This was so breath-takingly timely. I just loved it.
I don’t usually comment on your short stories, but … Wow. This one really left me feeling a lot that I have yet to find the words for. Thank you!
I love this! Nyalou is a delightful character. Are there more stories about her?
Not yet, although this is set early in the Retrieval Artist world, so maybe.
As one of the many young girls who reveled in the majesty of the moon landing and dreamed of being an astronaut, thank you.
How delightful! How timely! How thought-provoking! How true. Thank you.
