Publication: “Kumara,” by Seth Dickinson
Congratulations to Alpha graduate Seth Dickinson (2006 & 2007), whose short story “Kumara” went up today at Escape Pod:
You asked me why you are alive, and this is the answer: because I was asked to do the impossible, to choose someone to die. And I loved them all, loved them as I loved Kumara, as I loved myself. I could not bear the choice.
You can read or listen to the whole story at Escape Pod’s website, and a complete list of Alpha graduates’ publications and awards is here.
