Written in British English.
This comedic sci-fi quick listen is a short story prequel to the K'Barthan Series.
It is a short story in the sense that it is not long rather than that the plot fits with any particular preconceived "short story" format. Or to put it another way there is no twist in this tale.
It takes place in a contemporary setting, in a parallel universe - as does the whole series. This light piece of witty comedy fiction tells us how two of the characters meet. This story sits in the of British tradition of humour and satire.
There is also an excerpt from Few Are Chosen, the first book in the K'Barthan series, over and above the word count quoted here (which is for the actual story only).

Short Stories are thought by many fine authors to be the most difficult form of writing
Terry Pratchett for example said that many times in his interviews. This example is a good short story well written and humorous. It is very well performed by Mr. Davies and it has had the effect of causing me to spend a credit to learn more of this story.
That however exposes its major flaw as a short story in that it does not complete its story. But I give it a pass on that front and mark it off to good marketing.
