Cover Reveal: Survival of the Fittest

I know. Two posts in one day. What am I thinking? I’m thinking that you might want to see the cover for my new short that is coming out next week. It is called Survival of the Fittest. Here is the blurb:

A hundred years after Earth’s final environmental collapse, the human population is scattered, living in deep caves or underground to escape the heat and radiation that still ravage the planet. But some species adapted better to the changes. Sam, a genetically engineered lizard, is part of an ongoing program to discover what allowed his kind to evolve so quickly. Intelligent, able to communicate, and make decisions, is Sam a person or an experiment? When another survivor of the devastation threatens the promising food crops being developed, Sam may be given the chance to prove himself.

“Survival of the Fittest” is a short novelette, set in a future dystopian Earth, where humans have caused the destruction of much of the climate. It will be available from the finest e-book retailers soon.

It is on the cusp of being a long short story or a short novelette. It depends on where you draw the line. It was fun to write, and I hope you like it, too. This is the cover, designed by Kream of the Kropp Techworks:

Survival of the Fittest (Front Cover)
