Unmoored: Worlds of Pure Chaos Anthology
This anthology of science fantasy stories features my story, Radio Silence, which won the grand prize in Fictionate’s July 2022 Worldbuilding Short Fiction Contest. Click the photo to purchase through Barnes & Noble.
In the year 3045, after the Earth has been cleansed by the “Others”, Eleanor’s Gran often tells her stories about what the old world was like before the aliens arrived and destroyed everything. Eleanor is friends with Juniper, a boy with violet eyes who was left behind by the Others. When her Gran gives her a defunct radio, Eleanor takes it to Juniper, who thinks it might be just what he needs to get the robot he’s been building to work.

When you come to, the fading light of day hurts your eyes. You blink against the unfamiliar brightness that shines across your upturned face in streaks of orange and yellow. Groggy, you roll your head to one side and focus unsteadily on the trees that line the cracked asphalt beneath your supine form. With the sun setting behind them, their silhouette rises darkly in a mass of leaves and undergrowth. As you look deeply into them, a breeze blows against your face and ruffles your hair. The woods are breathing.
A very real story of my experience with a supernatural being I can't, even to this day, explain.
