Donald P. Goodman III
An old-style, sci-fi romp, when a first-person narrator encounters a problem in deep space. Don't look for deep meaning here; this one is just fun, pure and simple. Part of a series, the Guildsmen, which has a few stories written and material for many more.
A very, very short story regarding an average person forced to make a very impactful choice. Explores the nature of our choices, as well as revisits Tolkien's common theme of the most ordinary of people being capable of the most extraordinary of choices.
Sort of a combination of horror and philosophical fiction, this short story delves into and dwells upon the nightmare that is an immortal soul without supernatural redemption. The reader will notice that the main character is without the consolation of religion; this factor is by design. Only Christianity can really resolve the conundrum of the philosophical certainty of the immortality of the soul combined with the problem of evil. Our main character's depression, then, is reasonable---and horrifying.
