Death and Faxes: A Science Fiction Story

16 pages12 minutes


Calder is normally a kick-ass hype comm tech, but because she's too afraid to transport via interstellar body faxing, she's spending time and credits to travel home the old-fashioned way by space ship. Then she discovers through her Paradise Operating Interface (in the form of a Red Messenger devil, no less) that the pilgrim ship won't be making its scheduled stop for her transfer. Instead, the ship will end in everyone's destruction—as planned.
