Fictional Respite #4 – It’s Science, Matey!

I’m away in Singapore for the next few days, giving a talk about our trust in the New Zealand Police Force post the October Raids. So, for reasons completely unrelated to my sojourn overseas, I’m posting to the blog some fiction I wrote five years or so ago. They are short, one page pieces and I hope you enjoy them.

It’s Science, Matey!, a short-short story by HORansome.

A tale about statues of birds and the modern market.
