The Time Traveling Healer
By: Jim Bates
Mahdi awoke next to a bubbling brook in a strange land. Thirstily he drank from it.
The pandemic that decimated the world in the twenty-first century had left him shattered. He'd tried to help but couldn't. A time-traveling healer could not be a failure, yet he was. Oh, the soul-crushing agony.
He'd been summoned to the land of Anon where a pandemic was ravaging the region's cherished unicorns. A chance to redeem himself? He hoped so.
Mahdi began walking.
Somewhere a unicorn was in need. He'd find it and use all his powers to save it. Or die trying.
