Today's story takes us back to the AI Universe, a couple centuries farther into the future than we've gone before. You don't have to know anything about the universe to understand and enjoy this story.
As always you can find the audio version here.
Today's story takes us back to the AI Universe a couple of days after "Consequences of Snooping." You'll get a couple of Easter egg type references if you've read the other stories in the series, but you don't have to be familiar with the universe to understand or enjoy the story.
If you'd rather listen to the story, you can find the audio here.
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.

It's been a while since I did one of these. I've been so focused on writing lately, I haven't taken the time to read for pleasure. That's a crying shame though, and I missed it. So I dug out a book I picked up almost a year ago earlier this month.
C. L. and I had the good fortune to have a table next to Patricia Gilliam and her husband at Fanboy Expo Nashville Comic Con last year. Their company was one of the best parts of that convention for us, so I made sure to pick up Out of the Gray, the first book in her Hannaria series, before we headed home.
I already had a few books lined up to review when I got the novel, so I put it in our living room bookcase when we unpacked from the convention. It had sat there and collected dust for months. To be quite honest, I'd almost forgotten about the collection of five or six books I have waiting to be read and reviewed. I was considering checking out some from the library the next time I carry my girls before I remembered all those books at home. Now that I've remembered, I'm going to try and get back in the swing of reading and reviewing the work of other authors out there writing today.
That said, let's get into Out of the Gray.
Today's story is set a few months before the beginning of Right of Succession, so I have to warn you it contains some fairly big spoilers. If you haven't read the novel, and you don't want to be spoiled, you might want to finish the book first.
Today's story takes place in the Icarus Universe sometime in the first summer following the brief and devastating world war. It's a rare, light and quiet moment for Steven, Evie, and their three children under ten in their lives following the man made apocalypse.
Prior experience with the universe isn't necessary to understand or enjoy the story though. And as always, you can find the audio here.
Hey look! I can write a flash fiction set in the Yekara Universe that doesn't have spoilers. Yay!
Today's flash fiction is set roughly twelve years or so before Right of Succession.
Back in the Supers Universe this week, and this time, we're back with Stanley and his family several weeks after the events of "Emergence."
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.
We return to the Supers Universe today. This story takes place a few days after "An Unnerving Discovery" and "Bad Partners." You don't have to be familiar with the universe to understand the story.
