Thanks to the help of my fearless beta reader Raven, “The Janus Choice” is off to eSpec Books for consideration for inclusion in the upcoming hard science fiction collection BEYOND THE CRADLE edited by Mike McPhail. This is the little story that finally could. Born seven years ago as a 24 hour story challenge at Writers of the Future, it’s finally come to fruition. It took a long time to find the right ending for this one because before it was too warm and fuzzy. That’s not a problem now, this ones about as dark as “Blankets”.
