Taking Time by Ellie Garratt and Scary Storm Photos

Taking Time and Other Science Fiction Stories
By Ellie Garratt

Science fiction stories of time and space...

The future of humanity must be decided in Next Phase. Winning the Planetary Lottery is not as lucky as it first seems in Schrodinger's Gamble. An apocalypse and its aftermath threaten to tear one couple apart in Daiker's Children. In Life As I Know It a reclusive man finds both his heart and home invaded during an alien harvest. In Taking Time a demon seeking shelter on a distant planet finds himself facing a very different kind of demon, after answering a frontier settlement's plea for help.

Stories range from flash fiction to novelette in length.

Publication date: 15th July 2013

Thank you Jo and Tina for giving me the Sisterhood Award.


And I leave you with some images from the very freaky storm that blew through our area Thursday night. (Fortunately I got home from my seminar in Wilmington before it hit.)
