Explore Humanity's Twilight combined with a Quote from Winston Churchill

Yesterday I was proofing a story "Seconds of Eternity" for the audiobook version of my short story collection, Genre Shotgun.

The story starts with a quote from Winston Churchill:

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case...You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

It's followed by a question: If it was true in the past, why should the future be any different?

"Seconds of Eternity" tells the story of Major Mac 'Race' Parson, aboard his outdated Starfury IV as the pilot plays his part in a final desperate bid as humanity struggles through its final throes battling the invading Truhl-Ghats. The twilight of the human race, coming to an end.

Consider checking out "Seconds of Eternity" and other stories in my short story collection: Genre Shotgun. (Yes, a little direct self promotion, but also something I think might be of interest, especially as it may have some relevance to readers today).
