A Story

If you want to hear one of my science fiction stories read aloud—and rather well at that—I suggest you go to this link, click on the title at the head of the page (A Bite of Stars, a Slug of Time, and Thou – Episode 12). A little radio control then becomes active, and clicking on it you can hear my tale, Such is Fate. After the story is finished, some British commentators, headed by host Elisha Sessions, discuss the tale for quite a while—most intelligently. Amazing what you can find on the Internet! Concerning the story, it’s one I dashed off once on several legs of several flights of a business trip back in Anno Long Ago, starting in Atlanta and eventually ending in Kansas City a couple of days later…


  1. Hey, did you write that story before or after "A Hostage for Hinterland?"

    I'm sure I never read "Such is Fate." It was much fun to hear it read aloud and the commentary afterwards was fun too.

    Thanks for the link.

  2. Well, actually, if you must know, the story came AFTER Hostage. But you must know that the episode told took place BEFORE the events told in Hostage. The towers were still enjoying their early history. Alas, the creator need not follow the narrow constraints of time to look here and then look there.

  3. Arsen,
    I was thinking about your work back in MN with our Star City group. Did a search and here you are.

    Hope all is well. You can find me on LinkedIn or Facebook.
