Red Colony is proud to present two more exclusive stories, Rise of Mars by Chris Schubert and Counting Stars by Jason Galore. Rise of Mars is the continuation of Chris's ongoing novel, previously untitled. Jason calls his Counting Stars "a short piece about the latter days of colonized Mars with bits of modern relevence spread thorughout." Here's what I had to say about it:
Your story is brilliant. It begins slowly, introducing the setting and the character, all with an impending doom, an emptiness that conveys the character's detest for beauty and for love. Her revolution is certain, but as readers we do not know what form it will take. The Zubrin Festival (love the name!) is portrayed perfectly, the setting as real as the world you have described. Senani is wonderfully described, and the relationship that he shares with Cheyenne builds in intensity as sincerely as if it happened in real life, with the most intense moment at climax.
This is a good one... read it!
