“Terminal” up at Tor dot com

My story “Terminal” is now up for a free read at tor.com. It can also be purchased as an e-book for 99c. The story was acquired and edited by the legendary Ellen Datlow. The story is 6000 words.

“Terminal” by Lavie Tidhar is an emotionally wrenching science fiction story about people, who, either having nothing to lose or having a deep desire to go into space, travel to Mars via cheap, one-person, one-way vehicles dubbed jalopies. During the trip, those in the swarm communicate with each other, their words relayed to those left behind.
