About E L Russell

Educated in mathematics and trained in research, I have spent ten years writing White Papers for corporations on emerging technologies. My current writings reflect an eclectic interest in the impact these new technologies may impose on individuals and social groups. My latest research into programming genetic code and brain development has led to the COHORT novels: Deadly Awakenings, Evolutis Rising, OnSet/ReSet, and Genecaust.

The series of novels is supported by several short stories that demonstrate people dealing with the personal and social consequences of the emerging science, of Epigenetics; the ability to re-program inheritable genetic code. Through logical extensions of this promising science, new powers emerge, including the ultimate social-network and possibility of extremely long life.

Review by: Red Jackson on Sep. 04, 2013 :
I felt that the ending could have been stronger. The foreshadowing was very bold and threatened to ensure predictability. Even so, the story maintained conflict and mystery right to the last page. A rewrite, as mentioned by another reviewer, would improve the story but it's pretty good the way it is right now. I would recommend this story for a quick read. Thanks for offering this free short story.

Interesting premise, but the story drags. Revision with a "show, don't tell" approach would help the reader connect with the character and the setting with more engagement. I'd be interested in reading the story again after a rewrite.

Fluent and funny. I was led to it by my interest in the theory of why something is funny. Even wrote a book about it. Has to do with winning I think. Write more please.
