Overview

The year is 2169 and Mars has been transformed into a world not unlike rural America. Small towns. Farms. Churches.

Dr. John Simon arrives from Earth, ready to take on the job of administering to the citizens of Milton Colony. Only the doctor soon discovers those who break the laws and morals of the colony are branded, quite literally, as their punishment.

This the doctor cannot abide.

But to change Milton Colony means not only adjusting the attitudes of the local minds and the government, but also a revelation of all the colonists' nasty little secrets.

"The Impulse to Punish" is a short story of approximately 10,000 words. This and 15 other dark fantasy and horror tales involving the John Dee character are available in the collection, Sands of Time: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/sands-of-time-ty-johnston/1112409687

Ty Johnston was born in Kentucky. After earning a degree in journalism, he spent the next two decades as a newspaper editor. During that time he wrote numerous short stories, nearly all of which have been published in print or digital formats. In his forties, now a former journalist, he decided it was time to get serious about his fiction writing. He is the author of The Kobalos Trilogy of epic fantasy novels, City of Rogues, Road to Wrath and Dark King of the North. He has been published online at Every Day Fiction, Demonic Tome, The Ranfurly Review, Flashes in the Dark and other venues. His stories have also appeared in print in the anthologies "Deadlines," "The Return of the Sword" and "Demons: A Clash of Steel Anthology." Ty's main writing and reading interests generally are in the horror and fantasy genres, but he also enjoys branching out into literary works from time to time.
