A Good Place Not to Be
by Robin Rodriguez
In the madcap, totalitarian world of The Company (ABC Incorporated), misplaced loyalty can get you killed. Simone needs to be seen as a true believer, but the demands to prove herself keep shifting. First there’s a train ride where a box leaks a mysterious red fluid, then she’s tumbled into a harsh, new land with a threatening job interview and an employee work festival that includes wrestling matches, prison cells, and deadly carnival acts as this darkly humorous interrogation story looks at the cost of maintaining your belief in something no matter how cruel or wrong it becomes.
