My short story "Nobo" has been published in the webzine SURPRISING STORIES.

"Nobo" is both a satire of today's modern world, and speculation about a possible near future. Its ending will not come as a surprise... but the ending alone is not the point of the story.

When you write short fiction, the important thing about the ending is not that it's "shocking", but that it makes sense: everything in the story builds up to the ending and connects to it.

(If only the ending mattered, why not write only the ending and skip the story? ;-))
