Imagine a Mars that has been transformed into a world much like rural America.

Imagine a Mars that has been transformed into a world much like rural America is today. Small towns. Farms. Churches.

Into this futuristic backdrop comes Dr. John Simon from Earth, ready to take on the job of doctor for the Milton Colony. Only the doctor soon discovers that those who break the law in Milton Colony are branded for their punishment. Literally branded.

He cannot live with that. Things must change in Milton Colony. To do so means not only changing the mindsets and the local government, but it also means revealing all the colonists' nasty little secrets.

"The Impulse to Punish" is a short story of approximately 10,000 words, or 40 standard pages.
