Book Description

It's Gene's retirement day: he is starting a new life, in a new body. Every sixty-five years, Gene pays a visit to the nearest Next Time Clinic to clone himself.

As he gathers up synaptic impressions, ready for download to fresh neurons, the day takes a turn for the worse. The most anticipated day of his life is interrupted by an invasion: armored brutes intent on disintegrating the populace appear in the city. Gene is furious; he won't abide anything standing in his way today.

Despite the chaos--the government declares martial law and communication is interrupted--Gene makes his way to the clinic, memory discs in hand. All is well until his car is nearly blown up and Gene is forced to find his way on foot through the rubble-strewn streets.

After surviving a close encounter with one of the invaders, Gene makes it to the clinic. Reluctantly, the doctor agrees to clone Gene. Only after does Gene learn that the invaders are targeting young people only--those capable of reproduction.

In a desperate rush to escape, Gene scrambles through the city to find an evacuation route. The situation is dire; the military is shuttling people off the planet. As Gene boards a ship, he wonders if this will be his last time alive. A fellow passenger gives Gene some news that sends him into hysterics. Maybe this is his last next time.


"Last Next Time" is a short story that runs about 40 pages in print form.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too SHORT!!!! 16 Mar. 2011
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very short short. i was really disappointed at how short it was in fact. this is in dire need of at least another 4-5 parts to this story at least. it is rather open ended so i can only imagine there will be follow ups. The subject is quite old hat; old man wants to keep his youth forever, but done in a futuristic setting. i enjoyed reading what was there and i think there is strong potential for this story if a clever plot twist can be worked in there on future installments? hint hint. i cant really give a knowledgable critique about structure and what not, but i thought there was a good pace to the story, and having also read one of his other books, i think he has the ability to word and structure dialogue between characters in a free and easy way that feels natural (if that makes sense?!) but ultimately for the very small price you pay its definately worth it if there are any follow ups.
