Teapots on Pluto
Are there? Who knows? Scientists Richard Dawkins and Peter Atkins caused a rumpus by comparing belief in God to the unprovable belief that there is a teapot orbiting Pluto. My story, A Teapot on Pluto, is not about God; it's about time travel (yes, my head is stuck in the future, but one of these days I'll get back to the here and now). The teapot has been tucked away in the back of my mind, gathering dust and waiting for its moment, and when I read about the big Atom-Smasher switch-on last month (see post below) I found it.
Read the story here or download it from Scottish Book Trust's excellent site. Check out the stories by other authors too.
I've put lots of hot links within the story, for a truly interactive read. So have fun - click away, and see what you find...
