In honor of Short Story Month, another of my short stories will be available as a FREE Kindle Download all weekend, May 24 - 28, 2013.
The last thing that our
main character in this 3000-word short story remembers is a horrific
battle which ended in the bright flash of an explosion. He wakes beside a
small cabin but doesn't know where he is. Has he been brought here by
his comrades? Did he run away? The shelter is welcome but, as he quickly
discovers, this cabin is like no place he has ever been. As events
unfold, he is swept up by increasingly mysterious events that culminate
in a most surprising ending.
The Gate of Heaven is the lead story in my recently-released collection, The Gate of Heaven and Other Story Worlds. If you like this story, consider getting the entire collection. It's available both for Kindle and as a paperback.
