This is the part of my 100 Short Stories in 2014 challenge.
Part of Lightspeed Magazine: Women Destroy Science Fiction, which I backed on kickstarter together with almost 3000 other people.
This story was deeply touching and very humanizing. It gave a view into life on a spaceship and a glimpse into psyches of the crew.
To say much more requires me to put a spoiler tag here.
The mood of the story is just so great for what the story is trying to do. Bravo! Once again Carrie Vaughn is convincing me to seek out more of her fiction.
