The Morning After After
In Bryon Havranek’s “A Mad Dash for Home”:
- What has happened to Doc Matheson? Where is she?
- How might the sequels play out if the story were expanded to the length of a novella or novel?
In J. Daniel Batt’s “Necronaut”:
- Why are signs posted in Old Norse, of all languages? What does their function seem to be, if nobody can read them? Are they an oblique allusion to Valhalla?
- What is the link’s name? Who is Kate? Does the narrator have a name?
- What might explain the discrepancy in time as experienced by the narrator and observed by the controllers? Does it seem to have a function in the story?
- What does the narrator see in the afterlife? What conclusion does she appear to draw from it?
In Bill Kowaleski’s “Discovered!”:
- How might the revolutionaries have avoided suspicion, especially with such a large boat?
- Do they plan to capture or murder Imelda Gates? If they plan to kill her, couldn’t they have already done it, and more easily than by staging a military operation?
- Where is Jackson Bain?
- How does the raid fit into Mira’s long-range plans?
