Tyler Keevil. Hibakusha. (Interzone #226 Jan/Feb 2010).

London has been laid waste by a nuclear bomb, and we follow one survivor as he volunteers yet again on a clear-up taskforce, desperate to get to Ground Zero, and closer to where his lover died. The bleak landscape is a disturbing one if you are familiar with London, and we follow the protagonist as he finally makes it, seeking desperately for some token of rememberance of the existence of his lover, and whether he is willing to stay behind, or fight to make a new life.
