"Port Radium"

Finished my latest alternate history this evening, "Port Radium". Comes in at 3,905 words; contracted over 300 words this evening in final edit.

This is the story where Douglas MacArthur's family immigrates to Germany instead of America and he is an officer in the German Army in World War II.

Nice piece of business: Field Marshal Macarther smokes a meerschaum pipe instead of a corncob.

This is the 120th short story I've ever written, the 8th this year. I'll figure out where to send it tomorrow, I already have 17 stories circulating.
