Our sixth piece of audio fiction for April is “Shining Armor” written by Dominic Green and read by Kate Baker.
Originally published in The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction: Volume Two, edited by George Mann.
Dominic Green was born some time ago. He remembers when telephones were attached to the wall with cables. As a child, he was lied to by magazines that told him he would be living on the Moon in the year 2000 wearing silver rocket boots. People have been publishing science fiction by him since 1996, ha! The fools. In 2006, he was nominated for a Hugo Award for his story, "The Clockwork Atom Bomb." Nowadays, he writes children's science fiction ebooks (in particular the six-book Ant and Cleo series, available on Amazon). He is married with three cats and a seventeen-week-old Newfoundland puppy who greatly resembles a cartoon bear.
