Product Description

Product Description

Bestselling author J.A. Konrath brings us a gruesome story of the depths a person will go to in order to survive.

When his deep space mission goes awry, Lieutenant Jehrico Stiles crash-lands on an unknown planet. With breathable air, drinkable water, and a friendly native species, the planet seems almost utopian. The only trouble is, Stiles is starving. The planet’s vegetation is toxic, and there’s nothing else to eat. As his hunger grows and his body weakens, his definition of edible starts to change. He discovers that sometimes survival means doing things you would rather not—and eating things that would rather not be eaten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic Konrath short. 12 May 2014
By Nev
Format:Kindle Edition
This is just brilliant. According to the authors notes this written by Mr Konrath when he was still in college. An big talent at an early age.

This is a story set in the future. A spaceship crash lands on a distant planet after being sucked through a wormhole. There is only one survivor and this story is told through the voice logs he keeps.

Just how far would you go in order to survive!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm? 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not for the squeamish, it poses an interesting dilemma of survival - just how far are you prepared to go to stay alive?

Although this promotes itself as a short story and is well written, I found it a little too short for the price, feeling slightly short changed by the somewhat abrupt ending.

Unusual format that works in this context.
