I’m very pleased to announce I have a new story out. This one’s another science fiction flash piece called Artificial Wife and you can read it for free on the Story Shack Magazine website.
Unbelievably, this is my twentieth publication so I’m especially happy that it also has a cool illustration by Michael Ilkiw.
As usual, I won’t spoil the plot but here’s the opening.
Most of the time I can almost believe she’s real.
She’s not, she’s a Mark IV Remote Surrogate – a “mote”. My real wife, Annabel, is back on Earth but the mote’s a perfect copy, identical in every way; despite the fact that my wife encouraged me to mix things up a bit and “enhance” a couple of key attributes.
If you do read it (it’s not long so it’s not a big investment), drop me a comment either here or on Story Shack to let me know what you thought.[Out Now – Artificial Wife by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 17th July 2014]
