A short story
Thanks, Christina. I'm writing away. I'm glad you enjoyed POTUS.
Brilliant. I love that the president had the balls to stand by his decision...
I like the debate on ethical behavior, then the unpredictable twist. Great read.
Ultimately the same effect as an EMP attack. I was reading a book about what the aftermath of an EMP attack would be like and ultimately had to stop reading it because it was so depressing. As others have said, it’s great that President Judson had the convictions to sacrifice himself to save others. Can’t wait to read the sequels that you have in the works.
Geeez, Bill. This nicely crafted story creeped me out. Question from one writer to another: Did you already know how it would end before you started writing the story?
Another good one with a good twist by having more mutants show and then the President himself. I wonder though, how many more mutants there are and if they're fighting a losing battle?
Holy crap, a very well-crafted story, and the President understood what needed to be done and did not flinch.
“What happens to the energy Ms. X absorbs?” the vice president asked.
The very thing I asked myself before the question was raised! I can go with "not knowing".
A fun read, Bill.
Wow! What an ending! I am waiting for the sequel!
Excellent story, loved how you developed the characters. Question, how did you come up with all of the names?
Wonderful story! The President did the right thing. But, if I may, and I say this with the humblest of intentions, I believe the story would've been just a tad stronger had you started with a hint that the story was supernatural/scifi. It takes a few paragraphs before the reader understands it's about a lady absorbing electricity, and from that point the story is really engaging because it's such a cool idea. Hint at the great stuff from the start! Just my opinion😅.
Obeying the rules to the end!!
And that's why so many Americans have guns.......to protect themselves against excessive users of electricity.
Ripping yarn! Wish I had ideas like that!
People who can absorb electricity? Holy shit, that's a deep idea. I got to borrow some variant of that for my work.
But I really get your point here. We'd really be up the creek these days without the old grids.
Thanks for another great read, Bill.
