My story is now live at Tor.com! Edited by the amazing Ann VanderMeer. Jaw-dropping cover art by Julie Dillon. Here's the teaser text:
Generation after generation, engineers have maintained the barricade, a shield that protects civilization against Turbulence, this strange force that destroys both minds and machines. As Turbulence grows ever more intense and the barricade begins to fail, can Ritter live up to the demands of his father, an engineer the equal of any hero in the Five Great Classical Novels, as they struggle to prevent this civilization from falling like every civilization has before it?
