Treats? Yes, Halloween treats. More on that later. First, we’re going through the wormhole with Ellie Garratt.
Where Would Your Wormhole Go with Ellie Garratt
**Removing space helmet** That’s better. It’s great to be breathing Space Dock 19 air again. Thank you for having me here today, Mary.
Imagine you had the power to create a wormhole and it could lead anywhere in time and space. Where or when would it go? Would you even want to or should you even have that kind of power?
I’m a life-long science fiction and anything space-related fan, so I’ve given these kinds of questions a lot of thought over the years. Would I want the power? Yes. Would I want the responsibility? No. So, like all writers I’ll just imagine it’s a two-time deal and a limited time opportunity. I can go somewhere today and then come back almost as soon as I left, even if in reality I was away for a few years. If I hurry, I’ll be back in time for tea. See. Being a writer has its benefits.
I would go a few thousand years into the future, when hopefully humanity is not only still around, but also space travel is quick and easy. I’d hop on board a spaceship undertaking deep space exploration, and enjoy a few years of being both an astronaut and scientist. Then, I’d come back to 2013 and dream of the day I’ve earned enough money to go to Adult Space Camp.
What about you? Would you want that kind of power? If yes, where would your wormhole go?
Taking Time and Other Science Fiction Stories
A collection of dark science fiction stories that transport you to different times and worlds, where terror takes hold of your soul and not everything is as it first appears to be. The future of humanity must be decided in Next Phase. Winning the Planetary Lottery is not as lucky as it first seems in Schrodinger’s Gamble. An apocalypse and its aftermath threaten to tear one couple apart in Daiker’s Children. In Life As I Know It a reclusive man finds both his heart and home invaded during an alien harvest. In Taking Time a vampire seeking shelter on a distant planet finds himself facing a very different kind of demon, after answering a frontier settlement’s plea for help.

The tea in the cup across from me ripples. She’s here. “Scone?” I say.
When the napkin settles, I sip my cup. Early Gray, hot. “Tell me a story, Jane.”
What stories remain inside Jane Austen? What fates had she envisioned for some of her characters? Such as Willoughby and Charlotte. After some time in the North, does Lydia still love her Wickham? Did you guess I’d pick Jane?
Meet Me At:
I’m at Ellie’s today. I think I’m giving a star tour.
You can also find me at Untethered Realms where I reveal how I get my geek on. I’m sure most of you won’t be too surprised, but come tell me how you get in touch with your inner geek.
Don’t forget to give me a little Halloween for your treat. Where would you go with a wormhole?
