Litho is a peaceful, isolated colony world on the frontier of space. Nothing bad ever happens there. So when a reporter from the Tomorrow News Network shows up, nobody takes much notice. Nobody except a young colonist named Milo.
Milo is a bit of a news junkie. He knows all about the Tomorrow News Network, a news organization run by time travelers, and he knows all about Talie Tappler, the reporter they’ve sent to Litho. Talie has a reputation for covering war, chaos, and galactic devastation.
So why has Talie come to Litho Colony? What big, breaking news event has attracted her attention? Milo doesn’t know, but he’s determined to find out, because whatever Talie Tappler’s big story is, it cannot possibly be good news.
J.S. Pailly is an artist, writer, and science blogger. In his day job, he works in the news department of a local television station. The 24 hour news cycle can often feel repetitive, even predictable. After covering the same kinds of stories day after day, week after week, year after year, people in the news business may start to feel like they really do know the future–and that is where the inspiration for the Tomorrow News Network came from.
