Rejectivitus – Speed Trap

The rejection comments on “Speed Trap” from NFG give me a better idea how others see the story. I am trunking the story based on them. I see the story as a modern horror story about a security system that is much too agressive. The NFG reader seems very concerned with the technical plausability. The Kit reference stings a little. I think Christine is reference to a King story which I have never read.

“This starts out interesting but rapidly becomes an implausible computer-operated bastard son of Kit and Christine. I would anticipate a super-security system with the suggested capacity would attempt to remove the driver from risk – run away – rather than try repeatedly to run down the thief, getting stuck in the process. It would not lock the doors when in the presence of a fire.”

I need to write more stories!
