The draft goes off to my local writers' workshop group in a minute, then I think I'll show it to the SF Writer's Workshoppers, and then send it off to one of the magazine editors, I think. I owe Stan Schmidt a story - long overdue in sending him one - or perhaps I'll send it to Gordon Van Gelder first. Hmm. Thinking on it. It's partly about identity, partly about the meaning of life, but mostly about a guy who is on a mission to kill the person responsible for his wife's death; along the way he has to figure out who he is and why he's doing what he's doing. Oh, and the Earth is about to be destroyed by an asteroid.
This was an emotionally draining story to write, a bit autobiographical I guess (as most fiction is), and very non-linear and challenging to assemble as well as read, I suspect. I hope it works well enough to reward the reader! I like it a lot; I put a lot into it.
Okay, off to spell-check and give it a title!
