My latest short story, “The True History of the Betan Conversion,” is available at Daily Science Fiction. Read it here.
I was delighted and honestly a bit surprised to see it sell. I had been reading a lot of Gene Wolfe when I wrote this, and liked the mythical/biblical style he used in his short story “The God and His Man.” As a writing exercise, I tried my hand at something short in a similar vein, and “The True History of the Betan Conversion” was the result. Once I had a draft, I barely had to do any editing, which I’m taking as a good sign that my writing abilities are finally able to match what I envision in my head before drafting anything.
