Story Recommendation: "Deep Moves" by William Highsmith

Abyss and Apex has a story I particularly liked this month by William Highsmith. I tried to give this one a critique before it was published, but I enjoyed it so much that I really just enjoyed it the way it is. It's a quick read, chock full of emotion and story, and it's also free! I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. :)

Read it, it was a fun story.
The ending didn't feel satisfying to me, though.

I enjoyed it. I felt disoriented in it at certain points, but I thought the ending was kind of fun. Normally I don't like what I perceive to be "trick" endings, but this one was quite plausible. I wish I'd had a little more sense of the personality of the main character.

Hey, David. Allen Dunne is a chess master who writes a column for the U.S. Chess Federation. He is their Director of Correspondence Chess. (Deep space chess definitely falls into that category.) He included a link to the story in his June newsletter ("The Link is in the Mail") on the U.S. Chess Federation web site.

There's a real-life Earth/Space match going on now:
You can vote online for the next move to help Earth beat astronaut Greg Chamitoff :)
