My Brother's Keeper
by William Mangieri
What would you be willing to do to save a soul from oblivion? Abduction? Possession? Murder?
A space traveler lands on a primitive planet, and contends with the backwards philosophy of some brown-robed brethren as he tries to rescue his own brother's spirit.
"My Brother's Keeper" is a short, speculative fiction, and is in the collection "Still Even More Things I Could Get Out of My Mind."
