Read full description of the books:
this is a short story that puts forth an important question: yes, the oregon trail was horrible, but was it horrible enough??
and this version is much worse. it's a destiny you wouldn't wanna manifest.
it is impressive for managing to develop such a wide arc in such a short story, and in a story that is comprised solely of diary entries. not only do we get a story arc that escalates quickly into ineffable terror, but we also get a broad character arc, as our young diarist is changed by what she and her fellow travelers endure.
it's a very surreal tale, without a firm explanation for the events, but no less enjoyable for its ambiguity. some of the imagery reminded me of julianna baggott's "pure" series, in an unexpectedly chilling development.
free tor shorts are continuing to rock my world.

Read information about the authorAndy Marino was born and raised in upstate New York. He spent his childhood orchestrating Lego pirate battles, drawing detailed maps of imaginary video games, and cheating death in Choose Your Own Adventure books. Profoundly influenced by the work of J.R.R. Tolkien and the movie Bloodsport, he started writing his first novel at the age of eleven. Tragically, THE RUNES OF ILLIARM was never completed.
During his teen years, Andy designed sets for school plays and became an expert stockpiler of unfinished art projects. After graduating from NYU with a bachelor’s degree in English, he dedicated himself to writing fiction. The insidious tractor beam of online social networks (like this one!) became the inspiration for UNISON SPARK, a novel about two teens with a secret past fighting the manipulative, all-consuming social network of the future.
