A young man wakes up and discovers he is the new guy in an army unit on an alien world. I wrote Infinite Darkness, while on deployment in the navy and became the third tale in what I later called the Final Duty universe.
The story 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 working on the final draft.
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 one of the stories offered free to newsletter subscribers or click here for a list of online distributors.
