Winner of the 2014 Bookie Award, “Specimen 25” is a short story which explores the intersection of two worlds from the perspective of a hormone-fueled student, as he discovers the unforeseen consequences of his brief encounter with a desperate and determined classmate. Jims hears a story from a friend at lunch, involving rumors about a girl he’s secretly been attracted to despite her status as the class pariah. His curiosity is too strong for him to ignore, pushing him to make a decision that will haunt him forever and expose him to a new reality he isn’t at all prepared to face. He doesn’t know what the hell he’s getting involved in, until it’s way too late.
If you haven’t read my interview with the Bookies at Here Booky Booky, I recommend you take a look. There’s some stuff in there about “Specimen 25” and part of my inspiration for writing the story.
One of my characters started his own blog, and he posted about his own trip into the world of “Specimen 25.” You can read about that at this link.
