It’s what I wrote for the 24-hour story challenge at the Writers of the Future workshop in 2008.

For this exercise, participants are given a random object and sent out to strike up a conversation with a stranger and choose a random book at the library. Then you write a story using these three elements. Mine were: a worry stone, a dinner conversation about Coober Pedy, and a guidebook to New Zealand. I’d recently read Tim Flannery’s book The Future Eaters, which cites an account of the first Dutch contact with the New Zealand Maori in 1642, when the sailors who rowed out from the ship to meet the local tribe were (apparently) set upon by warriors in canoes, beaten to death, taken back to shore and eaten.

I wondered what the tribe’s neighbours thought when they found out: “Our first contact with the outside world in 400 years and you did what?”
