7500 Words – A Short Story from the universe of The Teleportation Wars
It was supposed to be an easy jump. Captain Ryan Carter and A-Squad were supposed to teleport into the wastelands of North Dakota, scout an abandoned National Guard installation, and then teleport home. Easy.
But nothing is never easy in the wastelands left by Teleportation Wars. When squads are lost in the wastelands the entire base is teleported away.
When Base One’s Jump Master intentionally teleports A-Squad into the heart of nuclear ravaged Houston, Texas, Ryan knows that the Jump Master is a traitor. At the very least he’s stranded A-Squad in the wastelands, away from their families, with no way home. Worse he knows that the entire population of Base One is at risk from the crooked teleportation operator’s treachery and he is sure an attack on the base is imminent.
With only limited supplies and their teleportation-enabled weapons, A-Squad has to find a way back to Base One before the traitorous Jump Master has a chance to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to salvage in the post apocalyptic world of the Teleportation Wars.
