Trans-Antarctica on The New Flesh

Trans-Antarctica came about as a result of a flash fiction challenge on a writers site that I used to use. The prompt was simply “Train”.
I started off with the idea of something being loose on a train. Something with large pointy teeth and a bad attitude that slaughters the passengers.
Now, if I was on a train that had a monster on it, using the passengers as chew toys, the obvious course of action would be to jump off and take your chances with the fall. I was not going to let my characters get off that easily, so I made the environment at least as bad as the monster. Hence the Trans-Antarctic bullet train from Sydney to Buenos Ares was born.
And the ending…well, you know me. I like to throw the occasional surprise into the mix.
Hope you enjoy it. If you do, then check out some of my other, older work in the stories section.
