Confounding Variable: A Science Fiction Tree, Short Story by Brian Garrison

indie ebook cover

Mayor Darius chided mother, “It’s probably just a wolf-pack, sniffing the wards.”
Mother denied it was wolves, but she could only say it was “something different this time.”
This short story is inspired by fall Renaissance Festivals. It’s clearly sword and sorcery fantasy, and yet it fits within my overall imagined future. With utmost respect to the awarded and knighted Clark, whose third law is: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” I wonder, what if a colony with advanced tech finds it easier to think of their tech as magic?

About The Author...

indie author

Brian Garrison


I like self-contained stories. Ones I can read and not wonder how long until the final sequel is released with the answer to the initial mystery. I write multiple stories in a consistent future, but each story is complete by itself. Except, I might write some flash fiction, and follow up with longer stories; as if the flash fiction is an introduction to the bigger story line.
