Overview

Five stories of a distant -- and not so distant -- future.

The title story "The Forever Soldier" features a far-future infantry soldier who can't stop fighting, no matter how many times she dies. A journalist searching for that one big story in "Human Interest" uncovers more than he bargained for on a mining colony at the edge of known space. "The Liar" finds one woman preparing for the end of the world in her own unique way. In "Reboot," a time travel pioneer facing forced retirement sends himself on the most important mission of his life. And in the award-winning, near-future story "One Sun, No Waiting," an old motel owner tries to maintain an oasis of normal in the Nevada desert as the sun dims and civilization falls apart around him.

"Annie Reed draws a pitch-perfect portrait of the Nevada desert and peoples it with folks so real I want to drive out by Vegas and check up on how everyone's doing. Its quiet voice and fast pace weave together to make any reader care." -- Cindie Geddes, Editor, Lucky Bat Books.

"A friend recommended the works of Annie Reed. I was not disappointed. In fact, if her other shorts are as good as this one, I plan to read many more." -- Carol Davis Luce, author of NIGHT GAME (reviewing Annie Reed's short story CHANGELING)

"The appearance of a new Annie Reed story is a treat. Try one and you'll be hooked." -- Dave Hendrickson, author of CRACKING THE ICE, forthcoming from WestSide Press
