2019 Award Eligibility Post

As Fantasy and Science Fiction award nomination season nears, I offer for consideration the short story “The Crystal Zyst: A Eula Banks, State Certified Zeitle Engineer, Story“, published at Cosmic Roots & Eldritch Shores.

The Crystal Zyst is the story of two working class sisters who own a business clearing out zeitles, i.e. exponentially slowed time bubbles.

On a run-of-the-mill remediation job they encounter a rare form of zeitle, leading to a life-and-death situation of CO² poisoning and trapped children. Mounting a rescue requires 450 HP semi-truck engines, silvery fuzzy suits, a team of zeitle engineers, and time–lots and lots of time.

Thanks for reading and for your consideration.
