I'm back in the Icarus Universe this week!
I don't really want to say exactly when this story is set because it might spoil it for those of you who've been reading the flash fictions as they come out. I will say it's set a few hours to maybe a day after one of the other, earlier stories. If you think you know which one, comment down below, and I'll let you know if you got it.
That said, you don't have to know anything about the Icarus Universe at all to understand the story.
Today's flash fiction takes us back to the Super's Universe right about a month after "A Protige' is Found." This time we're not with Stan West though, we're looking in on his cousin Laura at the start of a new school year.
The other stories in the series might fill you in on some background information, but having read them isn't necessary to understand or enjoy the story.
I've found myself lacking time of late, and unfortunately, audios and much of the other content once on Eng Family Vlogs is taking the hit. I'm not entirely sure if I will continue to make audio versions of these stories each week or not at the moment, but as it stands for now, this one doesn't have one.
We're back in the AI Universe today with a short set right about a week after "Interoffice Politics."
Having read the other stories in the series will fill in a bit of background information, but it isn't necessary to understand or enjoy today's story.
As always, you can also find an audio version of the story here.
Today's story takes us back to the Super's Universe an hour or two after "Broadening Horizons." Having read "Meeting Ms. Truseau" and "Broadening Horizons" can help fill in backstory, but it isn't necessary to understand todays flash fic.
You can also listen to the audio here.
We're back in the AI Universe today, a couple of centuries before the events in "Bad First Day." You don't have to be familiar with the universe to understand the story.
Today's flash fic takes us back to the Myth and Science Universe several months after the events of "I Have the Weirdest Friends." Okay, so it's not the "long story" about how Jenn and Penelope found out Lily wasn't from Earth. That story's being saved for the Myth and Science Universe short story collection in the works, but today's story happens pretty much right after that one.
Having a passing familiarity with the universe helps, but it's not necessary to enjoy or understand the story.
You can also listen to the audio version.
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.
If you'd rather hear the story, you can also find the audio version here.
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.
