"Two Weeks After": 12/03/07
The six story in October/ November issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction is the fiction debut of M. Ramsey Chapman and I hope it isn't the last. "Two Weeks After" is another ghost story but this one isn't a thinly disguised socialist discourse; it is an entertaining and chilling gothic thriller.
The story follows Jack and April as they return to their loved ones for one last goodbye. Chapman doesn't waste time with explanations. These two just show up and go about spending these two precious hours with their spouses.
As things unfold it becomes clear that these aren't exactly happy reunions. Having set up these reunions, Chapman goes back and begins to pepper the narrative with glimpses of what happened two weeks prior.
I'm not going to say anything more because I don't want to spoil the ending. Get yourself a copy of last month's Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine and enjoy this delightful debut!
