On April 15th the year 2145 at 42 minutes past midnight, “The Event” happened.
Everyone became immortal…and sterile.
Dr. Vivian Toujours for 75 years, has been working on a cure for this strange disease. In a world where everything lives forever- except one organism(read to find out!), what is a scientist to do?
This story grabbed my mind and f#!&d with it. What’s even more cool, is the author even admits in her bio that she hopes to mess with our minds.
Good job, D.K.!
But seriously deep down, my psyche wanted a conclusion or some kind of sequel. I read this story as if I was there in the year 2145 and needing answers. For such a short work, the story highlights possible political and social scenarios- all plausible to me.
One question I need answered right now:
Can we please have a part 2 of some kind?
Just kidding! I know the power of the short and D.K.Cassidy wields it well!
