Subscribers to Daily Science Fiction are receiving my story "30 Pounds of Human Tissue" in their e-mail boxes today. Nonsubscribers will be able to read the story next week when it goes up on the DSF website.
Some background on how this story came about: A friend and fellow writer, Dustin Adams, posed a challenge a few months ago that we both write and submit a flash story every month. This was the second story I wrote as part of that challenge, and DSF was the first place I submitted it. As for the idea itself, like many of my story ideas, I can't pinpoint one thing that sparked it. But I love robots and I love children, and so putting them together seemed to make sense.
