The first time I posted this, I managed to delete the story somehow. Or, worse still, not actually write it. So let’s try this again!

Seventy aimless years: before the cure for aging, he’d never have become anyone.

New Monthly Microfiction At Patreon: “The Mangrove At The End Of The World”

PatreonJUN2015

I’ve been posting a piece of microfiction each month for Patreon patrons (a whole buck a month is the minimum pledge to see them) since March. This month’s offering is a vignette about a young man fishing in a place that makes the familiar Earth seem very alien indeed. It’s about hope and death and life and duty, and maybe a few other things, too. While a vignette isn’t quite a story of its own, this one sketches the edges of at least three big stories for your — and maybe my, in future works — imagination to work on.

You should read it. I think it’s worth seeing.
