My futuristic science fiction story “Scow of Destiny” has been posted on the June “End of the World” issue of online magazine InfectiveInk. As you might guess, this story is about the end of the world, or at least the end of a galaxy-spanning star empire. We see that the mighty fall, but the little people go on. In this case, the little person is a garbage collector — as in garbage scow. The word “scow” caused discussion among early readers of the story, a number of whom hadn’t encountered the word before. So what do you think about scows? You can read “Scow of Destiny” free online at http://infectiveink.com/?p=2363.
