A Scientist in Limbo

Enjoy the second place winning story for our annual short story Halloween contest.

Written by Anna Lee

The chatter stirred the cortex of my memories, the existence of the conversation seemed far too bizarre, and I began to wonder if a lobotomy was a rational solution to this unmethodical problem.

Bizarre did not even touch the surface—every tone, every hair, every wrinkle in my forehead stared back at me.

Perhaps this experiment is wrong. Perhaps altering reality is immoral—even despicable. Perhaps I have a phobia of myself. Perhaps insanity has consumed me.

“As I was saying doc, I highly doubt that I’m your doppelganger. No, I think you’ve opened a portal between our dimensions.”
