description: My NEW novelette "Mildred," will be available in Kindle format for FREE on Tuesday - 7/8/14 at Amazon.

This story is somewhat different then my usual science fiction fare, but I thought you might be interested in checking it out. It's a tale of psychological suspense in the same vein as my previous story "Overtime in the Woods" and I hope it is as well received as that tale.

McKinley liked a quote
72587
By now you know: I come from another planet. But I will never say to you, "Take me to your leaders." Even I--unused to your ways though I am--would never make that mistake. We ourselves have such beings among us, made of cogs, pieces of paper, small disks of shiny metal, scraps of coloured cloth. I do not need to encounter more of them.

Instead I will say, "Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes, your nouns. Take me to your fingers; take me to your deaths."

These are worth it. These are what I have come for.
Margaret Atwood
