It’s been almost a year since a global outbreak of Spontaneous Human Combustion began, and society is finding unique ways to deal with the epidemic. Meanwhile, James Penner is just trying to keep his head down. But with his wife growing increasingly distant and his boss breathing down his neck, Penner finds coping is getting more difficult every day.
When he meets a mysterious woman named Amanda and makes an astounding discovery, everything changes for Penner.
Spontaneous is a speculative short story with truth at its heart. An engaging blend of science-fiction, mystery and humor inspired by authors like Philip K. Dick, Douglas Adams, Stephen King and Neil Gaiman.
This is a GREAT short story, fast and to the point!
Dear author: It’s the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not the Center for Disease Control. It’s highly unlikely that David Attenborough would narrate a Nova episode on spontaneous combustion, seeing as how he’s a wildlife biologist, not a physicist. And last but not least, “He lie there in his bed”??? That’s the point at which I stopped reading. If you’re too lazy to use correct grammar or get the name of the CDC right, I don’t have time to read your crappy book.
