He's Only HumanHe's Only Human

Science Fiction Age Sept. 1999 I hang out on the Usenet newsgroup rec.arts.sf.written a lot, and I totally forget the context, but one day in a discussion there a guy named Dan Goodman tossed out a few story ideas. One of them caught my fancy, so with his permission I wrote this story.

And having written it, I sold it to Science Fiction Age.

That's really all there is to it; no complicated backstory or anything, just an amusing SF story idea someone suggested that I liked enough to use.

The original magazine is long gone, but the story is available now in The Fifth Science Fiction Megapack, an e-book sampler from Wildside Press. It's one heck of a bargain, 25 stories for just 99 cents.
