22nd Century Genie Published

Sunday, 9 May 2010

My latest SF short story, 22nd Century Genie, has just been published in Issue 28 of Jupiter, the UK SF magazine.

As you can see, this issue of Jupiter is subtitled Autonoe, which, as I'm sure you'll be aware, being the superintelligent life-forms you are, is the name of the 28th moon of Jupiter. See what they've done there?

22nd Century Genie is the story of Simms, a Genetic Detective, who makes a living tracking down the genomes of historical figures for rich clients with collections of DNA images. He is employed to find the DNA of The Beatles, but begins to suspect his employer is no mere collector and that something much more sinister is going on. Yet he knows if he completes the job he'll be set up for life and all his problems will be over ...

Jupiter #28 can be purchased here.
