The fine folks at Flashes in the Dark have just published my flash fiction story called “BETA”. Not surprisingly, this story emerged as I was playing around with a new App for my iphone that lets me print pictures directly from the phone. It’s way too convenient as a way to use lots of expensive toner and paper, but it’s fun. Anyway, I started thinking about what else a printer driver could do. Why, it is conceivable that you could print pictures from the future or from an alternate reality. Would that be a good thing or a bad thing? For Ralph, it was a decidedly bad thing.
