The Lump That ate Long Island is the second in a series of stories that I call Leaving the Cradle. (The first of those being Cargo.). There are about ten stories so far of various lengths in this series, that as I get them finished I will release. I also plan to release the whole series with a number of extra stories as part of an anthology either late this year or early next year.
These stories chronicle the struggles of the human race as they leave their home planet and colonize first Mars, then the other planets in the solar system, and finally move out into the galaxy. There are a lot of lumps and bumps in the road along the way, and this is just the first.
I really hope you will enjoy all of them.
