Happy news – I released a new scifi short story to all your favorite e-book retailers – go read Culture Shock now! I started the story based on a writing prompt and expanded it into a larger darkly-comic discussion about reversals of fortune, ruin, and redemption. Have you ever suffered a nightmare social gaffe that destroys your entire universe? Dave has, and he finds an interesting way to make things right. Here’s a quick description:
Ta’la and Dave are humans exploring the Besh au’Rum Freeport Zone for the first time. How will they react when they quickly realize that aliens don’t pay much attention to humans? Dave’s disappointment leads to some surprisingly emotional reactions. Things get even more complicated when Ta’la buys a fake Earth artifact. Dave must pull it together and use his knowledge of alien cultures to achieve acceptance and growth in a universe dominated by aliens.
Ready to explore the uncharted territories of the cosmos and human fallibility? Join me on a cosmic rollercoaster and prepare to be amazed!
