This story originally appeared in Tales of Tinfoil: Stories of Paranoia and Conspiracy in April 2015, curated and edited by David Gatewood.

"By turns gripping, heartbreaking, and inspiring, Chukotka is a tale of survival against the elements -- and of a fragile trust formed between two men from vastly different worlds. Bale's characters come to life, and they will stay with you long after the final paragraph."

David Gatewood, bestselling editor of The Robot Chronicles and Tales of Tinfoil

"Stunning work from a fresh new voice in science fiction. Highly recommended."

Ernie Lindsey, USA Today bestselling author of Sara's Game and Super

"Courage is thrust upon us by necessity. Gripping and realistic, Chukotka captures the bitter struggle and confusion that arises as the Bering Strait reels beneath an unnatural storm. It is both engrossing and compelling."

Peter Cawdron, bestselling author of Anomaly and Xenophobia

"Tense and compelling, Bale weaves a page-turning and heart-wrenching survival tale of two cultures."

Jennifer Ellis, bestselling author of The Mosquito Constellation and A Pair of Docks

Two Alaskan cold-water surfers sail the Bering Strait in search of the gnarliest waves. A dying Chukchi hunter leaves his village for the desolate Siberian tundra, seeking to prove his usefulness to the wayward youth of his people. When the perfect man-made storm provokes the towering black waves of the Bering, and surges over the frozen Russian wilderness, it throws together old and young, East and West, forcing them to confront their prejudices in a desperate fight for survival.

This is a short story which could be read in an hour or so. It runs to around 50 paperback pages.
