Review – Hunter – a short story by Wil Wheaton

Let’s get this out of the way. Wil Wheaton played Ensign Wesley Crusher on the TV series, Star Trek the Next Generation. He has carried on with acting and other creative endeavors and you can catch up with him at his personal website.

With that out of the way, the purpose of this post is to review Wil Wheaton’s short story, Hunter, available from Hunter is licensed Creative Commons (CC-BY-NC-SA,) so it can be downloaded and shared freely. It’s only about 2500 words, so it should be a quick read. The author describes it as “a short Sci-Fi story set in a dark and desperate world.”

After the invasion, when the colonists were reduced to a dwindling force of resistance fighters, Pyke decided to surrender and work for the invaders. He became a very efficient hunter, capturing rebels and turning them over to his cruel masters. As his victims grew in number, he found himself enjoying the work, taking sadistic pleasure in their fear and pain. And now his latest quarry, a young girl, is running into a trap.

    Hmm. I’ll read it tonight since I downloaded it on my pc. It turns out I have unresolved connectivity issues with my kindle, that’s why I can’t get anything loaded on it aside from Amazon’s offerings.
    It’s just too hard. :/
    How can you not like a review?
