The Last Child
During the final battle of Uchmal in Alone, Em Savage sent troops of fighters out from the city to engage the enemy as a delaying tactic. This allowed the time necessary for fuel to be synthesized so the Birthday Children could evacuate their home.
The Last Child is a story about one group of fighters as they struggle to return to the city in order to board the leaving troop ships and evacuate.
On August 25, 2018, the idea for a new story was solicited by from the members of the Sigler Junkies group on Facebook, when Scott Sigler asked for ideas to write for a new anthology focusing on an apocalypse.
In the meantime! I have another short story due. This one is about an apocalypse. Can be pre-, during or post-apocalypse. The anthology editors would love it if I did one from the Siglerverse.
So I ask you, Junkies, for any idea. What's a good "apocalypse" within the existing Siglerverse in which I could set a short story? I would likely use secondary characters or brand new characters. It can be anything, from the Kissyman Era, Modern Day Era (INFECTED, EARTHCORE, etc), Crypt Era or GFL Era.
Prizes of "free books" were awarded to the Junkies who provided the story idea. Winning Junkies were (in no particular order):
- Daryl Delancy
- Scott Clutter
- Nathan Joslin
- John Gunn
|Trivia: When the story was originally submitted to the anthology editor, it was titled Abandoned. The story name was changed prior to publication.|
