This is the first story in the Kindle book I compiled. It's a collection of the first stories I managed to get published. There is a little something for everyone here. Humor, war, science fiction. If you reasonably enjoy this piece consider purchasing the collection: Here
In the Blink of an Eye:
Up until now, the grinding gears of history revolved at such a slow pace that our perception of it was like a puzzle, the constantly changing fragments creating an eternally changing picture inhabited and shaped by generations, but progress made it possible for the change to arrive in the form of a flash just a billionth of a second long with a blinding light and the pain of flesh-searing fire that burned away the world I knew as if it were covered in lighter fluid.
This Story was originally published by ebook publisher Third Flatiron publishing in their "War Stories" anthology. It is a collection of war's most terrifying anecdotes.
