Welcome to July 2015! I hope it’s going well for everyone.
I loved reading (and rereading) science fiction stories by Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke as a kid, and wanted to someday write a science fiction story that would express my admiration for their stories.
So I wrote a longish science fiction story (the length is actually referred to as a “novelette”) called “By The Numbers.”
I’m too close to my own work, so I can’t say if I succeeded in showing my admiration for Clarke and Asimov. I hope so.
The story is out this month, and available to read in full online for free, in the July 2015 issue of Crossed Genres Magazine. I hope you will click on over and read about Dr. Melaine Sharps at New Mexico Tech and a rather unusual alien species.
Dr. Sharps (the main character) just happens to have autism, and I am extremely grateful to all the people on the spectrum I’ve known over the past ten years who helped me do a realistic story about how it feels to be autistic.
While you’re over at Crossed Genres, check out the other July stories too.
Til next time, Lynn
