If that’s not empathy, then what is? Authors do it all the time, particularly authors of science fiction or fantasy, whose plots depend on alternate realities or fictional settings populated by abstract rules, non-existent technologies, speculative cultures filled with alternate politics, and all the people or creatures that inhabit that space. That is a kind of world building, even abstractly, is a creative process that involves inventing intensely detailed webs of mindful relationships between any aspect of that universe the inventor of it deems important.

Saturday Story #2 – On Space Pirates

My Saturday short stories challenge-slash-project continues this weekend with your second read: From the Further Adventures of Larry Stark: Reluctant Space Adventurer comes… “That Time When Larry Smashed the Shatterproof Pirates where we delve into the world of awkward space opera fiction, in a slightly-comedic, slightly-offbeat fish-out-of-water story of Larry, white-collar call-centre-agent turned reluctant space adventurer when it turns out his long-time-friend surprises him with the knowledge that they are not both from the same planet after all. It’s just too bad that his friend up and gets murdered and leaves Larry to face the perils of space roguery on his own.” It’s short, raw, and should only take you about 15 minutes to read through. Enjoy!
