After the Flood by Francisco Mejia

Imagine my surprise when I read the first offering in this month's Short Story section. A flood myth! Now, where have I read about great floods recently? Oh yes, now I remember. That's the subject of the novella which I have been writing for the last six months....

Mr. Mejia's take on the Great Flood has a science fiction premise, but it is presented as a symbolist tale. This helps to remind the reader that Flood Myths are truly universal and that they probably have as much to do with human psychology as with (pre)history.
