New short story – ‘Allegiance’

I’ve put up another short story, called Allegiance. Hope you like it.

It’s another experiment‌—‌I wanted to see if I could write something purely in dialogue. I’ve seen this kind of thing used before, both as part of a book (e.g. Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game), and even as a whole book (A Closed Book by Gilbert Adair), but it’s hard to pull off. I’ve heard quite a few complaints about the dialogue-only passages in Ender’s Game (although I personally like them‌—‌they add a nice touch of mystery from the very start).

Anyway, I think I’ve done okay in this story. You can read it here, and you can check out my other short stories here.
