Edward Ashton lives with his adorably mopey dog, his inordinately patient wife, and a steadily diminishing number of daughters in Rochester, New York, where he studies new cancer therapies by day, and writes about the awful things his research may lead to by night. He is the author of the novels Three Days in April and The End of Ordinary, as well as several dozen short stories which have appeared in venues ranging from the newsletter of an Italian sausage company to Fireside Magazine, Flash Fiction Online, and Escape Pod.

Science Fiction Love

We love Edward Ashton’s stories for the way they use faraway settings to expose the nature of the humans in them, whether good, bad, or anything in between. Read “Tessa,” a tale of love, loss, and what-ifs in an untethered ship cartwheeling through space.
