The Worms are coming!

I've always loved the MindWorms, and I'm writing a new story, which is a homage to Tabico, Dr Esterhazy and William Lee.

Tabico's "Mindworms" stories, and William Lee's "I-Toys", are still up on mcstories, but the Dr Esterhazy story "The Plague Maiden" disappeared a while ago, although it's still possible to find it on the Internet.

I'm being quite explicitly science fiction in this one, and I've tried to create a scenario which gives the worms a good chance of getting it right this time.

I think it will be called Anatomy of an Invasion

I'd like to hear from you if you're interested in giving some feedback about early drafts, or if you have ideas for nice things that those worms might do to people.

I've written about 30,000 words right now, but there's still more to write, and I'd like to take my time over editing, so it may be months before the story is up; there were a few glitches in "Little Indians" that I wouldn't want to repeat.
