Mary Robinette Kowal has some free stories available on her website. One of them, For Want of a Nail was my reading for the day and I really enjoyed it. She’s a science fiction writer, with that rarest of skills – she writes believable and accurate technology.
I am limiting my reading right now in favor of Camp Nanowrimo (also my photography, which I’ll start again on May 1st, when Camp Nanowrimo is over), but took a small break to enjoy the story. I’m glad I did.
