A Delightful Short Story

The world is coming to an end and the only naturally cool place remaining is the cold pools.
Lewis and Karen spend all they have to go there for their last, their very last holiday together. Karen is suffering from skin cancer and has very little time left......
What a lot is packed into these 3,000 words! The Cold Pools is a horror story set in a dystopian future world where nothing is quite as it seems. But it is also a very poignant love story. Beautifully-written, Mr Ward manages to create an alternative world, believable characters and a thought-provoking plot with the apparent ease that marks a master of the short story form.
It is very refreshing to read a story that works as well as this one. ( )
