I have a new story in this month's Allegory magazine:

Congratulations! I like the story -- I'm not looking forward to the end of the harvest though...

awesome! Nicely done. I do kind of want to meet Hades, now, because I love how you've characterized Demeter and Persephone.

I love when you share your work. :)

Actually, I think that's a really insightful observation about the markets...

I was just thinking about it, because my parents and I went to Silicon Valley Comic-Con a few weekends ago, and I was remembering the kind of optimistic speculative fiction that I watched as a kid, especially Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I was thinking about how so much speculative fiction now is dark, or morally ambiguous, or gritty... I sort of think it's the zeitgeist. Technology won't save us, and humans are cruel and horrible. We are globally messing up our planet and the people with the money can't see it and keep their money so they won't see it.

I'm hoping at some point we'll shift back towards optimism, maybe? or realism with a forward-looking slant?

That makes a lot of sense. I always value your insight - thank you for sharing!
