Lesann Berry’s Edge of Eternity

Michael Neno's illo for The Edge of Eternity

Illustrated by Michael Neno, Lesann Berry’s third episode of her Alternate History Archive appears in The Digest Enthusiast No. 7. Here’s the opening paragraph:

“The ruin crumbled around Kiefer, hunks of concrete dropping away to litter the ragged piles of rubble below. Inside the fractured shell of the embassy, in the days after the bombs finally stopped falling, and before the stench of the fallen became unbearable, he bore witness to the destruction. Camera crews swarmed over the twisted jungle of rebar, shutters snapping, and journalistic fever roaring. He and a handful of other soldiers stood watch, scanning the devastation for aggressive response. The others, also like him, bit the insides of their cheeks raw, chewing the words down to crumbs so they couldn’t escape. Instead, they spat them out, brief splatters of saliva coagulating in the ash and dust until the rapacious summer air sucked away the tiny oases of moisture.”

Opening Lines

Story illustration by Michael Neno“Kiefer dropped down the rabbit hole. Deep inside his head he knew the descent into empty darkness was just another shot at teasing Death, an opportunity to rub shoulders with the Reaper. He sucked in a breath, filling his lungs with foul air as he swung from the edge of the trapdoor, arms and fingers straining with the effort.”

Opening paragraph from “Down the Rabbit Hole” by Lesann Berry, episode two of the Alternate History Archive, from The Digest Enthusiast book six, June 2017. Illustrated by Michael Neno.
