Peter Wood. Butterflies. (Asimovs January 2015)

asimovs1501A story that reads like the stories that caused me to stop ready Analog some years ago. Not written as was the case with Analog by a scientist, featuring scientists, but by a lawyer, writing about entomologists.

The writing style is very staccato, with short sentences, and the characterisation is simplistic, dialogue basic, and it feels a bit like a Scooby-Doo episode.

    Thanks for reading Butterflies. I know there is an overwhelming amount of fiction out there and I am honored you found time to read my story. Good thoughts.
    You made me laugh with the Scooby Doo comment. I grew up watching that show- the original before Scooby Dum and Scrappy Doo.
    By the way, I used to go hiking through the NC State Teaching Forest until the school abruptly closed it to outsiders. Hmmm. You don’t suppose. . .
    Pete
