Magnificent action vignette, conveying the chaos of the battlefield while still being an engaging read.

Anonymous, yes. It's a perfectly ordinary name where I come from.

My father was Anonymous as well.

I'm sorry, Mrs Mayor, but I didn't catch your name?


This originally appeared in my anthology, Crackship in a bottle.

I won't spoil it for you, suffice to say it's funny and clever. (And, unless I miss my guess, based off Carabas's Palaververse!)

I had no idea what to expect, and I usually avoid Anon stories like they were contagious, but here I took a risk after some positive comments and...
Well, this is splendid, hilarious, and was a wonderful investment of my scarce free time. Thank you for it.

Vinyl remembers the doll. It's unmistakably hers, right down to the peanut butter stain on the left foot. Except it's in Octavia's closet, and Octavia insists it's always been hers. Why do they have the same doll – and the same memory?

“These otherworldly phenomenons are surprisingly interesting.”

“This has been one hell of a ride. I would go so far as to call this a minor masterpiece. It is quite unlike anything I have read up to this point (and I have read, approximately, a metric shit ton,) and it has left a real impression on me. So many try for the psychological mystery and fail horribly, but this was incredible. The reinterpretation of classic characters, concepts, and scenes from the show were amazing. With so many, I expected a few to fall flat, but you nailed every one.”

“So intriguing...
I can't stop reading it!”

“I like that this story is bringing up topics now that are incredibly complicated from both a moral and existential standpoint. [...]
Ok, ok, tldr; I like this a lot, because it’s making me and others think about the possibilities.”

“How is it that gems like these are always hidden so deep? I love your poetry, can't get enough of it.”

“This is just really stellar, I hope everyone checks it out.”

“A concept which in the hands of just about anyone would have become empty prurience is instead warm and brilliant and funny and just lovely.”
