Free Fiction Monday: “Alien Influences”
Years ago, John paid for crimes he committed as a child. Horrible crimes based on alien ritual and intended to help the victims, not hurt them. Now, alienated from his fellow humans, he works as a bounty hunter. But his latest job takes him a little too close to the past he tries to forget. And this time, he might not escape with his life.
