All harm is not malicious.
TamLin grabbed the opportunity to leave his native universe to escape his mother. Living in another universe as an illegal immigrant is the only way he can outmaneuver others’ efforts to puppeteer him.
He’s a sensate, able to detect and interpret eddies of psychic energy and space-time without the need of tools and technology. That’s a valuable ability—and he’s an expert with it. He prefers loitering outside the law so he can take care of the manipulative jerks who work their ways around the system…and circumstances outside TamLin’s control mean his current target knows he’s onto him.
Now it’s a race of who can destroy the other first.
A sci-fi novella featuring people who have conflict management issues, and who may or may not have good reason for them.
E-book has two versions of the story: one with salty language and one without.
