Little Rock novelist Kevin Brockmeier has a science-fiction-ish story that’s being serialized this week at the Five Chapters website. It’s called “The Lady with the Pet Tribble,” and at least through the first three installments, its a love story about a space captain and the titular character. A tribble is a furry, sometimes pink pet.

Brockmeier has a story collection, “The View from the Seventh Layer,” coming out in March.
