EMPIRE. REVOLUTION. MAGIC.
Gerrit is the son of Bourshkanya’s Supreme-General. Despite his powerful storm-affinity and the State’s best training, he can’t control his magic. To escape the brutal consequences, he flees.
Celka is a travelling circus performer, hiding both her link to the underground and her storm-affinity from the prying eyes of the secret police. But Gerrit’s arrival threatens to expose everything: her magic, her family, and the people they protect.
The storms have returned, and everything will change.
“Shutdown,” Writers of the Future, Vol. 28, Galaxy Press (2012).
A former ballet dancer turned military commando plunges into a deadly alien forest to discover its hidden military secrets.
“‘Shutdown’ is a beautifully vivid and imaginative story — this is what science fiction is supposed to do.”
— Tim Powers, World Fantasy Award-winning author
Podcast & free e-version of “Shutdown” available from Escape Pod (episode 376).
Shutdown is included in Writers of the Future, vol. 28
“The offerings [in Vol. 28 of the Writers of the Future anthology] are thought provoking and varied, with a general trend toward excellence.”
