"One Violet Acre" was the first short story in my Cosmic Background weekly short fiction series. I wrote it in early 2018, some weeks before the project formally started, as part of the initial backlog. I still haven't published all the stories from that initial surge; there are a few I was never happy with, which will probably be brought out someday. This one, on the other hand, I like. It is, as far as I'm concerned, a solid introduction to the life of a frontier spacer in the Angels' Reach - perhaps the most effective introduction to their reality that I'm ever going to write.
