A Colour Like Orange: Fiction from CG Inglis, Part 1

The Sci-Fi-O-Rama team is excited to be taking the site in a new direction with our first foray into original fiction!

Over the coming year, we will be presenting “A Colour Like Orange: Stories from a Broken World“, a monthly series of interlocked stories from Toronto writer CG Inglis.

Riding the edge between gritty realism and vivid speculation, CG’s stories take us to a world much like our own, but with the boundaries of reality wearing thin. Strange forces slip into the world through the cracks, and otherwise ordinary people find their lives drastically changed as they slip out. At the crux of it all is a mysterious substance called “powder” and the powerful Institute of Applied Research which strives to understand and harness its potential.

Combining elements of cyberpunk, psychedelia, and psychological horror, CG Inglis has created a work that we found arresting and stylish – a great match for the aspirations of this site!

Without further ado, we proudly present the first instalment of the series, “A Colour Like Orange“.
