Free Fiction Monday: Sole Survivor
From the award-winning, bestselling Retrieval Artist Universe comes a story about a pulse-pounding race for survival and a foreshadowing of dangerous events yet to unfold.
Takara Hamasaki made plans to leave the far-flung starbase for weeks, but something always stopped her. Until today. Now, she finds herself running for her life as bodies fall all around her, cut down by dozens of identical-looking men. If only she can reach her ship, maybe she can escape. Because one thing seems perfectly clear: The men attacking the starbase plan to leave no survivors.
“Sole Survivor,” first published in Fiction River: Pulse Pounders, appears in a different form in Book Seven of the Anniversary Day Saga, Starbase Human.
“Sole Survivor,” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only. The story is also available in ebook through various online retailers here.

How do you do this, week after week without a perceived blip in creativity? My wife and I so enjoy your writing, even Business Musings, and your book reading (or non-reading.) Blessings to you.
