A Suspense Short Story from the author of the Evan Gabriel Scifi/Adventure Trilogy

A massive global social network announces an initiative to encourage its nearly one billion users to donate organs and body parts with just the click of a mouse. Millions of potential transplant recipients rejoice, but there is a dark side. For a young, newly engaged professional in Portland Oregon, that dark side arrives wearing a smile and designer suit during a chance encounter at a train station.

Have you given any thought to the recent announcement of the Facebook Organ Donation initiative? What are the pitfalls and dangers of socially networking body parts? Should you OPT-OUT?

Ripped from today's social networking headlines, OPT-OUT is a short story of approximately 3,600 words. 

Also available from Steve Umstead: Gabriel's Redemption (Book 1), Gabriel's Return (Book 2), Gabriel's Revenge (Book 3), Gabriel's Journey (complete collection), Gabriel: Zero Point (prequel), The Awakening (scifi short), Special Delivery (horror short)

~ "...has a way of putting you right into the scene, whether it be on a Jamaican beach, a rundown apartment or the icy surface of a distant planet." 
~ "...writing is solid, as good as it gets, not only in the genre, but in general." 
~ "...deals with issues like honor, responsibility and human nature. While deep in thematic content the forward thrust of the story never stops."
~"...delivers on the promise of high-quality fiction we might not otherwise have ever seen."
~"...offers us a shining example of why independent authors are here to stay. "
