Innovative. Original. Intriguing. An experimental. A micro-fiction. Pod is my brainchild.
It’s basically a sci-fi, but with a supernatural kind of feeling. The author wanted the micro-fiction to feel more supernatural despite a sci-fi narrative.
The author also wants to express a virus like theme within the narrative, such as the Pod, being a foreign agent, and the biohazard team, antibodies.
But as viruses eliminate antibodies, they take over the host’s immune system. Here, the Pod(s) take over, to initiate an invasion.
