The future isn't a paradise for everyone.

All the important buildings and walls are covered in nanotechnology, protecting them from the wind and rain.

And graffiti artists.

Skull doesn't want to escape her sweet obsessions, her day dreams and her dream men. But when her best friend "finds" a can of nan-paint, thinking he can use it to tag his name on the big wall in DC with all the names of the dead soldiers carved in it, Skull finds herself in a story far weirder than any of her dreams.

Originally published in the anthology In the Shadow of the Wall, edited by Byron Tetrick, an all-original anthology of fiction stories concerning the Vietnam War.

Publisher: Knotted Road Press
