Fittingly, my seventh story published this year is in issue 7 of Science Fiction Trails Magazine.
Set in October 1876, my story is called “Day of the Dead.” An ancient and highly intelligent alien called Legion is exploring Earth and gets curious about the Day of the Dead ceremonies taking place in Mesilla, New Mexico. Legion is a lifeform that uploaded himself to a computer many centuries before and exists as a swarm of nanites. When he enters the brain of a reporter, the townsfolk think he’s possessed by demons. However, a healer named Fatemeh Karimi risks the ire of the townspeople to help the reporter.
Also in the issue are stories by Jennifer Brozek, C.J. Killmer, David B. Riley and more. I have enjoyed every issue of Science Fiction Trails I’ve read, and I look forward to reading all the stories in this one, too.
