This is the part of my 100 Short Stories in 2014 challenge.
This story is part of George R. R. Martin’s Wild Cards multi-author shared-world universe , which I have never encountered before, but which I now want to read more off. I tried to read London Falling by Paul Cornell last year without luck – to my annoyance it didn’t catch me. I say to my annoyance because I really like Paul Cornell on SF Squeecast and I want to like the writing of the internet people I follow. So I am very happy that I really like The Elephant in the Room.
