The Long Stairs
What if magic was a gamble, literally, and the fae held all the cards? What would you bet, when your hand goes bust and your last chance is burning away into the smoke filled air? Andrew introduces us to the world of the Long Stairs.
In this near-future dystopian SF short, Andrew explores the toxic intersection of love, poverty, and corporate lock-in. What if the only person that remembered your life and loves was an android that required daily 'pills' to survive? What would you give up to keep your memories alive?
How does an ethically naive AI, embodied in a child's toy, survive until their owner grows up? In this Science Fiction short story, can Big Bear, Keddry Kitty, and Pinky Dog find the missing Purps before the adorable, but innocently brutal, Little One breaks her?
