The Tetradome Run
by Spencer Baum
When the crime wave peaked in the early 70s, and Nixon signed the Redemption Act, no one bothered to imagine what public execution might look like fifty years in the future.
No one imagined that The Tetradome Run would become the most popular show in America.
This year’s show puts convicted felons in a race with genetically engineered monstrous creations. Murderers, rapists, terrorists, and thieves–they all will take their place at the starting line, and the most notorious among them is Jenna Duvall, the college student who shot a Senator.
Jenna swears she’s innocent, and as she runs for her life in the Tetradome, a small-town journalist uncovers a shocking counter-narrative that suggests there is more to Jenna’s story than anyone knows.
