Welcome to our first new story of 2010!
To help us celebrate our return to running original fiction, Tessa Dick has generously allowed us to repring her short story, "Bear 2.0," a tale of futurewar, cybernetics, and the devaluation of the human soul. We're pretty excited about this, since this is not only our first original story of the new year, but it's also our first story by a published author, rather than our normal gaggle of talenten amateurs. It comes from Tessa's 2008 anthology, "Quachi and Other Stories and Poems."
Tessa has been a great friend to us and our site, and we're deeply indebted to her for allowing us the loan of her talented mind. Thank you, Tessa! We appreciate it!
The complete story is under the jump.
