The Shell universe is the home universe of the Jokka.


Gender, Identity and Loss Among Aliens

Author's CommentsEdit

The Jokka are aliens with three sexes—female, male and neuter—who also have a chance to turn from one sex to another at two separate puberties. Recent climate changes have been harsh on them, and the breeding sexes are particularly prone to strokes and other forms of stress-related disability. These stories deal with gender, identity and loss and are not light reading. They were among my first published pieces. If you want to travel to a completely different world and be immersed—there are no humans in these stories—try these. The list below is chronological by the world's timeline.
