Short story: "Legacy of the Great Eater"
My short story "Das Vermächtnis des Großen Essers" ("Legacy of the Great Eater") has been published in the printed 2005 annual of the German online magazine Alien Contact. You can read the complete story online here. It's about a vaguely cyberpunkish near future Berlin where the public transportation system has taken over and the remaining humans try to get by on what they can steal from the self-refilling vending machines. It's mainly about how the technologies of our present and near future might furnish the mythology of future generations. There's also some gender-bending, because it's always fun.
