Pops by Bob WilliamsGenre: Horror
It is known as The Descent. The event that brought on the fall of humanity and unleashed the violent, hungry Freaks upon the World. The mysterious pirate radio voice Doctor Midnite has called for the Regulars—the humans—who are left to “Take it back.” Jonathan “Pops” Poplovitch and his team of “Exterminators” answered the call and attempted to take down the nefarious Admiral Shen, who’d set up shop in Columbus, Ohio. They failed.
Pops has been mortally wounded in his final battle with Shen. In his final moments Pops recalls pivotal moments of his life. In his final testimony, as he confronts his own mortality in the presence of an unseen listener, Pops will learn his greatest lesson.
