#14 - Melbourne Anthology Series - Book 1, ‘Winning The Ultimate Flag’ (Chapters 1 to 3)

July 8, 2018

This week I'm doing something different.......I'm trying my hand at doing an audiobook, but the story is one that I have written!

I read the first three chapters of my first short story. It will be part of an anthology series called 'The Melbourne Anthology', a series of eight short stories of different genres set in Melbourne. The first book is a dystopian sci fi sports story called 'Winning The Ultimate Flag'.

In a dystopian future, Australian Rules Football has been turned into a death sport, fully funded and organised by a tyrannical online gambling company. The strongest and fiercest athletes are trained since the age of eight to compete in this bloodsport, and survival after five seasons grants players their freedom. A hardened veteran plagued with guilt is set for retirement in three matches time. He must do everything to survive so he can hang up the boots as a free man.
