I can't remember the title, nor any exact parts of the text, also it was quite a poor story but it somehow seemed to respond to Ward Moore's "Lot" which is one of my favorites. I've read this other version in Galaktika Magazin (Hungarian) but lost the paper version so now I'm looking for it. It was the relaunched, A5 sized version, way after 2004.

The couple traveled in a car, driving towards the mountains because it was raining and somehow they knew it was going to rain forever; something like Genesis flood, can't remember exactly. But then they stopped at a gas station and the woman thought it all over and stayed with the station operator instead of going back to the car. She was very happy with her decision - just as Mr Jimmon in the original story.

So, anyone heard of such?

  • There was a sequel; Lot's Daughter could that be it?

    That should make it easier. Fewer volumes to look through. Though probably fewer people who read it too.

    Was it possibly Rings of Ice by Piers Anthony?

    What the heck, they're publishing the new Galaktika every month, so now there's over a hundred issues? I was wrong, it won't be easier. You can find all of them in FSzEK, but it might take you days to find the right story if you don't recognize it from the table of contents.
