About that VPN…

My flash fiction story, “VPN Dosen’t Work” is up today at Every Day Fiction.

I find that I am just a little nervous about this story. It uses computer technology as its base to drive the plot. I am a computer professional. If I got something substantially wrong about the computers, it will be embarrassing. Luckily, the editors had me remove some computer jargon to make the story more accessible to non-computer readers, and that should help smooth over any problems. I can always claim poetic license as it were… but still… if I missed some detail…

I am exited about this story because I am hoping that its protagonist will be a publishable recurring character. He has been bouncing around in my mind since 1981 or so, thanks to Frederik Pohl and his Heechee Series of novels. Thank-you, Frederik (and thank-you Robinette Broadhead) for stories that have stayed with me all these years.

I love science fiction, and I hope you like this latest attempt of mine within the genre. Let me know what you think!

  1. So I guess the best way to get you my RSS feed is to just post the link here…

  2. You should be able to put an RSS widget on your blogspot page for people to use to subscribe.

    Personally, I prefer linking and checking individual blogs even if they may not have updated with a new post (or comment). Gives me a chance to explore the blog… like your ‘MYTUNES’, ‘DUGG’, ‘ME TUBE’, etc.

    I don’t RSS within wordpress, I use Yahoo as my RSS reader, but really don’t follow much.

    I am curious if you have read the comments about my VPN Story?
