The Suicide of Our Troubles
...Is the title of my latest short story, up now on Slate.com.
You can read the story for free on Slate. As a bonus, journalist Anna V. Smith has written a companion piece for the story, which is here.
"The Suicide of Our Troubles" is set in the same universe as my novel Stealing Worlds, and in fact happens at the same time and in the same city. I guess I'm not quite done talking about the personhood of natural systems, which is a theme I've been writing about for twenty years now.
I hope you enjoy the story, and if you do, pass on the link!
