"What's in the jar?" she said.

"Vitamins. See?" I pointed to the label.

She turned and ran.

Could it be my ascorbic humor?

The alien ships departed full of willing human slaves. None could resist the mouth-watering allure of spice inviters.

Tom, you are far too kind. I had a story published in Nature, too: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v480/n7375/pdf/480144a.pdf and another one I just got accepted in the same place. Also, "Kulturkampf," that was published in the (print) Immersion Book of Steampunk, is getting produced as a podca...

The STar is a story I read a dozen times at least; I really like Norm's reading of it, though he does not sound like a Jesuit, or like my idea of a Jesuit. The story itself - sometimes it strikes me as an atheist's manifesto, sometimes a demons...
