The Model Universe
Six science fiction stories, ranging from dystopian apocalyptic to space opera.
The first story in the collection, “The Model Universe,” explores issues of finiteness through the eyes of a young boy named Tommy. “Nothing Disappears” is the story of a detective who discovers there’s much less to a health clinic than is apparent.
“The Satisfactory Completion of Mr. Janklow” is about a planetary assassin completing his last job. “The Boy In The Garden” questions the definition of murder when ethics become blurred by evolution. “West” is the tale of how a chance encounter with a fox sets a boy and girl free. “The Ocean Won’t Burn” takes us below the surface, as sometimes it is much safer below than above.
