Introducing "A Fear of Falling Under", in issue 27 of The Future Fire.
I raved about the artwork by Robin E. Kaplan on Twitter and I'll rave about it here: holy wow, the artwork is INCREDIBLE. It suits the story so perfectly, I love the colour scheme, the whole "is that TOMATOES EVA person is holding?" wierdness of the first piece, and the characterization in the second piece. Also, the starfield is a lot like the background of PT, so, symmetry.
Be prepared for something different again with "Fear". Yes, the title was the inspiration (from a song about losing yourself physically and mentally, and sometimes not in good ways). Yes, I play with the protag's reality. It was a lot weirder in earlier drafts, almost incomprehensible. Yes, I was playing it a little Russ/Tiptree. Yes, there's a nod to one of my favourite books of all time.
Twinkle twinkle little star, I can see you're not that far...
