Striking It Rich

Rich with dialogue. No, this post isn't about me it's about a story on Abandoned Towers; First Contact by Heather Parker. This is really a fantastic story even though it's not heroic fantasy. The emotion and poignancy that's crafted here is amazing and it is all done through dialogue. A subtle, human drama that both has us caring for the characters and thinking of all the others that it could apply to. Very, very well done.

Anytime. (Nothing says 'pretentiously clever' better than an extended metaphor, and I am the King of Extended Metaphors.)
