“The Black Side of Memory” by Lael Salaets

Writers of the Future XXVI

If William Gibson had been more preoccupied with military than corporations, he might have written this. Two military men were involved in a military operation, but their memories were erased. However, they’d recorded their memories and left it with a village girl, so they cross the desert to retrieve it. Meanwhile, government officials are hot on their heels to stop them.

An intense military adventure. Minor: We never really get a sense of what was covered up. Apparently, there’s a novel forthcoming in this universe and hopefully that will clear things up. It might add an intriguing dynamic.
