The third story in the A Bastards Tale series.
It’s been published as a submission to the Broken Frontiers anthology project, published February 17 2016! You can still get it, it’s an amazing collection!
For me, this is a story about how my father introduced me to the idea of just how huge the universe is, and turned me onto science as a kid. That shaped a lot about who I’ve become, that night under the stars. And yep, he really did take me on his bike when I was small, strapped to his stomach with a long leather belt. Later I sat behind him. But i think he got that I found it frightening sometimes, and far more often we took one of his cars.
