My flash fiction story Served is now live at Every Day Fiction. Go forth and enjoy!

Technical note: the URL for this story has an unusual character in it, a Unicode bullet U+2022, encoded as %E2%80%A2. I haven’t seen this on other stories on the EDF website, so I assume it’s a minor oversight. However, I do not wish them to fix it at this point (unless redirects are used) because otherwise links from across the web like this one would break. Cool URI’s don’t change.

Anyway, the story. Go read it, I’ll wait. Ripped from the headlines, it’s about patent trolls, a term that’s been in the news recently. This story is just the teensiest bit inspired by Nancy Kress’s Patent Infringement, which I heartily recommend.

Got any other patent-related stories you can recommend?
