Short fiction from Dixon James
Harlan, a pretentious poet looking for social media likes, ventures into the Restricted Zone to craft a viral meme about the dead Elder Civilisation. Something to get him into the next bracket of influencers.
There he meets Percy, an old survivalist hermit ekeing out a life on the toxic sands of what used to be a beach. But is Percy all that he seems?
An old man and a young man, a survivalist and a poet. Harlan should bear in mind that this old dog has some old tricks.
Dry, science fiction humour in another short story from multi genre author Dixon James.
