Sarah

I’ve added my short story Sarah to my blog. Frankly, I wasn’t doing anything with it, so I figured I might as well put it up there.

Yeah, I didn’t spend much time on the cover image.

The story was written for a little contest with the prompt of ending the story on an open-ended question. When I wrote it, I wanted the decision to be difficult. However, I didn’t want to make it trying to choose the lesser of two evils. Mostly, I wanted the reader to have to think at the end. Hopefully the story accomplishes that.

It’s about Ethan Pollard, a police┬átechnician┬áthat crosses paths with a beautiful Human Analog Bio-robotic. She’s on the run and has a head full of fragmented memories of a life she’s never lived. Only H.A.Bs don’t run away and they certainly don’t have some stranger’s memories.

The story is about 7,300 words, has a little bit of mild swearing, and is more about raising ethical questions than answering them. I’d call it PG-13.

The cover image is from morguefile.com which is a great source for free images that can be freely used. I wanted to make sure my cover didn’t violate any terms of use even though I have no intention to price the story as anything but free.

Sarah is freely available on my blog or in ebook form from Feedbooks.

What do you think Ethan’s decision should be?
