Publication: “A Tank Only Fears Four Things,” by Seth Dickinson

By | May 15, 2014

Congratulations to Alpha graduate Seth Dickinson (2006 & 2007), whose short story “A Tank Only Fears Four Things” appears in this month’s issue of Lightspeed:

A tank fears only four things. One of them is a fuel shortage. Another is a man with an anti-tank missile. But the T-80 main battle tank can fire missiles from its own gun barrel, like a tiger who has eaten her hunter and digested him into a new and dangerous tooth. American tanks in the war couldn’t do this.

You can read the whole story at Lightspeed’s website, and don’t miss the Author Spotlight where Seth talks about how the story came to be. A complete list of Alpha graduates’ publications and awards is here.
