McArthur’s World is a frozen planet which has been bled dry by mineral mining corporations for three decades. When there is nothing left but ice and snow, the last freighter lifts off carrying away every remaining human being. When it crashes in a wilderness no one has ever returned from, there are only two survivors: a miner who wants to get back to the children he has not seen for two years, and the woman who forced him to come to McArthur’s World in the first place.
They think they’re alone, until the shrieks in the darkness come.
What It Means To Survive is a short science-fiction story by Lucas Bale.
This short story is another example of brilliant writing. Lucas Bale is an author to keep an eye on.
