Christopher Barker talks to Hampton Reviews about his short story "Obsolete" - published in the Derby Scribes 2011 Anthology.
Christopher says, "This story ('Obsolete') is a story I began writing roughly 7 years ago. The first half had been edited and worked to death since then, when we decided to go ahead with the Anthology I decided it was the perfect impetus for me to finally finish the story.
"The story itself was inspired by a gate-door set into a wall that I used to walk past on my way to work. On it was stenciled the word ‘Obsolete’; I have no idea why, but it started the story brewing and seemed the obvious choice for the title."
