Six Seconds Left by David Hopkins

A while back I read David Hopkins' short story "Six Seconds Left" for an audio fiction podcast. I'm love the story. Ms. Chris Humphrey worked her audio engineering awesomeness on it. The project was a co-production between my theatre company Audacity an the sci-fi and comics folks at Space-Gun Studios. The image above, that accompanies the podcast, is by Space-Gun co-founder Jake Ekiss. Jake is the one that brought me on board the project.
