I haven’t decided yet what I want to write/write about this weekend so I decided to share a short story written by Charlie Jane Anders. Charlie writes regular columns for io9.com (I actually shared a tips and tricks cheat sheet she wrote for creating memorable characters. You can find that original article http://io9.com/10-tips-and-tricks-for-creating-memorable-characters-1616544190″>here), is an award-winning author, and in our few interactions has been an all-around pleasant and insightful person.
Below, I’ve linked to a short story she wrote for publication on Tor.com. If you enjoy humor, genies, and the end of the world, you’ll love this. Go, read, check out her articles on io9, and scope her on Twitter at @charliejane
