From The Blackness Within anthology by Apex Book Company
Blake Richardson gets more than he bargained for when he interviews for a job at the worlds largest robotics company.
“Ever shot a fifty-caliber rifle before?”
“It’ll change your life Blake. That much power in your hands? The very existence of whatever you point it at decided on by the slightest twitch of your finger? You get to be a god for a tenth of a second. I want to be there, to see what kind of god you are.”
Big Game is a short story by dark fiction author Conrad Zero. Big Game combines corporate espionage, an eerie secluded cabin in the Canada wilderness, the hunting trip of a lifetime, and the Biggest Game of all.
Big Game was written specifically for the Apex Book Company anthology titled The Blackness Within. You can read about my discovery of the anthology here on my blog, and the acceptance of my story here.
Big Game is my first professionally published story. Shroud Magazine says I “…wax Serling” in this short work of dark fiction. If it were a video, it certainly would be shot in black-and-white.
