Remembrance Dayby Simon Kewin
Remembrance Day – three Science Fiction Short Stories
The Twisted Way
A bounty hunter finds that pursuing their quarry to the lawless Möbius Strip doesn’t work out as well as they’d hoped.
Magnus is a broken-down veteran of the Basilisk war, running a bar on the Möbius Strip. Most of his customers are trying to forget their pasts. He spends his time trying to remember his.
A woman he once knew comes seeking his help on a dangerous mission. When Magnus finds out who is really involved it’s time to reach for his blaster. But then he begins to discover just how unreliable his memories of the war actually are...
Zana spends her nights piecing the Strip’s rage room victims back together, but when one of the gynoids in her care is beaten beyond repair, it’s Zana that feels it worst.
