When I saw the prompt for today's story, I knew it would have to be set somewhere, sometime in the Myth and Science Universe. It's set toward the beginning of the universe's timeline, so while having already read "Don't Go Near the Well" is helpful, it's not needed to enjoy the story. It's set a year or so after the events of "Don't Go Near the Well" and a couple of years from "Flight from Mab's Castle."

Today's story takes us back to the Myth and Science Universe several months after the events of Culture Shock and about a week after The Move. Having read those two stories first can help make this one a bit more fun, but it's not necessary to understand the story.

We're about a week away from the one year birthday of this series, and today's story takes us back almost to the beginning. "Birth of a Believer" is set about two or three weeks after the events of "Don't Go Near the Well," as time is reckoned in the human realm.
You don't have to have read that flash fic or be familiar with the Myth and Science universe to understand this flash fiction. However, long time readers may notice a couple easter eggs hidden within.
As always, you can find the audio here.
I thought I'd mix it up a bit this week by answering a writer's tag I found online. It just has ten simple questions, so this should be short and sweet.
1. What do you write?
A quick scroll down the categories over to the right of the page ought to prove I write speculative fiction. Spec fic covers a wide range of genres and their subgenres as well as mashups of those. I tend to stick more with science fiction, but I do dabble in fantasy now and again. And like with the Yekara series and the Myth and Science universe stories, there are times when I use both science fiction and fantasy elements in the same piece.
If humanity every made the endangered species list, who would be the ones adding us to it?
Today's story takes us back to the Myth and Science universe a few weeks before the events of "Flight from Mab's Castle." You don't need to be familiar with the universe to understand the story though.

Believe it or not, this week's story is set back in the Myth & Science universe again just a few hours after the events of "Fateful Meeting."
It did go 150 words or so over the usual limit, but it worked so well, I decided to keep it. I'll be extra careful not to "cheat" next week.
Today's story takes us back to the Myth & Science universe a few days after Return to the Wood.
I do realize I changed the opening lines just a touch for grammatical reasons and to fit more with the nomenclature of the culture I'm working in. I hope you'll pardon the changes since the meaning is still more or less the same.
This story takes us back to the Myth and Science universe sometime between "Don't Go Near the Well" and "The Move."
Thank you to Katie Wiles for the prompt.
Today's story takes us back to the Yekara universe about a week after the end of Right of Succession. There are a couple of spoilers in it. So if you haven't read the novel yet and don't want to be spoiled, you might want to wait about clicking "read more."
It is still going to be a while before I can start making audios of these stories again. Each one requires an hour or so of editing, and I still can't sit at my desk for more than a few minutes without spending at least the rest of the day in agony. Sorry.
Today's story takes us back to the beginning, all the way back to "Don't Go Near the Well." Click read more below to see what happens next with Isaac after "Flight from Mab's Castle" and "Not Quite First Contact."
