"Fourteen to the Fifth Power," a story I consider a throwaway, has generated more feedback in less time than any story of mine I can remember. Usually, response to my stories is favorable, but this time opinion has been all over the map, ranging from enthusiastic to downright hostile. One guy told me to "get an editor," which was sad, because I have an editor, and he liked the story.

I want to thank everyone for taking the time to write, but I do want to point out, one more time for the world: The story has nothing to do with age of consent laws.
