Everyone in Shaw's jumped up at once, grabbing at their things and within seconds rushing toward the exit built into the bar the families had used a few minutes before. I caught a glimmer of sunlight out of the corner of my eye, and looked to the front of Shaw's to see the slow unfolding of huge sheets of metal. I froze in a mixture of amazement and disbelief, watching an enormous shaft slowly rising, angled, out from beneath Campbell Avenue. It rose at a steady pace into the sky above Shirlington, in front of boutique shops, pastry shops, and restaurants.

    A quick, enjoyable military/sci-fi story about a very possible future for the US, dominated by the dreaded military/industrial complex and in a constant state of alert against a ubiquitous terrorist group. If you pay attention to the news, you'll see that the scenario put forth in the story is not at all far-fetched, and the author does a good job of extrapolating current events to create his future world. This is, I believe, the first self-published ebook I've read, and I believe the author did a commendable job of pushing the plot forward by creating questions about his characters and the future so that as a reader you'll be intrigued enough to continue reading. The author also has a good feel for natural dialogue.I did get the impression that this novelette is a small piece of a larger idea, and I believe it could easily be expanded upon. Overall, a good effort, and worth a read.
