My story at Daily Science Fiction: “Magic Rules Zero Through Four”

My flash fiction story, “Magic Rules Zero Through Four” was just published by Daily Science Fiction! Only 475 words. Read it here:

In the author story comments, I talk about what led to this story:

“My favorite words are but and what if. One day I thought about the way that the laws of thermodynamics begin with zero. What if magic had rules that started with zero, too? Our understanding of thermodynamics gives us great powers, but what powers would the rules of magic give us? This story offers one answer, but what if there are better answers?”

My next novel, Immunity Index, goes on sale May 4.
