“Egg” Shortlisted for Dinesh Allirajah Prize
In this Artificial Intelligence short story, the steel-shelled anti-hero travels from the ashes of his creator’s mansion to a Pacific paradise with the aid of various humans along the way.
Thanks to Comma Press, UCLAN and all concerned. It’s a real honour to have been shortlisted and I wish the best of luck to my fellow shortlistees!
“Egg” is scheduled for publication in the Comma Press Anthology out later this year.
