March 11th – Human Error – Jay Lake (Interzone #226)
Another science fiction story, this one revolving around a female deep space miner and the discovery of a possibly alien artifact on a large asteroid rock. The world creation in this story is consistent and detailed. A really good example of how to give the reader just enough information to build the setting as the story unfolds. The tensions between the three person mining crew create a solid emotional core to the deep space drama. Excellent ending as well. The whole thing put me in mind of the superb ‘Moon’ directed by Duncan Jones, which is about the best compliment I could give this great piece of sci-fi.
