    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    Here's one I wrote a while back. I wanted to get away from the usual survival porn (big money + big toys+ super competence), and so I made the hero a little less than heroic.

    Wow! I want to know if Charlie.... won't say and spoil it for others. @UncleMorgan great story. The beginning was great. If collapse ever happened you wonder how many would be thinking the same thing. Thank you for sharing.

    @PaxMentis good read

    Whups! I'd written this one as a stand-alone short story, but I'll go ahead and get started on a what-happens-next for Charlie. I'll see if I can work up something interesting to befall him--a fate even worse than True Love. (Gasp!)
