Short Story Press Presents Waiting For Martin
Publisher: Short Story Press
Waiting for Martin is set in a nebulous future-never in which catastrophic environmental change has returned ancient beings to Earth, as well as raining down a disastrous helping of new ones. A family of children try to make their way home to their older brother, who is their guardian, when a bit of environmental fallout gets in their way. Some personal changes make the journey even more interesting for the one "normal" member of the family.
