The Darling Angel by Harris Tobias
Faced with an incurable disease the inhabitants of a dying colony turn to superstition and irrational hope.
and Waking Up In The Electric Fishbowl by Andrew Dunn
First things first, I wasn't sure how to end this one so I included two prospective endings. One is designed to connect this to my previous story about the pay phone at the end of the universe. Please tell me which finish seems to work best - or if I should try a new approach.
This story - and a longer version is forthcoming - incorporates several intertwined themes that unfold in a deep water research station where things haven't gone well for the occupants. 2001: A Space Oddity, The Cure, an Oedpius conflict, and a fire re-cast as a malicious personification are among the things involved in this one.
I hope you enjoy!
