Another author who sadly hasn’t posted for a decade. I think ‘Redemption’ is his best by far, though the Superman and Supergirl shorts do have some cracking one-liners. ‘Redemption’ is a thoughtful story, well written and neatly done. It’s a romance gone badly and sadly wrong.

Jack Randal is an ex-Army Apache pilot, shot down in Iraq and retired on 30% disability. Taken on in an avionics firm, he’s progressed to VP on merit alone, though it didn’t hurt that ten years ago he married the boss’s daughter. Today, he and her parents drop in on her hotel room in Dallas to find her cheating. Until that awful moment of discovery, Jack had totally believed that Gloria was his soulmate, his whole world. In an incredibly hectic weekend, he arranges to divorce her and resign from his job, leaving everything behind. His father-in-law throws everything at him to try to persuade him to give them another chance, and he’s about to do so, when he gets suspicious about Gloria’s ideas for her redemption. Driving over to her parents house, he finds a swingers’ party going on. She’s been cheating on him pretty much their whole marriage, doing things with other men that she’s never done for him. With the active connivance of the in-laws he had loved and respected.

WARNING: The ‘burn the bitch’ brigade won’t like the ending at all, but, as the author explains in his blog, his character simply wouldn’t behave in that way. Yes, the first time I read it, I was a little disappointed with the way it ended, but on reflection, I agree with the author that Jack would have done exactly what he did do, the actions of an honourable man betrayed beyond his capacity to forgive. There is an argument that he was treated with complete contempt by the three closest people in his life and that 'redemption' is the wrong title for this story. But Skibum has made me REALLY think about what he has written, and that is in itself worthy of praise.

Give this one a go. It’s well written, got a great plot, and, like the author says, the characters run away with it.
