Excited to see ST. SAM AND THE GENDER MACHINES reach #437 on Wattpad Science Fiction. My little short that could! Please let your followers know about the story and ask them to read and comment. It would be great to novelize the short and I could use positive reinforcement. :) Thanks to all of you for the reads and support.

wrote this story sitting in my hotel room in Grosvenor Square, London, the night before my trip to Oxford University to speak on complex networks. I stumbled on a YouTube video (with nine million views) playing what is called "The Music of Jupiter". I was inspired by the hypnotic and spooky sound. I even embedded the video in the story, and you can listen while reading.
          
          What started as a first contact story, morphed into a story on sentience. And about finding life and awareness in unexpected places. THE MUSIC OF JUPITER is also about mothers, like Miranda, and their importance in our lives. I dedicate this to my own mother Anna Maria, and my sister Lisa (also a mother).
          
          I am brave enough to call this Young Adult fiction, aimed as 12-18-year-olds. But the story transcends age. Hopefully, the 1980 pop culture references are not too obscure, but we live in the age of easy access to information from the web and social media. And Stevie Nicks continues to rock on, twirling away in the present day.
          
          Please share your thoughts and comments, as the community feeling is a wonderful part of Wattpad.  I'd love to connect.

Hi everyone,
          
          Thanks so much for your feedback on ST. SAM. I really loved publishing that story on Wattpad, and the support it created spurred me to write more.
          
          Check out my new short story (SFF, also LGBT themed) THE LIGHTS:  https://www.wattpad.com/311848503-the-lights  It's a mix of fantasy, science fiction, Iceland, and homage to those struggling with cancer (like many Canadians, I was moved by Gord Downie's story over the summer). 
          
          I would love to get your feedback on THE LIGHTS. Please like, comment, and share!
          
          -Anthony
