So it’s been almost two weeks since I’ve posted anything. I managed to get unstuck in the snow and catch my flight to warmer climes for the day job. Whenever I travel for work, things get exceptionally busy—I have to maximize limited time in the field, after all. This trip was particularly hectic because during some survey work we found a large number of colonies of a rare coral species, potentially quadrupling the known population size (we need to do more work to determine if the colonies are clones or separate “individuals”).
My writing slowed down this trip (which happens every time I travel), but I still made progress. I nearly finished revisions on a short story set in the same world as “Thief of Futures.” It’s a stand alone story, but if you enjoyed the setting of “Thief of Futures” and would like make another visit, this new story might be for you . . . assuming I can find a home for it, of course. It needs a little more polishing before it heads to the slush piles, but I hope to have that done soon.
