What Happened to Taylor & Nova after seeing the Statue of Liberty at the end of Planet of the Apes?
That’s the question my short story, The Pacing Place, answers in Tales from the Forbidden Zone, a new anthology published this month about Planet of the Apes.
From that moment, across the and into the Forbidden Zone, Taylor and Nova face unique challenges. Compressing that into a short story was a lot of fun and the tale is one that I really believe is heart-rending. Deb gave me the core of the idea and streamed the center of the story; always a great combination.
Who will Taylor speak to? Will there be others? Will the Apes come after them?
