I wrote Project Inversion in the winter of 2009. Â I had been watching birds through binoculars at a friend’s father’s house when the idea for the story started to germinate. Â Kindly enough said friend loaned me said binoculars, and I spent not insignificant portions of the following weeks staring out my windows or wandering about my house with binoculars before my eyes. Frequently I looked through the “wrong” end of things to get a better feel for the world I was imagining, and I have the scars on my shins from bumping into household furniture to prove it (oh the sufferings I undergo for my art…). Â I think this is mostly fun and I hope you enjoy the read.
