Product Description

A team of scientists has assembled government funding and a staggering number of chimpanzees to train in communicating via keyboard. Jackie is a promising beginner, and Harold is an up-and-comer, but Billy is a failure who types nothing but gibberish. Today, Billy is being transferred to the San Diego Zoo, but before he goes, he has a few things to say.

The Bard Effect is a short-short story at a little over 1800 words. It was originally published in Amazing Stories magazine, edited by Kim Mohan.

Bridget McKenna ( is a freelance writer, editor, and designer. She lives in Seattle.
