A post-apocalyptic nomadic warrior, Jerry, finds himself chained to the wall of a Piggly Wiggly with another denizen of the wasteland. They’ve never spoken. They’ve never even met. But, soon they will face a court of justice that cares nothing for right or wrong and be forced to fight to the death. Unless there is another way out.

Reviews:

"This is a very short story, but sci-fi fans will enjoy it, but so will anyone who is fond of short stories, or psychology and dilemmas."

Reviewer: .


Based on the well-known psychology experiment, this sets it in a post apocalyptic prison where two men are sentenced to death. One is a warrior, one is not, but in one hour they are going to fight to the death - unless they choose not to.

The short story manages world-building, character development and establishes the situation purely through two people talking in a cell, and the author has a spare and extremely readable style. It's an enjoyable short, with a nicely ambiguous ending in the style of "The Lady and the Tiger" that adds a lot to the impact.

I will be honest, I probably wouldn't pay money for something this short, but as a free introduction to the author's style and work it is great. It would not disgrace any anthology the author chose to submit it to. Sci-fi fans will enjoy it, but so will anyone who is fond of short stories, or psychology and dilemmas.

Rating: 3
