they picked up guns and hammers

My short story "Form and Void" is now available for free in issue 3 of Fireside.

It's about mean girls and space exploration and Io.

Before she turned into a dragon, Kathy Cutter was Comanche Zariphes’ best friend.

You might say Comanche Zariphes was Kathy Cutter’s only friend.

That wasn’t because nobody wanted to be friends with Kathy Cutter. It was because Kathy Cutter didn’t want to be friends with anybody else.

This story really moved me, because I knew a woman like Kathy. She was completely amoral, tortured and driven, with a criminal mind. After living for years in her shadow, I finally walked away. I recently heard she had MS, which made me sad, but then I wondered if she's faking it for access to drugs which makes me sadder still. (This sounds like a blog I should write and not clog up yours!)I really enjoy the image of jeweled dragons soaring over Jupiter's moons. Padparadscha orange?! Who knew?
Padparadscha! Yes! Had to look it up (thank heavens for Google Image search). Precise and perfect and a colour you can fall into with delight.
