Daily Kindle Bargain - Disaster Park by Mark Konkel

Disaster Park by Mark Konkel is available on Kindle for 99 cents.


Imagine if you could have been a passenger on the Titanic? Or on the 92nd floor of the North Tower? If there was no danger to you, would you choose to experience “Living History,” the new amusement park ride under development at Delaney Corporation?

Arnie Hetzel, a forensic computer programmer, does not want to consider the question as he’s struggling with his own personal disaster, but when astronauts start appearing in events from 1903 and tests of the “Battle of Gettysburg” fail miserably, Jase Delaney, the genius behind Delaney Corporation, convinces Arnie that his efforts could be therapeutic.

So with only five months until opening, Arnie delves deeper into this living museum--this 360-degree holographic environment where riders experience military battles, infamous disasters, and grisly murders--but as he does, will he be saved from his own tragedy? Or will he find it disrespectful to recreate a mass murder in hologram then charge admission?

From the Reviewers:

"Disaster Park is an excellent look at the ethics and possibility of such an attraction in our future. How many of us would jump at the chance to see what it was like during the sinking of the Titanic, or how scary it was to be on the deck of The Arizona during Pearl Harbor? Especially knowing we would come to no harm. This story was very well-crafted and well-written, as well as exciting and humorous at times.... I enjoyed Disaster Park very much, and would recommend it to anybody interested in disaster fiction like I am."
--Rise Reviews

"I recommend this story and will be looking for Mark Konkel's next one!"
--Patty Inglish
