“If someone offers you a chance to cheat death, the sane response is to accept it, right? Maybe not.”
Nice. Very short: very focused; very powerful. Hard science fiction, but even firmer grasp on the emotions of being alone, unarmed, and … scared to death. Find it on tor.com. Enjoy.
“The moon loomed, familiar and white, filling most of my view as I rotated toward it: my cratered dream; my harsh mistress. The blanched horizon terrified me.”
Nice artwork by Jun Cen, though the phase of the moon and the earth don’t match as they should.
