Hub, Issue 75

The fiction in Issue 75 is not so much a story as a sketch. A Little Mystery by Len Bains is a short, well written exploration of what it would be like if you knew everyone's secrets. It's a great idea and the author alludes to some devastating consequences. I'd really like to see it expanded, to have the story unfolded as it happens. I guess that's why this piece is the way it is, otherwise it might just have to be a novel.

Is it stealing to expand on someone else's short story?

Ooh, you are behind on Hub.

Is it stealing to expand? Isn't that what fan fiction does all the time?
