New story at Roar and Thunder

I have a new SF teleportation story up now at the wonderful Roar and Thunder:

Meredith Said - SF - 1,639 words

Meredith said that he should always remember that history gets written by the winners, and that what was in the books wasn't always how it actually happened in real life.  

This story was inspired by watching the Doctor Who episode 'The Beast Below.' What I took away from the ep was how sorry I felt for the poor space whale, and it struck me that first contact with an alien could very well end up being a lot less about awe and wonder and more about the opportunity for profit.

  5. Congrats on meeting your W1S1 goals and on such a fantastic story! Zach was such an engaging, distinctly drawn character from the start, and it was a pleasure watching his story unfold to a beautifully done ending.
