I just heard from Atomjack Magazine, and it seems they have decided to publish “Dave Jones and the Survivor” in their next issue.
This story is based on a real life experience I had flying from Vancouver to Dallas. Two men with the same name ended up assigned to the same seat. In real life, neither man was a danger to anyone, and the older of the two men was given an open seat in first class, instead.
Fortunately, the science fiction version of the story will be a touch more exciting.
