A young man wakes up and discovers he is the new guy in an army unit on an alien world. Infinite Darkness, my third tale in the Final Duty universe, examines one day in the life of Denton Alexander, caught in combat on an alien world.
I quizzed my youngest son, an Army veteran, for procedural details while writing it. Infinite Darkness is a 7,000 word short story that uses a loop literary technique I enjoy and have used in other short stories.
Infinite Darkness is available free to newsletter subscribers.
