In this episode, I have a special guest helping me out! Cash Edison, my brother and fellow writer, is reading the part of Henry in this short story. Here's the story blurb for this episode: Annie is a grown woman now, past all that childish adventuring stuff, but when her cousin Henry claims to have overheard instructions to buried treasure she is forced to decide whether or not to invest her belief in one more childish adventure.

This week's episode is a sci-fi short story called The Stone Trader.  With humankind scattered among the stars in poverty-stricken colonies, only two things connect the last remnants of the race: a makeshift government, too busy arguing over a chain of command to be of use to its citizens, and traders, distributing necessities as they fly between colonies. The Stone Trader trades in many things, but rocks are his specialty. He thinks himself an expert on the subject until two strange women claim to have found a rock like no other. It is a hoax or could it be the most extraordinary discovery humankind has ever made? An origin short story set in the Stone Keeper universe.
