Friday Flash Fiction: The Emporer's New Force Field

A little slice of space opera this week:

The Emperor’s New Force Field
By Gareth D Jones

Thi story now appears in the Illuminations anthology.

I guess the title probably gave the ending away, but I think you can get away with it in such a short story.

Have you ever read "Golden the Ship Was-Oh! Oh! Oh!" by Cordwainer Smith? This reminded me of it, a little, and I think you'd like it.

I've read all of Cordwiner Smith, but a long time ago. He's one of my favourites.

Short but sweet; has the air of a space-age fairy tale about it.
