We all know Kevlin Henney from his technical writings, so I was keen to see what sort of fiction he might write. Before I read it, and even now, I had no idea of what the guidelines set for this short story were, but I was hoping for some science fiction. There wasn’t any, but it was still good.
The subject matter of Afterglow is a little on the dark side and like so many good stories, I had to read it a couple of times to really understand what it was about, who the person telling the story was and what situation they found themselves in now. Along with all the obvious emotion and feeling there is still a slight technical edge in certain places.
Personally I’m looking forward to the next, hopefully longer, piece.
