Really enjoyed this, chipped in $2 on Google and got the mobi version to send to my wife's Kindle. She's an avid reader and loved "Just a Geek". Sure she's going to love this, especially since it should just show up next time she syncs it. I read through the .mobi using the official Mobipocket software. Windows-only, I think, but an okay experience, especially if you'd like this on your Kindle. Thoughts on the story: I really, really enjoyed the world you built. Other commenters have mentioned how immersive it was, and I'd really second that. I would love to hear more about the eyestalked Gan in a future piece of fiction. I'm a bit of a sucker for invasion/resistance stories, so this really was a great experience for me. My favorite line: "Everything rippled, like his reality was the surface of a pond on a windy day". That line really caught me. Not sure why, but I felt like it was the *only* way to describe what you were thinking, and was spot-on. The ending was pitch-perfect. I won't spoil it for anyone, but I really liked the last line. Again, left me wanting a lot more. I can see this being a very strong piece in a short-story collection. Any chance we could see that soon? Oh, also: I'm a media composer who's been trying out the donation model too. It would be interesting to hear your results afterward. I haven't gotten PayPal set up, but I have had some success with Bitcoin, through which I've managed about $10 in donations for an album I put up for free/donation*, after what looks like about 100 downloads. Not a terrible conversion rate if you ask me. Thanks for the story, looking forward to reading more of your fiction. *http://curtisschweitzer.net/?page_id=465 If anyone is interested.
