At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
What if you were tasked with creating a weapon of mass destruction by your government? While you are qualified, there are others who are more qualified. Unfortunately, your government has made it necessary for them to leave the country. You know if you don't succeed, dire consequences will await you. What do you do?
Also, make sure to check out Nick Wilford's "what if" (and his new book Black & White) over at Unicorn Bell today.
