My short story “Play of The Game,” is online in Cosmonauts Avenue!
It has Total War, waffle fries, pandas, and pirate armies.One of the reasons I wrote this story was because I couldn’t play Total War on my crappy laptop. So I imagined what that must be like, based on Youtube trailers and playing Shogun years ago. Shout out to C.J. Llego and Bükem Reitmayer for the great edits and thank you to Martone’s 2019 workshop who saw an earlier draft.
