About this Story
Deficiency is the second science-fiction project I worked on and the first of significant length. The initial goal was to write a short story for submission to a contest. It had to be under 4,000 words, but that never worked out. My first completed draft missed the mark by more than 62,000 words! I have no idea how that happened... The latest draft is close to 85,000 words.
Deficiency stands alone and takes place on the planet world of Garadia, which is the only science-fiction setting I have at this time. Although I am not planning any direct sequel to Deficiency, there is a lot to learn about Garadia and I am hoping to revisit this world with other stories.
