NewMyths.com issue 20 is now out and available online, including my short science fiction story, Separation Anxiety. Judge Bell presides over a future courtroom on Separation Day. He strives to be fair and impartial. But quantum physics has found a home in the courtroom, and the result seems anything but fair as Judge Bell struggles with the conflict between his judicial duties and the end result. Can a balance be reached, or is his status quo as close as it gets?
