Meet the Author

S.A. Barton lives in coastal Virginia with his wife, teen stepson, two under-5s, and demanding cat (as they all are). His path to the present was a strange, sometimes harrowing, and winding one; you may find this reflected in his writing. He has previously appeared in the pages of Penumbra magazine, in Daily Science Fiction, and in OMNI Reboot. He's a winner of the first Amazing Stories Gernsback Writing Contest. He is also proud to be a self-published indie author with dozens of short ebooks and collections to his credit, which may be found through sabarton.com. He also tweets far too much as @Tao23. While most of S.A. Barton's work is in science fiction, some of it strays into other genres such as fantasy, mainstream, alternate history and others -- like the cat, it wanders some.

This story reminds me of the kind of science fiction I read as a kid in one of those pulp magazines. Good stuff.

Very short but an interesting concept. A good read.

Only 17 pages, and it's more of an idea or a beginning of a story than an actual story itself.
