Forward Momentum and a Parallel Toss

In  by March 11, 2022
On the marching-band field, everything echoes of Alex. Lacey’s students spread across the sideline and cue their robots, and Lacey sees herself as a teenager in a giant sweatshirt, Alex next to her, looks at the bots and remembers Alex’s head on hers when she curled up around him in the last row of the […]

The Fisherwoman

This is your fourth visit to the botanical biosphere. Something always draws you back here, even though you have only one hour of leisure time. You scan your wristband and enter the glass dome. The biospheres are teeming with healthy plants and trees. Mechanical bees flit between the groups of coloured flowers. Today, you’ve come […]

The Inevitablist

It was called Moon Base Daintree, but it was less a base than a tube. A long, subway-car-sized tube, with a hatch at either end.

The waters there are blue abysses, no land masses abruptly halting flow. There are archipelagos stretching from the tip of Asia to the […]

Lunch Failure

In  by November 12, 2021
Doctor Jessica Scanlon was half expecting the text message. “Lunch?” it read. Short and sweet, unlike her brother. On the way down to ground level, she resisted the urge to backtrack, to recheck the setup for the next experimental run. To wait, expectant, for the results. They were sure to disappoint, like all the other […]

Farmers

Bhola, Bangladesh, 2033 Nayeem Abedin dumped out food for the geese and chickens. They dove for the food hungrily, oblivious to the rain. Nayeem, dressed in a short-sleeved khaki shirt and a tube-like lungi around his waist and legs, was not quite so immune to the downpour, but he had work to do, so he […]
