"the gravediggers" by dr. philip edward kaldon
CrossTIME Anthology Vol. III Santa Fe NM: CrossTIME, 2004 pp. 44-63
"Thirty seconds..." Captain Craig Upton stood in quiet stern contemplation, watching the lines converge on his main battle screen. It was two years into this bastard war and he had survived eight of these battles in command of the Unified Star Fleet medium cruiser USFS Deneb (CGM-204). He hated this part, the waiting. "Twenty seconds..."
The dirty little secret of interstellar war: someone has to clean up the mess from a relativistic wreck. Radar Specialist Ken Walaciowski, newly assigned to the USFS Marabou, has no idea what's in store for him or why his new radar can simultaneously track sixty-four billion objects. Selected in June 2004 (Honorable Mention) Published August 2004
Available for $12.95 via Crossquarter Publishing and Amazon.com.
