Pop Squad

“Pop Squad” is out in the Oct/Nov issue of F&SF. Gordon Van Gelder included a warning label on it, noting that this story might not be a good one to read to your kids.


  1. Pop Squad was amazing. I must have read it four times and was still blown away. :D

  2. Glad you liked it. I wasn’t sure how it would fly with readers. My wife hated it; I used mannerisms from our son to develop the children in the story. The whole thing ended up striking a little too close to home for her taste.
