In this week's story,a mentally-disabled savant at a mid-20th-century West Virginia prison is faced with that same decision when the warden gives him a simple task: Build the prison's new electric chair.

109 - Without Eulogy

Today’s story is a sort of sci-fi western, set at the edge of space in a time unknown. Our small cast of protagonists are escorting a sick man to the far edge of the frontier, ostensibly to die. It’s as dangerous a trip as any, and as our protagonists walk further into the wild of that unknown planet, it becomes clear that not all of them will return from their journey alive.
