First and Final Words of February, 2017

Infected, by Scott Sigler.

First Word: Alida Garcia stumbled through the dense winter woods, blood marking her long path, a bright red comet trail against the blazing white snow.

Final Word: Two clues right there about where this is going.


At the Mountains of Madness, by H.P. Lovecraft

First Word: I am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow my advice without knowing why.

Final Word: ‘Forced into speech’ is a very Lovecraftian sort of predicament.


Spider Kiss, by Harlan Ellison.

First Word: First there was only the empty golden circle of the hot spot, blazing against the silk curtains.

Final Word: They call them stars because they burn.


Version 43, by Philip Palmer.

First Word: I was in a cheerful mood.

Final Word: The fact that he’s a nigh-immortal renegade cyborg cop should tell you just how this bodes for the bad guys.
