The Static of the Spheres by Eric Kraft

An interesting short story I picked up for free on the Kindle.

The Static of the Spheres by Eric KraftIt’s the story of a young boy growing up, his close relationship with his grandparents “gumma” and “gumpa”, and the pleasure he gets from building a shortwave radio and FINALLY using it.

Quite an interesting read, that really paints the picture of the love the boy has for his grandparents. And the power of pushing through with a project even if it takes you hours (and the boy counts the hours! and the number of sandwiches!!). Worth a read on a quiet train journey.
