I am pleased to announce that my short story, “The View from the Apex of Civilization” was reprinted on May 13 at www.throughthegaps.com, Once again, my thanks go out to Benjamin Choi and his staff at Through the Gaps.
“The View from the Apex…” is one of my earliest efforts and was published originally by Mobius Magazine in 2004. It is sort of horror lite. I wrote it to make a comment on our society. I hear often that our society is at the apex of civilization, or something else that implies that our society has learned all it can about certain subjects (granted there are some new ones like space travel or genetics that almost everyone will have to agree that we are struggling neophytes). To put things in perspective, I wrote this story in which, during the time of the Inquisition, an overly proud bishop brags to a local official about how their society is at the apex of civilization and there is nothing more to learn.
Please visit Through the Gaps and peruse all four of my stories that are now on their website.
