of the periodical The Green Shoe Sanctuary (alas, it could use a bit of editing).
I’ve never had one of my stories serialized before, but it reminds me that many classic science fiction novels from decades past were serialized first before becoming novels. I don’t know if that’s going to happen here, but it’s an interesting and exciting thought.
It also makes me think of the old “cliffhangers” from times gone by when not only stories, but films were constructed to bring the viewer back to the theater week after week to see what happened next.
Here’s the blurb:
Six years ago, a young technician was horribly injured in the worst nuclear plant disaster since Chernobyl. She was presumed dead to all but a small team of governmental officials and doctors. Dr. Daniel Hunt had developed an experimental technique that was the only way to save Mikiko’s life. Six years later, she was reborn, not just as she had been before but as more. Mikiko Jahn became the world’s first synthetic woman. Now she faced a greater challenge; using her unique abilities to find and stop the world’s most notorious human trafficker. Mikiko’s life had been miraculously saved, but she would never be complete until she could save his victims.
Have a read and let me know what you think. The second installment of three will be available on May 17th.
