One thing I never anticipated when I joined the Swarm Authors' discussion group, aka 'consortium,' was the nature and volume of discussions that fly around. These folks are serious about the Swarm Cycle stories. Dropping an idea, or even the hint of an idea, is like dropping a Mentos into a bottle of Coke. You NEVER know what will come out.
In this case, a comment by Duke Nukem, 3rd Aye, combined with Thinking Horndog's Surprise, Surprise! caused my story - Don't Blame Me!. It is in the queue and should post sometime after 7PM along with the latest chapter of The Times They Are A Changing.
One of you readers commented to me that I write non-Swarm-like Swarm stories. :)
Let me know what you think.
