  1. I really enjoyed reading this. The more I read, the more I got engrossed and kinda didn’t want it to end. Reminds me on those stand-alone episodes of Black Mirror on Netflix. It had a nice, retro feel as well, like Asimov’s world, sort of. Anyway. Great story. Good luck with it.

  2. This was such a good read! As the plot thickened and Alexia’s situation kept getting worse I was so eager to see what was going to happen! It was very clever and very interesting to read. Love it!

  4. Wow Shelley – fabulous. I’m not a lover of short stories – to me they have always seemed so pointless as just as you become immersed the story ends. I have to say that this one of yours has totally changed my opinion. I immediately connected with the main character and felt her confusion and dilemmas, and I loved and totally did not expect the ending. Congratulations – loved it! Keep going!

    It’s nice to see some spec fiction from down under. I’m trying to read more world fiction. What’s your fave non-US/European novel?
