I first wrote this story in June of 2013. While I thought it was pretty good, it didn't follow a traditional literary structure, which is probably why it got rejected a record 116 times before finally getting accepted by Bull. The biggest complaint was always that the story didn't seem to go anywhere, which was kind of the point.
In this case, Bull wanted a few minor changes before publication, and so I worked with them on a couple of small tweaks. This actually doesn't happen that often in the world of short stories. Usually its a take it or leave it kind of model. Anyways, hope you all enjoy it.
