When the ringing school bell signals an air raid drill at Hill Elementary, Thomas Lingonberry is the only student who follows protocol, climbing under his desk and curling into a ball to protect himself from the Red Menace. Everyone else races outside thinking it's a fire drill. This wouldn't have mattered at all, but for the fact that a Martin B-26 Marauder carrying two improperly-attached bombs was passing overhead at the very same time.

Duck is a novelette-sized story that recalls pivotal moments in Thomas Lingonberry's life, beginning with the events of April 16, 1957 - the day he earned the nickname "Bomb Boy" - and continuing on into adulthood.

BONUS: "Duck" includes the short-short stories "Hope" and "Magic."
