I would like to submit my short story: Mycelial

https://realphillipcarter.substack.com/p/mycelial-aprils-free-short-story

An existentialist fungus muses on identity, community, plurality, and what it might mean to become an individual in a world where 'the One' is the ruling personality.

It is 2402 words long.

Thanks for creating the Lunar Awards!

Yeah, I read all of the other stories to date when I added mine, and our showing of urban fantasy was a bit light! Glad to mix it up a bit.

Thanks!

Heya, here is my submission!
