via A Chat with Debut Horror Novelist Allison M. Dickson.
A hungry alien substance has traveled to Earth following a doomed Lunar mission, and it’s consuming everything it touches, leaving behind drifts of gray death. No life form stands a chance, but Clyde Jackson is tougher than most. He’s seen war and he’s been in plenty of foxholes. Now he’s living through the end of the world one day at a time in a panic room that has become his only refuge. It’s only a matter of time before the ventilation fails, and it’ll only take a single gray speck to end it all…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had very high expectations for this short story and Ms. Dickson did not disappoint. Well written a always. Exciting, thought-provoking, timely, timeless. No doubt it deserves 5-stars. I expect this story to stand the test of time. Way to go, Ms. Dickson – another gem.
