“A Fine Mess” – A new science fiction short story by David Michael!
Kenneth is the best gatherer among the survivors. Only a few can gather Strings, the floating, Frayed remnants of what was once the edible vegetation of the world. Which is why there are a lot fewer people now than Kenneth remembers when he was younger. He might be only ten, but even Kenneth knows that if you can’t catch Strings, you can’t eat. And if you can’t eat, you starve and you die… (2300-word short story)
