Firemaker (2014)

The sun had set on summer, but the sky was still aglow. Flames spilled from the dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore in white and green and gold; and the smoke stole the sparks from the Arno River, and flung them all across Florence.

Firemaker is a short story I wrote for Science Chronicles, a short story competition where the theme is “science and technology.”

Unfortunately, my story was rejected, as the science and technology of Renaissance Italy was not what the judges had in mind.
