A new life on a dying planet. Ms Lowd, as always, writes strong female characters. This one is dealing with a new culture and a new place, while watching the death of a star and her marriage. It amazes me that someone as young as Ms Lowd was when she wrote this piece (she was only 22 when this story made quarter finals in the Writers of the Future competition), understands so clearly the death of a relationship. A very satisfying read.

This was an interesting story. There was a lot in there. It was inspiring and hopeful. The dynamics between the characters felt very real and I could see a lot of myself in the main character. It's great to read a science fiction tale with so much character depth and believability.

Creative as ever. A dying sun, a relationship on the rocks, a life to rebuild... This is a moving piece from Mary with a message of hope even in disaster.
