Asylum: a story


Way back in 1993, I wrote this piece of fiction as part of my novel, FREEZE FRAMES, originally published in 1995. It contains my vision of what might happen in a United States dominated by Christian Dominionists. Now, unfortunately, it seems relevant again, so I thought I’d put it up here.

One of the problems with writing science fiction these days is the speed at which technology changes.  You’ll notice that no one in this story has a cell phone. There are other discrepancies, but  I hope they don’t get in your way as you read.
