Pragmatism in the real world

Matt Gemmell's short stories

I’ve been following the work of Matt Gemmell for years. His techno-thriller Kestrel series a great fun to read and I recommend that you read them if that’s your thing.

He also writes short stories, one every week. These are excellent. They are free and as they are short, they don’t take long to read at all. A wonderful break from the reality of the world of work, I enjoy reading each week’s story with a cup of tea.

This week’s story, The Pathogen is as good an introduction to the One Upon A Time collective as any I’ve come across. At less than 1000 words, I was gripped and very much enjoyed it.

However, the true mark of a good story is that I’m still thinking about it a day later.
