A Week of Two Stories – Part 1

Stories do have this habit of lying fallow for ages and then all popping up at once, like seedlings in spring (more on seedlings later this week). And it just so happens that I have two new stories out in the same week!

My science-fiction flash story, ‘The Magnitude of It All’, came out yesterday at Fireside, and I couldn’t be happier that it’s found such an excellent home. I wrote this one in 2018, so it’s taken a while to find its editor, while proving that good things do come to those who wait…

It’s a story about a pair of scientists who discover an astonishing pattern in the universe, at both the micro and macro scales. It’s about the nature of the universe, and about the importance of approaching subjects holistically, looking wider than a single narrow focus in order to see the bigger picture, and just how much there is to learn when we do that.

It’s a pretty philosophical piece, and one I’m quite proud of. Hope you enjoy!

Tune in later this week for Part 2…
