BTW, on my other web site, here’s a short story publication announcement. (The photo is of the volume. Many writers, many good stories!) The POV character grew up in Hellenism, so it may be of interest if you like scifi. Go to Pangrammatike for more details and a link to purchase.
In “Ash Shades,” two women survive the destruction of their landing site by taking shelter in their ship. They emerge to find a local sentient species salvaging burned seeds and must navigate communication barriers to learn what happened to the rest of their crew.
It’s 7,400 words, just shy of a novelette, and the perfect length to enjoy on your shorter (passenger — please don’t read & drive) commute.
