Long Term Thinking


My short story “Long Term Thinking” was just published in this months “Ray Gun Revival” on-line magazine. It is a story about how man doesn’t see the eventual destruction of the galaxy as a problem, only an opportunity.

I’m really proud of that little story, it outlines the eventual death of the galaxy through hydrogen depletion, and a solution to let people have pleasant places to live for 10’s of Billions of years past the death of the mainstream stars. All told by relatable characters in under 1,800 words.

I would have liked to do more character development and paint a bigger picture of the solution, but that would have exploded the story into a small novella, and I feel the conciseness of the story adds to its charm.

Feel free to give me any feedback on it.

Very nice ... I like your writing style ... I was hooked in the first few lines, which (for me) is what determines whether or not I'll read a story. I read yours to the end! And congrats on getting it published!!

BTW ... one of your comments is featured on my blog today. Here's the direct link:
