Rickette wasn’t prepared for the call. He’d carefully compartmentalized each part of his life, both physical and online, but when he is forced to return home his worlds suddenly collide. He’s never had to carry a casket before, and he never expected he’d be burying more than his mother.
Grief Protocols is the first in the Rising Waters Series of near future short stories. Similar to Black Mirror or Close Encounters before it, this episodic anthology follows everyday characters into a world challenged by accelerating technology and inevitable climate change.
Each story stands alone, but together they paint a picture of what the world might be, just around the corner.
