My short environmental science-fiction piece is up at Queen Mob's Teahouse "set on the edge of a recently built and abandoned Florida resort where contamination has brought about a deceptive landscape to the guards who protect it"

Review at New Flag Media:

"A contemporary riff on Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s classic Roadside Picnic.Time and reality vibrate uncertainly as a security guard protects a ruined and toxic shopping plaza on the Gulf Coast. Everything, including the narrator’s life, is waste. Worth it for details that are well chosen, showing the immense potential of the setting for a longer narrative."
