Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
After overcoming a traumatic past, Katya’s worked hard to get where she is – on Mars. She and her fellow colonists escaped Earth just as a deadly pandemic took hold. And now her life is … not what she anticipated.
It’s difficult to put a finger on why it doesn’t quite meet her expectations. She has great friends, an exciting career, and an ex-girlfriend who – Katya’s sure – wants her back.
But is everything as it seems?
Past Imperfect is a short story set during Livid Skies, SI CLARKE’s forthcoming second novel. It’s written for people who enjoy science fiction that challenges their preconceptions.
This is a work of neurodiverse, culturally diverse, gender-bendy, socio-politico-economic, drunken-arguments-in-the-pub science fiction – not bang-bang-pew-pew science fiction.
