Short Fiction Tuesday
I've been trying to catch up on some other, non-short fiction reading this past week, so I haven't had a chance to read the latest batch of short stories to upload on my Nook. But one story I have read this past week and is well worth reading is N. K. Jemsin's "The Trojan Girl," which originally appeared in Weird Tales. She published the story for free on her blog in protest of Weird Tales' recent editorial meltdown. The story is a rich take on self conscious entities evolving within computer networks, told from within the network with something of a mythic-feeling background to their actions avoiding human awareness of their existence. Very cool story.
