Review by: Margo H on March 02, 2016 :
A short read but an awesome one! Characters well developed and the story not so incredulous. I found myself glued to the pages and I must say I did not figure the ending out on this one. The only downside to the story is that it was so short and it could have been expanded on, to find the crew either settling on a new planet or getting back to earth to 'settle' with the Reid Corporation -- using the forklift!!

Review by: Tsana Dolichva on July 24, 2012 :
What happens when a company spends piles of money on a spaceship filled with cryogenically frozen settlers that the settlers aren’t keen on boarding? You treat the mission as a loss leader, of course. A bleakly amusing tale.
