Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box by Mira Grant

Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box by Mira Grant
2011, Orbit

Synopsis: Every week five friends get together to play a game-- a game they call the Apocalypse Game. It's a fun time with chips and beer and plotting the end of the world. Except this time, one of them is missing and the stakes are higher than ever before.

The Good: I never buy short stories, but since I've loved everything written by Mira Grant, I decided to give this one a shot. It was much shorter than I expected, but the story was totally worth the purchase. This story was utterly captivating. Good premise, huge tension, abrupt on-point ending, every element of the story perfectly executed. This is how you do a short story.

The Bad: Not a thing.
