A science fiction short story of the not too distant future, where urban humans live in a perfectly protected world, their cosseted lifestyles enabled by automated retinal recognition technology applied to every device. But what happens when the artificially intelligent systems loses a citizens record?

This is the first part of a much longer story, but this short version stands up on it's own.

My reading of Moonlit Shadow, a Christmas themed short story published in the Leg Iron Books anthology "Christmas lights and darks" December 2018. Like, don't like, but if you do, tell me why.

Leg Iron Books:
On Amazon;

This is a supernatural short story I wrote a long time( Over 30 years!) ago and could never find anywhere I wanted to submit it to. So I've decided to do a small reading and video presentation for anyone who might be interested. Like it or hate it, but let me know exactly why in the comments.
