Prepare to read this in your best movie trailer voice:
In the 30th Century, history changed. An army of microscopic robots survived extinction; now they’re sweeping through the galaxy unchecked. They’ve destroyed thousands of worlds, they’ve taken countless lives, and they’re evolving. They’ve sampled the human brain, studied it, and modified their neural network, making them smarter and more imaginative. Their military strategies have become more innovative… and more effective. Earth’s space fleet is barely holding on as colony after colony falls to the Swarm.
But now history is changing again. The Swarm says they’ve realized the evil of their ways, and they wish to repent for their sins. They’re asking for humanity’s forgiveness. Should the humans forgive the Swarm for all they’ve done, or is this another of the Swarm’s innovative tricks? Find out in the next Tomorrow News Network adventure: “Children of the Swarm.”
Update: I had originally planned for this story to come out on Friday, May 31st. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to postpone it to Monday, June 3rd.
Update as of June 3rd: Okay, I thought I was back on schedule, but apparently I was wrong. I don’t want to make excuses for this delay except to say that 2013 has not been very kind to me. The story will be ready by the end of the week (probably Wednesday). If you’ve subscribed to this blog, you’ll get an update when it’s posted.
