Short Story Press Presents Search The Ethernet by Ona Jo-Ellan Bass

“Search the Ethernet” is set in a quiet neighborhood in Central City, in Some State, in the US. The characters include a single mom, her children and dog, and a gaming group who are meeting for an evening of fun, as well as a lot of people who know how to say, “I don’t think I can help you”. It encapsulates a crisis on what should have been a quiet evening of just hanging out online and having fun.
