The Margaret Mitchell Estate Strikes Back by McCamy Taylor

This month, McCamy takes us deep -- very deep -- into "What if?" territory -- again, with some characters she's used before.

Intellectually fascinating, but I wasn't prompted to any significant emotional reaction. Still, the story is meticulously constructed.

So. It may not make you feel much, but it will make you think.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

It must be LGBT month here on Aphelion.

I thought it was very, very clever. The idea of a Gay/Lesbian version of that play/book/film that shall not be named was very funny in itself. And the story was a good dig about extended copyright and the way some corporations or estates will viciously defend their properties (maybe that wasn't an explicit intention but that what I got from reading it).
Doggerel is a derogatory term for verse considered of little literary value.

Well plotted and constructed by Ms. Taylor as usual. Not being a fan of GWTW, I got lost some of the time. Sometimes when writing, I feel as though Mycroft-like AI's are co-exising in my cerebral cortex.

I don't believe we are responsible for global warming. It is more likely a cyclical phenomenon related to increased solar flare activity on the Sun.
