This disturbing little piece of flash fiction is part of the Nebula Award-winning science fiction author James Patrick Kelly's StoryPod, a series of 52 shorts recorded for Audible. In this tale - more of a scene, really - an anxious woman waiting at a doctor's office discovers that there is something worse than being sick. Kelly himself is a smooth and friendly-sounding narrator, and it's fun to hear him introduce and explain the tale. A dash of sound effects and fun music make the recording sparkle.
"Could Be Worse" is a never-before-published story, written and narrated by Hugo and Nebula Award-winner James Patrick Kelly.
