The more attentive amongst you will have noticed that despite trying to do one fresh science-fiction short story per week, I haven’t posted one since the 21st last month. Unfortunately, as then, life got in the way.
This one has been tough, but it’s finally done. It’s called Spacehopper and it’s about migrant travellers of the future—interstellar hobos, if you will—who travel around on sub-lightspeed cryonic barges. Specifically, it’s about one born in Southend in 2007.
