Using the exercises for setting on Saturday pricked up my attention to detail while editing a late night collection from the last few weeks of school. The intrusion of technology inspired this science fiction fantasy--a theme and character woven into Genevieve's Reach. The interior setting of the large, gray-toned laboratory that is more like a warehouse has rattled around in my brain for over half my life. Where did this huge room with low lights and a threatening atmosphere exist in my past? I hope I've described it with some clarity.
