Twelve Scenes Viewed From Outer Space: A Short Story

Twelve Scenes Viewed From Outer Space: A Short Story

by Paul Kelly

Publication Date: 13/05/2015


A fast-paced science fiction short story. Told in twelve mini-stages, each a numbered postmodern and stylistic sketch in the life of Bower living his life in a scary post-cyberpunk world. A bizarre darkly comedic, surreal and melancholic story dealing with politics, morality, gender, love and artificial intelligence. It might just tell you all you need to know about the world today, but then again it probably tells you nothing, oh well. 2080 words in length.
