mrcreek: Rana palustris, the pickerel frog (Default)
[personal profile] mrcreek
I am writing a science fiction story. I suspect it will end up being over 10,000 words long. I'm billing it as a "molecular evolution thriller," inspired by Michael Crichton novels (the good ones), Sagan's "Contact," the move "Pi," and "The Da Vinci Code" (but with DNA instead of artwork). A message lies hidden in our very genomes, accessible in public web databases to anyone who can discover and decipher it. Those who know of the secret fight to control it for religious, military, or scientific reasons. The heroes find themselves racing to understand the mystery before it's too late. Also featuring cool prehistoric beasts.

This story is original fiction, not fan fiction, and there will probably be little or no sex in it. If anyone is still interested despite these drawbacks, please take a look. I plan to post it, one or two chapters at a time, in closed-access posts. If it sounds like something you'd like to read, subscribe to me and I will almost certainly grant you access. It's not ready yet, but it should be soon. I would appreciate any feedback you care to give me. I may take the DW feedback I receive and edit the story into a final draft that I'll post publicly.

I feel like I should be embarrassed by how much I want to read this, and then I remember: it sounds awesome.

Sounds awesome. I'm looking forward to reading it, although it may take me several days to get to it.

Hello, you don't know me, but I know [personal profile] wintercreek as we are on an OTW committee together. I'd like to read your story in progress, so I have subscribed. Cool prehistoric beasts are all too alluring.
