Nano Contestant - Episode 4: Arctic Survival by Leif Sterling

EPISODE 4 - Arctic Survival

Arctic temperatures are a refiner's fire for convictions, leaving behind fortitude rarely seen in this world.

Roland's secret agenda may be exposed when he is forcefully taken by Pinnacle's security team. If he can endure their interrogation, then he will have to survive whatever Pinnacle throws at him next.

Pinnacle will push the limits of the extra-human abilities of the Tech Games contestants to their absolute breaking points with a 500 mile ultra marathon in the Arctic. By modeling their newest punishing race course after the upper icefields of the Yukon Territory, they can achieve constant subzero temperatures during the day and a staggering -85 °F at nightfall. Cold enough to freeze any cyborg metal!

With no cold weather training, Roland's tiny team must find an outside adviser, fast. Roland's utter survival will depend heavily on a local Russian drunk, Ivan. Will the team be able to hold it together long enough to keep Roland alive?

About the Author

Leif Sterling has always had a rich imagination and an eccentricity for all things technical. He read every door-stoppingly, thick computer manual that he could get his hands on from the time he was twelve on. Not surprisingly, college yielded bachelors and masters degrees in IT for him, which has come in handy when describing futuristic nano systems that haven’t been invented yet.
He enjoys using his powers for good, especially in the craft of storytelling - dreaming up the barely possible, and then placing the reader right in the middle of the action.
Writing is also a great reason to stay inside, in the AC, away from the hot Texas sun where he lives with his beautiful wife, two children and one feisty cat.
