Before the Strandline short stories are written in the voice and perspectives of the children who watched the world collapse under the onslaught of the sun's massive power.
"The Story of Stone" is the fourth installment short story/short reads set in the near-future, immediately following the event horizon, a solar storm so vicious it knocks out the power grid. Stone and Sun's father leave them in the care of an uncle, hoping to rescue their mother. The brother and sister find themselves alone in a hostile and lawless world. As they watch and wait for the adults that love them to make good on promises to return for them, they discover ways to survive among the wreckage, and stumble across friends and neighbors, Mister Wayne and his granddaughter, Gabby. Here are friends who bring them close, teach them the ways of hope and survival, and keep them safe--for a time.
