The Eden Effect by Paul Lincoln

This short story packed quite a punch.  The story drew me in and kept me involved throughout.  I have to say I finished it in one setting; I couldn’t put it down.  Or rather I didn’t dare put it down.  It had all the comedy and tragedy of a full length novel packed neatly into a short story.

I wasn’t too surprised at the ending; just saddened.  Cause and effect are shockingly close together sometimes and this story brings that forefront for all to see.  I really liked the way the author wove the story over the generations and didn’t have any problems following the logic of the decisions made by the actors.

I very much enjoyed reading this short story and pray this never happens to me.
