More Stories, More Loglines

The past two days, I’ve been practicing crafting loglines in between my usual short story writing and editing.  I thought I’d share a couple.

Here’s what I came up with for “Observations on a Clock,” published in the February issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction:

A religious acolyte on a distant planet must uncover the true nature of an alien artifact or human civilization will be annihilated by interstellar war.

And a logline for my slipstream story “Wing Over the Suicide Rocks:”

A teen who dreams of flying away from her war-torn island must survive her domineering father’s suicidal plan to escape the invading enemy.

So, do either of these pique your interest in the stories?  Do you have suggestions for improvement?  The comment period is open….
