New piece of flash fiction: “Morning on Mars," by Kent Gutschke

“Morning on Mars” (2009), a new piece of flash fiction by Kent Gutschke, was published recently on his blog, Martian Death Ray. Here's the opening:

“Elysium Planitia, Mars 2031. Black boots use air intake - marked NOT A STEP - for a step, then propel the safety-orange-colored flight suit over the fuselage and into the heavily padded seat.”

Kent Gutschke is a “Martian-born writer and artist living on the third planet from the star, Sol.”
