Impasse (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: The short story 'Impasse' was originally published in the anthology 'disLocations', which also featured stories from Ken Macleod, Brian Stableford, Pat Cadigan, Hal Duncan and others. Considering this august company I was very pleased when Amazon reviewer Kevin M Knight said: "I enjoyed this story the most. If pressed for a favourite, I would choose this, mainly because I liked the contrasting thought processes of alien cultures as a demigod-like being went mad..." The story is set in the same universe as my novel 'The Outcast and the Little One' (TOATLO); the Aumon culture glimpsed within 'Impasse' is fully explored in this novel as the Aumons bring up a young girl, with dramatic consequences for both parties. I present 'Impasse' FREE here as a small tempter for TOATLO.

“Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority. The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong. All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on "I am not too sure.”
