Daily Snippit: Science Fiction

Because I am a geek…

Air was just another kind of water. It was the darkest blasphamy– death if ever she dared speak it where others could hear. But she sang it to herself, when she was down in the Deep, compressed into the smallest of her forms. Here where the oceans were sludge and she could just skim the crystallized tips of God’s fingers, where he reached up from Heaven below.

And if He did not strike her up, ejecting her from the depth faster than she could decompress, then didn’t that mean she was right?

My name is Martha Bechtel and I write fantasy and science fiction stories, paint small model horses silly colors, cast resin and plaster magnets, code random code (and Wordpress plugins)... Come on in and join in the fun!

    Hehehe, Martha, wicked cool, there! Love this sort of common-reality/uncommon-situation twist, sort of muddles the brain, doesn’t it? In the nicest way, of course.

    The link on that “a” gives me a blank page, and I noticed it’s location specific. What is it a link to, exactly?

    You are a geek. (But we love you anyway.)

    And why haven’t you compiled these and published them? Even as drabbles they’re better than some of the Scifi/Fantasy novels I read.

      Actually I had a ‘Quarters for College’ bit going on in my LuLu Store for a while. I sold them in batches of five for a quarter (obviously more polished versions than what were posted here, and groups around a central theme).

      I was thinking about on starting them up again in 2008, just for the fun of it! *grin* (There’s nothing quite like putting something together, even if you’re pretty sure no one will buy it. ^_~;; *grin*)
