I'd like to share the introduction to a #ScienceFiction series I'm working on called The City in Sand.
In a world that has experienced full ecosystemic collapse, humanity lives in a single city. Its citizens have built something beautiful, but they have to learn - about ecology, justice, and community - in order to survive. More chapters to come as I explore this world.
In "The Greenhouse" - an ancient Grower has discovered a secret that may help the city to survive, but he has withdrawn inside his home and wont tell anyone. As hunger protests intensify outside, a young student tries to coax the old man into sharing what he knows.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
