Quantum Entanglement, flash fiction, issue 46, March 15, 2019

Get to know Kai Hudson:

When did you start writing?

In second grade. I wrote a collection of short stories about unicorns. Illustrated, of course. 

When and what and where did you first get published?

My first professional sale, a short sci-fi piece about alien bee-mermaid hybrids, was just released in the March 2019 issue of Clarkesworld. 

Why do you write?

Because otherwise I'd be busy toppling dictator regimes and saving the universe, and who would want that?

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?

Sometimes the world we live in is a bit too painful to write about. I like spreading messages about brighter futures.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

This tends to change, though I always enjoy reading John Scalzi and Blake Crouch. Fredrik Backman makes me smile, and I rarely read a book by Stephen King that doesn't devour me. My favorite story is actually a Chinese fable about a frog in a well that teaches humility and the dangers of ignorance.

What are you trying to say with your fiction?

That we could all benefit from a little more empathy.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

Her last words were: "So what does this button do?"
